• Napping: A Guide to the Perfect Nap Breast Augmentation $4995!!! Specials on CoolSculpting and Cellulite

    Mused after shopping at Trader Joe’s. My current place to purchase wine (try the Trader Joe wines, especially reserve). Many food items are slightly different than Kroger, especially the preparation. Most prices are reasonable too.

    Napping

    While going to sleep on a Saturday afternoon seems simple enough, the length of the nap dictates your level of alertness, memory, and even emotional state. Thirty-four percent of adults take naps on a typical day. From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. are the common hours for napping while naps occurring later can interfere with falling asleep at night. The urge to nap is higher in teenagers through young adults. Aging has a tendency for us to be satisfied with shorter naps. (For me, watching Sunday afternoon golf is a sleeping pill.)

    Sleep is in stages which the brain cycles through roughly every 90 to 120 minutes. These stages are broadly categorized as non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Dreaming is usually associated with REM sleep.

    (Did You Know? I did sleep research in college. Some of the work was on narcolepsy or a spontaneous falling asleep. There was a pony that had narcolepsy and would fall down asleep. There are videos of narcoleptic dogs on YouTube.)

    A power nap of 10 to 20 minutes is ideal for a boost in alertness and energy, experts say. This limits you to lighter, NREM sleep. Thirty minutes may leave a groggy feeling. Sixty minutes includes some of the deeper sleep which is best for remembering facts. There may be some grogginess too. Ninety minutes is a full sleep cycle including REM. It not only is easier to wake up but leads to improved emotional and procedural memory and creativity.

    CoolSculpting is a technique to freeze unwanted fat from a variety of areas. With our “Dual Sculpting” (two machines) the time is halved and flanks or abdomen can often be done in under an hour. The most common areas are abdomen, flank/side, thighs, hips, arms, back, under buttock, bra line and under the chin. The fat cells are permanently removed. Best of all is that there is almost no downtime so you can resume your activities the same day! Call Joni who has 5 years’ experience to discuss your situation 513-793-5772.

    LA DOLCE VITA:

    Kroger now has frozen meals that are like a salad bar. You determine how much you want, scoop into a container and pay by weight. There were about 12-15 items from those with meat to sides such as mushroom risotto which I got. Just put frozen in a pan and cook until a safe temperature is reached, about 15-30 minutes. Can’t wait to try the Asian dinner!
