Happy DAY SEVEN of our #30DaysofSocialConnection…
Today’s Power Skill: JOURNALING
While it might seem TOTALLY extra to write down your current daily experience, PLEASE, PLEASE, just hear me out. Your current daily experience is something your children and grandchildren will ask about. And when it comes to passing down your story, of the Great Pandemic of 2020, how will you share it? Writing down your daily experience will not only help you in passing on the story of your life, but it will also help as you look back (6 months to a year +) on what you’ve been through. It’s when we write down how we’ve overcome difficult experiences, that we are able to remember and apply those situations to future encounters that require resiliency. Your future will thank you for recording today!
Here’s how we put “Journaling” Writing it Down into Practice:
- Using a journal or Notebook to record the happenings of today
- Make sure to include the date.
- Include what you’ve done… even as boring as it might seem
- Also share the feelings you felt… sad, bored or even happy.
Family Dinner Table Talk Questions / Conversation Starters:

- Share one thing you’ve learned about yourself from Shelter in Place
- Share one thing you’d like to see changed in teh world from Shelter in Place?
- What would you tell your kids / grandchildren about this experience?
- How do you plan to record the memory so you don’t forget?
