For years, my sleep was a problem in my life. When I went through my own challenging period of insomnia while traveling internationally, I felt like there was nowhere to turn. After obsessively learning all that I could about chronobiology and circadian rhythms — what I learned changed my life and I’m committed to sharing what I've learned (and continue to learn!).

Creator Bio:
Mollie is the creator of Sleep Is A Skill, a company that optimizes how people sleep through a unique blend of technology, accountability, and behavioral change. The company was born from “scratching her own itch” after a lifetime of poor sleep habits culminated into a mega-challenging bout of insomnia for months without end. With a background in psychology & human behavior, she went down the rabbit hole to solve her own sleep disturbances without sleeping aids. She became fascinated with chronobiology, and by extension, its practical applications to restore a state of homeostasis not only to her sleep but also to her life as a whole. Knowing the difference between a life with sleep and without, she’s now dedicated her life to sharing the forgotten skill set of sleep.

    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.

    Guest Bio: Tara Youngblood, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Chili Sleep and Author of Reprogram Your Sleep: The Sleep Recipe That Works is a highly regarded international speaker. Tara has extended her expertise to a wealth of high profile platforms including TEDx, Skookum Tech Talks, and National Sleep Foundation’s Sleep Show.

    011: Ariel Garten, co-founder of Muse: The Brain Sensing headband, teaches us how to use neurofeedback for emotional regulation and to improve sleep.

    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.


    Guest Bio:
    Garten is co-founder of InteraXon, the makers of Muse: the brain sensing headband. Muse is the award-winning wearable technology that assists and trains meditation and mindfulness. Before founding InteraXon, Ariel was not only trained as a neuroscientist and psychotherapist but also started her own international clothing line while she worked in labs researching Parkinson’s disease and hippocampal neurogenesis.

    Her creativity and entrepreneurial head combined with her fascination with the brain lead her to join forces with two like-minded friends Chris and Trevor to start InteraXon. Together they founded a Silicon Valley backed startup that allowed people to control computers with their minds, the technology that sparked the creation of Muse. Her team’s technology has been featured in over 1000 media pieces, as well as was the feature showcase at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, an installation that allowed over 7,000 people control the lights on the CN tower, Canadian parliament buildings, and Niagara Falls with their brains from across the country.

    These days, Ariel can be found at home playing with her 2-year-old or on stage across the world speaking about happiness, meditation, understanding mental health, or telling her own

    innovation story, consistently giving her audiences the tools they need to help them become their best selves.

Good podcast. However I think totally exaggerated statement that every human lies a lot everyday. Lying has a wide wide spectrum. And to just blanket comment on such a loaded theme I found irresponsible and inappropriate.
