It’s a TNT – Time-Numbers-Technology – Driven & Distracted Brave New World, when “Everything Happens NOW.” While some see a half-full glass of unprecedented access and data…others perceive rampant “Infomania” — continuous stress and distraction caused by the combination of message overload, incessant interruptions, and “Time Urgency Syndrome.” Through his Fun-Interactive-Thought-provoking (Get FIT) program, let the Stress Doc help you transform the MA&DD-ness:
Gain tools for 1) assessing individual/digital distractions in the workplace and 2) designing self-monitoring and team building activities for work and strategies for a stress resilient work environment.

It may be time to ask: Is your digital world spinning out of control?
