“I incorporate wellness into my events by doing several things: having ‘breathing’ breaks, as there are many breathing apps to choose from; incorporating doTerra therapeutic essential oils available on cloths for a ‘sensory’ break; deliberately choosing food and beverage that encourage energy and alertness (with a little fun from sweets); using food and beverage to educate on the savory tasty choices that veggies and other healthy dishes bring; planning activities that encourage simple walking or movement; and including a stretch or gentle yoga classes in the morning and evening.” —Dianne Devitt, owner of DND Group
