Wiggle While You Work: Inviting Imagination + Play Into Your Workday


About this FieldTrip

What if our society deemed it essential for adults to have recess every day? Our world tends to dismiss the power of play for adults but turns out that play sparks joy which is actually vital for problem-solving, creativity, and relationships. In this interactive workshop, delve into new ways to lighten up during a heavy workday.

Explore how you can create breaks in your workflow that make space for your imagination and fun (yes: fun). Participants will re-learn the power of play through simple prompts and activities that will ignite wackiness, wit, and wildly deeper connections with themselves and others.

Join and you’ll get:

• An opportunity to dive deeper in learning the research behind the importance of incorporating imagination, curiosity & play into the daily workflow

• To participate in an interactive activity that will allow folks to explore how and why taking breaks is essential in boosting creativity, productivity, and an improved mental state of well-being

• A chance to ignite connections with people across the globe through craft, play, and reflection

• To walk away with the beginnings of a personalized “wiggle deck” —a personalized guide to navigating the best kinds of breaks to take within the workday that will re-energize, re-focus and re-engage the often over-stimulated workday brain
