And here are 9 of his tips for incorporating wellness into the physical, social, spiritual, financial, environmental and nutritional aspects of your event:

  • Include a brief meditation session.
  • Provide a focused breathing break.
  • Get them out in nature — or, if that’s not realistic for your event, bring natural elements into the meeting space.
  • Extend the fitness center hours so attendees can get a workout in on their own time without having to skip any sessions.
  • Hold fun walk/runs, scavenger hunts or other activities that will get attendees’ blood flowing.
  • Hold a fitness competition, such as who can fit in the most steps over the course of the event.
  • Plan meals that contain protein, iron, iodine, and micronutrients such as fatty acids, vitamins and minerals — all of which are proven to help improve learning. Fish, especially salmon, sardines and canned tuna, is a good protein choice because it tends to be high in brain-development aides such as Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin B12, choline and selenium.
  • Include berries (blueberries, strawberries and blackberries are all great choices), along with citrus fruits, nuts and avocados.
  • Give the choco-holics their drug of choice, but make sure it is dark chocolate, which has been shown to reduce mental fatigue as well as boost memory.
