Did you know that one of the best ways to take care of your mental health is to track your mood regularly? Mood trackers are a simple but powerful tool that can help you understand your mood swings and later on, help you maintain a more consistent mood. And you can keep one through bullet journaling!
Bullet journals are a popular organizational tool. It helps you keep track of everything and mood trackers are just part of it.
If you look up bullet journals, you may feel intimidated by all the art and colors – especially when you are not an artist. But minimalist bullet journals are actually simple and neat. Even the busiest adults can maintain a minimalist bullet journal.
If you want to keep track of your mood through a BuJo, and you want it done in the simplest layout possible, check out these mood tracker ideas with minimalist designs!
1. Line mood tracker
This minimalist mood tracker is very simple and easy to maintain. It works like a line graph.
The days of the month are on the side, and you draw three faces on the bottom. Each face represents a mood – sad, neutral, and happy. All you have to do is draw a line up to the face that represents the mood you are in for the day.
2. Line and dots
This minimalist mood tracker started out as simple dots. The intention was to just color the dots in.
