In Wellness: Are We Well?, we’ll explore the emerging Wellness Real Estate Lifestyle trend and how incorporating opportunities for regular outdoor activity – also known as Mother Nature’s Gym – can help reduce the impact of four of the major health epidemics facing American’s today.
The goal of this session is to get you thinking outside of the box and to catch the vision of putting people’s health at the center of planning and development. The ultimate objective is to help you create more connections within your own communities, because, ultimately, we all know that while business and industry may operate in a silo, we as humans-don’t.
Individuals across various industries are working to strengthen the connection between our health and the outdoors, and by working with them we can expand our influence for good. You will leave this session not only knowing what the wellness trends are, but with a few concrete examples and ideas that you can put into action right away.
Melanie Webb, a former wildlife biologist and personal trainer-turned outdoor wellness guide, will lead this session. Working at the intersections where health and wellness meet the outdoors for the last 20 years, Melanie will guide you as you describe the health and wellbeing of your community, examine your organizational approach and identify potential partners in various industries, and outline an outdoor fitness retreat for your neighborhood or community.
- Describe the current health epidemics facing your community and the hurdles to overcoming them.
- Name potential individuals and business partners in the health and wellness and outdoor recreation industries who you can collaborate with to host an outdoor fitness retreat in your city.
- Outline a 3 – 4 hour outdoor fitness retreat in your community or neighborhood. Start by identifying the who, what, when, where, why, and how.
Participants will be invited to demonstrate their understanding of the concepts presented in the session by writing and submitting a one-minute paper. The paper will describe their vision of the most epic, no-holds barred outdoor fitness retreat serving the greatest number of people in their community.
