We are biologically programmed for a sleep renewal cycle that includes nighttime rest as well as a period of daytime sleep. It is this daytime sleep requirement that we chronically ignore in the name of more activity and presumed productivity. But increasingly, research clearly reveals that the lack of a daytime sleep segment is detrimental, resulting in higher incidence of accidents, lowered productivity, slowed reaction time, and irritability.
On the other hand, studies of planned napping indicate significant benefits such as enhanced memory, greater creativity, heightened efficiency and systemic protection against a wide range of health risks (such as weight gain, diabetes, cardiac events, and mood disturbances). But even those who understand these risks and benefits may be unsure about how to design and practice a brief but replenishing power nap.
The Ultimate Power Nap program provides a comprehensive program for planned, restorative napping. This 2-CD set provides even the most inexperienced napper with powerful skills for mental and physical renewal. The first CD in this program introduces the listener to the 'art and science of power napping', through a guided self-analysis of personal sleep cycle deficits, then on to how to design an effective power nap. From there, a first practice segment uses the author s powerful guided visualizations and hypnotic suggestions to teach the listener how to shift effortlessly into deeper states of physical and mental ease in almost any environment. The second CD contains the actual power nap program and is full of hypnotic suggestions targeting mind/body renewal. It is designed to be used over and over and will leave the listener refreshed, alert and without grogginess. Like immersive language studies, practice and repetition with the Ultimate Power Nap training program yields ease and fluency with this new skill set.
This program will benefit those in a wide variety of vocational settings including the service professions, corporate environments, civil servants, manual workers, teachers and students, the arts, and a host of other professions. Personal applications are unlimited and may be of particular help to those with health issues or those seeking to foster heightened well-being.
