Being at Family Reunion is like running a marathon. Are you in condition? Will you be able to keep going or get tired before the finish line?

Here are some basic tips to make sure you are able to get the most out of Family Reunion:

  1. Wear your walking shoes. The KW sneakers are great, but any will work. Add some gel inner soles to whatever shoes you are wearing. If you have ever worn a pedometer during in the past we have been able to cover six to 12 miles going back and forth from sessions, events and to the hotels in one day.
  2. Stay hydrated. This is the simplest way to keep your energy, feel good, decrease pain, deal with the effects of traveling and the nights in New Orleans. Carry water with you!
  3. Stretch. Sitting in sessions all day isn’t the way most agents spend their days. By doing simple stretches before and after sessions, you will keep your body much happier.
  4. Have good posture. Good posture will keep you moving efficiently, you won’t have to exercise as much, and most importantly you will look successful!
  5. Food is fuel-you will need it. Eat a healthy breakfast and a few healthy snacks for energy throughout the day.

Remember to take care of your best business asset, YOU! I’ll be popping in during the beginning of some sessions to help support you during your marathon. Good luck and have fun!
