How It Works
In a Nutshell
Just listen to the Power Nap recording through headphones or ear buds and after 20 minutes, you'll feel as though you've had a long nap.
Welcome to the scientifically-sound deep sleep of Power Nap.
Sleep research shows that the natural sleep rhythm is three hours. Wake up after 180 uninterrupted minutes of rest, and you can function effectively.
But who has three hours for a nap every day? The rich, retired and unemployed! You can only achieve the first two by avoiding the third. Getting caught asleep on the job or routinely being unable to perform at your best are good ways to get fired.
In just one-third of your lunch hour, Power Nap can help you be alert and effective for far more of your waking hours.
Monitoring EEG Activity Demonstrates Power Nap's Effectiveness.
Monitoring of EEG activity of subjects using Power Nap showed a reduction in Theta wave activity, a smoothing of Delta wave activity, a balancing of activity in both hemispheres and some increase in Alpha Wave activity. Delta activity was decreased and the waves were smoother with spiking moderated as Theta activity decreased.
In other words, Power Nap provides a structure that enables the user to refocus his or her energies and tune out the environment and their own "brain noise" and be guided into a deeply relaxed state.
If you use Power Nap according to the instructions, you can't help but feel better afterwards!
How does it work?
When you sleep under normal circumstances, your brain cycles through several different stages of Delta, Theta, Alpha, and Beta sleep waves. You drift from one stage of sleep to another—from deep sleep to dreaming to wakefulness and so on. These waves are inaudible to the human ear.
Through advanced mastering technology, Power Nap piggybacks the sleep waves on audible “carrier waves” within the audible range. The result: you get the effect of the natural waves so you can sleep!
Listen to the Power Nap recording through headphones. Your brain has no sensory input other than the carrier waves playing through your ears. When you hear more than 60 seconds of a certain frequency, your brain modulates to match it. Listening to the Power Nap recording through stereo headphones for 20 minutes guides your brain through a pattern of deep sleep that would otherwise require three hours!
What happens when you listen to the Power Nap "Colors" recording?
If colors had voices, what sounds would they make? What sound does red make? What about blue?
POWER NAP Colors represents a completely new and different POWER NAP experience from any previously released Power Nap program. New technology developed in our lab enables us to replace the atonal but effective “white noise” carrier wave we've been using successfully for years in our other products with pleasing musical sounds and original music.
As you listen to the beautiful Power Nap music during the first 5 minutes or so, your brain "finds" and adjusts to the special Power Nap waves coming through the headphones. For the next 15 minutes, Power Nap Colors cycles your brain between deep and REM sleep periods, finally bringing your mind to a state of heightened wakefulness at the end of the recording. Then the specially encoded music gradually fades away. You awaken spontaneously, feeling refreshed—as though you’ve had a long nap.
What happens when you listen to the white-noise recordings?
You will hear pleasing waterfall-like sounds throughout the duration of your Power Nap. During the first 5 minutes or so, your brain adjusts to the sounds coming through the headphones. For the next 10 minutes, the Power Nap recording cycles your brain between deep and REM sleep periods, finally bringing your mind to a state of heightened wakefulness at the end of the recording. Then the waterfall-like sounds stop. You awaken spontaneously, feeling refreshed—as though you’ve had a long nap.
What do the waterfall sounds do?
The waterfall sounds actually don't do anything. The waterfall sounds are there so you don't have to listen to 20 minutes of "nothing" while you are Power Napping. The wavelengths that actually make Power Nap work are well below the range of human hearing, generally between 1 and 12Hz. While you are listening actively to the recording, you will begin to think you’re hearing all kinds of sounds within the white noise. This is normal. These “artifacts” are a sign that your brain has synchronized with the recording and that Power Nap is working.
