The Sleep Doctor™ | Dr. Michael Breus


Are you a morning grouch? Do you feel like you’ve got perpetual jet lag? Then you’ll want to catch this show! Your body has a natural schedule and this week we explore how to get you back in sync with your biological clock! I’m excited to welcome Dr. Michael Breus, aka The Sleep Doctor, on Radiantly You! to share his groundbreaking new program – based on cutting-edge research – to help us sync up with our body’s natural rhythms to achieve maximum health, happiness and productivity. Dr. Breus will share his ultimate, simple, straight-forward life hack that he’s written about in his most recent book: “THE POWER OF WHEN: Discover Your Chronotype—and the Best Time to Eat Lunch, Ask for a Raise, Have Sex, Write a Novel, Take Your Meds, and More” (Little, Brown and Company; September 6, 2016). When we stop focusing on the “how” and “what” of our lives and start focusing on the “when,” we reveal our body’s natural schedule and unlock our hidden potential. Dr. Breus proves how making small tweaks to your daily schedule—such as when to have the first cup of coffee, when to answer emails, when to nap—will nudge the rhythm of your day back in sync with the rhythm of your biology, and then, everything will start to feel easier and flow naturally.

Hear for yourself what makes Dr. Breus “the” go-to sleep expert on national media, including the The Dr. Oz Show, Oprah, The View, Anderson Cooper and CNN.

On the show we’ll talk about:

  • Does everyone really need eight hours of sleep?
  • What is your sleep type? Are you a dolphin, lion, bear or wolf?
  • Hacks for insomniacs and night owls!
  • What to do (and NOT do) when you wake up in the middle of the night.
  • The best times to connect with your family, exercise, eat and have sex.
