Has a therapist ever told you to keep track of your mood? Have you seen journals marketed towards keeping track of how you feel? Do you just want a way to keep an organized log of your days on your phone? Whenever I have tried to keep track of my day to day, I end up losing motivation. That was until I found the app, Daily Bean

The beauty of Daily Bean is that it’s on my phone so I can log my information anywhere at any time. There are cute smiley faces, or beans, that measure if you’re feeling great, good, neutral, meh, or bad. You can also add other aspects of your day like whether you drank coffee, hung out with friends, or had your period. There are customizable options for what to include so you can track habits. This can help you find habits that trigger bad moods or good moods that you might miss. 

Daily Bean has endless possibilities. It shows your month in beans and a linear graph of your ups and downs. You can also add up to three pictures and write about what happened each day. There is a free version that has less options, but I still think you could get a great benefit out of the things they provide. I have the paid version which is about $12 for the year. I have found this to be a small price to pay for the convenience and consistency of tracking my day to day life; especially since I have never been able to before. 

If you’re interested in checking it out, Daily Bean is free for mobile download. Here’s the link to check it out!
