Glamping Trips For Business Team Building

Most companies are aware that their employees are much more productive if they engage in teambuilding exercises. Many techniques including games, competitions or awards have been used to encourage teambuilding. More corporations are realizing that it is beneficial to take employees to a different setting to engage in these activities.

Glamping CampfireA glamping weekend, or in other words a comfortable camping trip is a cost-efficient way of providing employees with an unusual setting where they can relax and get to know one another. A glamping weekend is a lot more affordable than taking employees to a resort or a hotel and teambuilding exercises are very easy to implement in a camping setting.

It is important to establish a difference between glamping and camping. Glamping is a combination of the words glamorous and camping and refers to a camping trip made comfortable thanks to high quality equipment and small luxuries. Employees will be more likely to relax and engage in teambuilding activities if they are not uncomfortable during the company’s camping trip.
Glamping will provide employees with a relaxed environment where they can have fun and be themselves. The employees who remember going to camp during their childhood will probably feel nostalgic and easily get into the games and other activities planned. It might be necessary to motivate employees and convince them to take part in different activities by offering awards.

The goal of teambuilding is to convey the idea that everyone wins when employees work together for a common cause. This idea can easily be conveyed through everyday activities. You could for instance ask employees to form teams and put each team in charge of something. A team could set up the camp while another goes on a hike to the nearest grocery store to bring back a dinner. Do not miss out on any opportunities to get employees to achieve something as a team.

Plan different activities so that teams can compete against each other and employees can develop their leadership and teambuilding skills. You could for instance organize a football game, a scavenger hunt or a race. Improvisation activities such as riddles or charades are a great way to create a competitive atmosphere without asking employees to engage in physical activities. Encourage employees to give you some feedback on the activities and to suggest games they like.

The activities and games will help employees develop their teambuilding skills if the atmosphere is all about cooperation. The activities and games in themselves do not really matter as long as you clearly communicate what the goal is and what is expected of them. Encourage everyone to participate and make sure employees know how to make each other comfortable so no one feels left out of the activities.

Planning a teambuilding weekend is a lot of work. Glamping is the ideal setting because you can easily take employees to an isolated locations where they will not have to interact with the outside world during the entire trip. Plan games and activities in advance and do your best to create the right atmosphere.

Interest In Tamil Vedic Horoscopes Moves West

Interest in Vedic Astrology appears to be moving West with this particular form of divination attracting believers and non-believers alike.

So, What exactly is Vedic or Tamil astrology?

Tamil Lady - Does Astrology Work FOr Her?In a nutshell, it is the study of the stars, planets and other celestial (space) bodies in relation to their effects they have on human beings, animals and all aspects of the world as we know it. Most people wonder about the differences between Tamil and Vedic astrology, however, they are quite similar. In fact, Tamil astrology is a part of Vedic astrology which makes these two types interconnected. Vedic astrology is connected to the Hindu religion, which is signified by the use of the word, “vedic.” This means that it is connected to the spiritual realm and of course, divine revelation. Tamil astrology, on the other hand is known to have been originated in the Indian state, Tamil Nada and is seen as a very scientific type of astrology.

Astrology is used to divine many things in human life, some of which include birth or natal charts, past karma, probability of future relationships, career, money, success and many other of life’s important questions. Many westerners doubt the truth of this science; however, astrology has been around for thousands of years and is deeply rooted in culture and mysticism.

The truth of the matter is that it can neither hurt nor do any harm to get a reading and there are many ways you can get one. The first step is to determine what type of reading you wish to get. The first reading I ever purchased was a birth or natal chart. These charts plot the exact positions of celestial bodies at the exact location, day, month, year and time of your birth. Once the natal chart has been created, it then has to be translated by a qualified astrologer so that you can understand the meanings. Personally, I have found the natal chart to quite accurately describe my personality, disposition and issues that have cropped up throughout my life.

Another popular astrology reading is the relationship or love astrology reading. This type of reading compares the birth information of two people who are in a relationship or want to be in a relationship. The whole purpose of this is to determine compatibility and help prevent or strengthen their bond. Compatibility readings will usually compare the basic personality traits of each person and determine whether they will clash or complement each other. These readings will often describe how emotionally connected you two will become, the effect you both will have on each other and the probability of a happy future.

A third type of popular reading is career, health and karma. Both Tamil and Vedic astrology can help a person reveal what their true talents are and the best career for them. It can also warn of potential health issues and the Karma that their soul brought into this life that they have to work out.

Astrology is a wonderful science that is a great tool that we can use to better understand ourselves and the world around us. However, like any tool, it must be used with caution and not be relied upon completely. Free will shall always reign.
