Change Your Mind, Change Your Health, Change Your Life
How often do you go to a meeting or conference and find yourself tossing your healthy routine out the window? Too much food, too much alcohol and not enough exercise or sleep magically becomes the norm at meetings. Making healthier choices on the road, particularly choosing to make time for exercise, mindfulness and healthier food choices can impact your productivity, your memory and your mood.
Fitness can be the catalyst for living your best life. The act of working hard to achieve goals can be a lesson for all areas of your life. The brain changes for the better when the body works. Happiness takes work – sometimes that work requires just putting one foot in front of the other.
This three-part session is geared toward meeting professionals (planners and suppliers) to help them adopt healthy behaviors at home and while traveling for work. Led by industry professionals with certifications in health and fitness, this program is taught from experience and with the audience in mind.
- Food is not just fuel – learn the impact on cognitive performance and emotional state
- Better choices lead to improved memory, enhanced mood and increased productivity
- Choose This, Not That – how to choose healthy options at home and on the road
- Priority, Preparation and Planning – No matter how busy you are, you can turn fitness into an everyday lifestyle.
- No Gym, No Weights, No Problem: how to stay fit while you travel
- What is mindfulness and how does it impact your wellness
- How to implement mindfulness and meditation into your daily activities at home or while you travel
