Tonia Cordi

Storm, fog, chaos.  Life can be like the weather … difficult to navigate and hard to manage at times.  Even when the storms are over and we can see what’s in front of us we’re not always able to identify where we are or what direction we need to go in.  This is where Time + Space Solutions comes in.  Tonia helps people out of the storm and guides them in the direction they want to go – supporting them along the way.

Tonia walks individuals and groups through an integrated process of decluttering and organizing their lives. She identifies personal and/or business intentions, goals and barriers. Next, is minimizing life clutter getting in the way (time, space, digital and mindset) and then organizing what’s left. Lastly,  sustaining changes by shifting habits, beliefs and lifestyle.  This process balances both technical strategies and inner reflection bring awareness to barriers and patterns.

Tonia works with individuals and groups on:

  • Mapping out a concrete plan for goals
  • Overcoming barriers to changing habits, routine and lifestyle
  • Clearing clutter in their mind and lives
  • Focusing and maintaining perspective
  • Reframing negative thinking
  • Work life boundaries and harmony

Doodle Lovely

There’s stress… then there’s “Covid” stress.

Employees really deserve a break from stress – we’ve all seen the signs – now the data proves it.  Health Canada estimates 11 million Canadians are experiencing high levels of stress at this time. This means the health and well-being of 1 in 3 of your colleagues is at risk.

Why Doodle Breaks™?

Spontaneous drawing is proven in its ability to engage the frontal lobe – your mind’s supercomputer. This also connects with the relaxation response, the part of the brain that is most effective at dealing with lowering stress, anxiety and overwhelm. This is why I have been facilitating using doodling as part of treatment for PTSD clients.

All this from doodling? I know how it sounds! Something we were scolded for doing at school now turns out to be really productive. Then again, inventors have always been known to doodle. The rhythmic action of doodling not only alleviates stress by producing a chemical response, it also heightens focus. Try doodling during your next conference call, it improves cognitive listening by up to 29%.

That’s why a Doodle Breaks™ is more than just a fun break, it invigorates the mind. In all my experience, it has proven to be the most powerful mindfulness exercise to deal with extreme stress and preventing burnout. Integrate Doodle Breaks™ into your next meeting or event – you will see the difference in your team members energy and focus.

Doodle Breaks™ exercises are designed to concentrate on areas of self-improvement during short breaks from work. Learn to take Doodle Breaks™ at any point of your day, helping you rise to every challenge; stress, burnout and creative thinking!

What are the benefits of Doodle Breaks™?

  • Calms your mind, improves focus
  • Provides clarity and ignites creativity
  • Gives you a happiness boost
  • Reduces stress
  • Helps you sleep better

Energy in Motion:  Understanding physical pain, stuck negative emotions and the power of movement to transform them

Movement is NOT about doing exercise. Movement is about the birthright every individual has, to move in all ways, always. Movement should be fluid and painless, however the demands of our working life and need for income have restricted our bodies and our minds to the point of movement amnesia which results in various forms of pain: physical, mental and emotional. My mission is to spark awareness in the minds of participants and provide a system adequate to their needs, especially in times of challenging restrictions. The purpose of my presentation is for my audience to create rapport with their own body and are enticed to join me for the movement segments.
