  1. Select a host property in a natural setting so participants can take advantage of nature’s therapeutic benefits.
  2. Work with the chef to make sure every meal includes healthful options such as low fat, low sodium, gluten free, vegetarian and vegan selections.
  3. Offer healthful snacks such as fresh fruit, juices, granola bars and yogurt at various break times.
  4. Schedule an optional yoga session or brisk walk to launch each day.
  5. Confirm that the host property offers a well-equipped gym, large enough to accommodate attendees who wish to take advantage of the facility.
  6. Advise attendees who want to take advantage of stress-managing massages to pre-book to avoid disappointment.
  7. When alcohol is being offered remember to also include a variety of non-alcoholic beverages.
  8. If natural light and fresh air is not available during long sessions, make sure both are accessible during breaks.
  9. Include fitness excursions – such as local hiking, cycling or kayaking – as optional activities.
  10. Don’t over program. Allow delegates sufficient downtime to just ‘be.’
