Health and Wellness: Balancing Work and Well-Being During Your Meeting

At The Otesaga, we understand the importance of fostering an inspiring environment for meetings and conferences. While productive discussions are key, ensuring the health and wellness of your team is critical to a successful gathering. Read on for some ways to help strike a healthy balance between work and well-being during your next meeting at The Otesaga.

Plan for Wellness

Block time in your agenda for short breaks between sessions. Aim for 5-10 minutes every hour to stretch, grab some water, or take a mindful moment. Encourage attendees to bring reusable water bottles to stay hydrated throughout the day. Or, if your budget permits, provide free water bottles for team members to use. When it comes to the menu for your meeting, include nutritious options to maintain your energy levels. Avoid sugary treats or heavy meals that can lead to a crash later.

Mindful Meeting Participation

Engage fully in the conversation, but avoid multitasking. This allows you to absorb information effectively while reducing mental strain. During longer meetings, take small stretches at your seat or take the stairs during breaks. Even subtle movements can help improve focus and blood flow. If weather permits, suggest a walking meeting or taking a break on our beautiful lakeside grounds. Immersing yourself in nature is a great way to reduce stress and clear your mind

Post-Meeting Recharge

Allow yourself time to unwind after a productive day. This could involve a relaxing spa treatment at Hawkeye Spa, enjoying a scenic walk along Otsego Lake, or sitting in one of our rocking chairs on the veranda, with the best seat in the house for scenic views. Take a few minutes to practice deep breathing exercises. This simple technique can help calm your mind, reduce stress, and improve your overall well-being.

By incorporating these tips, you can ensure that your meetings at The Otesaga are not only productive but also contribute to your team's overall health and well-being. Remember, taking care of yourself is essential for achieving optimal performance and making the most of your time at our historic resort. Contact us today to plan your next meeting!
