Quick Team Building Activities for Happy Healthy Hearts

Quick Team Building Activities for Happy Healthy Hearts

Quick Team Building Activities for Happy Healthy Hearts Spring has sprung and it’s time for some quick team building activities to boost team morale and reboot those innovative minds. And among the best quick team building activities, charitable team building workshops are simply unsurpassed.

What’s so special about donating a few bikes, wheelchairs, food items, or stuffed animals?

Well the answer may just surprise you, because what’s “special” has less to do with the recipients of these gifts than it has to do with the donors. Yes, just as “charity begins at home”, the benefits of charitable giving hit home first as well.

And that instant payoff comes in the form of one of the most sought-after but elusive desires of the human heart: happiness. Whether you wear a certain color or eat a particular food, you can actually program your brain to be happy. And believe it or not, there’s actually a method to this kind of madness! A happy heart inspires creativity and increases productivity. Charitable team building workshops make team members happy—and that happiness expresses itself in dramatically improved work performance.

A cherubic gentleman named Dr. Dale Anderson, has practiced medicine for more than 50 years; and he’s found that the “practice of happiness” is the best medicine of all! In fact, he’s started a movement called “Act Happy” and Dr. Anderson’s organization has proclaimed March 20-26 as National Act Happy Week!

Among the quick team building activities you’re planning for the 2017 fiscal year, why not join the happiness movement and participate in a charitable team building workshop during National Act Happy Week?

A brief bike break: What better way to celebrate the beginning of spring than a brisk bike ride?  By participating in one of our Bike-A-Thon Bicycle Team Building workshops, you and your colleagues can assemble and then donate a bicycle to a kid in your community.

In the spirit of friendly competition, you’ll enjoy solving some brain-teasing challenges, all the while getting to know your coworkers more intimately. Our facilitator will serve as liaison between your group and a local social service agency that will happily deliver your colorful new bike to a low-income family. Just think of it: with your help a grateful child can celebrate the spring season while soaring through your local park.

And when we promise quick team building activities, we really mean quick: our workshops can be tailored to suit your schedule, so if you’ve only got a couple of hours to spare, we’ll make sure they’re two of the most fulfilling and gratifying hours you’ve spent in a long time!

Knowledge is being aware of what you can do. Wisdom is knowing when not to do it.

Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.
