  1. This is so useful! I’ve tried apps for this but never stick to it. I’m much more of a pen and paper person for these things. Feels more personal. It’s a beautiful design! Thank you!

  2. I have been intrigued by mood trackers for awhile, but I never thought of using one as a way to track my anxiety. I bet it would help me understand why I feel the way I do sometimes.

    1. Hi Kait, If you are experiencing anxiety mood tracking is honestly such a powerful tool to help you identify triggers and patterns.

  3. This is fascinating. So often I might feel anxious or worried but rarely stop to realize I feel that way or why. Going to try it this week.

  4. This is so helpful. I know sometimes when I strongly feel a certain way it’s difficult for me to identify the root reason. I love that you created something that works better for you!

  5. I really like the “CONNECTING YOUR MOOD TO AN ACTIVITY” part. I think living a life that’s intentional means we should know why we do what we do, and which of those things truly adds value. It’s also a great way to remind yourself of the happy things when you really need a lift.

    1. Thanks Jenn! I’ve really found that helpful too. CBT has a lot of tools about focusing on behaviours and activities to positively impact our moods. I love your point about focusing on happy things. This is definitely my goal with this mood tracker. Thanks for the wonderful feedback and take care!

  6. Yolanda, thank you for sharing your story and struggle! I’ve done therapy a time or two and my son deals with depression and anxiety and has benefitted from CBT. For anyone who hasn’t done therapy, I think your journal may be a ‘less scary’ approach to facing personal challenges — a way to reflect and react that doesn’t require pouring your heart out to a stranger. What a wonderful tool and one I’ll be sharing with friends!

    1. Hi Linda, Thanks so much for your positive feedback, especially since you’ve experienced CBT 🙂 That’s really hard that your son is dealing with depression and anxiety. Sending you a big hug. Thankfully there are so many wonderful resources out there but it still must be really hard. Here’s to happy, healthy days xoxoxo

  7. This is such a great idea. We have so much control over our mood, whether or not we realize it. I think it’s extra important at a time like this where so much of the world still feels so out of order.

    1. Hi Charissa! Thanks 🙂 It”s so true – even when feeling down we do have a certain level of control about how we get through the day.

  8. What a great way to turn a difficult situation into something positive. Nothing like providing a service for those who also deal with depression. Thanks for opening up about depression. I think most people have experienced it these days. The stigma is not there like it used to be.

    1. HI Julie – Thanks for your feedback! Isn’t it wonderful that people feel more free to talk about mental health?! Of course, there is always a fear (for myself too) that being open about mental health may have downfalls – but in the end I think it’s still more important to be vocal about it. Take care 🙂 xo

  9. I’ve never thought about mood tracking as a way to help with depression or anxiety. It makes sense to pinpoint certain times when you’re happy or feeling down. I’m so glad this exercise has been life-giving to you!

    1. Hi Lisa, It really is a wonderful exercise and a great way to be mindful and more intentional. Thanks so much for the feedback! Have a lovely day 🙂

  10. I definitely need to try a mood tracker! They seem so beneficial, especially if you have depression too

    1. Hi Freya, I truly think that mood tracking is great for anyone who wants to enhance their life in some way. A simple tool, but so powerful. If you give it a try I’d love to know how you’re getting on with it 🙂

    I love the idea of a mood tracker. I think it will really work to help me see what is causing me to not be joyful and focus more on fixing that.

    1. Hi Carrie, Absolutely – tracking your mood is so beneficial. Of course, you can learn about your moods/feelings but the best part is understanding what makes you feel good so you can act on that.
