From an evolutionary perspective, we’re working against ourselves when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep.
We’ve been disrupting our circadian rhythm by striving towards achieving homeostasis with air conditioning, heating, and artificial lighting. The natural sleep triggers such as the gradual darkening and cooling of our environment are gone, and we’re not sleeping as well as we should.
To get the best night’s sleep our bodies need a cool environment. But with memory foam mattresses and heavy blankets, heat is trapped in our beds regardless of the room’s temperature.
Tara Youngblood, a fusion scientist and a visionary leader in the future of sleep-driven health, and her husband have created the ChiliPad™, a mattress cover that actively cools your bed. The pad has tubing that acts like a radiator, keep your body at the right temperature all night long.
Listen as Tara joins Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss the science of a good night’s sleep.
