What better way to kick off The Sleep Is A Skill Podcast than to celebrate WORLD SLEEP DAY!?! Today we sit down with Allan O'Bryan, the Executive Director of The World Sleep Society, to learn more about the thing that we spend a third of our lives doing!
pisode #2 is all about LIGHT! And there is a reason for that... Strengthening your circadian rhythm is central to everything that we do at Sleep Is A Skill. And it turns out that understanding and utilizing light is one of the most important ways to fulfill that goal. Thankfully Dr. Jamie Zeitzer is a leader in this area and provides some incredible and practical takeaways that you can implement immediately.
Have you ever considered what your indoor lighting is doing to your health and your sleep? In this episode, we get into the science behind light's impact on our sleep...and methods to improve our circadian rhythm through indoor lighting options. Brilli is the first company to focus on improving health, wellness, mood, energy and sleep through something we’re all surrounded with every day of our lives: LIGHT.
I am releasing this 24 hours after recording it because I believe that it is THAT urgent for people really struggling with there sleep right now in the face of Covid-19. Bring a pen and paper because this coach to the stars came prepared!!
Here at Sleep Is A Skill we advocate a clear “bookend” approach to your days to support your sleep.
Did you know that your inability to "turn off your brain" can literally HEAT up your brain? I can't think of a more illustrative example of the power that our thoughts have over our biology and our sleep results than this episode.
If you haven’t considered how glucose could be impacting your sleep, health, & moods...you might want to start. Relatedly, if you’re exploring how keto could affect your sleep & hormones, this episode is for you!
If you're a woman of childbearing years & looking to improve your sleep...this podcast is for you. Alisa Vitti is a pioneer in the area of hormonal health and wellbeing.
Cannabis & CBD can be transformative for many dealing with nighttime pain, anxiety, and insomnia.
David is an anthropology professor, research, writer, and thinker on the topic of sleep & evolution. If there were such a thing as the rockstar of evolutionary biology & sleep...he would be it.
For those of you who find emotional regulation (i.e., a brain on autopilot!) to be at the source of your sleep difficulties, this podcast is for you. Ariel Garten is the Muse’s creator, a neurofeedback tool that sits on your head like a headband and essentially acts as a “guru in your pocket, guiding your brain back to a calm state of mind when it loses focus.
Have you ever woken up in a sweat in the middle of the night? Then this is the podcast for you. Tara Youngblood and her husband first created the Chilipad cooling sleep mattress pad to solve their sleep challenges and have since created a movement in the sleep arena. Their cooling mattress pads and weighted blankets help support a robust circadian rhythm by aiding in lowering core body temperature 2 to 3 degrees each night. Today, due to lifestyle challenges, indoor cooling obstacles, insulating mattress & bedding materials, and hormonal fluctuations, consistent temperature reduction at night is no longer guaranteed in our modern society. Not to mention that Tara’s “sleep recipe” approach is something that we can fold into our sleep optimization methodology.
