Music Therapy To
Reduce Stress

Reach for Music: How to Neutralize Stress to Increase Creativity and Engagement

The Problem:
The chronic nature of modern stress at home and at work affects more than just
health and happiness. When you are stressed, you misinterpret the outside world as hostile, even when it is neutral. You see hostility in people’s faces, tones of voice, and even texts or emails. In other words, you’re the one that starts the fight without even realizing it. Creativity, focus, and interpersonal connection all become sacrificed to reactivity and getting out of danger. FAST.

The Solution:
In this interactive and very musical workshop, your team will be led through several
music-based experiences that will unlock their creativity, focus, and connection with each other. Your team will also learn and experience how to use music to immediately turn off stress when it strikes so that they can accomplish their important work on a daily basis without getting distracted or distraught by interruptions or emergencies.

Navigating Change

V.E.R.O.: A 4-Step Formula for Navigating Change

The Problem:
“Houston… we have a problem.” When things change, we often think something’s
gone wrong, and humans act predictably. They go into ‘fight or flight’ instead of adapt mode. They tell stories about why things are the way they are based on assumptions, interpretations, and projections. They often talk themselves out of the solution before they even give it a try. This happens at work and at home, and each has the potential to influence the other in negative ways. Fundamentally, humans underestimate their own potential and capacity to adapt to change.

The Soluation:
Imagine sitting at your local coffee shop and the singer on stage drops a TED talk on you without you even realizing it. In this musical “keynote concert,” you and your team will be introduced to a simple, easy to follow formula to handle change in a powerful and creative way. In this “Keynote Concert,” Tim plays his way through a simple and easy to implement formula for overcoming adversity and change in a ‘cafe style’ delivery. Your audience will be inspired, entertained, and educated all at the same time.

BRAIN OPTIMIZATION

Top Gear: How to Optimize Your Brain for Life

The Problem:
As Dr. Daniel Amen likes to say, “The brain is involved in everything you do.” The challenge with that is that in our modern world, our brain is being taxed to work longer and faster than ever. There is a fundamental mismatch between the amount
of stimulation our senses receive per day and our ability to manage that information. In addition, factors like sedentary lifestyle, exposure to environmental toxins in the air, water, and food, and the sheer doubling of lifespan over the past century has caused increases in physical and mental health issues never before seen. The demands we place on our brains in our produce-and-profit at-all-costs culture are too much for the brain and body.

The Solution:
Luckily, thanks to new research and technology, it’s never been easier to care for your brain. This has created an unprecedented opportunity for each one of us to take easy steps to increase our quality of life at whatever level we want. In Tim’s journey through brain injury and recovery from over 20 concussions, he has researched what are the easiest ways for anyone to care for their brain. He has interviewed countless experts, and personally utilized dozens of different modalities and synthesizes this knowledge base into a fun, interactive talk. Your audience will leave the talk empowered and inspired to become the CEO of their brain health.

Longevity

Longevity, meet Healthspan: How to Add Years to Your Life… & Life to Your Years

The Problem:
In the United States, lifespan has doubled since 1900. However, in the land of abundance, there is a shortage. The supply of doctors specializing in our aging population is one sixth the demand. In addition, the term “ageism” describes both the institutional bias against providing aging patients adequate care, and the societal bias of lack of utility once retired. Like it or not, as we age, our society does not prioritize our healthspan, which is not the quantity of years we have left, but the quality of those years.

The Solution:
The time of waiting months to visit the doctor’s office to find out any measure of our health is long gone. Thanks to research on human biology and breakthroughs in technology, we can not only add years to our life, but life to our years. Tim shares a 4 part framework that anyone can follow based on exhaustive, cross-cultural research. This empowering, educational talk outlines 7 easy to implement practices anyone can begin TODAY to take back ownership of their health in the areas of their biology, psychology, sociology, and spirituality.
