The Benefits of Taking Naps

Recently, Swisshotel, a hotel chain, has posted some compelling evidence on why you should be taking a nap during the day. There are a slew of benefits people who take afternoon naps get such as increased productivity, attentiveness and ability to recall information, just to name a few. Our bodies are actually programmed to have two periods of deep sleep a day; one in the early morning and one in the early-mid afternoon.

Unfortunately most people in North America do not have the luxury to take that second nap during the day. That is where Swisshotel comes in to offer a few tips on how to make the most of a quick hour-hour slumber. A third of people believe they are not getting enough sleep at night. There are even successful people throughout history that are known to be midday nappers.

Out of all mammals, 85% of species are known to sleep for short periods throughout the day. The way human’s sleep, with just one long period is considered an anomaly. This specific pattern is not the way we are naturally programmed to sleep. Most people may experience some drowsiness not because of lunch but due to the fact of the tuning of your natural circadian rhythm.

There are many benefits to napping. Even with just a 10-20 minute nap, it will improve creativity and reaction time. It will even lower the chance of making mistakes and prevent burnouts. There has been a study conducted by NASA proving that naps increase performance by 34% and alertness by 100%. It will even increase happiness, memory and helps with weight control.

Some famous people who are strong advocates of napping are Winston Churchill, Salvador Dali and even John F. Kennedy.

Make sure the environment you sleep in is comfortable and lie down since it can take you 50% longer to fall asleep upright.

Dealing with the struggle of food allergies

There is an increasing amount of children with food allergies. Raising kids with a certain kind of allergy for something considered common, is very stressful. If they eat the wrong thing, it can be fatal. Parents have had to deal with their children who have had a reaction to them consuming food they are allergic to.

The norm in schools is nowadays is to be nut free as well as having EpiPens on hand in case a child does come in contact with nuts. According to latest statistics, 2 out of 25 kids have some kind of food allergy and more than 1 out of 3 has suffered a severe reaction. Imagine the daily worries of parents on how to protect their children from the threats of food allergies when it is not always obvious as peanut butter.

A parent gives her account of her daughter getting a reaction from eating chicken. Her aunt had cooked chicken and let her hungry daughter have a taste. But little did she know, the chicken was dipped in eggs which she was allergic to along with peanuts, spy, shrimp and sesame. Within seconds her daughter started getting hives and was having trouble breathing. She thought with just the use of Benadryl and her inhaler, her daughter would be fine but she was in denial about the severity of the allergic reaction her daughter was having.

On the way home, it seems as though her daughter was feeling better after she had threw up once more. But the episode was not over since her daughter came into her bedroom late at night saying she was once again having difficulty breathing. This happened since she did not give her daughter her EpiPen quickly enough. The reaction got more severe and her daughter got pneumonia. Because she did not understand the severity of the reaction, it lead to this. From that point on, she made sure her house was nut free by double checking the manufacturers of the food facilities. Unlike eggs, nuts have a bad tendency to contaminate the surrounding environment.

In addition, she made sure all of her family and friends are trained in injecting the EpiPen in case something like the episode she went through does not happen again.

She claims it is all in the way you talk to them and tell them what you expect. They are still kids after all and will have their moments of misbehaving and throwing tantrums but it is up to the parent to know what to do next.

When a child is told what is expected of them in different situations, they adopt those expectations and expect the same for themselves. Children have a natural tendency to want to please their parents therefore, they will do what their parents have taught them. Experts have come up with four rules that parents should respect in order to have well disciplined children. The first one is to set firm rules by expecting certain behavior and respecting it yourself. It is important to tell them why you expect certain actions in a simple sentence. Once they do it, praise them well and follow these rules yourself. If your child feels bad for doing something wrong, don’t try to immediate make them feel better. That guilt is important is vital to knowing the difference between right and wrong.

The second tip is to build problem-solving skills by letting kids make decisions and encourage them to try and try again. It can be easier for you to do things for them like put away toys but it is important for them to practice without the parent.

The third tip is to help kids practice patience by making them wait and tell them what they are feeling. Even getting involved in activities that help with their patience like planting is great. Lastly, it is important to practice empathy. Since the founder of ValueMags has two young children of his own, he knows the value of articles like these.

For example this month on Parents magazine, they posted an article about babies crying and colic; the things you need to know.

The average time a newborn baby cries is about an hour and a half every day. This is due to the fact that they are tired, hungry or over-stimulated. On the other hand there are babies who cry for more than three hours a day and that is harder to soothe. This has been known as colicky crying. It can start fairly early in a baby’s life and will improve by the age of 2 months. At first people thought that it had to do with the intestinal pains babies experience. But other people think it is because of the transition between being in a noisy and stimulating environment of the mother’s womb into the real world.

When they are in the womb, it is a noisy environment and we think when they are born, we believe they need to be in a quiet place. The key is to imitate the same things the baby has experienced in the womb as much as possible. There are five different techniques you can incorporate in helping soothe a baby if they are crying for extended periods of time. If you start using them and the combination you picked does not work, it is time for you to tweak your strategy.

The founder of ValueMags has two children and has known of these techniques. It has helped him and his family tremendously. If your baby cries too much, it takes a negative toll on the parents.For more information, see that ValueMags official website for insight on Parents Magazine!

American Democracy at Work

Shocking results for the majority of the world waking up on Tuesday morning. The media and every poll got it wrong. It is the first time in decades that America will be a united front meaning that the majority of Congress and all voting parties support their Commander and Chief. Are the results that shocking though?

Obama has accomplished milestones for America. The first black President received the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize, reformed health care with Obama Care, pinned down Bin Laden, negotiated a nuclear agreement with Iran, negotiated the world’s largest free trade agreement (TPP), reduced the United States deficit by one third over eight years to name a few.

An important topic that has been at the forefront of American politics for decades is job creation. Although Obama made progress from the storm Bush left him with, Americans have not felt the effects. Markets went up but their salaries did not. Neither did their profits, investments, or purchasing power for the most part. As a result, American’s appetite for change and risk grew throughout the years creating a status-quo vote on Tuesday.

So what’s next for America? Subscribe to weekly news magazines like Time and Bloomberg Business week to get detailed insights and analysis.
