The nurse practitioners from across the state of Maine were captivated by Dr. Michelle May and her message about nutrition, health, and self-care. And the thought-provoking discussions continued throughout the conference! We have never had a keynote speaker with such great reviews, positive comments, and so many requests to return. She is an engaging and gifted speaker with an important message for health care providers across this country.
Corporate wellness initiatives tend to fall short of expectations and often aren’t effective for creating lasting change.
Too often they reward extrinsic actions and stress weight loss without addressing the intrinsic thoughts and beliefs that drive behaviors.
As a result, despite millions of dollars invested in wellness programs, people experience temporary changes followed by a retreat back to habitual patterns that disrupt their well-being and performance.
Dr. Michelle May shows your teams how to harness the power of mindful well-being to choose mindfully, act responsively, and live vibrantly.
Dr. Michelle May’s proven strategy for a mindful approach to lifestyle behaviors aligns well with our hospital system’s vision of “health care to health.” Dr. May translates science into everyday practices that can improve health with prevention, health protection, and throughout the care continuum for patients, clients, and populations.
As a highly-rated health and wellness keynote speaker, Michelle delivers her crucial and timely message with energy, humor, and insight.
Whether delivering a Mindful Eating experiential workshop for 65 or an inspirational keynote for 6500, her positive and authentic “been there” approach connects with her audiences and transforms how they view well-being, eating, and living.
Even when people are motivated to change, they may continue to repeat automatic patterns, creating undesirable outcomes. Mindfulness creates new opportunities for improved well-being by creating the space to respond instead of re-acting habitually.
Decades of yo-yo dieting have left us feeling guilty, disappointed, and less healthy. This interactive, entertaining keynote turns the old fashioned “eat less, exercise more,” paradigm on its head. Using humor, personal anecdotes, and uncommon insight, Michelle inspires your audience to fuel the vibrant life they crave.
This keynote may also be followed by a guided mindful eating experience.
The goal of patient care is improved health and well-being. However, the current dominant weight-centered paradigm has been shown to be not only ineffective, but harmful. Shifting to weight-inclusive approach encourages optimal care and well-being for individuals along the entire weight spectrum.
In this keynote, Dr. Michelle May will review the evidence and explore specific strategies for supporting the shift to weight-inclusive care, including effectively communicating this approach with colleagues and referring health professionals.
