Denise Marek is a television personality and professional speaker. Known as the Worry Management Expert, she has helped thousands of individuals across North America — from Vancouver, British Columbia to Miami, Florida — to transform their feelings of inner worry into feelings of inner peace.

Specializing in worry management and risk taking, Denise Marek hit the public speaking circuit full-time in 1997. Over the past seven years, the topic that has clearly generated the highest corporate and public interest is From Worrier to Warrior. Toyota, Buffett-Taylor, The Learning Annex, Canadian Tire, Canada Customs and Revenue Agency, Industry Canada, TD Canada Trust and RBC Royal Bank, are among the many corporations and professional groups that have hired Denise Marek specifically to present this topic.

In June, 2001, From Worrier to Warrior earned Denise the Toastmasters International Accredited Speaker Award for Professionalism and Outstanding Achievement in Public Speaking. Toastmasters International created the Accredited Speaker Program in 1981 as a way to recognize individuals whose public speaking skills are of the highest professional caliber. Since its inception, only 49 individuals worldwide (of the more than 175,000 members) have received this Accredited Speaker designation.

In addition to a full speaking schedule, Denise is a television talk-show host on the Life by Design Edition of First Take Live on Channel 12 CHEX TV Durham. Airing each Thursday, First Take Live is entering an impressive seventh season and is Durham region’s number one live talk show. Each week Denise explores life issues with guests, discussing strategies for letting go of worry, coping with stress, gaining balance, and finding pleasure and satisfaction in life.
Never before has it been more important for us to learn how to deal with worry…
The Anxiety Disorders Association of America estimates that more than 4 million Americans between the ages of 18 and 54 suffer from chronic worry. Economic struggles, work stress, relationship breakdowns, health concerns, time constraints and more have added to our worry and anxiety.

Experts suggest one of the results of this stress and worry is a staggering increase in the amount of antidepressants prescribed each year. As reported in The New York Times (by Roni Caryn Rabin, August 2013), “Over the past two decades, the use of antidepressants has skyrocketed. One in 10 Americans now takes an antidepressant medication; among women in their 40s and 50s, the figure is one in four.”

All of this worry comes at an extremely high cost…
The sufferer pays physical and emotional tolls and employers pay tremendous financial tolls, such as decreased productivity and increased downtime. The physical toll that anxiety places on our bodies often causes worriers to miss more work than other employees. Stress caused by worry has been known to contribute to hypertension, heart attacks, diabetes, ulcers, back pain, headaches, and strokes. In addition, worry can cause the body to store fat. Researchers have found that worry causes an increase in the body’s level of the hormone cortisol. The elevated level of cortisol causes the body to increase fat storage in the abdominal area. Excess fat in the abdominal area can lead to heart disease and breast cancer.
