EPISODE 1 – sleep + meditation with Michael Acton
Welcome back to a new season of The Food Medic Podcast! We are kicking off the season with a very special guest – co-founder of the sleep and meditation app CALM, Michael Acton. Prior to Calm, Michael was the founder of Mind Candy and creator of Moshi Monsters, the online world for children that grew to 80 Million registered users and expanded offline into books, toys, games, magazines, music and movies. Michael is also the founder of Firebox.com, Ping Pong Fight Club and Berwickstock music festival. In 2014 he was awarded an OBE for services to the Creative Industries.
Hazel and Michael chat about how to mediate, the use of technology in meditation and mindfulness, the impact of disrupted sleep on our health and tips on how to improve your bedtime routine.
As this is a new season, Dr Hazel will be ending the episode with a listener question. You can tweet, facebook or instagram message us with your questions with the hashtag #thefoodmedicpodcast.
