📈Mood Journaling to become more Happier,more Successful
Life is filled with highs and lows—we all ride the wave up and down from one day to the next.
“The man who has no ups and downs, he is no more.”
When we get too high, we're prone to getting knocked down. When we get too low, we find it impossible to get back up.
Mood Journaling is a simple, daily practice that can have a dramatic long-term impact on our ability to control our Amplitude of ups & downs.
How It Works?
Every morning, right when you wake up, grab a small pocket notebook and pen. Note: I keep mine on my bedside table so I can do it from bed.
Ask yourself one tiny question: How do I feel right now? give it a point on a scale of 0 to 10.
Don’t give yourself time to think about it—go with your gut reaction. Write down a number (and be honest!). For clarity, assume 5 is a baseline neutral point.
Once you've written down a number, ask yourself two quick follow-up questions:
Why do I feel this way?
What is driving these feelings?
This is the most difficult part of the exercise, but it’s also the most critical.
Ruthless honesty is key. I spend 3-5 minutes to deconstruct the reasons I am feeling great, good, neutral, or bad on any given morning. The idea is to break down your mood and understand the drivers of positive or negative swings in your personal wave.
After you’ve collected enough data (usually after one week), zoom out and review the trends:
What is consistently making me feel bad? Are there people, projects, or activities that are creating negative energy in my life on a consistent basis? If so, these need to be eliminated, reduced, or delegated.
What is consistently making me feel good? Are there people, projects, or activities that are creating positive energy in my life on a consistent basis? If so, these need to be amplified.
By deconstructing the atomic level of
how you feel, you can start to take deliberate action to reduce the amplitude and trend in the right direction.
Amplify what improves your mood—eliminate what harms it.
I wish your improvement. :)
