Opening Keynote - Dr. Romie Mushtaq
brainSHIFT: Break the Stress-Success Cycle
Modern leaders and employees get stuck in the stress–success cycle where we work too hard, stress, obsesses, and worry on our way to achieving goals – then once we achieve them, we just go right back into the cycle again. Being stuck in the stress-success cycles leads to symptoms of difficulty focusing, racing thoughts before bed, anxiousness, and poor emotional control. The brainSHIFT protocol creates a POWERbrain state in which we break the stress-success cycle, find focus, boost memory, productivity, & foster emotional resilience. Dr. Romie’s keynote brings together the latest research in neurology, integrative medicine and mindfulness to give practical strategies to create a brainSHIFT for your personal and organizational health.
