    56. How Temperature Can Affect Our Sleep with Jason Elliott

    56. How Temperature Can Affect Our Sleep with Jason Elliott

    We all know the importance of getting a good night’s sleep, but how can we make that a reality? For engineer Jason Elliott, lack of quality sleep was affecting his mood, work performance and overall health. He soon learned that temperature was playing a major role in his sleep quality, and went on to start his company Perfectly Snug, developing a mattress topper that adjusts to the body's temperature.

    In our conversation, Jason shares his personal wellness journey, along with the road to becoming an entrepreneur. We also talk about the role temperature plays in our sleep cycles, how to ensure a better quality night’s sleep, tips for adjusting our sleep while traveling in other time zones and much more.
