I'm reading online feedback about an onsite lunch-n-learn I taught yesterday. I was admittedly a little hesitant/curious to read the responses for this class because I felt like I "pushed the envelope" a bit more than usual.

The more I teach (10 years and counting) the more I have a WTH attitude. I used to hold back on talking about things like Bach Flower Remedies, Guided Imagery, Trauma Release Exercises, etc. But I'm taking more chances lately and feeling like my corporate audiences want this information more and more.

Yesterday's group was an engineering firm and I presented all the above and more regarding non-traditional therapies for stress reduction. Here is some of the feedback so far.

"Best instructor I've experienced in a long time. Good personal anecdotes, practical knowledge, references to doctors and further reading material. Good job."

"Great ideas for stress relief, everything from food and supplements to easy physical things to do to more intense exercise ideas."

"Very good presenter, enjoyed it. Thank you for having these kind of classes."



I think I'll keep "pushing the envelope."  I love what I do!

How do you nourish yourself? i.e. are there particular foods you choose to eat on a consistent basis? What about exercise? Do you have a nourishing routine or practice? But more importantly what about other areas in your life like: emotions, relationships, relaxation, finances, work, spirit etc. how do you" feed" and nourish those areas? Just curious and would love to hear what nourishes you! #FoodForThought
