Dr. Russell Kennedy – Reduce Stress, How to Get the Most from Your Brain & Optimizing Your Default Mode Network

Dr Russell Kennedy is a medical doctor and anxiety expert, certified yoga teacher, neuroscientist, a corporate speaker with National Speakers Bureau and has toured with the Yuk Yuks comedy chain as a stand-up comedian (no joke). He’s researched the brain for over thirty years, from academic institutions in North America to living and studying at a temple in India. He’s taken medications from Ayuhausca to Zoloft in an effort to understand and treat his own anxious mind and understand mental illness from both the inside out and the outside in. He is also a Dog lover, a semi-pro worrier, quite mechanically disinclined, and loves short cuts. He has infinite patience for people but gets ragey and starts throwing stuff if anything from IKEA isn’t coming together the way it looks on the box.
