April is Stress Awareness Month, We Can Help


It’s probably no coincidence that Stress Awareness Month is the same month as tax day. This year National Public Health Week is April 4-10 and their aim is to make America the healthiest nation by 2030. This is a great opportunity to encourage wellness in your organization and your community. Wellness programs reduce health costs, increase morale and engagement. Why not kick off a wellness program with promotional fitness products like custom branded shaker cups, Frisbees, jump ropes and healthy snacks.

Meeting Logistics can help develop creative competition and event activities revolving around steps using Fitbits. Winners can earn a weekend wellness retreat. Another idea is to add wellness into department meetings and take the group offsite to do something fun away from their desks, like an hour-long golf lesson, bowling or volleyball.

Here are some ideas for stress relief which can be done alone, with friends, or with coworkers as part of an employee wellness event.

Paint and sip night. Bring your favorite bottle of wine and prepare yourself for a relaxed, fun filled social experience. Unleash your inner artist, have lots of laughs and take home your creation at the end of the night. Paint and sip classes are quickly becoming the new night out for couples, friends and corporate events.

Exercise. Following a regular exercise program is a great way to relieve stress. Restorative yoga offers a soothing experience, designed to completely relax your body. It’s about slowing down and opening the body through stretching. Tai Chi is a meditative series of movements designed to connect the mind and body and foster a sense of calm and serenity. Qi Gong focuses on the repetition of one movement at a time.

Music has the ability to quickly shift our mood, affecting our subconscious mind where negative thoughts cause stress. Listening to music is an inexpensive, quick solution that’s almost always available. Also remember to play music on your commute to and from work. Keep a collection of music that helps you de-stress, release tension, or lift your spirits.

Aromatherapy is the use of essential plant oils to improve well-being. The oils are often placed in diffusers and allowed to permeate the air. It’s a practice that’s been used for centuries to address psychological and other issues. Some of the most popular essential oils are: peppermint, lavender, jasmine, chamomile, and lemongrass.

Adult Coloring Books. Coloring books are no longer just for children. Adult coloring books are all the rage right now. Just like meditation, coloring also allows us to switch off our brains from other thoughts and focus only on the moment.

Meeting Logistics can help you plan your next employee wellness event.  We know that the key to having a successful corporate wellness program is by encouraging overall well-being while still keeping it fun.

Green Promotions for Earth Day

earth day

Earth Day is celebrated worldwide on April 22, and more companies than ever before are using “green” giveaways to promote their commitment to the environment while advertising their brand, product or event. Earth Day draws attention to environmental issues around the world. It’s the perfect time for businesses to promote green initiatives and sustainability. Cultivate a #reusable lifestyle like #BringYourOwn with company lunchbags and #gogreen with recycled and reusable products deliver that message in a tangible way.

Plantable paper is a biodegradable eco-paper that is made with post-consumer materials (no trees harmed for this paper) and embedded with seeds. When the paper is planted in a pot of soil, the seeds grow and the paper composts away. All that is left behind is flowers, herbs or vegetables and no waste. These can be made in greeting cards, postcards, bookmarks, business cards and more. Simply add your logo to promote your company while showing your commitment to the environment. In our promotional products division, we carry a wide array of Earth Day promotions including plantable paper.

Meeting Logistics will continue to share other unique promotional products in future blogs to give you ideas on how to #gogreen.

Sushi team building workshops are run in a fun manner and combine an exciting mix of hands-on interactive sushi making with master chef-style competition. The group is split into smaller teams to compete against one another in a challenge to create the most beautiful and tasty sushi. Through a series of short sushi making demonstrations, the chef will teach everyone how to make 2-3 types of sushi.

The session usually lasts 1-2 hours and culminates with a team presentation to gauge which team has performed the best, and which team has not.

Wearables Are Big for 2016

Image source: Cicret

It’s important to stay up-to-date on the latest technology that can benefit event planners. In the way that smartphones are already transforming the attendee experience at tradeshows and events, other wearable smart devices will bring a new level of convenience.

One product a smart bracelet called Cicret (here’s the video), although very much in a development prototype stage, gives a glimpse of future possibilities for wearables. Their slogan is: “Like a tablet…but on your skin.” Hopefully this will go into production this year. There’s already a waiting list with people waiting eagerly to be notified when they’ll be able to purchase this very futuristic device.

Smart watches and other wearables will likely help event planners and participants to:

  • receive GPS directions
  • receive conference alerts
  • exchange contact/lead retrieval information
  • use as admission tickets
  • make audience polling responses
  • enable automated check-in for registration/meeting rooms
