Unplug for better work together

Less than 10 minutes a day to recharge individuals and engage teams.  Measurable impact for you, your team, and your business. 

"I teach employees the power of pause to reduce distractions and improve outcomes, in less than 10 minutes a day."

-Elizabeth Holmstrom
Founder & Director

Most employer health and wellness programs are focused on physical health.

It's time to focus on emotional health. Workloads are the leading cause of employee stress. We need to teach employees how to manage their work.

Scientific evidence supports the power of unplugged breaks to reduce stress and achieve the highest productivity.

My simple methods result in measurable outcomes.

Our brains require unplugged time to thrive and it begins with leadership.

Improve Your Meetings

Meetings are the most expensive time funded by most companies, yet people tell me most meetings they attend are not a valuable use of their time. Some people are in meetings for 8 to 10 hours a day, particularly middle management.

We can improve your meetings in 10 minutes with simple unplugged activities to engage people at the start, and guidelines for effective facilitation and follow-up.

The Art of The Break Podcast

Even with the most sophisticated tools at our fingertips, most of us are not spending time or effort to teach people how to manage increasing workloads, which is one of the leading causes of employee stress.
