I just wanted to send a huge thank you your way (and to anyone else who helped to make the Energia training possible). Since starting the course, I have been waking up early to head out for 5:30 am walks [...] I have begun working on positive coping strategies and have taken a good look at how I can handle stressful situations differently. My positive self-talk has increased, and I have realized that while I still have some work to do (maybe a lot), this is something worth investing in...I am someone worth investing in.
I live in a household where 4 of the 5 members have clinically diagnosed mental health issues of varying severity and control levels. A lot of what Dr. George noted really hit home and re-enforced strategies that I practice today with each of them as well as helped me discover some new strategies that I could bring into the formula.
Dr George's presentation was nothing short of Amazing! He covered A LOT of content in such a short period of time, all the while keeping the audience interested. Work & Family life balance always seems to be a struggle. He found a way to explain...how to achieve the balance & most importantly WHY it is important. Best outside presenter of any meeting, ever! Really great talk! As someone who is a bit jaded when it comes to guest speakers - detest the motivational speaker ''wishy washy'' unscientific stuff - Dr. George was refreshing as all his great advice was grounded in good science!
