EPISODE #23 - If you could only focus on one health behavior and had to let all the others slide, what would it be for you? Here at the family thrive, it’s sleep without a doubt. If you’re not well rested, then you don’t have the energy, attention, or motivation to do much of anything else.
So we take sleep pretty seriously, which is why we couldn’t wait to have on this week’s guest, Kate Simon, a sleep scientist and a mom who studies how sleep affects kids of all ages. In this episode we get all the latest science and wisdom on optimal sleep not only for kids but for adults as well. If you care about the health benefits of good sleep as much as we do, then you’re going to love this episode. So, get a cozy blanket and some chamomile tea, and settle in for a conversation that will change the way you think about your family's sleep.
Kate Simon is a postdoctoral fellow at University of California, Irvine who studies sleep — specifically how it can affect people of all ages, including kids. She’s been a part of multiple sleep studies, so be sure to check those out!
