This energiser is useful to help energise participants during a training session, whilst also testing their knowledge on the topic.
The energiser is particularly useful in training sessions where you want to provide participants with the opportunity to relax and re-focus. It would also work well during training in Stress Management, Assertiveness Skills and Anxiety at Work.
Resources – prior to the session, print out a selection of ‘stretching exercises’ that are easily available on the internet. We provide a recommendation in the instructions that you can download using the link at the bottom of this page.
Ask participants to perform stretching activities. While they are doing this each person should take it in turn to provide a learning point from the training session.
Only once the group has named ten learning points can the participants stop the stretching exercise and move on to the next topic. This provides participants with the opportunity to relax and get their blood flowing whilst still linking to the training topic.
Health and Safety – prior to running this activity, ensure everyone is in good health and able to perform the stretching exercise. If you are in any doubt, do not run the activity.
This energiser is a good method of relaxing participants whilst reinforcing learning.
