Corporate Health & Wellness Team Building
As a firm believer that in order to be productive & exceed in our roles, we need to have strong mental & physical health now more than ever! With that in mind Bill and I have been invited to present a series of different mental & physical wellbeing activities to some forward thinking companies who embrace the idea, 'One Team One Goal' - Our first online presentation covers the importance of a healthy diet for gut maintenance. With the world we live in right now it’s critical to improve our immune system to stay healthy.
There is no silver “bullet” that solves all problems, or any long-term result without commitment. We are most interested in working together with you to develop a plan of action specifically suited to the needs of you and your staff. The goal of the Corporate Well-Being Programme is to significantly improve the health and vitality of those enrolled. Participants will receive information and practical training in ways to improve their nutrition, fitness levels, mental health and vitality using techniques that are easy to follow and that produce timely results. My husband Bill Tara and I have 90 years combined experience teaching around the world. As international authors and health counsellors our clients range from European royalty, lawyers, bankers and many from the movies and arts.
Understanding Nutrition and Weight Control
Eating well is the most important single factor in good health and often the most challenging. We feel it has been made too complicated. The answers to healthy living do not reside in counting calories or following the latest weight loss programme – they lay in common sense. Bill and I have adapted the principles of ancient Asian wisdom with nutritional science to arrive at an approach to eating that considers personal preference, environment, physical habits and personal health goals.
Health is a dominant factor in our life. Health can allow us to fully express our potential, enjoy the simple pleasures of life and make us more resilient to physical and emotional stress. Health is often described as a state of balance but balance with what? The word homeostasis is sometimes used meaning a state of dynamic balance between ourselves and our environment.
Ancient Wisdom for Modern Times
Our increased scientific knowledge and the traditional wisdom of many cultures shows us that the key to good health starts in the gut. Our intestinal tract contains the internal environment of the gut biome. It is here where the nutritional components of the external environment go through the processes of digestion and absorption. This is governed by the 100 trillion micro-organisms in the gut. It is in this internal environment where the most intimate contact between us and the outer world take place. We control this community of cells through our daily food.
A major function of the gut biome is immunity. In the biome, the immune system can “practice” and develop the resistance to pathogens that may enter the body. In light of the increasing dangers for viral disease, the building of a healthy gut biome MUST be a priority for good health.
Personal Potential Maintenance
Once you are on our client list, we can provide you with refresher programmes that will better assure that the good work done is not wasted. We suggest monthly refreshers with the integration of new material to keep participants engaged. This can include online cooking classes, personal health questions and answers from your team and a host of other valuable presentations delivered on many topics.
Corporate Anti-Stress Programme
While there is no way to totally eliminate stress from our lives, anyone can learn simple techniques to reduce its harmful effects. It has been shown that simple physical and mental exercises can significantly reduce stress and increase mental acuity.
Our Anti-Stress programme teaches participants practical ways to relax, renew and unwind in a short time both in the office and at home. Your staff will learn how to overcome the tensions of the day and focus their attention on their work rather than on what’s not working.
"Wellbeing of staff both mentally & physically should be the most important factor for any organisation. As part of our Wellbeing theme we chose to work with Marlene to run a very informative session for our UK team. Her decades of experience and unique skills along with her 'can-do' vibrant personality made the experience not only educational but fun. Learning how to eat right for maintaining a healthy gut is critical now more than ever. The whole team enjoyed the session and it was a start to a transformational journey for many of us …
As leaders in any organisations you should know that your employees are the greatest asset, and looking after their wellbeing should be every leaders no.1 priority."
