Let me illustrate the high energy, interactive, and time-conscious approach with participants visiting my vendor table. Within five minutes, the use of fast-paced, purposeful, and personal questions stimulated both engagement and open-mindedness about strengthening a stress management regimen and overall work-life balance. Specifically, I employed a two-step approach:
First, getting people’s attention by using an unconventional method of evoking memories of past performance pressure situations and then breaking the tension with a knowing laugh, and
Second, offering the “Stress Doc’s Formula for Natural SPEED,” that is, asking people about key mind-body health-life style choices along with communication-relationship styles; my goal is to help others more purposefully think about and plan ways to strengthen personal everyday stress resiliency and brain agility.
3) Do you understand when “being mindful” needs to replace “multitasking?”
"A firm 'No' a day keeps the ulcers away, and the hostilities too."

Burnout is not a sign of failure
You simply gave yourself away.
Balance work and play, faith and love
And, of course...Practice Safe Stress!
