#61: Greg Potter PhD – Easy to implement tips for better sleep
Yes it was! But turns out your sleep tracker might just be an additional reason you have poor sleep. Today’s guest on the podcast Greg Potter has a Ph.D. in Sleep, Diet, and Metabolic health and is the second guest to point to the potential damages of sleep trackers (Dr. Michael Tompkins was the first)
Greg’s research has been featured by the likes of the BBC World Service, the Washington Post, and Reuters. He has coached a sprinter to four gold medals at the European Championships. He has also worked with groups such as The United States Naval Special Warfare Command on health and performance optimization. He is now Chief Scientific Officer for the digital health startup Resilient Nutrition.
