The events industry has been known to have seasons. Year after year, meeting professionals have been able to count on a chaotic period of time during the events season in which they will work especially hard, meet heightened demands, and make miracles happen. This will all eventually conclude with a period of time in which business will taper to a steady, more manageable flow.
But this is no more! With the explosive success of the corporate events industry, meeting professionals are now clamoring year round to keep up with the industry demands. It’s over the top, around the clock demands are pushing meeting professionals to reach new heights. As one of the fastest growing industries, event professionals are a highly sought after commodity.
But with the new demands on this industry comes the need for meeting professionals to find new ways to alleviate the stress that comes with this fast, never-ending pace. Here are some of the ways KONCEPT EVENTSstaffers get their Zen-like balance back…
Pet a Dog: KE IS A DOG FRIENDLY OFFICE. Each staff member takes turns bringing their furry friends to the office. Plenty of cuddle time means plenty of smiles! Studies show that time with a pet increases your Cortisol levels which is the natural chemical in our body that relieves stress.
Om or Pow: It doesn’t matter whether you’re at peace on a yoga mat or find your calm hurling a fist into a sandbag. KE staffers dive into exercise as often as possible to let the stressful energy flow out and the creative energy flow in. Exercise releases Endorphins which combats the negative signs of stress such as a lowered immune system and increased appetite.
Culinary Creativity: Whether you like prepping and crafting your own meal or you enjoy dining in the trendiest spot in town, the palates of the KE team are ready for culinary delights. And of course a glass of a lovely libation is always a nice touch to any tasty treat!
Change Your Space: For meeting professionals, changing spaces is an average day at work. But there’s something very soothing about altering your own personal space. Environmental psychologists have been studying for years the many ways in which smells, clutter, even temperature have an effect on your mood and stress levels. PRO TIP: Try incorporating soft blues or greens into your work space for calm or yellow to brighten your disposition. A pillow on your desk chair or even organizing your folders in these shades can make a difference!
Twerk-Off: One thing the entire KE team has in common…a fondness for the dance! If all else fails, a twerk session will re-fresh even the busiest event professional. We incorporate it into our events all the time…but the best part is, you can take this stress reliever with you anywhere!
