Sleeping on the Job – The Next Employee Benefit?

By Thomas Herold in Product Reviews on March 8th, 2007 / One Comment

Man has constantly striven to develop new techniques to allow him to achieve more in life. From the early Greek philosophers, through to creative geniuses such as Beethoven, Da Vinci, Dali and Einstein one recurring technique has been ‘napping’.

Now, ‘powernapping’ has taken corporate America and Japan by storm. Workers are actively encouraged to take breaks in their day and have a nap; they are even sent on courses to learn how to do this!

Apparently you’re never too big to take a nap. Today, napping is a health trend, a workplace perk, even an art form. Children do it, students do it, even educated Corporate Chairmen and CEO’s do it.

Now, ‘powernapping’ has taken corporate America and Japan by storm. Workers are actively encouraged to take breaks in their day and have a nap; they are even sent on courses to learn how to do this!

Apparently you’re never too big to take a nap. Today, napping is a health trend, a workplace perk, even an art form. Children do it, students do it, even educated Corporate Chairmen and CEO’s do it.

Powernapping With Pzizz
Pzizz uses a complex mathematical formula, or ‘algorithm’, based on structured random selection. This means that although the processor follows a certain path ensuring a full experience each time, the data it selects and subsequently delivers along the route is selected in a random manner making each nap different to a period of time you determine.

What Does This Mean?
Simply put, every time you press “play”, pzizz will mix a new nap for you while you listen, so that you never hear exactly the same thing twice! This has several benefits, the foremost of which is the consistent active stimulation of the subconscious through novel but recognizable input.

The algorithm draws from the three levels of data files (words, music and sound effects) stored in each program, and mixes them together each time the start button is pressed, resulting in literally billions of combinations of sounds.

This unique system enables pzizz to achieve several things that normal linear tapes and nap techniques cannot. We have the strength of association when the conscious/subconscious hears the ident (“identifying sound”) and introductory music, but instead of making a decision to switch off, we keep the subconscious active by virtue of the random nature of the program that follows.

Neuro Linguistic Programming
Pzizz combines Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), enchanting music, sound effects and a binaural beat to achieve a wonderfully relaxed state in the listener, similar to that experienced during the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) stage of sleep.

Neuro Linguistic Programming is defined as the influence of language patterns on the brain. It shows us how language patterns program our minds and form our views. NLP is a system in which the brain is viewed as a computer that can be reprogrammed to think and feel in a way that helps people achieve specific goals.

This means that with the structured language patterns within pzizz we can achieve a change in the state of the body and mind with a lasting post-experience effect.

What Are Binaural Beats?
Binaural beats are auditory brainstem responses which originate in the superior olivary nucleus of each hemisphere. They result from the interaction of two different auditory impulses, originating in opposite ears, below 1000 Hz and which differ in frequency between one and 30 Hz (Oster, 1973).

For example, if a pure tone of 400 Hz is presented to the right ear and a pure tone of 410 Hz is presented simultaneously to the left ear, an amplitude modulated standing wave of 10 Hz, the difference between the two tones, is experienced as the two wave forms mesh in and out of phase within the superior olivary nuclei.

This binaural beat is not heard in the ordinary sense of the word (the human range of hearing is from 20-20,000 Hz). It is perceived as an auditory beat and theoretically can be used to entrain specific neural rhythms through the frequency-following response (FFR) – the tendency for cortical potentials to entrain to or resonate at the frequency of an external stimulus.

Thus, it is theoretically possible to utilize a specific binaural-beat frequency as a consciousness management technique to entrain a specific cortical rhythm.
Pzizz hardware and pzizz software form part of a remarkable new system that is designed to help you achieve certain goals in life in the fastest, most effective way possible.

It is when in this relaxed state that the subconscious is most open to positive suggestion, and this is where the expertise of Michael Breen, one of the World’s foremost NLP Master Trainers, comes into play. His voice will guide you through the program of your choice, providing you with all of the benefits of a “one-on-one” private session in the comfort of your home or office and without any effort from you.

Scientific Proof & Studies
IP Clinic, Marin County, California. Researchers announced today the results of an a 25 year study on the effects of napping in industrial and post-industrial nations. The study’s outcome was clear – “for 92.5% of workers, an afternoon nap increases their productivity, and their creativity and problem solving skill.” In layman’s terms, they not only get more done, but their work is better, too.

Antonia Will, Ph.D. and head of the prestigious MW Institute for Chronobiology, reported the findings at this week’s Circadian Rhythm Kings Conference. Her study titled, Sleep cycle distortion through industrial work hours and its effect on productivity and just general crabbiness, was hailed as a landmark by the leaders of the scientific community.

    Hi Thomas, I found your site from a comment on copyblogger.com. This pzizz software certainly sounds interesting. I too have been noticing many efforts to promote napping. One of the most extreme I’ve seen are the metronaps pods, where people can pay for short “powernaps”. Anyways, great post, I’ve already bookmarked your site, I really like the theme you have. Keep up the good work!
