Yohimbe Bark to Fight Sleep!

As a freelance artist I work a LOT to support my family. Therefore I don't sleep, like, ever. I've gone through different trends of energy drinks, coffee, etc. Kicker's 80-Hour Energy Spray
worked pretty great, but is almost impossible to find outside midewestern truck stops. But then my wife brought home Yohimbe Bark
. It's often said to be for "male enhancement" but it's also used by runners and bodybuilders because it supports muscle endurance. She got it for herself and told me to give it a try to see what it does for me. VOƮLA! Despite having basically no sleep the night before, I felt fantastic! I'd been only drinking coffee (can't always afford $4 energy drinks) and by 9pm I was passing out on my feet (not kidding). But with Yohimbe, I'm not jittery, don't feel sick or weird in any way. I'm just awake!

<-- ORDER the same kind we got here!

They do say to be careful because it can cause some bad side effects like insomnia, but I'd actually welcome that at this point. So, be careful, but I suggest giving it a try. It's worked wonders for me! I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and it's the same effect every day. I feel awake and energized despite having 1 to maybe 4 at the most hours of sleep.

Let me know if it works for you, too! I think it will! ~Ray

My Vision Board!

Inspired by "The Secret" which gets a tad kooky but has great points! The idea is to just accept the things you want in your future as being a reality and never doubt that it will happen and you'll have the power to make it happen.

I've always envisioned what my life could become and it's all coming true (beautiful wife and kids, East Coast, nice big house with fireplaces, art career, etc), so I'm continuing in that fashion. I've set my sites on the following and will never doubt that I will make it happen! (I'd love to see yours, too!)

For full desciptions, go to My Facebook Vision Board Album where I describe the idea behind each one. It's not just about money and cool stuff.



















The Caffeine Power Nap!

This is a real method I use all the time for the countless allnighters I have to pull for my overloaded work schedule and to take care of our baby who also never sleeps. Might not work for everyone, but it works for me. Obviously sleep is important for health and I'm not encouraging anyone to deprive themselves or anything like that (don't sue me if we all find out not sleeping kills you, it was your choice to try it), but being overloaded is a reality in everyone's lives and if you just can't help but miss sleep, you might give this a shot. I feel much better after!
"The Caffeine Nap is simple: you drink a cup of coffee and immediately take a 15-20 minute nap. Researchers found coffee helps clear your system of adenosine, a chemical which makes you sleepy. The combination of a cup of coffee with an immediate nap chaser provided the most alertness for the longest period of time in tests. The recommendation was to nap only 15 minutes, no more or less and you must sleep immediately after the coffee." - via http://www.sleepdex.org/caffeine-nap.htm

I'd like to add that for best results, stay hydrated. REALLY hydrated (which also helps keep you awake) and JUMP out of that bed/chair/floor/computer keyboard. If you jump up and get moving, get that blood going, your body and mind will feel much better much faster.

Let me know if it works for you! Good luck with your deadlines!! If we keep at it, we'll reach success and get away from the sleepless nights!

Zombie Ray Play Kickball!!

Here in Portland Maine, they have an annual Zombie Kickball game where everyone dresses up like Zombies and... play Kickball!! Just a reason to dress up, be silly, and get in the Halloween spirit! This was my first time and it was so much fun!

Makeup by my wife Renae De Liz - she's incredible at anything she tries! Both me and my son were done in an hour and it was her first time ever trying!
Our son, Tycen (7) even got into the action:
Our baby boy, Drake, was just a light snack between innings. :o)





See my photo stream of the day here: http://plixi.com/raydillon Click the arrow to the left to continue in order. Some really flattering pics of me in there. :o)
