Click here to read more...
Today's fast paced lives have us convinced that moving faster means we'll be more productive. But constantly being on the go, multi-tasking, and rushing to get things done is negatively impacting our bodies and minds – adding stress, lowering IQs, increasing anxiety, imbalancing hormones, decreasing memory, and lowering productivity, to name a few.


In Choose Stillness Over Illness, Nicole simplifies the science and physiology of stress and stillness, helping participants discover why it's imperative to step on the brake more often, why slowing down is the key to productivity, and that real power, great health, and high performance is not a result of being busy, but is rooted in our ability to be still.
