Is your name really Comfort?

Yes. I love getting people upside down (or otherwise outside of their "comfort zone"). 

However, when I teach nervous system management these days, I call the "Safe & Social" parasympathetic mode the "Comfort Zone." And our health is related to how much time we spend there, versus Fight/Flight or Freeze. 

Why do you focus on wellness?

Two reasons: 1) We must bring out best selves to this world-changing work, the corporate world gets it, why don't nonprofits?  2) Supporting physical and mental health at work builds better teams. 

Where and how does this all happen?

  • Trainings: In-person or Zoom w/ breakout rooms (under 20), highly interactive
  • Coaching: One-on-one, via in-person, phone, or Hangout/Skype/Zoom
  • Webinar: one-way comms, can be customized, is only somewhat interactive 
  • Consulting: Customized organizational development or expert pair of hands 
  • Speaking & conferences: Lunchtime or keynote addresses

Stress "score when you walk in the door"

If emotional stress really causes 2/3 of health problems...

...we need to deal with stress better. We are all humans, with bodies, and emotions, and a nervous system, and a need for food and sleep.


We humans have a lot in common! When we discuss these similarities (and differences) of how we take care of our bodies, and our central nervous systems, we develop empathy and trust for each other. 

That's why equity conversations in context of wellness are the best kind to have. 

You are NOT having an equity conversation centered on the past, or about how privileged one group is, or any of the other paths these discussions lead to. You ARE having a conversation about how a diverse group of humans support each other in managing their central nervous systems more effectively and bringing their best physical and mental selves to work. It's team-care, not (just) self-care.  

Get Comfortable

You can improve your work culture today. 

Schedule Susan for the TAKE FIVE talk ("Building 5-minute Brain Breaks for Productivity & Joy") or, the new "7 Social Stress Solutions." 

Teams can use the Stressor Scorecard to have a conversation about the relative stressors in their lives.

Outlive the Bastards

“One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. ... Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards.”
Edward Abbey
