Mood tracking

Mood tracking is a positive psychology technique for improving mental health where a person records their mood, usually at set time intervals, in order to help identify patterns in how their mood varies. It has been suggested as a self-help method for people suffering from mood disorders such as anxiety, clinical depression, and bipolar disorder.[1]

The recording of moods can be carried out within smartphone apps[2][3][4], for example Happiness, Moodistory, Moodlytics, T2 Mood Tracker.
