BedJet is helpng people sleep.

Now the No. 1 customer rated cooling, heating and sleep inducing device for beds that raised $1.4 million on Kickstarter  – is returning to Kickstarter to launch their next version and generation product, the BedJet 3.

Kickstarters can pre-order the most advanced version of the award winning BedJet, completely redesigned and upgraded with new features and cutting-edge technology.  The BedJet 3 is already in beta testing and new features include:

Study: Exercise Good for Mental Health

 A new study published Wednesday in The Lancet Psychiatry journal suggests that when done in moderation, it leads to better mental health as well.
The researchers analyzed responses from 1.2 million adults in the United States taken from a US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention survey given in 2011, 2013 and 2015. The average number of days of poor mental health per person in the past month was around 3.4, according to the study.

Talking Back to School on SportsRadio 92.9 With Sam and Greg 8/5/18

Trying to get the clip, but talking Back to School, especially for the sports-minded on SportsRadio 92.9 The Game with Sam and Greg on a Sunday morning.

Here's what we discussed:

1. SmartSeat
www.physicalmindinstitute.com/smartseat

Retrain Your Sitting Muscles

“Sitting is the New Smoking” but maybe HOW we sit, with crossed legs and the pelvis tucked, is why 80% of us will experience back and hip pain. PhysicalMind Institute has a solution, SmartSeat™ is designed to retrain your body so that you can undue the damage from poor seated posture.  
SIT Smarter to Correct Your Posture!
The common crossed-leg seated position has been implicated in back, hip and knee pain because sitting this way compresses the spine and lumbar discs, inhibits abdominal muscle support, and unbalances the pelvis and may restrict circulation (spider vein alert)!

SmartSeat™ is a tool that also:   
·   Improves Standing Posture
·   Lifts & Lightens the Upper Body
·   Energizes the Breathing
·   Activates the Core Abdominals

Just 30 minutes of daily use will retrain your body so that you can sit comfortably with legs uncrossed. SmartSeat™ weighs just three ounces but supports the weight of the torso, its design lifts only the SITTING bones, not the seat.   SmartSeat™ is made of a suede-like foam and comes in a protective bag with two portable wedges so that you can take sitting well with you anywhere.
SmartSeat™ is 19” long  with a 3” pommel at the front and flares to 7” at the back of the model. Wedges are 7”x 7”.
$49- available August 15 on www.physicalmindinstitute.com/smartseat
