Our energy is contagious.

What does it mean to manage and balance our time and energy?

As leaders, entrepreneurs, friends, family members, partners, parents, siblings, mentors-our energy affects those around us. We navigate our every day in motion, transitioning from one call, task, project to the next, barely having a moment to catch our breath.

This fast-paced movement is unsustainable and oftentimes leads to a breaking point. Especially now, many of our patterns of work do not fit in this current environment. In this session, we will explore the science of stress, wellbeing, and nature to improve the quality of our work and life.

Participants will walk away with strategies that support the pause and the transition, helping to shed old habits and create new ones that are connected to their own energy rhythms in order to produce desired outcomes.
