Great job completing the challenge! Now you can take the next step and take Dr. Carmack's "pulse check" for well-being. Learn more here.
Dr. Suzie Carmack is a genius in creating a bite size system that we can incoporate throughout our day. Something as simple as breathing, standing, changing position, moving our bodies, etc. will result in re-setting our mind and body. Re-setting our minds and body enables us to be more efficient, effective and more calm throughout the day. I recommend that you purchase 2 books (one for you to use as a handy guide at your work place) and the other as a gift to a family member or friend who is always stressed. What a concept - the gift of peace of mind!"
"Clearly, helps improve balance and I can see this being a great tool in the workday."
"Regardless of career, all should learn about genius breaks and implement them into their lives to help reduce stress and take a break from the constant go-go-go of life. Excellent book!"
