Since the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in us spending more time in front of a screen, organizations and groups are requesting shorter online seminars. As a result, we’ve created ‘The Stress Series’, a series of 30-45 minute seminars aimed at helping participants create healthy routines and habits that help reduce stress on the body and mind. Full details and topics are below.
Seminars are available in 2 formats:
Currently, we have four seminars available, but additional seminars will be added. If you’d like a specific topic addressed for your group or business, please refer to the list of available 1 hour Wellness Seminars or submit your request here.
All participants receive a discount on The 8 Weeks to Awesome Wellness Challenge. All seminars include a Q&A session, can be booked for groups of any size across multiple locations, and can be customized for a company’s goals, disciplines and management teams.CONTACT US

“Bite-sized” tips to manage your waistline during and after COVID-19
It didn’t take long for people to start worrying about ‘The Quarantine 15’, the dreaded extra 15 pounds that could be gained as a result of eating more and moving less during this restrictive and stressful time. In this seminar, Nicole provides realistic advice and immediate tips to help participants manage stress eating, cravings and weight gain during and after this pandemic.

“Nicole’s Stress & Wellness Seminar was outstanding.”
Every business needs team members who are productive and happy. At Xeva Mortgage, we understand that, in order to be productive and happy, you must also be healthy. So we started the year making the health of our brokers and partners a priority.
To educate our team, we invited Nicole to our annual conference to speak about stress. Amongst other things, we learned how stress can be more than getting a mortgage approved, managing client expectations, or trying to find work-life balance. Stress also comes in the form of habits like poor diet, dehydration, too much screen time, imbalanced exercise programs and overthinking, which can impact our physical health, yes, but also our mental and emotional health, which can ultimately impact productivity and happiness.
Nicole’s Stress & Wellness Seminar was outstanding – eye opening, informative, and presented in a way that made difficult concepts easy to understand. Thank you, Nicole, for being so passionate about what you do, and for helping to set up the Xeva team for success in the coming years.
