Boost Your Brain
Most people work on building up and boosting their financial assets. But how many people work on building up and boosting their greatest asset: their brain? The emerging field of neuroplasticity has shown that the brain can change its own structure and function. It can grow new cells, new circuits and new connections in response to what we do, what we think and how we behave. This presentation distils the essence of the neuroplastic revolution and gives immediately implementable, practical suggestions to improve the functioning of our brain.
Come Alive and Thrive
Be prepared to get a new lease on life, to reignite your spark, and to have more energy and vitality than you ever remember having. This fast paced, information packed session reveals the key steps to vibrant health and consistently being at your best. This presentation cuts through the clutter of confusing and contradictory messages in the media and reveals how great health is not a distant destination but a daily choice.
Health Professional Self Care: Do you practise what you preach?
We live in a culture that has confused self care with being selfish. Self care is something we tend to try and fit in only after we have fulfilled all our other duties, obligations and responsibilities. This presentation invites participants to think of self care differently: as something that needs to come first because it enables us to fulfil all our other duties, obligations and responsibilities much more effectively and with more joy.
Let Healing Happen
This presentation shows how healing can happen if we change the language of medicine from the vocabulary of war to the language of love. Instead of speaking about fighting the infection, battling against cancer and struggling with weight loss, lets care for our bodies, listen to our needs and feel our feelings. In war there are always casualties, whether the battle is won or lost. The same applies when we fight our bodies, even if it is in the name of cure. Our hearts and bodies will guide us if we remove the impediments in our way.
Meditate for Mastery
The mind is our most powerful tool and our most forceful opponent. What is the mind in relation to the brain and how do they operate? Could stilling the mind be as important as stimulating the mind? What is meditation and why bother with it? By the end of this session, participants will experience meditation as more than just a bubble bath. Mastering our mind is not about forcing ourselves to think positively but choosing to think constructively, or not choosing to think at all. Sometimes pressing the pause button on our thinking enables us to tap into the best solutions.
The 7 Habits of Highly Healthy People
Great health is not an act, an annual detox or 12 week transformation. Great health is ultimately a habit. Motivation gets you started but habits keep you going. In this presentation you will discover and set up, the key habits of mind and body that ensure optimal health and enable you to be at your best on a daily basis.
The X Factor for Excellence
The X Factor refers to that indefinable something that makes for star quality. Technical mastery of skills is no longer enough to stand out and be truly memorable. Everyone in these highly competitive times is good. The X factor is about being extraordinary. This does not happen through chance or luck. There is a science, specifically a neuroscience, to success. The X Factor for Excellence is for individuals and organisations who want to be truly remarkable, in business, in performance and in reputation.
Turn Stress into Success
Stress is an inevitable part of life. Intermittent, mild stress is not a bad thing. It assists in building up our resilience and it switches on our adrenal glands to release performance enhancing chemicals. However chronic or severe stress has a detrimental effect on our performance as well as on our physical, mental and emotional health. Unchecked stress is a contributing factor in every major illness we suffer and can lead to erosion of brain function, reduced immunity to disease and body fat deposition. Helena explains how we can use stress to our advantage and turn stressful events into successful outcomes, both personally and professionally.
