Life is not a Stress Rehearsal For most of us life has become a pressure cooker of unrealistic expectations, information overload, relentless marketing and workaholism. We spend our days stressed out over being stressed out. Loretta makes us see the wisdom of a more civilized time when no one carried a cell phone during a peaceful walk on the beach. With her contemporary wit and a hearty dose of old-world wisdom, Loretta brings a breath of fresh air for everyone who’s suffocating in our techno crazed, germ-phobic, “go-go-go” world. Life is Short! Wear Your Party Pants Loretta has helped millions of people find ways to lighten up and overcome stress. In this presentation she gives you the tools you need to not only reduce feelings of tension, but also to bring joy, passion, and gusto into your life.

Loretta gives you dozens of proven techniques for recognizing the ten simple truths that will lead you to an intense, happy, successful life: resilience, living in the moment, optimism, acceptance, humor, creativity, moderation, responsibility, meaning, and connection. How to Prevent Hardening of the Attitude Our work literally takes up most of our lives. Therefore, it would make sense for us to choose to enjoy it. Find out how to look forward to Monday instead of enduring until Friday! Discover how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can affect work performance, relationships and our own self-worth. Humor is Serious Business! Over the years Loretta has been asked by many of her workshop participants to develop a training program to instruct them in her pioneering techniques on how to use humor as a coping mechanism for stress management. Her model incorporates years of study and experience which melds psychology, philosophy, science and her innate humor which has made her a leading expert in her field. This program can be either 90 minutes or 3 hour Workshop. The WOW Factor: Wisdom, Openness and Wonder as a Benchmark for Living Well We’ve all met enthusiastic, energetic people that leave us wondering what they could possibly be “on” to be the way they are. Most individuals today report fatigue and stress as a way of life. There are a myriad of causes, but the most prevalent problem is the notion that life is a constant series of tasks that need to be accomplished and expedited quickly. As a result taking care of one’s health and happiness becomes secondary to making sure everything is done by the end of the day. Ironically this mentality actually drains our resources and dampens the very thing we need to have a productive life which is energy, or a feeling of “WOW”. Our ability to use our wisdom, be open to new ideas and experience wonder in the everyday is exchanged for a robotic mentality based on forging ahead. When we are in a “WOW” mode relationships flourish, success is more attainable, and we tend to feel more energetic.
