What do you do when it isæIan Fraser‘s birthday and you can’t be there because you are running a game for a college in Michigan, and they put you up in a dorm room, and all you have are 4 suitcases filled with costumes?
Answer emails to co-workers with an animated GIF. There are so many good ones! Like this one, when you want to congratulate someone on a job well done:
Stage an office chair race at lunch.
äóìStealth-discoäó a coworker on a conference call: Sneak behind an unsuspecting colleague and dance behind them while another coworker takes a quick video on their phone.æ
Take a quick play-break for trivia (there are lots of great questions online).æ
Buy a hula hoop and keep it near your desk. If you absolutely canäó»t leave your computer because youäó»re expecting an urgent email, or youäó»re a salesperson who answers phones, then you can simply stand up and hula hoop for 2 minutes. Itäó»s not only fun, but over time your abs will look AMAZING.
To show one of your coworkers that you appreciate him or her, make a simple scavenger hunt that takes that person around the office. You can leave paper clues in planters, under someoneäó»s keyboard, behind the coffee machine, or taped to a bathroom stall. Finish it off with a small gift, like a hand-written card that expresses your gratitude to be able to work with them.
And if you can, just take yourself to camp! Camp Grounded is hosting more sessions this summer, and is already selling tickets for their Northern California camp in 2016. You wonäó»t regret it!
