Incorporating mindfulness, yoga, and emotional intelligence, Morgan imparts useful tools for managing stress and leading a healthier life – physically, mentally, and spiritually.

    Daily Reset Break

    Attendees can take mindful control of their daily lives using easy optimistic ways to reduce stress and increase productivity

    Employers and workers alike want to solve the problem of stress in the workplace, and expensive solutions abound. But did you also know that fewer than 10% of workers take advantage of corporate wellness programs?

    Tessa Todd Morgan offers simple tools that can help anyone to manage daily stress in minutes, providing anyone in attendance with the ability to re-energize and re-center themselves with a DAILY RESET BREAK. This allows them to reboot their bodies, minds and spirits to be more productive and, most importantly, be well.

    In this interactive presentation focused on the practice of a few simple mindfulness techniques, attendees will learn to:

    - Fight fatigue and enhance focus at work and at home
    - Become more optimistic
    - Reduce stress, increase creativity, and be more productive
    - Recognize and manage “trigger moments” using emotional intelligence techniques
    - Minimize afternoon crashes and cravings
    - Ignore the distractions that face everyone in a screen-centric world
    - Kick start a healthy mindset in order to maximize energy
    - Relearn the ability to be present in the moment in order to cope with daily stresses

    Along with the speech, Tessa can guide the audience through breathing exercises and light stretching to demonstrate techniques that can be used anytime, anywhere. The science behind the use of breathing exercises will illuminate how oxygen benefits both sides of the brain, freeing the logical and creative nerve centers to work together effectively, and both relaxing and energizing the body. Light stretching and yoga poses can easily be done in business attire, underscoring the benefits of the mind and body connection.

    Find Your Triessence

    A three-part, personal growth plan for leaders or individual contributors

    Personal growth, empowerment and the ability to live up to our full potential are all things we desire for ourselves. Often, however, the barriers to fulfilling those desires are self-created, either actively, or through channels of which we are completely unaware.

    This program is designed to give attendees the ability to recognize and eliminate both active and passive self-sabotage, re-ignite their professional passion, and identify action steps for achieving the goals in life that they want to accomplish by using optimism and mindfulness.

    TRIESSENCE: /trī/esəns/ (noun) The perfect balance between the three elements of your true essence – physical, mental and spiritual. Aligning these three states results in happiness, fulfilling relationships, health, success, love and joy.

    After many years of training and working with business leaders, yogis, entrepreneurs, celebrities, management experts, and countless people searching for what is missing in their lives, Tessa has learned the importance of true balance—and how to achieve it.

    In this program, Tessa shares the tools and techniques she has learned along her journey in finding true joy and fulfillment in her life, ending self-sabotage, and pursuing personal and professional growth. Through personal anecdotes and professional research, Tessa covers all three areas of critical attention with light-hearted grace.

    Through the use of specific, mindful tactics, attendees will learn how to:
    – Recognize and eliminate instances of self-sabotage
    – Identify relationships, behaviors and beliefs that are not serving attendees well
    – Make new decisions in order to live out your greatness you were born to be!

    Attendees of this program will learn that they are capable of amazing things, but are also capable of subconsciously limiting their own successes. Tessa helps audiences to realize where their lives have potential for nurturing, and then gives them to tools to find results quickly.

    “After reading the reviews and visiting the Triessence website I reached out to Tessa to hire her for 3 yoga sessions at our women’s retreat held in Argyle. Wow!! I can’t imagine a better experience. Tessa was so wonderful and engaging with each of the attendees, modifying to their needs and limitations beautifully. The practice was excellent and she was prepared and professional to a T. The yoga sessions were a huge hit and we are planning to book her again for next year and future events. We are interested in her as a guest speaker as well to experience more of the Triessence balance. What a gem of a find!! I only wish she was here in Fort Worth so I could attend her sessions more often.”
    – Jennifer Nelson – Administrative Assistant for Adult Education and Outreach Ministries, Broadway Baptist Church

    “As the chair of the IASB Annual Meeting for 2015 in New Orleans, we had a unique challenge to help our attendees find new and unique ways to evolve the way they do business every day. Bringing in Tessa Todd Morgan to conduct her Reset Breaks, interspersed throughout our conference, were integral to the success of that learning process. Not only did the breaks help us to think about the stress and tension in our everyday (and conference) work habits in a new way, but they helped us keep our learning quotients high and our minds open and receptive to all the new materials we were being presented with. I highly recommend Tessa’s programs, particularly if you have content rich programs and highly driven audiences.”
    – Lisa Carnemolla Comerford – 2015 IASB Convention Committee Chair

    “Tessa’s approach to appreciating where you are in the moment during our reset break taught me how to regain power when I’m feeling overwhelmed! I highly recommend Tessa for teaching the steps to success whether at work, in a relationship or learning how to reset your mind to get the results you want.”
    – Kim Barnes – Senior Managing Partner, J. Hilburn

    “I will have to admit, I wondered what sort of workout I would get in a “corporate” setting. I assumed the whole thing would be dumbed-down. I was most assuredly wrong. Tessa led a thoughtful class for 45 different levels of participants! I was happily achy the following day, and have felt encouraged to begin again my love/hate relationship with yoga.”
    – Kate Miner – Music Director, Munger Place Church UMC
