Episode 155: “How Stressed Are You?” w/Dr. Ken Keis Ph.D.

In this week’s episode, Tracy speaks with Dr. Ken Keis in this episode titled “How Stressed Are You?”

Ken states that over 90% of all illnesses are lifestyle-related and over 50% of the global workforce is highly stressed.” Ken goes on to say that in farming, that 50% of the “workforce” being highly stressed would be dramatically higher.

So just how stressed are you?

In this episode, Tracy and Ken chat about:
  • The latest research on what stress costs us in lost productivity and quality of life.
  • Ken shares some alarming insight into just how much impact stress is having on us.
  • He shares some wellness improvement and stress reduction tips.
  • Through Ken’s research and body of work, he has developed three tools to help individuals to improve their overall health and wellness. He shares more about his excellent books and courses with our audience.

Gallup research confirmed that nearly 90% of employees are indifferent or actively disengaged at work. Less than 10% of the population believes that they are living a fulfilling life On Purpose! These are disturbing statistics. That means there is a 9 out of 10 chance that you are one of these unfulfilled individuals—would you like to change that?

The Quest For Purpose is a roadmap for assisting individuals to live a life full of meaning, significance, and purpose!
