Describe your mood in...

Check in with how your group is feeling by asking them to describe their mood through a fun visual and spark conversation by having them explain why.

How to

  1. Copy our Miro template.
  2. At the start of your meeting, ask the group to choose a visual (see examples below) that represents their mood.
  1. Ask them to share it in the chat.

  2. Encourage group members to share the explanation behind their choices.

    Some examples for visuals for the group to share include:

    • Emojis

    • GIFs

    • Memes

    • Background: Have participants change their background to reflect their mood. Provide the group with different backgrounds they can apply in the meeting, such as a sunny or rainbow background versus a gloomy or cloudy one. Also, applying matching backgrounds could make people in the call feel closer.

    • Weather: A go-to conversation starter is always the weather, so why not relate our moods to it? Have team members describe their feelings through weather: “Imagine you’re looking out the window and the weather outside reflects your mood. Is it day or night? Clear or cloudy?” and so on. You can do this through a collaborative Miro board to be more interactive or just describe it verbally.

    • One word: If you want to keep it simple or are tight on time, participants could describe their mood in one word either out loud or by typing it in the chat.

What we like about it

This activity is a simple yet fun way to sense how the group is feeling going into the meeting.

It captures the whole group’s attention by asking everyone to participate and see each other’s submissions.

It’s also always funny when people are late or miss the meeting and wonder what’s going on in the meeting based off the chat.
