If you’re looking for a way to keep those sweet energy levels boosted throughout the day, then have I the solution for you.
See, contrary to what those reptilians who secretly run the world may want you to think, productivity is not about managing time, rather, it’s about managing energy. The hours in the day are fixed, but the quality and quantity of energy you have is up to you baby.
So what’s the solution? Take a lil break! You earned it, plus it’s good for you. Sometimes a quick five-minute break is all your mind needs to refresh itself and get that sweet productivity boost to get you through another day of living the dream.
To encourage all you beautiful people to take five and keep your minds fresh and full of vigour all day long, Red Bull have created three fun office-themed online games you can play right now. The perfect excuse to boost team morale and get to know everyone in the office better, all while playing some fun online games. What’s not to love?
Red Bull Office Games is a fun little online tournament designed to help your team come together by gaming together. And as if you needed even more of an incentive to do some quick online gaming on The Man’s dime, you can have the chance to score an ultimate all-expenses-paid curated office party for your workplace, featuring a high-performance coaching session from a Red Bull athlete, socialising drinks and a Red Bull Music DJ. Now wouldn’t that be lovely.
Other prizes up for grabs include an inspirational talk for your team delivered by a high-performance coach from the world of Red Bull, plus a Red Bull cooler for the office with a cool six-month supply of Red Bull. Nice.
All you have to do to be in the running for this sick prize is play one (or all three) of the online games, and complete the registration form on the site. Once that’s done you can invite your workmates to play along and contribute to your company’s overall score.
Gaming at work, and the chance to be the office hero? What a time to be alive. But enough about that, let’s talk about the games.
This one’s kind of like an office-themed Tetris, with a unique twist which I won’t spoil for you. I will say this though, out of the three, it’s my favourite. I’m low-key addicted. At first, it starts off pretty chill. You start to think, oh yeah, I’m in control here — until you’re not. Good luck.
Outbox Your Inbox
This one’s the hardest of the lot. But that’s just like, my opinion man. If you want to give your hand-eye coordination a real workout, then look no further than Outbox Your Inbox. Trust me, whatever score you get will be a lot better than mine.
