Charting can help households address the whole person during times of isolation by promoting generosity, acts of love, exercise, art & fun
My family prototyped this mindfulness chart on March 13, 2020 and have used it to loosely shape our days in quarantine. It addresses work/school, exercise, care for others outside our home, shared household cooking and cleaning, generosity, faith practice, games and unplugged activities like art, crafts, reading and outdoor activity, as possible.
In what ways did you change your behaviors as a result of this resource?
- Creating the chart gave our family the positive feeling of control over how we want to be through this time
- We feel like we are mindfully addressing the needs of the whole person
- We feel a sense of accomplishment when we reache these goals by the end of the day
- My personal behaviors have changed in that I'm more intentional about holistic self care and reaching out to help others, and engaging positively with my family
- We feel like we are very much still "finding our way" to cope as individuals and as a family
