Daily Mood Journaling / Tracking Page
This template is primarily aimed at those suffering from Bipolar disorder or depression. It is meant to keep track of not only your moods, but also the events and variables surrounding them so that you can target things that trigger your moods so that you may balance them.
I really, really hope this can help some folks out. If anyone has any suggestions or questions, please, let me know. I'd be happy to help in any way I can. Also, this is my first template, so go easy on the negative comments, please.
(Please note, the thumbnail does a terrible job of showing what it looks like!)
You could probably come up with several systems to use with the template, but what I had in mind with it, was this:
During the day, mark a dot on on the "Mood Tracking" grid, showing where your mood was at during what part of the day. (Hint: There are 24 blocks going across!)
Also, keep track of how many hours of sleep you had the night before, what medications you took, what you ate, how long you exercised, and the weather.
At the end of the day, write a short blurb under daily blurb, describing how you felt throughout the day, or any event that stuck out in your mind. Also, note what your "overall" mood was during the day.
At the end of the week, or month, whichever you prefer, go through your mood logs and try to see if there are any patterns in diet, exercise (or lack-there-of), weather, sleeping habits, etc. that may be contributing to your depressed or manic bouts. See if you can find a common factor in the times you felt "normal" and try to repeat those things.
