The Inspiring Check-Ins Activity

Inspiring Check-Ins is a simple activity and tool to invite reflection, facilitate emotional focus and provide intentionality to life projects.

The process of inviting your group to check in and monitor their emotional wellbeing can be very powerful. It can help people feel seen and heard.

First, you need to create your check-in sheet. Think about what attribute(s) you would like your group to identify and monitor, and create the scale accordingly.

Use words, pictures or both to help with comprehension.

For example you can ask:

  • How do I feel emotionally about my life? Am I doing something that motivates me?
  • What would I like to do and I’m not doing it? What goal can I set myself in the next 10 days?
  • Is there something I don’t like and I want to avoid it? What can I do to improve my life?
  • What are my fears? What do I need to face them?
  • Who can I talk to if I need help? Why?

Distribute the worksheets to your group at the beginning of the day. Once distributed, provide ample time for your group to complete their worksheets as best as they can.

When ready, gather your group in small or large groups to discuss and share their check-ins. This process can be useful because it adds a level of accountability to the task.
