Marie-Josée Shaar, MAPP 2007, wants to reverse the current epidemics in sleep deprivation, obesity, depression and physical inactivity. After a first career in the fast-paced corporate world, she founded Smarts and Stamina to help others adopt and maintain healthier lifestyles. Through research, coaching and teaching, she developed a model that is highly customizable, effective, and that limits the amount of self-discipline needed to achieve success.
She speaks on the topics of energy and stress management, productivity, as well as sleep, food, mood, and exercise habits. Her clients, colleagues and training participants find that her joyful energy brings out their own strengths and positivity. Her book co-written with Kathryn Britton, MAPP, is titled Smarts and Stamina: The Busy Person’s Guide to Optimal Health and Performance, and offers 50 well-researched avenues to health improvement.
Her favorite quotation: “Be the change you want to see in the world” (Gandhi).
