The West tells us to do.
The East tells us to be.
Master the dance of do-be-do-be-do-be so you can feel more present in the active creation of your life while caring for yourself from the inside out.
If you’re a business owner, a school district official, hospital administrator, human resources professional, DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging) professional or any other type of amazing human in search of more wellbeing support…
…and you’re looking for next-level wellbeing workshops for your staff – namely ones that not only work but stick – you’re in the right place!
If you’ve hired professionals to train your employees on wellness topics, specifically self-care, and the results were less than impressive – well, I’m not surprised.
Let me explain…
The issue isn’t in their methodology or the tips, tricks, and handy practices they shared.
According to Entrepreneur.com, the effects of stress costs around $44 billion in the US, 15.1 billion pounds in the UK, and $12.6 billion in Australia due to:
- Presenteeism (at work, but unproductive)
- Productivity losses
- Workplace accidents
The issue came down to the implementation, the integration of these ideas into one’s lives. Part of the problem of traditional wellness training is that they tend to take a one-size-fits-all approach, and I think we can agree that most things aren’t one-size-fits-all. Wellness and self-care are a dance, a flow if you will – each person lives a drastically different life than the next, with varying sets of circumstances and other roles and diverse responses.
A one-time training usually leaves your people excited by the fresh perspective, with nowhere to go and no one to help them. Or… it can leave them feeling like “oh yeah, that’s great in theory, but have you seen the circumstances of my life? This is just wishful thinking!”
The implementation is where the magic happens
It’s this implementation that makes all the difference between “oh that’s nice” and “wow, I’ll never NOT do this” in wellbeing training.
Working on a wellbeing strategy to support your company’s HR and DEIB initiatives? I’ve got you there too.
So you might be wondering who I am…
As a speaker, author of the book The Self-Care Survival Guide for Employees, and wellbeing mentor I’m well versed in the balance it takes to keep employees happy, healthy, and satisfied with their work culture, namely when it’s being overhauled or created from scratch entirely. My experience spans many years and started with my background as a former HR Manager who battled burnout and autoimmune diseases and being the daughter of an 18-year cancer warrior who fell victim to the prescription medication and opioid crisis.
I created my life’s work from the ground up using my own experiences with the tools and resources I found that helped me create a drastically different life – all from taking an active part in creating it while using self-care as my footing. I share first hand how radical self-care and connection back to myself drastically diverted health destruction and transformed it into creating a much different life. I love to share the things I’ve found with the people who need them – your employees, for example. To me, organizational wellbeing initiatives can only be as effective as the employees who engage in them, including the C-Suite. You’re an employee too you know =) Company culture and morale can only shift when the entire company is playing together, doing their own work and creating a supportive environment. Everyone is included.
THE SELF-CARE SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR EMPLOYEES
In a world full of “do, do, do,” meet the goals, manage 100+ tasks at once, accept the 60 hour work weeks with a smile, get to work on time, don’t call off work sick, have a great attitude, don’t complain, stay focused – and make sure you also take care of your health, exercise, drink enough water, spend time with your family, be a stellar parent and model citizen, get enough sleep and eat well – it’s no wonder emotional turmoil and disease are running rampant in our workplaces.

Are you hesitant to bring in an outside consultant again only to get less than you were expecting?
I am so confident of its value that if you and your group enlist my support and still don’t believe it was worth every penny, I’ll make it right.
That’s a Misty G Guarantee 😉
