Topics for Michele Chevalley Hedge

  • Lifestyle of leaders
    Successful leaders understand that leadership in any form is not an event, it’s a process. The most successful leaders understand that success is cultivated, tweaked, and begins with their own physical and mental health. Quality leaders have daily commitments to their wellbeing, and those commitments are nourishing, not punishing. To stand out as a leader, you must create the habits that back your success, communication skills, cognitive function, energy, and good reputation. Once these habits become a part of your daily routine, you set yourself up to be well on your way to becoming the leader of your own success and in the helping of others to achieve theirs. Join Michele Chevalley Hedge, nutritional medicine practitioner, international author for an evidence-based, yet humorous presentation on wellbeing. This presentation was the very talk that led Michele to be a guest a Richard Branson’s home on Nectar Island with 20 global leaders, The Leadership Summit, in February this year.
  • MoodFood- How diet affects mental health & wellbeing
    Do you know anyone who goes from gorgeous to grumpy in one meal? Energised to Brain Fogged? Communitive and a team player to silent and introverted? Mood disorders and poor brain fitness to the more serious anxiety and depression are surrounding us. They may silent, always scary, and often caused by things we cannot control- genetics, virus, childhood trauma, and more. But now with recent evidence-based research we know that food can play a part in our current mental wellbeing crisis. We want to be productive, energised, and have top mental fitness not just in our careers but also when we get home our families. Michele Chevalley Hedge, nutritionist and Australia Mental Health Finalist will share with you her evidence-based research on nutrition, mental health, wellbeing, and its connection to food.
    Mental Health is serious topic and Michele delivers it in a light fashion with real achievable take home messages.
  • The itsy bitsy habits of wellbeing & mental resilience
    People change best by feeling good, not feeling bad. If we consistently can do a habit without pain or bother, we have found the way to cement micro-steps that improve vitality, energy, sleep, mental resilience and more. Successful people keep their wellbeing personal tool kit simple and do-able and always begin with small steps. In these uncertain times, there are so many things we cannot control but the one thing we can control is how we nourish ourselves. How we nourish ourselves has the immediate knock-on effect to our all of the things we truly value- our mental, physical and emotional health.
  • Health equity, the new economy
    The evidence and research on how we nourish ourselves and how it affects our immune system and overall wellbeing has always been important especially when we are under stress or in challenging times. There has never been a time that we need to complete wellbeing as we transition into new work environments- from home or the office.
    A vibrant brain and healthy body are without the new form of wealth – so how do you grow yours? The evidence and research on how we nourish ourselves and how it affects our immune system, motivation, mental health, and mental resilience has always been important, especially when we are under stress, or in challenging times. There has never been a time that we need complete wellbeing more than now, as we transition into new work environments — from home or office and avoiding burnout.

I attended Michele Chevalley Hedge’s talk titled ‘Energy, Vitality, and Happy Hormones - It’s all in your food’ at the World Positive Education summit in Texas.  The title intrigued me because I strongly believe that nutrition has a huge impact on well-being.  The talk was amazing Michele’s energetic style and clear messages on the importance of nutrition inspired me to ask her to speak to my leadership team in our company in Australia and now we have partnered with Michele  to fill a missing link in our holistic well-being program.

Mental Health, emotional well-being and clarity of thinking are in my view all enhanced by a low sugar lifestyle.  As a family, we’ve kicked the habit (not hard) and its awesome!   The science is all moving in this direction. For our own sake and the sake of future generations we need to address the “sugar” epidemic in all its manifestations. Michele and her team know what they’re about and practise what they preach. Bravo!

When I was in the thick of my depression, I found that bad habits were easy to slip into and good ones easy to excuse away. Food was definitely a big part of this equation. Quick fix food felt great for a moment but pretty soon zapped me of energy, made it harder to concentrate, and overall contributed to a feeling of heading in the wrong direction. I LOVE Michele Chevalley Hedge's approach to realistically eating well! We’re not robots and our diets don’t have to be perfect and boring. Small changes can lead to big positive things.

I approached Michele Chevalley Hedge at A Healthy View after watching her speak at several other educational events earlier in the year and I hoped she would be available to address the delegates at The School Nurses Association of NSW 17th Annual Conference in September 2016.

I was not disappointed, and neither were the 150 nurse delegates at the conference as they listened to Michele educate them regarding maintaining their own health and energy levels through a healthy balanced diet in order to look after the physical and mental health needs of the students in schools in which they work.

Michele is energetic, vital and a living example of the end result of a well-balanced diet and lifestyle. She inspired us with her motivation and encouraged all to make healthy choices and project this message to the students in our care. Nurses commented that Michele was invigorating and encouraging.  Her presentation was entertaining and interesting providing useful strategies for delegates and those under their care.
