BEHAVIORIST HELPS WOMEN REDUCE STRESS
BISMARCK - Colette Carlson, a human behavior expert and author from California, will speak to 400 women on September 30 at the Women’s Health Conference in Bismarck formerly known as Mikey Hoeven’s Women’s Wellness Expo.
“Behavior modification teaches us that we repeat behavior that makes us feel good,” says Carlson, visiting motivational speaker who inspires audiences around the country with humor and the power of speaking their truth. “Until the goal becomes larger than the payoff, you’re always going to choose feeling good over feeling uncomfortable.”
Like many women who are looking to change, Carlson is someone who learned her own message the hard way. Only by telling the truth on herself, combined with her hunger for personal development was Carlson able to overcome her own fears and addictions that kept her 50 lbs. overweight and making underwhelming choices.
During the Women’s Health Conference, Carlson will teach attendees to stress less by eliminating unrealistic expectations of themselves and their world. Carlson continues, “What’s your payoff for not changing? Until you can get real, and speak your truth, you’ll never be able to stick with your plan.” Because she is willing to make great fun of herself, Carlson invites Women’s Health Conference attendees to take a heartfelt, humorous look into their lives to bring about the self-awareness that begins all long-lasting change.
“Women need to take time to reaffirm the need to take care of themselves.” says Anita Hoffarth, member of the Women’s Health Conference advisory committee. She continues, “Stress is a big part of women’s lives, learning how to reduce stress has a lasting impact on our health.”
Carlson shares her expertise at the Women’s Health Conference on September 30, 2013 in Bismarck, North Dakota. The conference features practical motivation to help women grow their personal health.
