Balanced Living Series

A 4-part series to incorporate balance, ease and flow into your life

Join us for one or more of the topics, or attend the entire series to create a sustained focus on enhancing your life in the coming months.

Today’s high-demand workplace culture can have an impact on your health and has been associated with an increased risk for certain health conditions, including insomnia, heart disease, obesity, stomach ulcers, depression, and more.

Each of the seminars in this 4-part series explores a specific topic, with the facilitator (a Naturopathic Doctor) engaging the audience to provide information and tools that can be put into practice immediately, and to open a dialogue to address the concerns specific to your job and lifestyle.

Available to UTM/UTSC via Adobe Connect. Click on the Register button and staff at UTM/UTSC will receive instructions a day prior to the session.

Good-For-You-Stress: Building A Positive Stress Mindset

Stress is not all bad. Stress can enhance performance and growth, raise your energy levels, improve health, and lead to greater life satisfaction. BUT only if you have a positive stress mindset – seeing stress as a challenge, positive, health-enhancing state. This goes beyond positive thinking and having a good attitude. You will not only walk away from this session with tools to build a positive stress mindset, but will also leave with a transformed stress mindset with immediate changes to your cognition, emotional state and stress hormone levels.
