Americas: Wellness—The Number One Trend?
If you were at Meeting Professional International’s World Education Conference this summer in Minneapolis you might have heard Deepak Chopra. Although his books and reputation were not well known to me, I found his talk inspiring and really interesting. One of the amazing things he said was that wellness is the number one trend in the world today. When you look at the global events of this summer it’s hard to imagine wellness as top of the list. I guess you have to say that we in the Western world are privileged to have the space, time, and energy to focus on our wellness rather than simply our survival.
But, Chopra’s talk got me thinking. Is it really wellness that’s the number one trend in the world, or is wellness simply part of a bigger trend towards self-improvement in all areas of our lives?
