Earn a little money, have the kids clean out and sell there old toys and clothes. Also a good old fashion lemon aid stand is great, it teaches kids very quickly about money and dealing with people.2016-02-09 22.46.54-2

Book club and Art Club It’s a fantastic way for them to socialize and read a book.  Make it fun let your kids pick the book. Even if they just read a few chapters or draw pictures to join in the conversation its good constructive fun.IMG_7783

 

Movie night is great,  its fun to watch Dad’s favorite and Moms favorite comedies too. Very nostalgic and always a good conversation starter.

 

Meditate, in this busy world I know it’s hard to stop but just sit unplugged, for 5 minutes in  with your eyes closed unplugged.

You will see how you slowly increase to 10, 15 minutes. You will feel more refreshed and productive. A healthy mind and body makes you more productive and a better problem solver.

No Drugs needed to get a Good Night Sleep!! #Napwell!

Napwell: The World's First Napping Mask for Beauty Sleep No Drugs needed!

 

 

 

 

 
About the Product
The Napwell is the world’s first napping mask. It helps you nap more efficiently by reducing “sleep inertia,” that lousy post-nap feeling of headache/grogginess/lack or motivation to do anything.I am a organic, no drug type of Mom.I like this product because its easy and makes sense.

 

 

The Napwell allows you to set your ideal napping duration depending on the time available in your day. The Napwell’s built-in timer tracks your nap, and shortly before you are ready to wake up, gradually lights up to emulate a sunrise, waking you up at your desired time naturally. No drugs needed!

Check out videos of the Napwell in action on our Kickstarter page! http://napwell.co/ksJ4bly

The Napwell is perfect for anyone seeking to #naptimize his or her life. Whether you’re power-napping at work after a mentally taxing morning, resting on the plane between business meetings, or simply catching some beauty shuteye on your couch at home, the Napwell helps you get to sleep quickly, then wake up gently feeling refreshed and ready to go. 

So far, we've received personal messages from backers who: 
1. Are new mothers who need a quick power-nap from their newborn
2. Are couples who sleep in the same bed and want to wake up at different times without disturbing their partner
3. Are frequent flyers and need one to get over jet lag faster
4. Are physicians, residents, and nurses seeking quality rest in the midst of long shifts.

 

Learn About the Brand
I consider myself lucky to work with amazing people at MIT and Harvard Medical School, but it really frustrates me to see my colleagues routinely hampered by small things that have dramatic effects on their productivity. What started as a set of personal projects to help my colleagues with these minor hurdles has evolved into a larger push to develop products that can help the wider population lead more efficient and productive lives.

 

 

I like this product because NO drugs needed,to get sleep. Also as a entrpreneur I like to support new ideas. The first of these products is the Napwell, the world’s first napping mask. The Napwell helps boost productivity by helping people nap more efficiently. Naps are actually really beneficial for mental acuity and physical health.
