IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...
…you’re listening to a new Upgrade Spotlight series based on what you told me you wanted to hear on this podcast. On one Friday each month, these shorter episodes will feature guests who’ll get right into useful information in a Q&A style.
You’ll find out how to improve your energy and upgrade your performance. You’ll also get the latest knowledge about powerful tools and technologies that allow you to change your biology and the environment around you.
Introducing ChiliSleep! During this Upgrade Spotlight, you’re going to learn about the physical and mental health benefits of cool sleep and how to hack your sleep with new bed technology.
You already know about the physical and psychological effects of not getting good sleep. Whether you’re dangerously sleep-deprived or can’t stop waking up in the middle of the night, struggling to get enough sleep over time can have devastating impacts on your body and mind.
Poor sleep increases a person’s risk of developing serious medical conditions, and not getting enough deep sleep increases the chance of high blood pressure; heart attack and stroke; Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease; and Type 2 Diabetes.
Tara Youngblood founded ChiliSleep so people could get the coolest sleep ever. Water-based cooling helps your body settle into a just-right temperature that’s just right for you.
Your core body temperature should naturally drop every night, but for lots of people for lots of reasons it doesn't. Here are a few of the good things that happen when you regulate your sleep temperature:
- Cooler temperatures cue your brain to release melatonin and help you fall asleep faster.
- Sleeping at colder temperatures improves deep sleep and increases muscle recovery.
- Muscle repair and growth occur during deep sleep and REM sleep stages due to the natural release of growth hormones.
Tara creates technologies and apps to help you recover your sleep and your energy. She’s a trained scientist with degrees in Science and Physics who also studied traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic practices, neuroscience, and psychology.
She focuses on how your physical body can get better sleep and the important essential link between sleep and mental health.
