you drank enough drink more! Eat like you are running a marathon for real. Your body isn’t use to working events or doing anything for 12+ and the pace you must work is even harder. You have to and I can’t stress this enough love what you do! There has to be some type of connection with the work you do for any client. That connection makes you push your body to its limits and then past them. Its so your client can have that positive experience that they paid for. Once I figured that out I was ready to tackle any event thrown my way!
•Get plenty of rest the week prior of a event especially the night prior.
•Its good to make sure you are healthy (do you exercise, do you walk/run) You may want to add that to your game plan so that your body can handle being on your feet and possibly standing for 12+ hours.
•Drink water the night before, when you get up, on the ride there, and at least a bottle per hour if it’s a hot day. (FYI if you are not urinating throughout the day your body is telling you that you could be dehydrated…drink more drinks)
•Carb up the night before, or eat a big hardy steak and potatoes… you really want to build your body for the next day.
•Eat a good healthy breakfast the morning of an event and if you can stop and grab lunch on the way, do that too!
•Bananas, Oranges and Apples (really any fruit) makes for easy quick snacks throughout the day too.
•Remember to bring cloths to set up and then change for the event. This will give you a few minutes to rest and freshen up.
•Before you go to bed try and eat a light snack, drink a bottle of water, probably want to pop two Tylenol and get some much needed rest.
•The following day if you can schedule a massage or a pedicure…it’s highly recommend! The lead event planner actually sees a chiropractor on a regular bases to make sure everything is in proper order and not out of line.
•Try and plan a day away from the office the day after an event if possible. Spend time with family friends you didn’t get a chance to hangout while planning and working that event. (They’ve missed you too).
