Mood Diary - pocket mod and Cognitive Restructuring problem solving worksheet

This is the Daily Mood Journaling / Tracking Page by Matdredalia worked into a pocketmod format. I often leave my planner on my desk, but never my wallet. Since this isn't something I'd want anybody looking at, I prefer to keep it in my wallet. (I never fill out the personal information pages of the planners either. Oh, and the reason I'm so touchy about personal info -- I work in a jail).

Thanks for the original template Matdredalia, and for permission to pocketmod it!

I'm also adding another pocketmod which incorporates some of the Mood Diary. It also has a worksheet for a "Problem Solving Technique". This is based somewhat on David Burns books and the cognitive restructuring schools of thought. Cognitive theory holds that at least some of the time when we face a psychological problem, it is at least partially caused by our own distorted thought patterns. So, whenever you notice yourself having thoughts of suicide, feeling a need to cut, feeling the need to overeat, feeling the need to not eat or purge, or ...
a technique to handle it is to write down the emotion, what triggered it, and then rephrase your self talk to overcome the distorted thinking.

I find to do this, I really need to have this sheet with me all the time -- hence the pocketmod. I also like tracking the factors from the mood diary as well. The two blank rows at the bottom can be used for tracking other factors that may be relevant for you.

Lastly, one page of the mod is for keeping track of doctor's appointments.

Categorized shopping list

This is a small template for a shopping list which can be printed on 3x4 size paper (with space on the top for punching holes), with headings for different categories of items, like produce, dairy, etc. It currently fits my closest store layout, but I am including the source file (requires OpenOffice Draw), so that it can be tailored.

As a side benefit, this template encourages eating more veggies ;)

3x5 index cards in letter sheet

Five 3x5 index cards on one letter sized sheet. Different styles.

Paper size: 
Letter and A4
Thumbnail: 
card_temp_thumb.png
Usage advice: 

Until a short time ago, I was printing 4up 3x5 index cards on letter sized paper, but then I discovered that if I placed the cards right, I could get more cards from a single sheet and thus, waste less paper.

There are three files:

  • blank cards
  • lined cards (horizontal)
  • lined cards (vertical)

The lined templates each come in four styles:

  • traditional (red upper line and blue lines, shown in thumbnail)
  • black
  • gray
  • light gray

There are templates for both the front and back of each card, and when I tested it on my printer (Epson Stylus CX4700), they came out perfectly, but on other printers you might have to tinker a bit. Just remember to select None on the scaling menu when you print from Acrobat Reader.

I also posted the OOo Draw file, so you can make changes if you need to.

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!)

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Thumbnail: 
bipolarthumbnail.jpg
Usage advice: 

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.

24/7 Work/Life Planner

This is two-page per day classic size template based on the 24/7 Work-Life Planner featured in the new time management book: "Attack Your Day" by Mark Woods (and his late Father Trapper). The date is left blank so you can print as many as you want and add the dates to them.

This works well on both seven ring planners and Circa punched junior books also. Your preference.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Usage advice: 

I've used these templates for a while now since reading the book and they are great for non-linear folks like myself. I've updated this area on the template since I posted this a few years back when the book was released under another title. It has since been re-released by Mark Woods under the new title at:

Attack Your Day!

The book is available online at all outlets and also in eBook form from Google and Amazon

Medication Tracker

My main reason for keeping a planner is to keep track of all of my doctor information and appointments. However, it is also a very convenient way to keep track of all the medications I am taking: for my reference, in case of emergency, or if I'm seeing a new doctor.

To that end, I created this template. It's optimized for the 6-ring planners that are 4.25"x6.75". I left out markings for holes as I imagine you can use a sheet from your planner already to mark them and it should make it easier to scale it for other planners.

This was created using Scribus. I certainly welcome any suggestions for improvement: this WAS my first attempt, ever, at anything like this.

Usage advice: 

The name of the medication (I suggest using the generic name, if you know it) should go above the purple box. The 'R' stands for 'Refills' (as an aside: pencil might be best!). The other fields should be self-explanatory.

Dive Log

I needed new pages for my dive log and rather than buy some overpriced pages printed on paper that is nearly impossible to write on, I decided to make my own. The log has space for a dive profile, some summary information, comments, your cumulative bottom time, and a verification signature.

Usage advice: 

Print, punch and use just like your normal dive log. This template only has a simple single level dive profile on it, I may get around to creating one with a multi-level profile one of these days but since I don't have the equipment to do those calculations it's not super high on my to-do list.
