The Ultimate Beauty Sleep with Dr. Janet Kennedy

Meet Dr. Janet Kennedy

Today on the show we have sleep doctor, psychologist, and author dr. Janet Kennedy here to share her wealth of knowledge on sleep.  We’ll be covering everything from how sleep changes our brain to how much you should be getting and ways to wind down.

After years of being the unofficial sleep consultant to friends, colleagues and family with a variety of child and adult sleep issues, Dr. Kennedy decided to make the leap and create NYC Sleep Doctor in 2008. She strongly believes that correcting sleep problems—for children and for adults—is critical to the physical and psychological health of the whole family.  Dr. Kennedy is dedicated to helping people substantially improve their daily lives and long-term functioning through better sleep. Using her experience as a scientist and as a practicing psychologist, along with my hands-on experience as a working mother of two, she finds solutions that work for each individual and family from her offices in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Her first book, The Good Sleeper: The Essential Guide to Sleep for your Baby (and You), was published by Henry Holt in January 2015. The Good Sleeper is available online, at your local bookstore, and here.
