Why Terrarium for Corporate Team Building?

In this fast paced world that we live in, it is easy to get caught up with whatever we are doing in the stressful corporate world. Some people are great at distressing or finding inner peace amidst the chaos while others are not. If you are looking towards feeling serenity, terrariums are a great way for you to do so. Additionally, it is a great team building activity too. Here are 5 reasons why terrarium is best for corporate team building!

  1. Promotes creativity in individuals

Doing the same things at work each day can feel like a chore after awhile. On top of that, it kills your creativity. Everyone needs a break from their normal daily routine to keep the creative juices flowing. With this terrarium workshop, you can unleash your creativity and build your own mini garden inside a glass container. Pick your favourite rocks, plants, cactus, and sand before assembling them together. Think out of the box on how to match the items together and challenge yourselves to create the best terrarium.

  1. Get to know your colleagues on a more personal level

Terrarium workshops are typically conducted in a relaxed and fun environment, which encourages communication among colleagues. Take this as an opportunity to break all seriousness and hierarchy from the office. Most of us are often misunderstood for the actions we take or the way we act in the office. Through this, you will be able to learn more about the person sitting next to you as well as the personality they posses.

  1. Allows you to feel tranquil

According to Business Insider, spending time around nature boosts your mental health and physical well-being. It also helps you to focus better and relieve all tensions you have in the body. Surprisingly, you can do so by having a terrarium with you! Since the plants are green in colour, it calms you down amidst the stress you are feeling. Plus, terrariums also help to reduce blood pressure and emotional agitation. Enjoying nature can now be done in the comfort of your own home or office.

  1. Encourages teamwork

When there are too many people in the company, chances are you would not have spoken to everyone. We would recommend you to pair up with someone whom you have not worked with and would like to know more about. While each of you work on your terrariums, give each other ideas on how to improve your container gardens. But this feedback session is not limited to just you and your partner. Go around the room and take a look at how your colleagues did their terrariums and provide great feedback on how they can make it better too.

  1. Includes everyone

Most physical games require waiting as it is not able to accommodate to big groups at a time. Sometimes, people do feel left out while waiting for their turn to play as it takes forever. However, the terrarium workshop is able to accommodate small or large groups all at one go. This way, everyone is going to feel inclusive – which is what team building is all about.
