230: What is your brain doing?
What if you could fall asleep the minute you laid your head down each night?
What if you could sleep through the night with ZERO interruptions?
Well, it may seem like a dream come true – but thanks to my guest it’s actually easier than ever before.
I welcomed back Ariel Garten, neuroscientist, inventor, and artist turned entrepreneur. As the co-founder of Muse® – the brain-sensing meditation headband – Ariel has helped people all across the globe reduce their stress levels, sleep better, and improve their overall health.
And on this episode, she helps you do the same. Ariel and I reveal what REALLY goes on when you lay your head down at night, and how the latest device from Muse could help you get the best sleep of your life.
