Hi Tanya Raschle great to have you join the challenge. Thanks for sharing your inspiration on how you are staying fit during the challenge. Tyson Sapre has shared some mindful activities in his submission Rebranding Mindfulness to Aid Individuals Affected by COVID-19 Social Distancing and Quarantine Mandates  - do you envision such an app creating and incorporating some of the additional activities?

Also Tabitha Kapic has some interesting idea on Intention Charting
