Feel Better, Think Better - Mindfulness and Meetings

Sitting in a conference all day can be a tough task. Loss of focus, sleepiness, disengagement are all common for attendees.

With so much important information attempting to be disseminated, are there some physical strategies that can be implemented to help? This session takes a look at what goes into keeping an audience engaged through the lens of health, fitness, and wellness.

Topics Include:

Topic 1: Blood Flow & Circulation – you always hear the term, “get the blood flowing.” Take a look at how blood flow and circulation play a role in attentiveness, and how you can continue to get the blood flowing throughout an entire workshop.

Topic 2: Joint Mobility – we live in a world where stiff backs, tight necks, and “bad knees” are very prevalent in today’s society. Add a full day of sitting on top of this and they will be in for a painful experience – literally. Learn what body parts to focus on and implement specific drills to provide relief and energy to the areas.

Topic 3: Nourishment – we know what we eat and drink are important to our overall energy levels and attentiveness. You’ll receive some recommendations on how you can maximize your meeting spaces, organize breaks and lunch, and use nutrition as fuel to keep the energy up.

Learner Objectives:

  • How does sitting affect our physiology
  • What and how to mobilize certain parts of the body to maximize focus and concentration
  • Nutritional strategies to optimize an audience’s engagement
  • Best practices to organize a workshop day
