In practical and profound ways, Cards for Calamity guide you through the weeks, months and years after disaster. The cards distil decades of recovery knowledge and neuroscience into an easy-to-use tool to make life-changing decisions in the wake of disaster.

To come out of a disaster the best you can, it helps to have knowledge and inspiration from others who have been there before.

These cards are for you if:

  • you want to come out of disaster the best you can for you and your loved ones
  • you want to feel more in control of your post-disaster life
  • you want to find clarity among the chaos
  • you want a practical gift for someone you care about who has been affected by disaster.

Create your wellbeing and resilience plan in 3 steps

Step 1: Open and Divide

The cards come in a pack of 100. Once opened they can easily be divided into 6 coloured sections. Each of these sections is designed to help you know what to focus on to get you through challenging times:

1. Connect

Mobilise and get the best support from your support network when you need it most.

2. Tips for Turbulence

Tips, tricks and tales from people around the world to help steer you through rough times.

3. Prototype Your Body

Small experiments to help you work out how best to support your body to perform and stay well, even under pressure.

4. Damn Good Decisions

When the pressure is on that we need our decision-making powers to be at their best. Making poor decisions only adds to our load and our stress levels. These cards provide a range of questions that you can use to test key decisions.

5. The Cool Down

These cards help guide you when you risk coming undone under pressure. It is during the calm that you are best placed to reflect on your tendencies and work out your strategies before high emotion and stress hit.

6. Your Next Move

A range of ways to use the cards both by yourself, in teams and at home.

Step 2:
Choose your favourite cards

Choose your favourite cards from each section. Which cards will be most useful for you or your team when you are under pressure? Which cards resonate or jump out to you?

Step 3:
Build a wellbeing and resilience plan

Your chosen cards will form a wellbeing and resilience plan so you and your team are prepared when things get tough
