It’s the worst feeling in the world – waking up on a Monday morning knowing you have to haul yourself out of your comfy bed and make your way to the office.

Leaving your bed is one of the hardest things you can ever do. However, what if we told you there was a chance you’d never have to leave it again, ever?

A new job has been revealed, which pays an incredible $17,000 for lying in bed for 60 days.

Researchers at France’s space medicine institute are looking for 24 healthy young men to take part in a new study, which required people to stay in bed for two months straight.

Now, it might sound like the dream job – who wouldn’t want to laze about in bed for money? However, there’s a catch…

You can’t leave the bed at any time. Not to shower, not to eat, or even pee.

Volunteers must keep at least one shoulder on the mattress at all times, which means that’s 60 solid days of lying down doing absolutely nothing.

Things would get incredibly boring very quickly, and organisers also expect volunteers to experience muscle loss and drops in bone density.

Experiment coordinator Arnaud Beck told 20 Minutes: “During the first two weeks, our scientists will do a whole series of tests and measurements on the volunteers.

“This will be followed by a 60-day period, during which they must remain in bed, the head slightly inclined downward at less than 6 degrees.”

Leaving your bed is incredibly hard at times, but after 60 solid days under the covers, we’d probably do anything to leave…
