HOW DOES AN INDIVIDUAL’S STRESS AFFECT THE REST OF AN ORGANIZATION?
On average, we spend 1/3 of our lives working. Chronic, unmanaged stress doesn’t just harm individual health. It drains the financial wellbeing of business, literally leaking money, resulting in:
Soaring insurance premiums and worker’s compensation
In the health care industry alone—one of our country’s biggest employers - companies lose $1 million per year due to absenteeism.
According to a recent Career Builder survey, health care providers have higher stress levels and complaints than employees of any other industry, including the professional, business service and retail sectors.
As an experienced nurse and the author of America's REAL Health Care Crisis: The cost of chronic, unmanaged STRESS to physicians, nurses and first responders, I understand the emotional, physical and mental toll of unmanaged, chronic stress on health care providers. This debilitating stress is crippling the health care industry in terms of lost productivity, high turnover, caregiver burn-out and medical mistakes.
WHO IS YOUR CORPORATE WELLNESS PROGRAM FOR?
From health care providers and non-profit organizations to technology and finance companies, stress doesn’t discriminate. My wellness program is ideal for any organization invested in creating a healthy work environment where employees feel valued and supported.
WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH?
Through an integrated Whole Person approach, I’ll help your organization recover its greatest asset — employees and care providers who feel valued, healthy and empowered.
Without awareness we cannot create transformative change, which is why I do more than monitor employees’ weight, blood pressure or cholesterol levels. A state of well-being is achieved through a multi-dimensional approach in which I look at the entire human, not just a symptom or a disorder. I teach participants:
How the body functions and responds mentally, physically and emotionally to chronic stress
The relationship between stress and common health problems, like sleep issues, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, mental illness and more.
Simple, practical tools to better manage chronic stress throughout life and achieve optimal wellbeing.
WHAT MAKES YOUR CORPORATE WELLNESS PROGRAM SPECIAL?
Participants learn to recognize what stress looks like for them, and how to transform learned responses and thought patterns that have been preventing them from achieving optimal wellbeing. Here are just a few components of my 8-week comprehensive wellness program:
Self Evaluation – What does wellness actually mean to YOU? What does happiness mean to you? What is your greatest desire?
Recognizing the role of STRESS in total body wellness - How does the stress response affect your digestion, sleep, critical thinking and weight?
Mental/Emotional Wellbeing - Are you ready/willing to create the change you desire for your health and life? Do you know what your needs are? Are your needs being met?
Spiritual - What gives you strength? Do you take time to connect to your higher power.
Diet & Exercise - Knowing your blood type is key in finding what foods and activities are best for you to improve digestion, reduce inflammation and experience long-term weight loss, improved energy and focus.
Of course, creating change is a not a one-size fits all approach. I can custom-design a program according to the needs of your organization.
