How to Become an Early Riser

How to Become an Early Riser
It is well to be up before daybreak, for such habits contribute to health, wealth, and wisdom. - Aristotle Are morning people born or made? In my case it was definitely made. In my early 20s, I rarely went to bed before midnight, and I’d almost always sleep in late. But after a while I couldn’t ignore the high correlation between success and rising early, even in my own life. … and the next morning, I got up just before noon. Hmmm… I tried again many more times, each time not getting very far with it. It’s hard to become an early riser using the wrong strategy. The most common wrong strategy is this: You assume that if you’re going to get up earlier, you’d better go to bed earlier. It seems there are two main schools of thought about sleep patterns. The second school says you should listen to your body’s needs and go to bed when you’re tired and get up when you naturally wake up. Through trial and error, I found out for myself that both of these schools are suboptimal sleep patterns. Related:  Dreams & Meditation

7 Ways to Overhaul Your Brain! While most exercise is focused on strengthening and improving your physical body and muscles, there is very little focus on keeping your brain sharp and healthy. This is interesting because the brain is obviously the most important organ in your body, not only controlling the muscles people spend hours working to build up, but also your memory, thought process, attitude, etc. Don’t get me wrong, abs are great, but the brain needs to be supplemented too. It is far more important to your overall well-being. Here are the best exercises/activities that you can do to keep your brain in tip-top condition: 1. The majority of people are stuck in ruts. 2. Eat: - Sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, mainly fatty fish and grass-fed animals. - Enough food everyday! Do Not Eat: - Too much cholesterol, high amounts are linked to brain diseases like Alzheimers. - Too much fat, sugar, etc. 3. R.E.M. sleep is critical for the for being able to retain information and maintaining learning ability. 4. 5. 6. 1. 2.

The Art of Meditation / Stop Being a Zombie! A person who thinks all the time has nothing to think about except thoughts. So he loses touch with reality, and lives in a world of illusion – Alan Watts Tweet This Have you ever driven your car or bicycle and suddenly you wake up somewhere down the road and can’t remember how you got there? What happened in those few minutes? And so did I when I first started meditating. So before I continue I’d like everyone to experience this to understand what I’m talking about. Did you do the two minutes? There’s a lot been written on meditation, and to be honest, I ain’t got anything new or groundbreaking stuff to tell. What is Meditation? Meditation is the act of training the mind. Why Meditate? The Buddha said: don’t blindly believe what others say, see for yourself what brings serenity, clarity of thought and inner peace. I myself find it really hard to explain what meditation has done to me. How to Meditate? Shamatha is the meditation of one pointed concentration. Picture by eldave

6 Tips and Tricks for Polyphasic Sleep Jordan has written some excellent articles on polyphasic sleep. So good in fact that I couldn’t resist trying it out for myself. I always tried to understand my own psyche, whether through meditation, putting myself in situations that are challenging or confronting my own strong held beliefs. Next stop was, going poly! It took me three tries before I succesfully went polyphasic. I’m two weeks in my third try and I’m feeling great. 1) Start SLOWLY! Don’t go from monophasic to polyphasic in one go. 2) Don’t cut down on caffeine IMMEDIATELY! Morning coffee is one of those modern sacred rituals of the human race. 3) Don’t wake up at the WRONG moment! Sometimes you wake up and you feel really alert and fit, and sometimes you need five alarm clocks, an earthquake and something really important to do just to open your eyes. 4) Its all about ENDURANCE! With everything in life there are ups and downs but we all know a winner never quits and a quitter never wins. 5) Going LUCID!

fuck yeah cartography! Alternative Sleep Cycles: You Don’t Really Need 6-8 Hours! Most people only think that there is one way to sleep: Go to sleep at night for 6-8 hours, wake up in the morning, stay awake for 16-18 hours and then repeat. Actually, that is called a monophasic sleep cycle, which is only 1 of 5 major sleep cycles that have been used successfully throughout history. The other 4 are considered polyphasic sleep cycles due to the multiple number of naps they require each day. How is this possible? How is this healthy? Well the most important of every sleep cycle is the Stage 4 REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep, which has been shown to provide the benefits of sleep to the brain above all other stages of sleep. This way, you still get the benefits of 8 hours of sleep without wasting all of the time it takes to get to REM cycles, resulting in a much more efficient sleep cycle. Uberman Cycle: 20 to 30 minute naps every 4 hours, resulting in 6 naps each day. Everyman Cycle: One longer “core” nap that is supplemented with several 20-30 minute naps. Dymaxion Cycle:

Bestiaria: relatos e imágenes de mujeres | Weblog de Carolina Aguirre La desarmada es una soltera que pasó los treinta y todavía ostenta ese exotismo haragán típico de quienes se autoproclaman la oveja negra de la familia como si se colgaran una medalla en el pecho. Sensual y atractiva, un poco hippie, pseudointelectual perezosa, irresponsable por desidia, a veces garronera y artesana amateur, la desarmada no encuentra rumbo en su vida. Conserva la esperanza intacta de convertirse en cantante, actriz o artista plástica, aunque no sabe bien qué quiere. Según sus propias palabras, si todavía no pudo concretar ningún proyecto personal, es porque no tuvo suerte, porque los medios están muy podridos, o porque su profesora de escultura es menos talentosa que ella y no la deja crecer. Con meticulosidad infalible, la desarmada no termina nada de lo que empieza. Después de eso, se conformó con tener un profesor de canto y hacer algunos talleres municipales. Si bien vive sola y se proclama un alma libre, la desarmada no tiene autonomía real.

Rêve lucide Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Un rêve lucide est un rêve durant lequel le rêveur a conscience d'être en train de rêver. L’utilisation de l’adjectif « lucide » en tant que synonyme de « conscient » a été introduite en 1867 par l'écrivain, sinologue et onirologue français Léon d'Hervey de Saint-Denys dans son ouvrage Les Rêves et les moyens de les diriger. La plupart des rêves lucides ont lieu durant la phase de sommeil paradoxal. Ils peuvent survenir fortuitement ou résulter d'un apprentissage. Se savoir en train de rêver offre au rêveur la possibilité d'exercer un contrôle délibéré non seulement sur ses actions mais sur le contenu du rêve et sur son déroulement. La faculté de reconnaître l'état de rêve durant son sommeil est mentionnée dans les textes bouddhistes au VIIIe siècle après J.

L'histoire de l'interprétation des rêves remonte aux premiers temps de la civilisation. Dans l'Antiquité, le Grec Artémidore de Daldis rédigea ainsi un traité en cinq volumes sur le sujet, quelque dix-sept siècles avant Freud. Mais une nouvelle page du déchiffrement onirique a été tournée cette année, chez moi. Malheureusement, ces conversations sont à sens unique. Internet m'a d'abord laissé sur ma faim. publicité D'autant que, comme il m'arrive souvent, je me suis vite détourné de mon objectif initial pour en poursuivre un bien plus retors et ambitieux: rêver en état de lucidité, à savoir, faire surgir la conscience dans mes rêves de manière à en «diriger» le scénario. Ces témoignages sont issus de l'ouvrage de Stephen LaBerge et Howard Rheingold, paru en 1990, Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming, que j'ai déniché au rayon «bien-être» de ma librairie. L'incroyable de la chose m'a frappé, j'en conviens. Étape numéro 1: tenir un journal de bord onirique. Et figurez-vous que ça marche!
