Stress, Overload and the Road Back to Balance

“Your presentation at our national conference was excellent. Our group was very impressed with your message and your style. You certainly have my highest recommendation. Your sessions on Stress Management have relevance for everyone in the public and private sectors, particularly with the increased workload demands and stress that we face each day. I found your perspective very enlightening and I have made personal changes as a result.”

More than 97% of all visits to physician’s offices are diagnosed as stress related complaints. Companies spend over $300 billion, or $7,500 per employee, a year on problems connected with work-related stress. Fear, worry, frustration and depression, obesity and dis-ease are running rampant. You can change all that.

GOT STRESS? Whether in your everyday personal life, or at work, stress is a constant companion. There is good stress, we need that, but the affects of unhealthy and negative stress causes more problems than most people realize. Stress is the root cause of many cases of employee burnout. 40 percent of workers in study surveys found their job “very or extremely stressful.” Add to this terrorism, prices going up, unsteady work environments and personal and family problems… evidence of the widespread nature of stress is worldwide.

Kim, “Dr. DeClutter”, will keep you thinking, laughing and realizing that there are many simple ways around stress and daily frustrations, no matter what they are. She will give specific workable steps to lessen everyday stress, distractions and frustrations – big and small – and the keys to gain balance and peace of mind and body.
