Jumping Off the Gerbil Wheel
So many women go to bed at night unable to fall asleep because their minds are spinning with all the tasks left unfinished. On top of that, there is often guilt over the important aspects of their lives being pushed aside for the crisis of the moment or being ignored altogether. After attending this program, participants will:
Understand how they end up running constantly and feeling like they never get anywhere
Be able to identify when things are getting out of control
Know how to use a simple strategy for ending the cycle
Sandy walks participants through the cycle helping them understand what's happening. She helps them shift their mindset and gives them a path to more peace and satisfaction. After the event, participants can then end the cycle and design their days so they feel fulfilled and peaceful at the end of each day. (This program is available as a talk or a workshop.)
Roadmap to Relieving Stress & Anxiety
Stress and anxiety are at high levels across our society, causing women to suffer. There are diverse factors affecting our emotional well-being and many of these did not exist or were much more limited in decades past. In this new millennium, people are finding that the way they managed stress in the past isn't working anymore. In this presentation, Sandy shares the building blocks for emotional wellness as she helps participants find real relief from stress and anxiety. Participants learn what they can do to manage stress on a regular basis as well as what to do when life becomes challenging or gets out of control. Participants will walk away with a new sense of control and actionable strategies for lowering stress and anxiety in everyday life.
Sandy's work is rooted in helping people make powerful choices that impact their lives. Along the way she discovered her tools and strategies were reducing the stress people felt. After studying stress, anxiety, trauma, and resiliency, she discovered why. Now she is passionate about helping individuals, families, and organizations empower themselves to live well and create emotional wellness.
This presentation is adaptable and may be structured as a keynote, plenary talk, or workshop. It is customizable and works well for women's groups, parent groups, colleges, businesses, and community organizations.
An eye opener. I had not considered that if I am not handling stress appropriately I can’t help anyone else.
I am an incredible over-achiever and have anxiety... I will definitely use these skills I learned today.
Thank you for reminding me to do the little stress-relieving things. They make a difference.
Now I see how I can say no. I finally feel like I can be in control of my life!

Real Rest and Stress Relief with Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra Guided Meditation
People spend much of their time in an anxious or stressed state and meditation, while helpful, can present a real challenge for many individuals. Yoga Nidra is a simple, guided meditation practice which has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety. Participants remain in a comfortable pose, either in a chair or lying on the floor, while a guide takes them on a journey that relaxes the body, mind, and emotions. Sandy is a certified Yoga Nidra guide and will lead participants in a meditation journey.
Yoga Nidra Workshop
In this workshop, Sandy will explain what Yoga Nidra is and the benefits of this practice. She will discuss ways we can use it in our daily lives and lead participants in a guided meditation followed by a group exercise.
