This episode is all about sleep. I’m here with my good friend, Mollie McGlocklin, who is the creator of Sleep is a Skill and the host of the Sleep is a Skill Podcast. Her company is one that helps people optimize sleep through a unique blend of technology, accountability, and behavioral change and this started for her after navigating really intense insomnia while traveling. Since then, she has created what she couldn’t find, which is a place to learn the skill set of sleep and to have lifelong better sleep and we get into that today.
We talk about chronobiology, circadian rhythm, practical strategies. She talks about levers you can pull with light, temperature, food, etc. to improve your sleep, what infaradian rhythm is, how this applies to women, the most important things you can do during the day to improve your sleep and much, much more. Mollie is a wealth of knowledge and I cannot wait to share her with you.
