The final topic of Effective Meetings is the one we feel the most passionate about: to achieve peak performance, host a healthy meeting! Vue’s unique approach to meetings starts by providing a healthy environment; from there, we help you add as many or as little healthy options as you’d like.
We want your meeting participants to keep their minds and bodies firing on all cylinders. Here are a few ideas we suggest to help achieve a healthy, productive meeting:
Whether you are at your home office or an offsite meeting – there is nothing better you can do for yourself that get up and move!
Movement is great for our brain, mood and body!

Sure, drink coffee – because its delicious, wakes you up and has health benefits (if you skip the sugar). BUT – follow it with lots and lots of water! You guessed it… staying well hydrated is good for your brain, mood and body.
Tip: having trouble kicking soda? make the switch to sparkling water. We go through heaps of Lacroix at Vue. (Jimmy Fallon can help you pronounce it)
Indoor air quality is a growing concern for workers who spend most of their day inside an office. Providing fresh, clean air has always been a guiding design principle at Vue.

A great meal is an important part of any meeting! Sometimes, it’s the thing you look forward to the most. The food definitely has to be tasty! But, try to also select meal and snack options that will fuel your energy and brain power. Vue provides a healthy assortment of snacks to fuel your day and we’ve partnered with Metro Cuisine to provide high quality, delicious and nutritious menu options (check our their Wellness Menu).
Tip: Ward off the afternoon lull, swap the carbs for protein packed snacks. For other tips, recipes and ‘try this, not that’ – check out this great resource from the American Cancer Society.
