When most people define stress, they immediately think of deadlines, financial pressure, or a conflict at work or home. And although these are legitimate stressors, your body and mind are chronically subjected to stress in ways you may not even consider. Revealing the Top 10 unhealthy habits derailing the health of today’s working professional, Nicole explains why today’s definition of ‘stress’ needs to be redefined; how stress impacts immunity, digestion, and other key systems in the body; and why getting these habits under control can result in overwhelming health, happiness, and productivity – at work and at home.
Are you confused by the masses of diet and nutrition advice in the media? In this informative and mind-shifting seminar, you’ll learn the top 10 food mistakes that could be keeping you from getting the results you want. Whether you struggle to maintain a healthy weight or overcome fatigue, sugar cravings, digestive issues, headaches, brain fog, or other chronic health complaints, you’ll walk away with realistic solutions and a fresh and informed outlook on what, when, where and why you eat.
Get ready to shift the way you think about exercise! With decades of fitness experience and a unique approach to exercise, Nicole explains why changing your reasons for why you move your body might be the key to getting long-term results. Having worked as a Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer, and Pilates Coach, Nicole also shares The 360 Rule, a concept she created to help busy professionals realistically incorporate ongoing fitness into their busy lives. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why we will all be in better shape when we care more about our insides than our outsides.
As humans, we have incredibly advanced brains. And although this complexity allows us to make equally complex decisions, it can also result in overthinking, getting ‘stuck in our heads’, or creating something from nothing. In this presentation, you’ll understand how your thoughts can impact your health, receive practical tips for how to stop overanalysis in its tracks, and learn why this act of ‘rumination’ can keep you from mastering one of the most important skills to have – the ability to listen to what your body is telling you.CONTACT US TO LEARN MORE
Are you a busy professional who believes that the only way to really get results is to always be doing? Then this seminar is for you. Combining scientific evidence with mindfulness, this 60-minute presentation will help you understand why stillness and mindful breathing can help you achieve your health and wellness goals. Incorporating a practical element, this hour of doing ‘nothing’ could be your most productive hour yet!
Technology is advancing at speeds we cannot manage, which is throwing us into a whirlwind of multitasking mania. What’s the problem? Firstly, we weren’t made to multi-task; secondly, our nervous systems and hormones are already overloaded; and thirdly, we are underestimating the health implications of overexposure to electromagnetic frequencies. This informative and challenging presentation will teach you why doing one thing at a time is not only good for productivity but also good for your health.
Changing a habit may not always seem like the easiest thing to do, but once you learn how much of it is mind (or mindfulness) over matter, it just might give you the faith you need to succeed. Rooted in neuroscience (the study of the brain and nervous system), this presentation will demonstrate why you can change any habit – as long as you ‘put your mind to it’.
The average person is missing out on 1 month of sleep per year. And since sleep is one of the few ways we can fully restore our bodies from the stresses of the day, it’s imperative that we get our sleep schedules under control. This presentation explains the connection between screen time, sleep, stress, hormones, and common health complaints, ultimately giving you the motivation you need to get a little less screen time and a lot more sleep!
Sugar is addictive. If you have a sugar craving, it signifies an imbalance in the body. Stress causes the body to crave sugar. True. True. True.
In this presentation, Nicole connects the dots between stress and cravings, explains why processed sugar must be eliminated from our diets, and gives realistic advice on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle but still have a little fun – without feeling guilty. Welcome to The Cheat Principle.
Travel and accommodations are not included in the seminar fee. Additional fees apply if content is customized, if additional healthcare professionals are included, or if additional fees are incurred.
“The most beneficial part of our corporate wellness challenge was Nicole’s seminar.”
Nicole spoke to our team at Adera as a way to launch an internal wellness initiative we were running. The information we learned about nutrition, dieting, cravings, exercise, sleep, breathing, multi-tasking, and other stress-inducing habits was certainly eye-opening and definitely helped us take our team challenge to another level. In the follow-up survey with employees, the majority agreed that the most beneficial part of our corporate wellness initiative was Nicole’s ‘Let’s Talk About Stress’ seminar. A smaller group of us also signed up for her 8-week team challenge as a result. Thank you, Nicole, for sharing your knowledge and experience so we could understand some really complicated health topics, for being so supportive during our group challenge, and for helping us realize that being healthy really does start on the inside.

“We finally know how to approach life to get the most of it.”
Our corporate purpose statement ends with “live healthier lives”. I used that as the theme for a quarterly team meeting in January but wondered how I could help. Diets tend to be the mainstream solution yet they rarely work. I was looking for a more holistic approach and when I met Nicole Porter, I knew I had found it. I asked Nicole to do a back-to-back seminar and workshop for the team and her passion and knowledge of wellness shone through the entire session. I can speak for my entire team when I say we finally know how to approach life to get the most of it.
