DNA of Living a Well-Balanced Life & How I Learned to Skillfully Juggle the Things that Matter to me

Anne Bisson demonstrates that what you need to do to live a happy and well-balanced life without compromising the success of your career is to: COMPARTMENTALIZE! This means, basically, that when you come home from work, yes, your body arrives, but so does your mind. The fundamental problem with this is that over the years we have learned to set up two compartments: one for work and one for family. Anne shows us that in order to attain a richer quality of life, to be able to be more present with our spouse, our children, our boss, it is absolutely necessary to create a third compartment, this one for ourselves! So we now have three boxes. As we said, one for work and one for family, and the third one she calls the ‘Me’ box. What goes into the ‘Me’ box? What is important to you about your own ‘Me’? What are your values when it comes to your ‘Me’? Anne will help you find out during her talk. Anne will also give you the tools to better manage your time on a daily basis amongst those three compartments, i.e. Work, Family and ‘Me’. For example, how to better enjoy dinner with the whole family, how to efficiently set aside time for more personal projects, and so on. Anne then wraps things up with an exercise called the Full Consciousness Meditation Technique, that can be done alone, with a partner, or even with the whole family. An exercise where you close your eyes and imagine what your life can be like, now that you have established that ‘Me’ space and can better take care of yourself. This conference is aimed at everyone who is not afraid to change their way of life in order to be able to devote more quality time to the people around them. Your spouse will be happier, your children will thank you and your boss will be in seventh heaven! “All aboard the S.S. New Way of Life, where ‘Being’ and not ‘Doing’ is the order of the day!”

SHE'S BEEN CALLED DYNAMIC AND INSPIRING! When she's asked 'Where does all that positive energy come from?' She answers candidly and with a smile, 'It must be in my genes, my DNA!'In 1990, while she was a musician on a Radio-Canada television series called 'Vazimolo', she was invited... Read More →
