Together with our customer we asses your companies needs and provide a tailor made program or we can offer one-off workshops, webinars and trainings potentially combined with individual coaching. Varying from an hour to one or more half-days and on various topics, such as:
If a pill could do what sleep does for us it would be the most sold pill on the globe. It’s free and we get to do it every day but we often do not optimally use it. Actually in our modern world the majority of people are sleep deprived. Learning what these nightly Zzz’s do for you will fill you with a new appreciation. Understanding how sleep affects our every cell and wellbeing provides insight into this fundamental part of this basic need will motivate you to make better use of this free panacea.
Optional additional 3 week training:
For the "tossing and turning" ones amongst us. Participants will learn about the three factors that regulate sleep, about what unhelpful behavior and thoughts they currently have that contribute to their sleeping problems and which helpful ones can guide them to better sleep.
Two fundamentals for mental and physical well-being are Nutrition and Exercise. In this training we will look at how you can expand these two basic ingredients in the hybrid working context. Which foods help us thrive (build a healthy immune system and help stay energized)? How do I get myself to exercise? Success derives from the right habit design not from character.
How we can influence our grit by changing our response to adversities
The Ancient Greek aphorism "know thyself" holds much wisdom. Research has powerfully proven that resilience is the key to success at work and satisfaction in life. The secret of resilience lies in accurate thinking. It’s not about what happens but how we react to what happens that has the greatest effect on our resilience and the trajectory of our lives.

Past the nutritional fads and adds
We are bombarded with nutrition fad facts, to the point where we can’t see the wood for the trees. Wouldn’t it be easier to understand why certain foods are healthy vs. unhealthy explained from the perspective of our body’s own logic?
Our body is not a collection of separate components. It’s an intricate system in which everything works together by a blue print from the time when we were still hunter-gatherers. Our blue print has not changed our nutrition however has…
What fuels you? What empty’s your batteries? Is there a balance between the two? Are there certain self-limiting inner values or stories you tell yourself that are holding you back. How do you prevent yourself from building up an energy debt. Insight in to what your inner & external energy landscape looks will help you prioritize & helps calibrate your energy barometer.
Stress and digestion & blood sugar balancing foods
When you experience prolonged stress you can suffer from bloating, fatigue, indigestion, mood swings and increased craving for, for instance sweets or alcohol. Stress hormones also make your brain pick foods that actually worsen your stress levels and worsen the way you feel. Learning to understand your body’s signals and needs helps you to choose the right nourishment for your body.
Our stone age brain is hardwired to help us survive. Our brain overestimates threats coming at us and underestimates our resources for dealing with them. In ancient times this helped keep us alive. In modern times, with a kaleidoscope of stressors, this bias impedes us. Understanding the ways our brain tricks us and by choosing what we want to focus on helps us to create a happier, calmer and resilient brain. This simple method based on the latest scientific insights uses the power of daily experiences to 'wire' your brain towards resilience.

Coffee, certain energy drinks and nicotine turn on the internal "fight flight" system. Even though we psychologically conditioned ourselves to believe it is a moment of peace, in reality it provides our body with internal stress. Coffee is fine, just drink it in moderation, especially if you are stressed - however tempting.
