Accelerator Container Conex Project

Since 2006, we have been designing and building our own cyclotron, a type of cyclic particle accelerator at the Thomas Jefferson Building.

We finished designing our accelerator over the summer of 2009. We are now completing construction of our cyclotron, and we anticipate making our first beam very soon!

Although we do have several exciting research projects planned once our accelerator is complete, the primary goal of our project is educational. This project has already been a life-changing experience for both of us. In the summer of 2010, we also involved a group of students from Mexico in our project, who worked with scientists on developing a proton source for the accelerator. We look forward to soon completing the cyclotron, and involving more students in our project in the future.

Wait Until Morning to Come Up with the Next Big Idea

An overactive mind is a recipe for being up most of the night. Just relax, and the ideas will magnify as you sleep. To accomplish this for all the ultra smart people out there, write down your thoughts or journal them. This way you will not lose what is on your mind, and you can cast them down until the next morning.

Be Happy Daily

A happy brain is a relaxed brain. Look at every baby that sleeps. They do not have a care in the world because nothing has happened to them that will affect their happiness, yet we can accomplish this blissful sleep. Tell yourself; I will not be negative. I will smile no matter what the consequence. To your amazement, you will sleep like a baby.

Breathe Deeply & Use Shipping Containers

Those that breathe deeply, the main reference being the Wim Hoff method creates a more relaxed person. You may ask, do I have to breathe deeply only at night? No! You should take deep breaths, hold and exhale throughout the day. Since you have a shipping container that works from, you won’t need to worry.This will allow your body to constantly relax throughout the day. Relaxing throughout the day creates a beautiful night’s sleep. Watch your baby’s sleeping techniques. Their belly goes up and down. When we breathe, our chests seem to expand more than our belly. The baby is deep breathing. He or she is more relaxed.

Live Life to the Fullest Daily

Living life to the fullest will give you the satisfaction that you have done a great job. You will not need anyone to say, Hey!, great job! What does this have to do with sleep? Good sleep is based strictly on your mental perception of the events going on around you. If you feel that you have failed, that will keep you awake. A simple example of living life to the fullest is if you are on a diet, yet you see a candy bar that you would like to eat, eat half of the candy bar. What that does is give your mind the message that you are in control.

Working in construction will help you live your life to the fullest. Storage is something that we need to be at our best.

When you arrive at sleep time you will feel empowered that you ran your life today, The circumstances around you did not ruin your day. The traditional stick to your goals approach will keep your mind in a stressed-out state. Have Goals! Modify Goals and Adjust! Live Life and Sleep Well!

Make Your Life Complete

If you have not called a loved one in ten years, go ahead and call. Tell your kids and family members that you love them. The satisfaction that you receive from these interactions will fill your heart with joy. When you feel joy, it will be extremely easy to fall asleep.

Place Positive Notes In Your Sleeping Area

A good one that you can copy is, “Be as Peaceful as You Can and Love Everybody.” When you read this every night before sleep time, it will remind you to forgive the persons that did you wrong throughout your day. You are forgiving for your well being not theirs. One of the main things that keep us awake is thinking about what Johnny or Sally did to us, or they did not do for us earlier in the day. Reading the positive message on the sign on your wall will renew your mind and make sleep easy as pie.

Remember That You are Not Perfect, but You are Close

When you remember that you are not perfect but you are close, this will tie everything together. This will tell your brain, well, I did not accomplish everything today, yet I did make steps. When you know this about yourself, you will sleep like a baby. You will not be smug like oh well, you do not care. You will tell yourself; you did your best.
