5 Ways to Incorporate Wellness Into Your Next Meeting
Meeting planners, executives and attendees alike expect more from meetings and corporate events than ever before. Today, health and wellness has become an essential component of any successful program. To help you plan your next meeting, we’ve compiled five pointers to elevate your event to the status of a wellness meeting.
Location, Location, Location
An inspiring environment fuels creativity, encourages engagement, and prompts physical activity. This means the choice of a host venue requires more than just meeting space and hotel room selections.
The Garden of the Gods Resort and Club, situated at the base of Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs, offers an ideal location with awe-inspiring views, flexible meeting space, and an on-site wellness center – Strata Integrated Wellness Spa. This perfect combination nurtures the meeting experience by allowing attendees to get down to business, get back on track, and refresh and recharge for the next presentation.
Food for Fuel
Healthier meal choices are proven to increase concentration, and options such as a superfood smoothie or chia seed pudding instead of a pastry snack will keep attendees energized throughout the day. Ditch the sodas and offer coconut water! Utilize locally produced products that spotlight your host city. And the evening following a long meeting day is the perfect time to splurge a with a themed dinner they won’t soon forget.

Weave Wellness into the Fabric of Your Event
Travel can be stressful, and it’s easy for attendees to take on a stuffed schedule with little time to themselves to take a breath. Try to allow everyone an opportunity to partake in the wellness options available, including sunrises hikes, morning yoga, or meditation sessions before the presentations start.
From the Tiniest Acorns, the Biggest Trees Grow
Wellness can also be found in the details, taking such considerations into account as onsite recycling, lighting, and the temperature of meeting rooms. It’s also important to keep duration to a tolerable period — try scheduling your presentations for 50 minutes followed by a 10-minute window, allowing attendees to get up and moving.
