Tracking your mood can help you better understand trends in your life through your emotions and state of mind. Our moods fluctuate day-to-day, or even hour to hour. Tracking your feelings helps to identify what activities or triggers may have the greatest positive or negative impact on your mood and how it affects the rest of your day.
