‘Discipline is doing what needs to be done, even if you don’t want to do it’…’It is the bridge between goals and accomplishments’. It is often said that discipline is a muscle – you have to train it. In today’s comfortable society, it is all too easy to fall into the grips of temptation that steers you along the path of an easy existence. Whilst this might provide short term gratification, true happiness, fulfilment and success remain elusive as deep down you know you are not being the best version of yourself. This workshop explains the forces at play as we navigate our daily decision making, giving you extra clarity and resolve to take the path less trodden… If you think you’re up to the challenge.
With competition stronger than it’s ever been in the world of business, employees face challenges akin to that of a professional athlete. This workshop educates and empowers staff to prioritise personal health and well-being to enable them to thrive professionally.
Stress: the epidemic of our times. Research says the business world now operates seven times faster than even the start of the century. It’s no wonder we are finding it hard to keep pace. At times like this, good old ancient wisdom can lend us a real helping hand. Perception is everything. Changing it is simple. But not easy. Creating a culture amongst colleagues that promotes harmony is a game changer in altering perceptions, not just in business, but in life. Allow us to inject some stoicism into proceedings.

Of course, everyone knows the basic healthy eating message. Having said this, everyone can
be influenced by popular dietary trends. This talk starts with an overview of the health
issues that are affected by what we eat, including obesity, cancer, diabetes, IBS, mental
health and children’s development. Following this, the pros and cons of current popular
trends and fads are analysed and various dietary myths are exposed. A healthy eating
message is presented that is grounded in scientific evidence. Evidence-based dietary
recommendations are given about what to eat to help prevent health issues and to improve
general well-being. All suggestions are realistic and healthy to maintain in the long-term. The
session concludes with some practical tips about how these dietary changes can be
incorporated into today’s busy lifestyle.
Research suggests that having erratic blood sugar can result in diminished productivity at work. Blood sugar which is not well controlled has also been linked to lack of concentration, low mood and disturbed sleep, in both adults and children. An overview is given of the science behind what you eat and how it affects the glycaemic response. This incorporates an explanation of the relationship between glucose and insulin, and an explanation of other factors such as dietary fat and fibre which interact with these. From here, a diet which is good for balancing the blood sugar is recommended, which is energising and healthy for everyone, not just those with diabetes. The talk finishes with practical ideas about how to incorporate changes in eating behaviour into everyday life, in order to keep blood sugar steady, and thereby increasing concentration and productivity.
In order to inspire people to make dietary changes to reduce their cancer risk, it is important
to understand that food can damage DNA and that, as a result, some cancers can be
prevented by changing the diet. This topic is therefore introduced by a scientific overview of
cancer as well as various shocking cancer statistics. Some common myths relating food to
cancer risk are exposed, many of which are perpetuated by the media. Finally, the three
main nutritional risk factors for cancer, based on convincing scientific evidence, are assessed
in more detail. An overview of a diet in which these risk factors are reduced is given.
Importantly, this discussion is not about a ‘one size fits all’ approach, and does not suggest
anything is eliminated. Rather, is about equipping each individual with the information
required to choose how to eat to reduce their cancer risk to a level that they feel
comfortable with. The session concludes with some practical advice on how changes can
realistically be incorporated into the diet for the long-term reduction of risk.
Obesity is a multifaceted, worldwide issue which is now the biggest threat to human health,
increasing the risk of heart disease, stroke, type II diabetes and cancer, not to mention
affecting general quality of life and psychological issues such as self-esteem. This session
starts with some shocking statistics (for example, over two thirds of UK adults are now
overweight) and an analysis of the great many factors which contribute to the obesity
epidemic. Some dangers of current dietary trends the public are using to manage weight,
such as low carbohydrate and other diets, are highlighted. Following this, evidence-based
advice is given about balanced dietary changes which can be made to reduce weight. This
does not deviate from the same healthy diet recommended to everyone to prevent disease,
but in smaller portion sizes. This talk is therefore equally informative for those who wish to
maintain their healthy weight in the long-term, and not just those wishing to lose weight.
This session starts by discussing various challenges facing parents raising children in the
modern world. Issues include the obesogenic environment we live in, the attraction and
convenience of processed food, conflicting advice about weaning, picky eating behaviour,
school meals, the impact of social media on children’s opinions, and the limited
opportunities to cook and sit down for family meals. A strong focus of this talk is about
practicalities and what is realistic to achieve. Ideas are given for weaning, healthy
breakfasts, lunchboxes, post sport re-fuelling, children’s snacking, as well as main meals the
whole family can enjoy. Some psychological techniques are suggested that parents can use
to reduce picky eating behaviour. Suggestions are given about how to engage a child or
teenager with the concept of healthy eating. This encourages self-motivation of children to
make their own healthy food choices which they can carry through to adulthood.
It is estimated that reduced mental health is the cause of 40% of all days lost to sickness
within the workplace in the UK. Furthermore, depression, anxiety, stress and poor sleep are mental health issues, even if not formally diagnosed, that can affect performance within the workplace. Although an emerging field with much research still to be done, the scientific basis of links between nutrition and mental health are discussed, for example the connection between gut health and the brain. Recommendations are given for a diet which boosts nutrients and balances blood sugar to promote mental well-being, including increased energy, better and more balanced mood and improved quality of sleep. Practical tips are provided about how to make realistic dietary changes which may improve mental well-being.
This talk begins with an overview of the health risks of eating a poor diet and an outline of the recommended dietary goals for general health and well-being. After this groundwork has been laid, the main focus of this session is to help individuals understand what affects their food choices. There are a great many reasons why many people do not manage to achieve a healthy diet, despite being well-educated in dietary information and pursuing a goal of healthy eating. Psychological aspects of eating are discussed to create an understanding of the barriers to changing eating and drinking behaviour. Socio-cultural and environmental
factors which affect food choices are highlighted. Strategies for how to successfully change
behaviour and techniques to make it easier to make the right dietary choices are suggested. To finish, practical tips are given about how to cook and shop to make it easier to attain the healthy eating goal that many people strive for, but which is so difficult to achieve.
In addition to the speaker topics listed above, one-to-one consultations are offered for
individuals with particular nutritional concerns. In addition to general healthy eating advice to minimise disease risk, areas of specialist knowledge for personal consultations are weight management, blood sugar control and picky eating behaviour in children, but many other areas can be considered too. For one-to-one consultations, each individual is invited to
complete a dietary questionnaire beforehand so that effectiveness of the session is maximised. A wealth of ideas on a practical level for healthy food choices which can fit into busy lives is a large part of the one-to-one advice given. Guidance on how to overcome the psychological challenges of changing eating behaviour can also be provided. Consultations
can be extended into group seminars, interactive workshops and discussion groups.
