Care for an afternoon nap? The idea of taking a nap in the middle of the day or in between your daily tasks has for years been shunned upon as a sign of laziness or laxity. But courtesy of scientific research on sleep patterns, it appears a quick nap is not so bad after all – you could even improve your productivity and overall health.


10-20 Mins – The Power Nap
According to a study appearing in SLEEP, an afternoon nap of between 10 and 20 minutes yields Stage 2 sleep. [1] This is associated with increased cognitive performance, sharpened motor skills, mood elevation, enhance concentration, alertness, and stamina. The high level of energy from the ‘power nap’ lasts for a little over 2½ hours.

30 Minutes – The Groggy Nap
The Sleep Foundation notes that naps lasting 30 minutes can leave you with sleep inertia. [2] This is characterized by a feeling of disorientation or grogginess that can be detrimental to your productivity and moods. Your brain is forced to wake up as it enters the deeper stages of sleep.



60 Minutes – Short-Term Nap
At 60 minutes of napping, your mind has already entered the deepest stage and your brain waves have slowed down considerably. Waking up at this stage allows you to recall facts, names, and faces in better detail. On the downside, you may experience slight grogginess since your body had not completed a sleep cycle.

90 Minutes – The REM Nap
After 90 minutes you’ll have completed a full sleeping cycle (light and deep stages). This improves creativity, procedural memory, and emotional memory. PS: This is the easiest nap to wake up from.

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
