Mindfulness and meditation are fantastic tools to add to your list of small group team building activities and exercises. A great way to warm up before a big day or wind down after a long one, Mindfulness & Meditation will relax and enlighten your small team, taking their attention from the day ahead or the day just passed and allowing them to focus on the present. People who meditate and practice mindfulness often are more resilient and self-aware leading to better team communication. Headspace offers Headspace for Office Employees, and there are plenty of exercises for free on YouTube.

Simply start by letting your colleagues know that you are taking a stroll at lunch and ask them if they would like to join. Going for a walk during your lunch break positively impacts all areas of work, from concentration to creativity. As you walk, your small group strikes up a conversation building rapport, and easy familiarity with each other.
