Between crazy bosses and creepy coworkers, it's a wonder you get any work done at all. Here's a little help.
You Will Need
- Two or more people
- An elevated platform (optional)
Position person who will fall
Instruct the person who will fall to stand with their eyes shut and their hands folded across their chest.
Position the person who will catch – the spotter – behind the person who will fall.
Instruct the faller to keep their body straight and stiff and to lean back on their heels, allowing themselves to fall into the arms of the spotter.
Trust fall with several spotters
If you have more people participating, position several to surround the faller. Spotters stand in a semicircle around the back of the faller to catch them.
Perform an elevated trust fall
Stage a trust fall from an elevated platform, such as a stepstool, tree stump, or riser. Spotters face each other and link hands. The faller falls into the net of arms.
Think about how you feel
Think about how this exercise makes you feel once you and your adrenaline level have fallen. The object is to become more trusting and confident.
