Science of Sleep
Sleep is one of your most important assets when it comes to your well-being. You can eat healthy and exercise frequently, but if you don’t sleep well you will not reach your full health potential. In this workshop, you will learn about what sleep is, why you sleep and why it is so important. Together, we will dive into the things that keep you awake and how that affects you; both now and in the long run. This science based workshop lets you experience the rhythm of sleep by using drums.
Takeaway: You will understand the science behind sleep, the different sleep rhythms in combination with brainwaves and how to optimise your sleep. After this workshop, you will know what to do to benefit the most from your nights rest.
Live/ life Balance
Work and private life are blending more and more (right now even faster due to the corona crisis). Finding balance is all about making conscious choices. This workshop will help you to get insights into how you are actually spending your time (and if this is how you want it to be). You will dive into your personal work/ life balance and you are introduced to the live/ life balance. Because: apart from the 40 (or somewhat) hours a week that you work and the hours that you sleep, you have about 72 hours left to spend.
Takeaway: You will know how to regain control over your agenda when it comes to work time and private time. You will have insights into the correlation between stress and your social/ private life and you will walk away with some clear insights into how to regain control over your life.
Nowadays, we receive more stimuli in one day than people in the Middle Ages would have received over the course of their whole lives. This workshop breaks focus down into a few models, because focusing is a lot easier when you actually understand how it works. Isn’t it weird that we were always told to concentrate and focus in school, but never learned how to actually do that? In this workshop, you will learn how to practice being focused and how to get into flow (in a productive way).
Takeaway: You will know how to (better) manage your energy and increase your focus. You will have learned practical tips on how to focus, on how to get more done during your day and on how to have more peace of mind and energy in doing so.
Too many people live their lives without purpose. Having a purpose gives you energy and a positive direction in life. This session will help you to discover your own purpose. Knowing your purpose will make it much easier to make choices and keep your balance. You’ll put your purpose in writing by following some simple exercises.
Takeaway: After this session you will have defined your own purpose. This can either be a small goal or a life changing ambition. You will know your purpose and you will have learned more about the possibilities that lay within you.
We breathe all day. But are we actually doing it the right way? Many people breathe inefficiently, which influences health, general well-being and productivity. This highly interactive workshop will teach you some background about the science of breathing and allows you to practice so that you can experience the benefits yourself!
Takeaway: You will know how to use your breath as a tool for relaxation, firing yourself up for certain tasks and supporting your general well-being. You will benefit from this for the rest of your life.

We have all heard about the concept of ”flow”. But what does it actually mean? And how do you know when you achieve this? In this workshop, you will gain insights into the ideal circumstances for achieving flow. The things that you’ll learn are based on a combination of scientific background and personal experiences. We’ll dive into the 4F Flow model and look at the hurdles that you need to overcome to achieve flow more easily.

Takeaway: You will know how to stick to your priorities more easily, how to say ”no” and how to create (and stick to) a personal plan.
Stress is turning out to be the biggest threat to society. But is it? Having too much stress too often is indeed a problem. But even more problematic is a negative stress belief.

This workshop is completely based on scientific insights, includes some fun facts and will also cover some time management tips.
Takeaway: You will know how to recognise stress and its effects and how to translate stress into more productive reactions, both physically and mentally. In addition, you will know how to support your colleagues by creating an environment where people can grow and perform without risk.
When you ask someone how they are doing, they often state that they are busy. They feel like they have to do a lot but can’t finish their tasks which increases the experience of work pressure. In this workshop, the focus will be on achieving results instead of finishing activities. Also, you will experience the difference between being proactive and being reactive.
Takeaway: This workshop will help you to define why you feel busy and will teach you how to actually create more peace of mind. Even if you have a lot of tasks piling up.

Burnout prevention (for managers)
Burnout is hot and that’s not a good thing. Burnout symptoms are not always obvious to the outside world. Nevertheless, many cases of burnouts can actually be prevented.

Virtual Teams (for managers)
Since the beginning of 2020, virtual working is all of a sudden the new norm. Most of us have been trying really hard to stick with ”normal” ways of working by using technology. We are however forgetting one thing: new times ask for evolution (of ourselves and our environment). This workshop focusses on that evolution and on the creation of your team. In and through a virtual environment.
Takeaway: You will know what makes a great team and how great leaders act in changing times. You will have the skills and knowledge to create and evolve teams anywhere, especially virtually, as we will focus on practical steps for digital teams.
