“Doing the right things for your body… it isn’t just good for you… it feels good. You feel better… and that’s priceless.”
— Mark Aramli

Greetings, SuperFriends!

In this episode, we sat down with Mark Aramli.

Mark is the inventor and principal engineer for the patented BedJet CCS. Mark’s first engineering role was at United Technologies, builder of the space suit for NASA. His engineering responsibilities included the space suit primary life support system (PLSS), specifically elements relating to heating, cooling and climactic comfort of the interior space suit environment for the astronauts. But he’s also worked on some other VERY interesting projects, as we learn in the episode.

My goal in the episode was to dive deeper on sleep than we have on previous episodes. Specifically, I wanted to learn about temperature, and how it effects our sleep. And, as always…Can we hack it? It’s a great episode, and I know you’re going to love it.

Favorite Quotes from Mark Aramli:

“Most people don’t get enough sleep. 60% of people actually crave sleep more than sex!”
“There are ways that temperature can profoundly impact sleep.”
“Bedroom temperature has a moderate impact on your temperature in bed. What has the most impact is your bed itself.”

“Track your sleep. See how many hours you’re getting… If you’re not getting 7-8 solid hours, you’re not getting enough… and you fall into that category of people whose days are not as good as they could be.”
“There’s a whole generation of folks growing up now who don’t know what it’s like to be unplugged.”
