Do you feel stressed, anxious, sad, frustrated, or unmotivated? The centerpiece of cognitive-behavioral therapy is changing your emotions by identifying negative and distorted thinking patterns. With this thought diary, you can document your negative emotions, analyze flaws in your thinking, and reevaluate your thoughts. It may even help you recognize ways to deal with your negative behaviors and emotions.

According to positive psychology, practicing gratitude and recording positive emotions is important as well. Thought Diary also allows you to keep track of your positive experiences so that you can refer back to them and appreciate the good moments, as well as note down what particular things you're grateful for. This way, you can be more aware and thankful of the positive moments in life.

Thought Diary will help you evaluate, understand, and change your thoughts and feelings. By using this application, you can work to identify your emotions, analyze how and why you're feeling this way, challenge those negative beliefs, change your thinking patterns for future situations, and remember positive experiences. You can use this app as a mood journal, a thought record journal, and a gratitude journal.

Thought Records and Gratitude Journals similar to this app are commonly used in paper form in traditional cognitive-behavioral therapy for a variety of mental health disorders such as clinical depression and anxiety. If you are suffering from a mental health disorder, please consult a mental health professional or healthcare provider.

Pretty Good

Would love if there was an “outcome” form field that let you record how you feel after the entry.. not just before.

Other than that, I think it does the job.

Good app. Poor customer support

I purchased the pro version and had to download it separately on my IPAD and IPhone. The app doesn’t sync between these devices and I am not sure if it is supposed to do this or if I have set something up incorrectly - there is a sync option in the app. 3-days ago I reached out via contact us button in app to ask how to sync between devices or if this is even possible. I have not heard anything back.

Changing my life!

I have CPTSD and have struggled with unhealthy thinking patterns and unwanted emotional reactions. I couldn’t trust my own feelings because I didn’t know where they were coming from (current situation or something from a past trauma). This app has honestly changed my life in less than two weeks. It started changing my quality of life the first time I used it. I am learning so much about my thoughts and feelings and I’m learning how to reframe things into more productive and healthy ways. I highly recommend this for anyone struggling with CPTSD. I can’t believe it’s free, I have made more progress with this app than any other service I’ve tried. Thank you so much for creating this app and for the way you’re changing lives for the better with it. ❤️🙂
