Mood Tracker Bullet Journal Ideas
It’s time for another fabulous collection of Bullet Journal Tracker layouts.
Today it’s all about looking out for you! There’s a buzz around self care right now but it’s not just a fad. Looking after ourselves is super important, but because we’re so busy it often comes at the bottom of our to do lists (if it even makes the list at all!)
If you have been noticing that you find yourself easily triggered, falling into certain negative moods, or that you can’t seem to change your mood when you need to then you should think about using a mood tracker in your Bullet Journal.
Mood trackers can help you figure out what put you in a certain mood, but also what to focus on to remove negativity from your life and reduce bad moods.
If this sounds like something you want to do, here are some ways to create and use a mood journal in your daily routine.
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!
