Corporate wellness is not a new concept, and yet it may bring up different perspectives regarding what should be included within a business. With the stressors in our modern world, corporate programs around wellness are in high demand. Since there is no set way to do this, many feel at a loss as to where they should begin, or what the next steps should be.
Wellness goes beyond financial, nutritional and exercise, which are included in many of the current programs. Research shows that stress pervades people’s lives, affecting productivity, creativity, and relationships at work, as well as at home. Without ways to deal with this key factor, individuals suffer, but so does the work environment and culture.
Our programs address many facets that are often overlooked. Whenever we help the individual, we help the corporation. We deal with the mind, body, and connections to self and others. We give tools that can help in real time, starting now.

Stress: The Silent Killer
Over 90% of all illness is caused by stress. This seminar will focus on what stress is, types of stress, and the typical, as well as hidden signs of stress.

This is the first of a two, or three, part series that has been a huge success for so many corporations.
Stress: What Can I Do About It?
We all feel the effects stress has on our bodies, yet in this fast paced world, increasing stress has become a way of life.

By learning where we hold stress and other subtle and not so subtle signs, we can begin to address it and live a healthier lifestyle. Strategies to combat stress (beginning right now) will be taught, along with how to re-wire the brain for real change moving forward. You will also learn how men and women are affected differently by stress.
SAD, Depression, and Anxiety: Real Issues. Real Answers
SAD, depression, and anxiety can be temporary or ongoing experiences. In these states, we close in, and what is experienced becomes the new “normal” even though it isn’t. In this space, it becomes more challenging to understand that help is necessary, much less to seek it. Unfortunately, perceived stigmas surrounding these issues also may keep people from seeking the help they need. You will also learn how to determine if you, or someone close to you needs help. As one participant stated to the president of his company, “This series is the best thing you’ve ever done for us!” This three part series is life changing, and just may save someone’s life- in more ways than one.
*At each of these seminars, tools for stress reduction will be shown, and where time permits, may be tried out.
