Mood Journal
Nathalia Tello Arias

Many people struggle with negative thinking patterns that can result in irritability, anger, hopelessness, sadness, anxiety, or tension. Although every person has mood changes, not everyone has the introspection to know why these changes occur, or how to address them in a productive way.

Mood Journal is a small journal with sections for writing future goals, monthly events, and daily moods that is designed to help recognize mood patterns and promote positive actions towards feeling better. Journaling is a form of self care where the user is an active participant in their own wellness. By logging in their daily moods, activities, and thoughts, it creates a database that aims to uncover useful patterns. Each page has a dotted pattern that invites users to be creative, make time for self-reflection, and unplug. As the month ends, there is space for writing insights or accomplishments for that month.

This project serves as an introduction to self-care, but it does not substitute medical treatment. Instead, it can become a complementary tool for mental health professionals to track areas to address. In the end, Mood Journal is a fun way to tap into emotions and motivations with the goal of creating solutions for those looking to improve their moods.
