Health and Wellness
By Jon Zajac

As a health and wellness enthusiast, I love incorporating fun and engaging icebreaker activities into events that promote healthy living. One way to do this is by using Health and Wellness-themed “This or That” questions. By asking questions related to exercise, nutrition, self-care, and mental health, you can create a positive and supportive atmosphere among your guests and encourage them to share their experiences and insights.

How to incorporate Health and Wellness themed This or That questions

To incorporate Health and Wellness-themed “This or That” questions into your event, follow these steps:

  1. Prepare a list of questions beforehand that are related to exercise, nutrition, self-care, mental health, or any other aspect of healthy living that you want to highlight. Make sure the questions are clear, concise, and easy to understand.

  2. Print out the questions on cards or display them on a screen or a poster board. Encourage your guests to form small groups of 3-5 people and take turns asking each other the questions. You can also create a rotation system where each group moves on to the next question after a set amount of time (e.g., 2-3 minutes).

  3. Make sure everyone has a chance to answer each question and listen actively to their responses. Encourage follow-up questions, comments, and discussions that build on the initial answers. You can also share your own experiences and insights about healthy living to keep the conversation flowing.

  4. After everyone has had a chance to answer all the questions, gather your guests in a larger group and ask them to share their favorite or most surprising answers. You can also use this opportunity to highlight any commonalities or connections that emerged during the activity.

  5. Consider using some of the insights or stories that came up during the “This or That” icebreaker as a springboard for further conversations and activities throughout the day. For example, you could organize a group workout class or a healthy cooking demonstration based on the topics that were discussed.

Ideas on different themes of questions

To keep your Health and Wellness-themed icebreaker questions fresh and engaging, you can explore different themes and categories that are relevant to healthy living. Here are some ideas:

  • Exercise: Ask questions related to physical activity, fitness, and sports (e.g., “Do you prefer cardio or strength training?” or “What is your favorite way to stay active?”).

  • Nutrition: Ask questions about food, diet, and nutrition (e.g., “Do you prefer cooking at home or eating out?” or “What is your go-to healthy meal?”).

  • Self-care: Ask questions that relate to personal care, relaxation, and stress management (e.g., “Do you prefer taking baths or showers?” or “What is your favorite self-care activity?”).

  • Mental health: Ask questions that address mental health, mindfulness, and emotional well-being (e.g., “Do you meditate regularly?” or “What do you do to manage stress?”).

  • Lifestyle: Ask questions that relate to habits, routines, and daily life (e.g., “Do you prefer mornings or evenings?” or “What is your favorite way to unwind after a long day?”).

By incorporating these different themes of questions into your Health and Wellness-themed icebreaker activity, you can keep your guests engaged and entertained while also promoting healthy living and positive habits. So why not give it a try and see how it can enhance your next event!
