Team building tips

Snap and Clap to encourage high energy and attention

Do I need any props?

No, just your fingers and hands!

What do I do?

Gather your team in a circle sitting on the floor.

Start by showing them the routine - clap, clap, snap, snap left, snap, snap right and repeat several times until everyone has the hang of it.

Then explain that we are going to free associate. At the end of the second snap to the right the first player says any first word that comes to their mind.

Tell the players to shout out their words loudly so all can hear over the clapping and snapping.

Keep going around the circle in a clockwise fashion until you get to the end of the group. 


Get your team excited and having fun- SUDDENLY

Do I need any props?

No, just your imagination

What do I do?

As the group leader you can start a story with a sentence that ends in SUDDENLY. (Or choose someone from the group) For example; 'Yesterday I went to the shop and was passing my old house when SUDDENLY.....'

The next person then has to add to the story with his/her own sentence that ends in SUDDENLY.

Continue the story until everyone has contributed. The story becomes more bizarre as each person adds their sentence.



Top tips to be mindful!

Take a couple of minutes to notice your breathing. Sense the flow of your breath, watch the rise and fall of your stomach.

Notice what you are doing as you are doing it and tune into your senses. When you are eating, notice the colour, texture and taste of the food.

Don’t feel that you need to fill up all your time with doing. Take some time to simply be. When your mind wanders to thinking, gently bring it back to your breath. Don’t day dream, make sure when you find yourself wondering you bring yourself back to the now, but similarly when you feel stressed and in need of a break- take a productive break.

Recognize that thoughts are simply thoughts; you don’t need to believe them or react to them.

Notice where you tend to zone out (e.g., driving, emailing or texting, web surfing, feeding the dog, doing dishes, brushing teeth, etc.). Practise bringing more awareness to that activity.
