Twin Cities author Kristen K. Brown made an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael last week to share her tips on getting a better night’s sleep. Brown is a specialist on stress relief and a certified holistic health counselor. She is also a best selling and award winning author who recently released her second book “The Happy Hour Effect: Twelve Secrets to Minimize Stress and Maximize Life.”
Brown was invited to join Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan on the ABC show because her advice on how to get a better night’s sleep fits into their “Kick Start the New Year” theme. Kristen, Kelly and Michael gamely donned their pajamas for the segment and in the end all three ended up in bed. Watch the segment to see all of Kristen's worthwhile tips as well as the entertaining banter between the three.
Kristen’s book, The Happy Hour Effect, was released last fall and immediately jumped to the top of the Amazon.com sales charts. Published by Goodman Beck, the book sets out to give readers strategies and solutions to help minimize stress and live a healthier, happier life. She uses anecdotes and interviews, as well as inspirational quotes and advice from outside experts, to help clarify the steps that anyone can take to de-stress their life.
Kristen’s appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael is the most recent in a long list of television and radio interviews. Pat Evans of KARE 11 had this to say about Kristen’s expertise:
"One of the great ironies of the high tech times in which we live is that for many of us, we’re often more stressed out than ever. The stuff that is supposed to make our lives easier, sometimes just doesn’t work. And that’s where Kristen Brown makes such a difference. In her thoughtful, calm and authentic way, Kristen gives our viewers effective coping strategies for today’s busy lives. She’s fun, attractive and most of all real. Drawing from her own life, which hasn’t always gone according to plan, Kristen knows what she’s talking about and that makes her stand head and shoulders above other’s who pretend to have stress solutions. She’s high touch in these high tech times. Long live the Queen Of Stress Relief and Stress Expert to the stars."
