Blog: 10 Ways To Improve Your Mental Health While Attending INBOUND.
INBOUND is a fun event and a great way to network. That said, any large business event can be stressful between traveling and finding time to recharge.
We want to share our INBOUND blog post about 10 ways to improve your mental health while attending INBOUND.
1. Get Plenty of Sleep
It's important to schedule time for sleep when you're attending any business event. If you have a regular bedtime, stick to it. You might have to miss out on some of the nightlife, but you’ll thank yourself when you’re bright-eyed and ready for the next day
2. Eat Healthy Foods
Be mindful of what foods you eat for your regular meals, and only treat yourself every once in a while. Eating healthy foods will help you maintain your energy levels and keep your mind sharp.
3. Get Some Exercise
Exercising at a business event might seem like a silly idea, but it can do wonders for your mental health if you’re feeling stressed or anxious.
If you can't fit in a full workout, just go for a quick walk or a run outside.
4. Stay Hydrated
It can be challenging to remember to stay hydrated while you’re at a business event. Bring along a portable water bottle so you always have something to sip on. Drinking plenty of water will help you stay focused and avoid fatigue.
5. Take Breaks
When you're feeling overwhelmed, take a few minutes to yourself to relax and rejuvenate. Step outside for some fresh air, find a quiet spot to meditate or pray, or visit the “quiet room” at INBOUND and unplug from your electronics.
6. Stay Connected with Loved Ones:
Talking to your friends and family while you’re away can help reduce stress and make you feel more connected. Send them a text or give them a call while you’re winding down in the evening.
7. Avoid Drinking Too Much Alcohol
Alcohol might seem like it will help you relax or even become more sociable, but it could make your anxiety worse. If you do decide to drink, make sure you do so responsibly. B complex vitamins can be a great tool to making sure you're prepped and ready for the next day's events.
8. Practice Deep Breathing
You won’t always be able to step away to get some personal time or go for a walk. In those moments, practicing deep breathing might be the best way to get a little bit of relief.
Deep breathing increases the flow of oxygen to the brain and even stimulates your nervous system.
9. Remember Your Strengths
If you start to feel intimidated, try to remember your strengths as a person. There’s a reason you’re at the event. You’re a representative of your company, and you bring a lot of value to the table
10. Prepare Ahead of Time
To avoid unnecessary stress, plan ahead.Browse the agendato decide which talks, workshops, and other events you want to attend before you travel. Leave enough time in your schedule to eat, sleep, and relax.
We hope these tips will help you stay mentally healthy at your next big event, and we hope you’re as excited about INBOUND 2022 as we are!
