CORONAVIRUS JOURNALING PROMPTS

What do you want to remember from this time?

Ten years from now, how will we remember this time?  This idea was borne of a remark my hubby said to me that really took anchor in my brain.  The time we are walking through is something that will be discussed in History, Sociology, Psychology, and Health classes for the rest of time.  And we are LIVING it.  Wouldn't it be cool if there were a way the kids could create something they could look back on to see how THEY were feeling about the time the whole world shut down.  

I really thought this was a great idea, so on Monday, I talked to the boys about doing the project.  I let them choose what outlet they would like to use.  i.e. pen and paper, a word document, or vlog.  

Each day, I give them a new prompt.  Then I thought, ya know, it might be fun for others to share in this little project; so daily I will post the journal prompt I gave to the boys.  If you're interested come back daily for the new prompt!

DAY 1

Personally, at first I was excited at the excuse to hunker down and get some things done.  But now it's a bit different. The boys' vlogs show varying emotions.

 

DAY 2

Ok, surely I'm not the only one that feels like they've stumbled their way onto the set of the latest post apocalyptic movie.  Now let's explore it a bit!

DAY 3

Our lives have been completely interrupted-what are some things you're excited about returning to normal?  Hugs? Target? The gym??

 

DAY 4

Hindsight is always 20/20 right?  So here's your chance to explore it.  What would your future self say to your current self about this whole Corona thing??

DAY 5

Sometimes unwelcome disruptions bring about chances for rebirth.  Whats something cool that has happened as a result of social distancing

 

DAY 6

We've had to put lots of new "temporary" changes into our daily lives as of late.  What are some temporary changes that you would like to see stay?

DAY 7

Today's prompt is actually probably one of my favorites.  Our "new" normal is emerging and with that come new opportunities to serve.  Today is a chance to explore what you would create to meet the needs of this new normal.

 

DAY 8

Holy flip.  We have spent more time with our families since the Shelter in Place movement.  Today's check in is all about how we're handling that forced time together!

DAY 9

We have scientific evidence that this lockdown has positively benefitted our environment.  Today, let's talk about what changes you've seen and what you think we should do to continue taking care of our environment?
