15 Mood Tracker Ideas
1. Minimalist Mood Tracker
Minimalist mood trackers are great ideas for anyone who doesn’t have much time, or if you’re just getting started with your mood trackers.
With just a black fineliner pen and a blank page, this minimalist dandelion mood tracker is a good example of how you can turn a simple idea into a really effective design to track your moods effectively.
As you start to shade each heart, you’ll see that even tracking your gloomy days can add a splash of color to your simple mood tracker spreads.
2. Somewhere Over The Rainbow
This is a lovely monthly mood tracker, and another minimalist spread.
This spread fits perfectly on a single page and it’s simple design makes it a mood tracker idea that anyone can have fun creating.
A key of bright colors to match your rainbow will leave you with a stunning, pastel-colored page in your Journal.
3. Picture Perfect
This polaroid themed mood tracker is a really fun idea, capturing your overall mood, instead of images.
Once you have decided on the color code for your key, you can start shading in your polaroid images at the end of each day.
4. Light Up Your Life
This light-bulb themed mood tracker idea is definitely one of our favorite mood trackers.
These hanging light bulbs give a sense of hope and brightness to any bad mood you might have experienced that day.
Even the large key itself at the bottom of the page, is playing its part in adding a splash of brightness to this mood journal page.
5. When Life Gives You Lemons
A bright and refreshing, citrus-themed mood tracker is a really fun way to make your mood tracker entries.
Different shades of yellow in the key depict a range of moods from happy to sad, but instead of words, it uses simple and fun icons of facial expressions that are a cute way to mix up your key ideas.
6. Tree Top Tracker
We love these tree bullet journal mood tracker ideas.
Despite being simple to create, adding small doodles to your mood tracker page are one of the more creative ways to personalize your spreads.
Each tree will only need a black fineliner and a few seconds to create, but by the time you finish, your page will look alive with wintery warmth.
7. Beautiful Bujo Supplies
This fun idea just goes to show – you can create a mood tracker based on any of your hobbies or interests, just label them as days of the month, choose your color code and you’re off!
There is no better way for Bullet Journalists to personalize their mood tracker pages. The only limit here is your own imagination…
8. Avocado Creation
This January, Avocado mood tracker is all about starting the year the right way.
But let’s be honest, healthy food alongside a sleep log, is perfect for any time of year.
Looking at your daily moods alongside your quality of sleep is a good idea, as sleep plays such an important role in sleep quality, and vice versa.
Looking back at the end of the month at any direct links between the two, will help you to see if you can make any adjustments to improve your quality of life.
9. Anyone For Ice Cream?
Good moods, bad moods, happy, sad. All of these emotions are possible in a single day, and these habit tracker ideas are a good way of capturing the range of feelings that you can experience each day.
You can see here, the mood tracker spread takes its place alongside a habit tracker spread, (much like our sleep log earlier), helps you see your mood alongside your healthy routines.
Maybe you missed some study time or your daily walk and now it’s made you feel stressed. These pictures can paint a thousand words and help you towards a more healthy balance of time.
10. Out Of This World
You can have an absolute blast, creating this zero-gravity mood tracker.
A dotted bullet journal will help you space-out (sorry), your stars, planets and rockets evenly, making it even easier for you to create this really fun mood tracker idea.
Each component is simple to draw, but the overall effect is out of this world! (Again, sorry).
11. Beacon Of Light
Be your own beacon of light, with this stunning lighthouse-themed, Bullet Journal mood tracker.
