Are you thinking of starting a mood tracker?
A mood tracker is a great way to keep you aware and more in tune of how you feel everyday.
I know artistic design is not needed to make your bullet journal useful, but the colors sure add to the inspiration, and to the feeling that life is still good amidst its trials and complications.
So without further ado, here is a collection of bullet journal mood trackers that you can try and copy in your own bullet journal.
1. Year in Pixels
This is the first type of mood tracker layout that I encountered on Pinterest. What’s so great about Year in Pixels is you can take a look at how you have felt everyday for a year in just a glance.
Most mood tracker pages have space only for a month. But Year in Pixels has the whole year covered.
A watermelon mood tracker is an incredibly easy-to-draw layout.
Take this one, for example. All you need to draw is a big triangle. Then simply trace lines inside to divide the triangle into the days of the month.
I don’t know about you, but this also makes me feel like I want to grab a watermelon!
Now, if you don’t want a really big triangle, you can draw small watermelons for each day.
Lights are bright.
When you’re in a great mood, it can make you feel even brighter.
Now when you are downhearted, it may not change your situation, but, lights, especially colorful ones, may just make you feel lighter.
4. Heavenly Lights
If artificial lights can lighten up your mood, how much more when it’s natural lights?
We find these shimmering at night – stars, moon and planets, brightening up the sky.
When you feel stressed after all the day’s work, you can take some time to gaze at the night sky, and feel relaxed and refreshed.
In your bullet journal, you can recreate the same feeling when drawing and coloring these lights. And even if you can’t see them in the sky because of clouds, you will still see them in your mind, through your mood tracker.
Ghosts make me feel spooky and a little bit scared. Yeah even if they’re flashing their cutest smile!
So just to make things clear, I have no plans of putting ghost drawings in my bullet journal.
But, you may not feel the way I feel. For you, it could even be the exact opposite.
So here’s one.
And here’s another, inspired by the video game Pac-Man.
Yesss… the love feeling!
Do you also feel like there’s a lot of love in the air when there are heart shapes floating around?
Be inspired to become a more loving person with this mood tracker layout.
Here’s another which I really love – a tree of hearts.
It’s like this drawing is telling us that we should not let the love die in our hearts, no matter how we feel.
Even if life strikes us really hard, we should not give up on love. We must always strive to make it grow, like a blossoming tree.
Here’s one more that’s similar to it – a blooming flower of hearts.
I can imagine myself eating a cupcake. It’s soft, sweet and yummy! Hmmm…….
Cupcake is a nice mood tracker because it reminds you of the sweetness of life and you too can be sweet. Although, I must say, it might also make you feel hungry. (Wink)
Here is another sweet treat for you!
When I search for a mood tracker on Pinterest, it comes up, and I get pulled… like I wanna eat a doughnut.
9. Ice Cream
You love ice cream?
Yeah… me too.
It feels happy when you eat ice cream, right? I guess it’s also one of your go-to foods when you’re stressed out and need a break.
So here’s one for your mood tracker.
I like pencils! It’s what I use to draft a doodle in my bullet journal.
When I’m using a pencil to draw, I feel like it’s okay to make mistakes because I can just erase it.
And that’s why I like this mood tracker. It reminds me that it’s okay to make mistakes.
Healthy and soothing, right?
Smell the tea’s aroma with this mood tracker.
Okay… you won’t really smell the tea by drawing it. I’m just messing up with you. (Smile)
Here’s another drink that a lot of you may love! This also reminds me of my hubby because he loves drinking coffee.
Be inspired by your love for coffee and turn that into a mood tracker.
Even if you are not a coffee lover, you can experiment with this coffee design. Because unlike the real coffee, this one’s something you don’t need to drink. Just draw it.
Do you enjoy putting puzzle pieces together?
Here’s a mood tracker like it, to remind us that life can be like a puzzle sometimes.
There are times when we are hit by setbacks again and again. We question why in the world are these happening to us.
Oftentimes we don’t know the answer. But when the journey is over and we look back, that’s when we figure it out.
Take a puzzle piece as a stand-alone object and it doesn’t make sense. But when it gets connected to the other pieces, then it starts to make sense.
This isn’t really all leaves. There’s a big circle at the middle.
But it sure is beautiful and very relaxing to the eyes with the green-colored leaves around it.
Raindrops are cool – a simple reminder for you to keep your cool, especially when you’re in a situation that makes you feel angry.
It’s time to make your mood tracker.
With all these designs at your fingertips, I hope you have found an inspiration to make your own.
Choose a design that you will love to update everyday. Because, no matter how beautiful your mood tracker is, if you don’t update it, it’s useless.
Also, may your mood tracker help you see that life is a combination of ups and downs.
We have no problem when we feel good and happy. But when we feel down and sad, we think and act like nothing good ever happen to us.
So when you feel downhearted, take a look at your mood tracker and notice that even if there are times when you feel lonely, stressed out and heartbroken, there are still days when you feel happy and relaxed.
Therefore, we can’t treat life like nothing good is ever going to happen. And we also can’t expect that only good things should happen.
Life is like a coin. There are two sides to it. And everybody gets both.
