Incorporating wellness into your events – the secret sauce to success


As the warm embrace of summer approaches, the allure of outdoor events, team-building retreats, and corporate gatherings beckons. Yet, in the rush to plan the perfect summer soiree, we often overlook a crucial element – the wellbeing of our attendees. In today’s fast-paced world, integrating wellbeing into your events isn’t just a luxury. Lucy Eden, founder of Be In Your Element shares her top four ways to incorporate wellness into your events…


The power of connection

Summer events offer a unique opportunity to foster connections, both personal and professional. Whether it’s a company retreat or a networking event, bringing people together in a relaxed and rejuvenating environment can have profound effects. Shared experiences under the sun can break down barriers, stimulate creativity, and build stronger, more cohesive teams and relationships. If a summer get-together isn’t currently in the diary, add it in. It’s a super powerful time to build stronger and deeper connections.

Using nature to nurture is a great way of incorporating wellness into your events

Choosing a venue with ample outdoor space isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s about enhancing the overall experience for everyone involved. Outdoor settings have been proven to reduce stress, boost mood, and increase overall wellbeing. Whether you prefer a serene garden setting, a tranquil beachside location, or a lively rooftop terrace, the outdoors offers a natural backdrop that promotes relaxation and rejuvenation.

Wellness focused activities are more than just a trend

Incorporating wellness focused activities into your summer events is more than just a passing trend, it’s a commitment to prioritising the health and happiness of your attendees. From sunrise yoga sessions and guided meditation to team building exercises and nature hikes, there are countless ways to infuse wellness into your events. These activities not only provide a welcome respite from the daily grind, but also encourage attendees to prioritise their wellbeing. By offering opportunities for relaxation, mindfulness, and physical activity, you’re empowering your attendees to take an active role in their health and wellness.

Incorporating wellness into your events is a simple decision with lasting impact

It’s often the simple decisions that make the biggest difference. Opting for healthy catering options, providing ample hydration stations, and ensuring comfortable seating areas are just a few ways to show your attendees that their wellbeing is a priority. Moreover, creating a supportive and inclusive environment where attendees feel valued and respected can significantly enhance the overall event experience. Encourage open communication, prioritise accessibility and be mindful of individual needs and preferences to create an event that is truly inclusive and welcoming for everyone.

By integrating wellbeing into our summer events, we not only enhance the overall experience but also foster connections, promote health and wellness, and create lasting memories. So, as you plan your next summer event, remember to keep wellbeing at the heart of your planning process. Your attendees will thank you, and you’ll be setting a new standard for what it means to host a truly exceptional event.
