Day 10: Mindful Games – try these mindful games with a friend or colleague!
Choose a number, e.g. #3, and use derivations of 3 (i.e., 3, 6, 9, 12) as the “buzz” word instead of saying actual number. Go around circle: Start with 1, 2, Buzz, 4, 5, Buzz, 7, 8, Buzz, etc. If someone miscounts or misbuzzes, step outside the circle and distract.
Go around in a circle. Start with a rhythm sound/gesture, each person repeats previous one(s) and adds a sound/gesture. If miss, step outside and become distractor.
The Name Game:
Go around in a circle. Say the name of a famous person – e.g. Abe Lincoln – the next person says a name that starts with the first letter of the previous last name – e.g. Larry King. If both the first and last names start with the same letter – e.g. Sharon Stone – then you reverse direction in the circle.
