The service oriented profession of event planning can be very draining and when on site at a program, it could over extend an individual. I myself have experienced conferences that consisted of 12-14 hour, back to back days that could extend for over a week at a period. As much as planners are miracle workers, we are not invincible and need to remember that. Once the adrenalin wears down, you are working on nutrition from the mid-morning conference buffet and post-event desserts. The tip of the month is to take time to keep yourself healthy, and remember to do the following:
1. Take a deep breath and exhale
2. Sleep, sleep, sleep
3. Use that expense account for a well deserved SPA visit
5. Take daily moments for yourself
6. Air Borne & Emergen-C are your best friends!
