Going Zen From 9 to 5
Published Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Marianne Clyde, author, relationship expert and advocate for strong mental health in the workplace, has written a new book, Zentivity: How to Eliminate Chaos, Stress, and Discontent in Your Workplace. A licensed marriage and family therapist, Clyde has spent the last 27 years helping people get rid of unhealthy thought and behavior patterns that keep them stuck in low productivity and unsatisfactory results.

According to National Alliance on Mental Illness, 43.8 million adults in the United States experience mental illness in any given year. The fallout in the workplace is extensive, costing employers an estimated $225.8 billion dollars.

Dr. David Ballard, head of the Center for Organizational Excellence, says that employers who understand the link between employee wellbeing and organizational performance are best positioned for success in the economic recovery.

What does that mean to you, the business leader? It means that if you could find a way to help your employees and business associates find a place of better mental clarity and stability that job performance would increase right along with your bottom line.

In her new book, Clyde teaches "10 Essential Principles" for finding a strong internal locus of control instead of continuing to be thrown off balance by circumstances and external stimuli. Equipping leaders to set an example of strong mental health in the workplace, and to recognize when others might be struggling, Clyde lays out practical steps, guiding business managers and their employees toward establishing strong mental health in the workplace.

“Marianne Clyde has put together a clear picture of the modern work life and its stresses that tear at the fabric of our work places. The tools she shares to achieve Zentivity are fantastic, practical methods to help both employees and employers find balance, and improve their lives and productivity," said Lantie Jorandby, MD, general and addiction psychiatrist at the Amen Clinics Inc. in Washington, DC.

After launching two best-selling books, Peaceful Parenting: 10 Essential Principles and Un-Leashed: Practical Steps to Get Your Life Unstuck, she has now released Zentivity: How to Eliminate Chaos, Stress and Discontent in Your Workplace. As chaos, reactivity and polarization reign, whether your workplace is in politics, business or home, she recognizes and advocates for mental health in the workplace. A companion website is available along with the book at www.zentivity.guru to help readers establish strong new patterns of throught and behavior.

Clyde is also the founder of the Marianne Clyde Center for Holistic Psychotherapy, in Warrenton, VA, winner of the 2017 Best of Warrenton award, and also the founder of Be the Change Foundation, helping underprivileged women create and sustain home-based businesses.
