Recharge and restore your energy while improving your ability to react more thoughtfully to challenges, worries and conflict.
A practice of mindfulness helps us experience joy and happiness while improving focus and concentration. Science proves that practicing mindfulness literally re-wires our brains, helping us cope with everyday distractions and stress.
Melanie Carvell inspires women to take charge of their health with tools to restore energy while improving your ability to cope with stress, conflict and worries.
Melanie is a gifted athlete who grew up in southwestern North Dakota. Her life-long interest in athletics and a career as a physical therapist lead her to become an accomplished six-time All American triathlete, the former director of the Sanford Women's Health Center in Bismarck, ND, a certified Worksite Wellness Consultant, a captivating motivational speaker, and tireless community volunteer.
In 2014, Melanie became an author with the publication of her book Running with the Antelope: Life, Fitness, and Grit on the Northern Plains. The memoir tells of her journey, from the agricultural village of Mott (population 732) to world duathlon and triathlon competitions, to her career as a physical therapist and national speaker. Running with the Antelope is part self-help book, part prairie memoir and part song of love to North Dakota.

What you tell yourself, in every moment, every day can lift you up or tear you down. It is a practice.
Do you practice love or loathing?
Only you get to choose to practice love and take care of the sweet, perfect vesicle that is the sum of you: your body, mind and spirit.
We know you know how to do it. Sometimes it’s helpful to be reminded.
Each moment, we get to make choices about food, movement, breath, sources of inspiration, and our reactions to circumstances. Each choice, simple or challenging, is a tiny step along an individual health journey. Women are welcome to pause along their way and spend a day focused on little steps that make a big difference in their well-being.
Are you ready? Join us for a transforming day. Hundreds of women will laugh, learn, share, and participate in information and activities to help us practice self-care, positive self-talk, manage stress and excel at how we control our actions.
