Chronotypes, Circadian Rhythm, & Oura – Petteri Lahtela

Power Quotes From The Show
“Our chronotype and circadian rhythm go hand-in-hand. It's all about sleep, daytime alertness, memory, learning, and especially hormone balance. The more you appreciate the importance of sleep, the better you can perform.” – Petteri Lahtela
“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
