Keeping a mood journal is an excellent way to monitor your emotions and thoughts. It can be used to discover a relation between your mood and certain situations or behaviours. The way you keep track of your emotions doesn’t really matter, what’s important is that you use a method that works for you. You can write down your mood at certain time intervals, answer a set of questions whenever your mood changes, fill in a form every evening, etc. Some prefer pen and paper, others use mood tracking apps.
I decided to start tracking my mood a few months ago but I am still trying to find the method that works best for me. One of the things I really wanted to try out were mood tracking apps. I downloaded Moodtrack Diary, the most popular mood tracking app in my store region, and used it to actively track my feelings for two weeks. Besides Moodtrack Diary, I also tried out Emoly for a few days.
