Did you know? - 4 in 5 workers report job stress, and nearly half say they need help to manage it. - More than 30% of workers experienced stress severe enough to affect their health. - Work-related stress costs U.S. businesses $30 billion a year in lost workdays. Employers and workers alike want to solve the problem of stress in the workplace, and expensive solutions abound. But did you also know that fewer than 10% of workers take advantage of corporate wellness programs? Tessa Todd Morgan offers simple tools that can help anyone to manage daily stress in minutes, providing anyone in attendance with the ability to re-energize and re-center themselves with a DAILY RESET BREAK. This allows them to reboot their bodies, minds and spirits to be more productive and, most importantly, be well. In this interactive presentation focused on the practice of a few simple mindfulness techniques, attendees will learn to: • Fight fatigue and enhance focus at work and at home • Reduce stress, increase creativity, and be more productive • Recognize and manage “trigger moments” using emotional intelligence techniques • Minimize afternoon crashes and cravings • Ignore the distractions that face everyone in a screen-centric world • Kick start a healthy mindset in order to maximize energy • Relearn the ability to be present in the moment in order to cope with daily stresses Along with the speech, Tessa will guide the audience through breathing exercises and light stretching to demonstrate techniques that can be used anytime, anywhere. The science behind the use of breathing exercises will illuminate how oxygen benefits both sides of the brain, freeing the logical and creative nerve centers to work together effectively, and both relaxing and energizing the body. Light stretching and yoga poses can easily be done in business attire, underscoring the benefits of the mind and body connection. Participants leave with an understanding of the health risks of sitting for prolonged periods and the importance of taking quick breaks throughout the day so that they can be more productive and alert in the time they are at their workstations. In addition, participants are coached to identify actions, emotions and behaviors that are not serving their interests, and are given instruction on how to eliminate that “baggage” to allow them to move forward. We turn our computers off once a day so that they perform correctly. Why wouldn’t we give ourselves the same opportunity to emerge refreshed with a DAILY RESET BREAK?
