Many people like you who have been chronically burning the candle at both ends have tried to achieve freedom, vitality and peace of mind...

And yet, you continue to push through the exhaustion, unable to relax or let go.

I want you to know, that you can increase your energy and regain control of your life. 

Everyone who’s ever dealt with stress and anxiety knows there are tools that can help, when used in the right way. You may even be familiar with some of them if you’ve sought out help before, yet you still find yourself struggling.

I know it can feel frustrating … and even hopeless sometimes.

Even though you’re tired and have worked so hard, you’re not going to give up. While you don’t yet know why you’re still having trouble sleeping, can’t seem to stop worrying, and are walking through life feeling like a clenched fist, you continue to remain hopeful that you’ll find a way out.

Sometimes it feels like you’ve made some progress, or that things are finally going in the right direction, only to find yourself repeating the same patterns and feeling stuck over and over again.

Chronic overwork is rampant in North America, and people are under enormous pressure to achieve and give more and more while neglecting their own needs. Chances are, this is happening to you. You’ve tried so hard to remain hopeful and persevere, but each time you end up feeling deflated. When you have stretched yourself too thin for too long, burnout is the result.

It’s frustrating. It’s humiliating. It’s exhausting. And sometimes it feels like no matter how many times you pick yourself up, you’re just never going to restore your balance and regain your well-being.

I’m here to reassure you that you’re not alone. 

I also want you to know that it's not your fault that you keep repeating these same cycles.
You see, the reason why you haven't been able to overcome the stress and anxiety that holds you back is because you haven't been able to identify the internal patterns that keep you stuck. It's natural that we look to the world outside of ourselves for answers.

But the truth is, that everything you need to break free of these patterns and create the life you want, is inside of you.

If you knew what internal patterns were holding you back, you'd finally be able to make the changes you're longing for.

Wouldn't that feel amazing?
We weren’t born with a natural ability to see ourselves and our patterns clearly. Most of us have a hard time learning to do this—to identify our stressors and the patterns keeping us stuck, and to know what to do to get out of it and create the life we’ve been dreaming of.

Few of us can do this alone, and we shouldn’t have to.

So, it’s no wonder that you’ve been struggling all this time and feeling like a failure. It’s no wonder you’ve been so stuck and haven’t been able to reach your goals. Everyone else makes it look so easy, while you’ve struggled all on your own.

Until now, that is...

Maryanne's RESTORE YOUR BALANCE course has been a GAME CHANGER for my busy life! I was burned out running my own business, not making time for self care, I kept throwing out my back from working too many hours at my desk and I knew something needed to change. Signing up for the course was easy, and I loved how the course came in weekly sessions, so I wasn't overwhelmed with information all at once and that I could take my time to go through it all. It was nice to have the videos, to see a friendly face as I was learning how to improve and recover from my stress and anxiety. Thank you so much for making this course Maryanne, it really has made my life more manageable and enjoyable.

RESTORE YOUR BALANCE was more than I could have expected. I learned things about stress and how it was affecting my life in ways I did not even realize. I was burnt-out, overwhelmed and did not fully understand how I got there. And I had no idea how to get out of it. This course helped me to gradually understand this and it showed me that I do not have to stay burnt-out and overwhelmed. (I learned) that there are ways in which I can support myself to stay empowered in my life and ultimately (feel) joyful. What I truly enjoyed was that I could complete the modules on my own terms, at my own speed. This allowed me to not feel overwhelmed in this process. I would recommend RESTORE YOUR BALANCE to anyone who feels stressed, anxious and overwhelmed and is unsure about how to fix it.

Anyone suffering from stress can benefit greatly from this easy-to-use workshop. Maryanne takes you by the hand and walks you down a path that educates you on the impact of stress in your life and offers tools to help you take ownership of your own health and well-being leaving you feeling lighter, healthier and happier.

Richard Ausar Stewart, Director, Free Your Voice

Like so many of us, I lead an overly busy life—a combination of work, family and personal commitments had combined to leave me feeling overwhelmed and confused. On the one hand I felt fortunate to have such a full life and on the other I just wanted to run away from the whole thing. RESTORE YOUR BALANCE has helped me make some sense of this conundrum and put me on the path to taking back control of my life.

Clare Brown, Accountant

I found the workshop to be both effective and rewarding. I think many people experience stress but not many really understand the impact it has on their lives—me included. As I went through the workshop, I understand how stress works in my life; I began to feel my body in a way I’ve never felt before, and I’ve developed daily routines that support me in living free of unnecessary stress.  As a result, I recommend this course to a lot of people I know.

Brian Nicholls, Social Case Worker

I found Maryanne’s RESTORE YOUR BALANCE course extremely helpful. It really helped me to understand the process of stress, and that once it begins, it's natural and not really something I can control. In fact, I was both relieved and a bit nervous over how relatable the material was to my life, and that so many aspects applied to me. Nervous, because it was surprising how many things I thought were caused by something other than stress, that were really all about stress! Relieved, because it helped me understand how I was causing this, and that I could do something effective about it. I really related to this workshop. In fact, I am surprised it doesn’t cost more than it does.

    Module 1 | Introduction

    Introduction to the physics of stress and anxiety: You will learn in detail what stress is and what it does, and how our brain and nervous system get triggered. We will examine the results of stress, PTSD and burnout with a focus on looking at the way back—Resilience.

    Module 2 | Breathing

    In this module we will look at the critical role breathing has in de-stressing and rebalancing. Learning to regulate and focus your attention on your breathing is one the simplest and most effective strategies for stress relief. Discover how breathing can be your anchor in daily life.

    Module 3 | Making Space

    Dealing with the chaos created by stress and anxiety is often experienced as running out of time and space. When we are stressed we are always focussed on the future and have no place for the present. In this module we explore the importance of making space both externally and internally, offering you resources you need to deal with stress.

    Module 4 | Eating

    Eating, nourishment, emotional eating: Keeping stress at bay means taking time to properly nourish yourself, both physically and mentally. Knowing how to nourish yourself can help you approach everyday tasks with a sense of calm and joy allowing greater ease and fulfilment.

    Module 5 | Self-Care

    Beginning the road back to living balanced through self-care: Many people think of stress as simply an emotional issue, but how you take care of your body dramatically affects your stress levels. Self-care is about resources—the one thing the chronically stressed ignore. In Module 5, you’ll learn powerful methods for physical self-care, helping you to keep health and energy high while reducing or eliminating the effects of stress.

    Module 6 | Sleeping

    The critical importance of sleep and sleep cycles including our natural rhythms: Getting a good night’s rest is essential for reducing stress. Sleep’s role in your journey to calm confidence is much greater than that. Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the biggest challenges we have if we’re stressed, and yet it’s essential to life. You'll learn about what sleep and dreams do for you, and how you can get enough of both.

    Module 7 | Re-Connecting

    Much of our stress typically stems from a chronic lack of a sense of connection: Connection to the self, to others, and to our surroundings. We were born to connect; now it’s time to re-connect. In this module we look at how the chaos and disorganization of living stressed and anxious lives can lead to isolation and how it manifests as addiction and addictive tendencies, and we end the session with some re-connection tools.

    Module 8 | Relaxing

    Build resilience into your life, know how to deal effectively with stressful situations, breaking the cycle at last: Relaxation is the goal of your stress-reduction journey. For many of us, relaxation can be difficult to achieve. Relaxing is about developing resilience. In Module 8, we delve into what resilience is about and how you can use it to live stress-free, leaving you with a set of every-day techniques that can help you develop and maintain resilience - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
