Grab a pillow and turn off your smartphone (unless you're using it to listen to this podcast obviously), because in this episode you will learn how to use or avoid the right technology to get a better night's sleep.

Our guests this week are Dr. Richard Shane, who has more than 25 years of experience treating insomnia and sleep difficulties. He has conducted research with police departments, fire departments, commercial airline pilots and the general public to address serious safety and health issues associated with sleep difficulties. In addition to this, he is the developer of the Sleep Easy method which, through clinically-proven treatment, demonstrated an 81.6% efficacy rate.

There are some great predictions in there, with a real mixture of funny, dark and optimistic predictions, so take a listen.
