Decent diary

It’s a simple app for recording moods but it could do with a more balanced end-sheet so that if your mood is happiness and it increases, there’s a positive message of encouragement, rather than just focusing on what do do if it’s a negative result.
I did find it helpful for a quick capture & reframing of negative thoughts but it could do with more examples of solutions or methods like breathing and emergency stuff to break the cycles of panic or anxiety. If you’ve already had cbt previously that was successful then this might help you remember the good tips and refocus.

Good app, great idea, needs more flexible editing

Only used it a couple of times. Looks a great idea as it prompts you a analyse your own emotions and is simple to use. However it treats positive emotion scores the same way as negative emotions, for example if you achieve a higher strength relaxation after doing something good, it says “oh that’s a pity…”. On the editing side, it would be great if you could go back in and edit an entry or even delete the entry. The only option you get is to delete all entries.

I personally feel like this app will help anyone who suffers from anxiety/depression or even if you’re an overthinker like myself. Because I won’t talk to people about my emotions, this app allows me to get it off my chest in a viewable format instead where I can see my past emotions, log it and learn from it. The first time I used this, straight afterwards I felt so much better and no one had to know I was upset apart from me!
