Effects of Grief on the Mind and Body

Effects of Grief on the Mind and Body

Previous project phases:

Project Launch
Final Product + Reflection

Share a v1 draft of your work product 👇

Post a link or embed a file of your v1 work product below. You will share this early draft with your housemates at checkpoint to get their feedback.
  • Right now my project is still just a mix of sparse research and some of my personal research
  • It will become a website (Wix)

Write down your feedback 👇

Write down bullet points of 2 pieces of feedback you received on your v1 project from your housemates or someone else you shared your draft with (this could be an expert, mentor, family member, etc).
  • I think you did a really good job on explaining how grief effecting other mind and body after somebody loses someone.
  • I think you could have gone a little bit more in depth on some of the bullet points. For example you could explain the symptoms of the metal illness.

What is your plan to make these changes?

How will you iterate your v1 draft before sharing your final project with your audience?
  • I will continue researching so that I can explain the aspects of what you will feel while grieving in more depth.
  • I will organize my thoughts more and finish developing a website.

📚 Content Feedback:

  • I can tell this is a topic you hold very close to your heart, and appreciated how vulnerable and real you were with your audience in sharing your personal story, and empathizing where they may be at.
  • You set out to educate your audience on the journey of dealing with grief, and tackled how it affects both the mind and the body. Your website shows that you’ve done a lot of research in understanding grief and how it can affect an individual.
    • If you were to continue expanding this website, a good addition would be to research/share tools you learned to deal with and manage grief.
  • Your UI for your website - through your images and color choice gives very relaxing, peaceful, and calming vibes
  • You used visuals and used sections to chunk and break up text and improve readability
  • I could tell you used multiple sources through your quotes in your slideshow section. Although for UX, it can be disconcerting/confusing when a user is clicking a button and it leads away from your website
  • I would suggest to remove the “Blog” button from top navigation, until you write relevant blog posts
  • I also noticed there were still some buttons in the Resources page that needed links/relevant pictures.

✨Further Learning:

💻 UX

  • Something that may be interesting to do, is sharing your website with users who fall into your intended audience, and see what they think/feel after navigating through your website
  • You have 5 different types of buttons on the front page, for UX you would want to have a general consistency between your buttons, so the user doesn’t get confused
  • Something to explore and keep in mind: “UX copy must provide a choice and move users towards a decision.”

☑️ Action Items:

  • Create a section in your site for tools for managing grief/stress, and you’ll level up in Stress Management
  • Set up a 1:1 with Jasmine to talk through Further Learning
