    TCSP 67 -- Cell Phones and Sleep Performance with Tara Clancy, High Performance Sleep Strategist

    TCSP 67 -- Cell Phones and Sleep Performance with Tara Clancy, High Performance Sleep Strategist

    Cell Phones and Sleep Performance |
    It's time to talk about cell phones and other screens!

    Listen and get answers these two questions:
    1) what does it mean for you, specifically how many ways do cell phones reduce your level of sleep performance and
    2) what you can you do to level up your sleep performance

    Let’s start with this staggering cell phone statistic: In 2014 Americans checked their phones an average of 33 times per day. By 2022, that number was up to 344!

    So in just eight years, we went from checking our phones 33 times per day to 344 times per day. It took us less than a decade to 10x how often we get sucked in by our phones.

    So you probably won’t be surprised to hear this statistic: 47% of Americans self-report they're addicted to their cell phones.

    So what does this mean for you, and what can you do?

    Listen, learn the 'Do Not Disturb' strategy, and start using it tonight!

    Give it one week, and if you’re still having sleep performance challenges, it’s time to take the Sleep Performance Assessment.
    When you create a “do not disturb” relationship with your phone, you get the sleep performance you need for the daytime performance you want. Use it tonight!

    TCSP 63 -- Terminate Toxic Culture with Phil Gerbyshak

    TCSP 63 -- Terminate Toxic Culture with Phil Gerbyshak

    Terminate Toxic Culture with Phil Gerbyshak |

    We need new insights as The Great Resignation drags on!
    We’re hearing daily how businesses continue to struggle with hiring and retaining employees. In fact, over the last 18 months, employers have experienced attrition rates in the high teens. 
    Just how bad is that rate? Well, we can compare it to the tech industry which is known for its high turnover rate—higher than in any other business sector. The tech industry’s historic turnover rate has been just over 13%. So the attrition rates in the high teens that we’ve been seeing for the last year and a half exceed the turnover rate of the industry that has had the highest rate!
    And what we like to do here on The Counterfeit Sleep Podcast® is to get at the WHY that’s driving the problem. So the obvious question is Why is the turnover rate so high? 
    And that’s where it gets really interesting to me. There’s a range of ideas on “why” we’re seeing such high levels of attrition.

    Some say it’s about wanting more money. 

    Some say it’s about wanting greater flexibility.

    And more recently, a new “why” emerged: “toxic culture.”


    In January of 2022, Donald Sull, an MIT researcher and co-founder of CultureX, and his colleagues published an article called Toxic Culture Is Driving the Great Resignation. 
    I recommend that everyone read it, and you can find the link to the article in the show notes. But the skinny is this: Sull and his colleagues identified the Top Predictors of Attrition During the Great Resignation…and toxic culture topped the list. By far.
    So if we know an epidemic of toxic culture is a major “why” behind the great resignation, that’s good news, right? Once we’ve identified the why of a problem, we’re in a position to work toward a solution.
    So what now? Certainly, addressing the epidemic of Counterfeit Sleep® is a key element of the solution, and you hold a key piece of the solution, as well, Phil. And that’s why I’ve been so eager for our conversation today. 
    You work with businesses to leverage modern selling practices, including social and virtual selling, to increase their profitability, their productivity, and their performance. And you have some keen insights about toxic culture. 
    So let's get into what you’re seeing and hearing, your insights, and some key strategies to help businesses terminate toxic culture and build the positive culture that keeps employees through thick and thin!

    Listen and learn:

    The real reasons employees are leaving

    Why you want to avoid “Mushroom Management” like the plague

    How to grow positive culture with the powerful MUST strategy

Solutions to living a stronger life

This is a must follow and listen.
Tara Clancy podcast provides information into a realm that isn't talked about enough in today's healthcare, the airway.

It's incredible to hear how airway complications, and many that people don't realize they have and/or are effecting their daily lives, are more common than not. The tired, drudging day-to-day feeling that some to most individual's feel isn't a normal, and the fix could be something that Doctor's truly aren't looking at because they don't see the true point of where it's coming from.

Tara presents her podcast in an exciting and inticing way that brings an energy that really invites you in and spikes your interest. It was extremely interesting to hear interviews with professionals like Dr. Martha Cortes who explained that airway complications and their effect on the body begin from the mouth and can be remedied with an oral appliance. It's almost as if dentistry has been approached in a wrong manner all this time, why isn't more awareness of these subject in today's healthcare world?

I really recommend listening and following this podcast series!
