  • How to Track Your Mental Health

    If you’re looking to improve your mental health and overall well-being, one of the best things you can do is track how you’re feeling. Not only does this allow you to identify any issues you might be experiencing and set goals for how to resolve them, but it can also help you analyze how you’re progressing toward those goals. Here are some tips for how to track your mental health:

    • Use the tracking method that will work best for you. For example, some people enjoy the ritual of writing in a paper journal, while others prefer the convenience offered by a digital app.
    • Schedule a time to track how you’re feeling each day. For example, you could do it after dinner or before bedtime. If you have trouble remembering to do it, you may want to set a reminder alarm.
    • Find a comfortable space that’s free of distractions.
    • If you find it difficult to explain how you’re feeling overall, try focusing on specific indicators like appetite, energy, mood, sleep, and stress.
    • Set SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound) goals. For example, rather than simply saying that you want to feel less anxious, say that you’ll spend 10 minutes meditating each morning for the next month.
    • Focus on one goal at a time. Otherwise, you may end up feeling overwhelmed, which could impede your progress.
