Judy Martin is a work-stress management consultant who works with clients across all professional sectors to help them transform and channel stress toward creativity and innovation. She chats with Ramona about how people manage their lives as technology blurs the line between home and work life.
In a new world of work, connectivity is both a blessing and a challenging technological conundrum. And Judy knows a lot about that as an Emmy® award-winning broadcast journalist who focuses on business news, workplace culture and stress management at work and in business.
As the founder of WorkLifeNation.com, a site dedicated to transforming stress in an “always-on” world, Judy is championing the evolution of a new workplace culture concerned with employee well-being, engagement, productivity, innovation and creativity.
Judy has facilitated stress management and work-life resilience workshops for numerous companies and organizations including: UJA-Federation, Motorola, Orange/Rockland Utilities, Right Management, American Cancer Society, Hofstra University, National Association of Mothers’ Centers, NYS Home Healthcare Providers, Daniel Gale Real Estate, and the Healthcare Public Relations Society of New York.
For two decades, Judy has tracked business, workplace culture and career trends with an emphasis on work-life balance and stress management strategies. She has contributed to Forbes.com, Marketplace Report, NPR, CNBC Business Radio, World Vision Report, BBC Radio 3, and News 12 Long Island.
Calling on her experience in the frenetic pace of news, and her study of yoga, breath-work and meditation, in 2001 she developed her signature stress management workshop, Practical Chaos: The Four Gates of Transformation. In 2006, she released her first meditation CD, Practical Chaos: Reflections on Resilience. In 2012, Judy was chosen as a Top 10 on-line influencer on “stress” by Sharecare.com, a collaborative effort between Dr. Oz and WebMD. She has been a student of meditation for more than 30 years.
Judy received her yoga teacher’s accreditation in eclectic Hatha Yoga under Mokshapriya Shakti of the Yoga Teachers Training Institute in New York. She is also a certified Hospice volunteer. Her work is influenced by her mentors: Vassar College Asian Studies Professor and Career Sociologist Rick Jarow, Ph.D., mind/body expert Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., Deepak Chopra, and work-life pioneer Matthew Fox.
