New app to end jet lag

Every day jet lag effects on average 500,000 passengers on 3,500+ long haul flights crossing multiple time zones. Jet lag symptoms include insomnia, disrupted sleep, fatigue, headaches, and digestive problems with no effective solution until today.

Uplift is safe, easy and effective providing relief with a patent pending system to reset your internal body clock in less than 10 minutes using a unique acupressure formula developed by Dr. Charles Krebs. Users input their travel information and the app calculates a specialized solution that is applied by following the app instructions and videos.

Krebs is the global expert in neuroscience and acupressure who developed this solution. With over 30 years’ experience; his vision with Uplift is “To create more joy and function in the travel experience”

After a near fatal scuba diving accident in Australia left him paralyzed from the waist down with his in-depth knowledge of anatomy, physiology and kinesiology he learned to walk again. This initiated a scientific journey of research and teaching that continues to this day.

I had to get off the plane after long intercontinental trips and be able to make complex presentations on neurology.” Says Krebs. Jet lag was impacting my performance, so I used my in-depth knowledge of neurology, physiology, and acupressure to develop this solution to resynchronize the internal body clock.

“We believe in upgrading your travel experience” notes Ted Finn co-founder and CEO of Uplift Ventures and we have tested Uplift on over 500 global travelers to confirm that it makes a meaningful difference to users.

Using Secure Storage For When You’re Away

Leaving home, whether for work, travel or study, creates a raft of logistical problems. It may be the case that you are traveling abroad for an extended period of time, or it may be simply unfeasible to keep renting your apartment for the duration of your time away. Secure storage plays an important part here, helping to alleviate the burden of carrying all your possessions with you. Further, secure storage provides the peace of mind that comes with knowing your belongings are safely stored for when you need them. But when it comes to choosing the right storage facility for your items when you are away, what factors should you be considering in order to secure the best space?


Secure StorageLocation is crucial when it comes to choosing your storage. There are a couple of factors to balance here – namely the convenience of getting to and from the storage unit, versus the relative costs of space. More central storage space tends to be more expensive, in a similar way to residential or commercial real estate. Conversely, the further out you go, the cheaper the rate you can expect to pay. This means it is up to the individual to determine whether location or price is most important when weighing up alternatives for their storage. For many, finding a happy medium between these two factors ensures a reasonable price and some degree of accessibility, which in turn makes it easier to work in and around your storage requirements.
