Body Mind Empowerment with Siim Land

#146 Sleep Temperature and Circadian Rhythms with Tara Youngblood

Modern life disrupts our sleep not only because of artificial light and stress but also due to temperatures, food, EMF, and many other things. Most people prefer living in a constantly stable temperature but that's actually not the best thing for your sleep quality.

Welcome to the Body Mind Empowerment Podcast I’m your host Siim Land and our guest today is Tara Youngblood. Tara is a physicist and the co-founder and chief scientist at Chili Sleep Systems. She helps people get the coolest sleep ever with the use of technology and biohacking.
