Presentation Description:  Are you finding it harder to keep up with the increasing challenges of being an educator? Or life in general? Feeling more stress and not quite sure how to keep or get things back into balance? In truth, most of us--and our students--are these days. And while there are no simplistic answers, this workshop will certainly help bring your life and career back into more healthful and enjoyable balance. As an added bonus, there are many practical things that you can pass along to your family and students as well.


The good news is this: small changes, specifically applied, have been shown to produce positive results in stress reduction, health improvement, and enhanced overall well-being. From a synthesis of research in fields such as stress management, human resiliency, wellness, martial arts, exercise physiology, psychoneuroimmunology, the brain sciences, neuro-feedback, cardio-feedback, positive psychology, peak performance science, and more, come key principles and useful techniques that will certainly help in bringing about a calmer, more energized, and balanced approach to living and learning.


Offered to educators, counselors, and care-providers in over two dozen countries, the workshop addresses theory, recent research and--most importantly--practical and effective tools with which to make it applicable. You'll benefit in both your personal life and in the professional setting, learn many techniques for immediate use, and have a truly memorable time in the process.
