These bullet journal mood trackers will help you keep tabs on your emotions and mental health #bulletjournal

Setting up a mood tracker in your journal

A mood tracker can be set-up in various ways. One way that people find that works well for them is to have a strip at the top of each daily page that has various faces. These faces range from a full smile to a full frown or even pain. This allows you to simply pick the emotion you are feeling.

That is the first step.

Underneath this strip of faces can be other strips or just an area to write your thoughts on your mood.

Other strips that you can use are scales that show how happy or sad you are. You can also expand on these as you need to.

When to use a mood tracker

Mood trackers are perfect for moments in your day when you find yourself in an extreme of a mood.

Most people start mood trackers as a way to focus on why they may be sad, depressed, or feeling anxious and work through those issues. Many users of mood trackers feel a rush from seeing their lives and their entries go from a negative extreme to a more positive feeling over a period of time.

How the mood tracker can help you

The mood tracker helps you focus on you. That may sound odd, but if you are going through an emotional or mood extreme you may focus on the problem or emotion and not on yourself.

By writing down your thoughts and recognising the emotion or mood connected to them you can help bring the focus back to you and making your life a bit better from the journal entries and routine.

Mood trackers are similar to trigger trackers in the sense that both are done at the time of the emotion. This means they should be an option that is easy to take with you and easy to use when you need to journal, which is why it makes perfect sense to put your mood tracker in your Bullet Journal!
