W.E.L.L. Summit Boston 2018

W.E.L.L. Summit Boston 2018 is almost here! The W.E.L.L. Summit is one of my favorite events of the year, and this year it is at the Boston Design Center in Seaport on April 21. It is a wellness conference that offers a unique 360° view of wellness. From healthy eating,  to fresh ideas for caring for your personal environment and making more mindful and informed choices for health and home,  to new friends made, this conference is for anyone looking to find tools to make personal + positive changes in their lives. Take a peek below for why you should join the #wellsummittribe + be sure to follow @bluebootsgo on Instagram and Twitter for some s-W.E.L.L. surprises in April before the W.E.L.L. Summit!

I’ve been attending W.E.L.L. Summit since the inaugural conference in 2015, and each time I benefit from being in a supportive environment conducive to personal reflection. My notebook ends up filled with ideas, sketches, and inspiration that I come back to all year. (One of my sketches won me a copy of Candice Kumai’s cookbook – color me excited – I love smoothies!)

If I had to pick a favorite aspect of the W.E.L.L. Summit, it would be the community. Check out the #wellsummittribe on Instagram (you can also Follow hashtags and they’ll pop up in your regular feed) for an idea of the ongoing conversation around wellness. I love the #wellsummittribe – it’s sparked a fun group cultivating a community for sharing ideas, questions, and opportunities in wellness-related industries. Not sure how to switch to clean beauty or which non-toxic cleaning products you should try first? Ask a question. Want to write a book but need some inspiration? Ask for tips or get together with a new friend. Attendees can sign up to be in the private W.E.L.L. Summit Facebook group and get connected to resources throughout the year between Summits.

While at the W.E.L.L. Summit, listen in, open up, and you’ll find something pretty special.

At W.E.L.L. Summit Boston 2018, you can expect:

A s-W.E.L.L time. But specifically:

  • A pre-party on Friday night and networking event on Saturday night
  • 7 hours with knowledgeable speakers and panels in breakout sessions
  • A nourishing Breakfast, Lunch (from Sweetgreen), Tea and Snacks
  • Sound meditation with Sara Auster, Yoga with Athleta
  • As if that isn’t already awesome, the W.E.L.L. Summit swag bags are filled with edible, useful, and pampering goodies. I discover new brands, play with products (I discovered I love face oils!), and find pretty jewelry and things that I truly love. organic beauty brands - W.E.L.L. summit swag bag
  • Live W.E.L.L. Marketplace with 30+ vendors with healthy snacks, cocktails, home goods and more brands you can trust.

I’m a bookworm, and meeting and talking with authors has been another highlight. Agapi Stassinopolous is such a dynamic speaker! I loved meeting her – and somehow, this introvert (hi, me) felt comfortable enough to tell a room of 500 people she wanted to write a book during her talk! Agapi is coming to Boston as the Keynote Speaker for W.E.L.L. Summit Boston 2018, so I hope you’ll get a chance to experience her joyful presence.

I absolutely L O V E Agapi’s book, Wake Up to the Joy of You. 52 short chapters with her infectious energy. Yes, please.

Speaking of books, if writing is your jam, you can learn the ins-and-outs of writing books in conversation with some of the speakers who have written books, like Asha, Agapi, and Sara DiVello. A couple of years ago, I got to chat with Candice Kumai.

Candice Kumai + BlueBoots Candice released a new book (pre-order for April 17) sharing her Japanese culture’s take on wellness –  Kintsugi Wellness: The Japanese Art of Nourishing Mind, Body, SpiritCongratulations, Candice! In sessions, you will be immersed in 360° of wellness and get the latest about clean beauty with Tara Foley (Follain), Mia Davis (Credo Beauty), and Rebecca Casciano (Sacred Beauty Salon), starting a business (lots of entrepreneurs in the crowd to talk shop with), and in all of them, you’ll come away with something new to think about.
