Chronotypes, Circadian Rhythm, & Oura – Petteri Lahtela
“The body is unique and so its response to different lifestyles depends on the individual. There's no guide that lets us know which path to take or what will happen when we make a decision. The Oura ring helps us reflect and become more self-aware.” – Petteri Lahtela
Even the smallest choices you make when it comes to nutrition and fitness can affect your sleep and recovery for days to come.
In Wellness Force Radio 160, CEO and Co-Founder of ŌURA, Petteri Lahtela, shares why wearable technology like the Oura ring can help you learn what your body needs to recover and unleash its full potential every day. As you listen, you will also learn why your unique chronotype and circadian rhythm alignment helps you experience your best night's sleep, become more alert, balance hormones, and make your memory stronger.
Get ready to take your wellness to the next level with technology that understands your lifestyle and what's important to you.

Power Quotes From The Show
“The Generation 2 Oura ring is now by far the most advanced variable in the world as far as the amount of meaningful insights it can provide to the user. It will help the user reflect on their health and become more self-aware of what choices are good for them.” – Petteri Lahtela
“The Oura ring has helped people to understand that sometimes less is more. Athletes know that they really need to focus on resting. Therefore, the winner of a competition won't necessarily be the one who works the hardest or spends the most time training. The one who recovers faster and is the best at it is the winner.” – Petteri Lahtela
“The Oura ring and app gives you a daily activity target based on how you recovered while sleeping the night before. It doesn't push you to walk 10,000 steps every day. Instead, it gives you a target based on how your body is responding to the previous day's physical and mental strain.” – Petteri Lahtela
“This technology is especially beneficial for people who live busy lives. It's a relief to understand your own body in the context of your schedule. It allows you to know your body's individual capacity and what it needs to properly recover from a lot of work or stress.” – Petteri Lahtela
