Asthma Calendar

Many people find it helpful to use an Asthma Calendar. Here are some of the ways people use it:  

  • Hang this calendar in a visible place,  like on the fridge,  then everyone involved in your child’s care will know if the medicine has been taken or not
  • Use it for one month to reinforce the daily routine of taking asthma medicine. Research shows it takes 21 days to create a new habit
  • Encourage your child to participate in creating a new routine. Some children are motivated by rewards for remembering to take medicine every day for a month
  • Track medicine changes you make as outlined in your Asthma Action Plan and bring this information to all of your asthma appointments
  • Track symptoms to increase your awareness of what your asthma symptoms are and when they happen to help you understand what well-controlled asthma feels like
