With Dr Kathy Gruver

Learn how to stop the stress response in its tracks.

It's estimated that stress is responsible for 60-90% of doctor's visits and one million workers miss work each day because of stress, costing companies $602 per employee per year, according to the American Institute of Stress.

It is imperative that we recognise that stress is not the problem - it's our reaction to our stress and we can learn to control it. Acquire cutting edge self-care techniques - affirmations, visualisation, breathwork, mindfulness and mini-mediations - that you and your staff can do for better health. Master a mini-meditation that anyone can do anytime. Learn how we can use visualisation to improve our leadership and work performance outcomes. Additionally you'll explore how our words and thoughts can make a difference in our daily lives. Also covered will be how we can incorporate all of our senses in daily mindfulness to decrease the stress response and gain control over our reactions, brining us to greater peace and productivity. Attendees will walk away with an increased sense of control over stress, and practical tools that can be immediately put to use in their everyday lives.
