Is your office based in the heart of the city, amidst all the hustle and bustle? While we prefer our leafy hideout, we understand why so many people love working in the city. It’s exciting, commuting is easy (if a little cramped), and you’re able to just ‘pop out’ for lunch on an afternoon. Oh, and let’s not forget after-work drinks on the occasional (every) Friday.
Life moves super-fast in the city; but we all need to slow things down from time to time. We all need to stop, be still and take a breather.
…And speaking of ‘breather,’ the city air we inhale is no good for our lungs. It’s thick and polluted; and it may be invisible to the eye, but it can have a damaging impact on our health in the long run.
If you’re thinking of organising a teambuilding trip for your tribe, here’s a thought: why not leave the city smog behind for the day and head somewhere where the air is fresh, crisp and clean? Somewhere natural and peaceful, away from the constant noise?
You could, for example, take a trip to the forest and come hang with Go Ape! Did you know that the trees in the forest purify the air? They’re clever little things, absorbing odours and nasty pollutants, and filtering particulates out of the air by catching them on their leaves and bark. You won’t find cleaner air anywhere else!
Booking a forest-themed adventure at Go Ape is not only a great way to treat your tribe, but you’ll also be giving their health and well being a boost!
Benefits of fresh air
Want to know the specific benefits of forest air? Here are 7:
- Lowers blood pressure
- Reduces stress
- Gives us more energy
- Improves sleep
- Helps us to focus
- Boosts our immune system
- Makes us happier!
Your tribe are sure to benefit from some time among the trees, but you will too. If you all return to the office the next day feeling energised, focused and more optimistic, that’s bound to have a positive impact on productivity levels and your bottom line!
What to do next?
So, what to do? You could all embark on a Tree Top Adventure, where you’ll head up high to tackle an assortment of obstacles, from nets and ladders to tunnels, stirrups, swings and bridges! Oh, and let’s not forget the zip wires!
Alternatively, you could hop aboard some of our all-terrain Segways and roll about the forest floor, weaving in and out of the trees as you go. Really, it’s whatever works for you, your tribe and your budget. But we do recommend combining both adventures for the ultimate Go Ape day out!
