Description: a quick check-in that opens up a realistic room perspective.
Secondary Objectives: to learn about people's current moods.
Primary Objectives:

*solicit attitudes, values, assumptions and motivation
*promote team spirit

Materials: n/a
Process: ask everyone to describe their current mood with one or two words. start with yourself and release your inhibitions! anything goes. continue on in a circular fashion. if you find that most moods are negative, continue on with an energizer activity (see variation for example energizer). if most are neutral or positive, continue on with your event.

Variations: if moods are negative, starting with yourself, reverse the words you stated and say them backwards. for example, if someone says "anxious," they would say "suoixna". laughter will prevail as people try and reveal their words!
