012: Tara Youngblood, Chilipad CEO & Co-Founder. Author of Reprogram Your Sleep: The Sleep Recipe That Works
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.
