What, Why & When?
Ever been in a 3 hour video call and had the burning desire to coffee-break every 30 minutes? Despair no longer! Below is our hand-picked (and partly self-invented) list of digital energizers that may spice up your online meetings and free you from your caffeine addiction.
- Keep energy high in digital meetings.
- Increase fun online.
Here's the list. You obviously don't need to do all of them in one meeting, but may pick according to your own judgement.
🤸♀️ Jumping Jacks
Have everyone do 5 Jumping Jacks
🔢 Do a digital headcount
Do a headcount (German: "Durchzählen") where the same number isn't allowed to be mentioned twice. If the same number is said more than once, start at 1 again.
🎙 Sing together (mic's muted)
Play a karaoke song (you can just use a "lyrics" video on youtube such as this one). Everyone mute's their mic and sings along.
🧾 Telling a story together
Everyone says a few words or sentences and hands off to another person which has to continue the story.
🤠 Model your favorite emoticons
Try to form your favorite emoji with your face, hands and body. Others can guess which it is.
🎰 Play a mini-game together
There are some games which you can play online together easily, such as Typeracer 🚕. Maybe you'll find others!
🥗 Elevator-Pitch your last meal
Have everyone pitch their last meal so as to convince everyone why that was the best meal ever.
