How to stay awake when you need it
Yes, like the title implies, regardless whether you are students, CEO, normal working adults like me, or even a housewife, this post is ready for you to make sure you stay awake at the right time. Laura Silva will teach you tips and tricks on how to stay awake while feeling sleepy.

Who is Laura Silva?
Before you read more, probably you need to know a little bit more about our guru today, Laura Silva.

“Laura Silva is President of Silva International and the daughter of Jose Silva, founder of the original Silva Mind Control Method. Born during the pinnacle of the Silva research on mind development, Laura was one of the primary research subjects which gave her extensive personal experience and insight into the creation and use of intuitive techniques..”

Sleep Cycle
To learn effectively from Laura Silva on how to counter your sleepiness, you will need to understand some basics on the sleeping cycle. Silva Life System in fact provides you with relevant facts on what you need to know to keeping you awake at the right time. 

Our Sleep broadly divided into 2 stages: Rapid eye movement (REM) & non-rapid eye movement NREM. 

In NREM, there are 3 phases which are characterized by alpha, theta and delta waves, as evident on electroencephalogram (EEG).

The cycle goes by changing from one phase to another: Alpha – Theta – Delta – REM, with roughly 90 minutes per phase. Thus a normal adult in a night will have 1 or more sleep cycles.

5 Steps by Laura Silva
Now, staying awake is perfectly normal for people from all walks of life. Do not worry if you think you are the only one who fell asleep during meeting. The principle of this exercise is to disrupt the sleep cycle, especially on the Alpha wave. You can do it at anytime and anywhere whenever you feel sleepy. 

1. When you are feeling sleepy at the wrong time, first you must acknowledge that you are sleepy. You can do this by telling yourself “I am drowsy and sleepy”.

2. Secondly, set a goal for yourself by convincing yourself that “I am not drowsy and sleepy”.

3. Reinforce this by counting from one to five.

4. After counting down, tell yourself “I am wide awake, feeling fine and perfectly healthy, feeling better than before.”
5. Finally, enjoy your success of staying awake.

This mind exercise works perfectly well for me. Like to know more about mind exercise, please visit their official site:
