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.

Olympic LESSONS for You and YOUR KIDS!

IMG_3972

 

The Olympics are a great activity for families to watch together and can also offer a number of valuable lessons for kids get kids YEAH I love watching personally but the leasons that are taught to people around the world transcend every age and generation, they resinate with everybody!

These are a just a few  off the top of my head as a MOM!

1.The importance of exercise-   The Olympics are a great time to expose your children to some new ideas for exercising and to encourage them to try a new sport. After Im finished watching the athletes on TV,  I personally want to book a ski trip, or have a little fun with the kids by sliding  down the stairs in a sleeping bag!  So much fun, put pillows in the landing area. Create your own activities inspired by our favorites.IMG_3974

2. Goal setting-The Olympic athletes have spent many hours and many years training in their sport. They didn’t become world-class athletes overnight but rather through a lot of training, perseverance and goal setting. Kids always want instant gradification, but the sthletes and the stories paint a picture of hard work. Goals for something they want to accomplish. This could be within a sport or in a different activity such as getting good grades, excelling at a musical instrument, or learning to paint.  They don’t have to be an Olympian to be successful, but these athletes can definitely serve as good role models for your kids on what it looks like when you set your mind to something and persevere.

3.Sportsmanship- The Goal of the Olympics is to take home a medal for your country, we all know that. Not everyone can be a winner and this is an important lesson for kids to learn. Watch how the athletes in the Olympics react to winning and losing and how they treat their opponents and use this as an example for your kids between good and bad sportsmanship. I loved the example of sportmanship set by Shaun White http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/blogsinternet/57534686-71/halfpipe-shaun-gold-decision.html.csp

4. Diversity and Acceptance– Today, more than ever, kids interact with people of differing ethnicities, religions, and cultures. But how do you teach them to embrace and thrive among the planet's many cultures? I still can't believe being GAY is even a issue in sports, and life.  maybe because I have friends that are gay and just look at people for people, Im still in shock on  Russia 's views. But this Olympics has opened up conversation around the world, use it as a teaching experience.

5.The  Mental Games- The Mental Games are part of sports!  The determination and how to handle the pressure against showcases perseverance, goal setting and offers another opportunity to talk to your kids about accepting people who are different than them. That what makes a Olympian to be able to handle and preform under the  pressure. TJ Oshie scores in the shoot-outBBC Olymic Sports picture Oshie
