Which way do you notice your emotions first?
You literally feel the situation. It may take the form of a chill from a thrill, shaking in anger, a flutter of excitement, the flush of embarrassment, spinning confusion, jittery impatience, churning unease, etc.
You possess a natural affinity toward intuitive decision-making. You also gather a great deal of information from others' body language, whether aware or not, which influences your interactions.
However, communicating these feelings may present some difficulty. If so, the Mindful Feelings Pocket Tracker gives you practice translating emotional sensations into words that help you better express your needs and wishes to others.
You think things through. Although, sometimes you say what you think out loud before you get a chance to filter it. More introverted thinkers may hang onto a feeling for hours or even days.
You carry deep connections between your thoughts and the feelings that flow through them. A knack for self-expression and sensitivity to the nuance in what others say lead to rich conversations.
The Mindful Feelings Pocket Tracker challenges you to dig below the surface of intense feelings. Identifying emotional triggers puts you in control of your feelings to direct them more constructively, or let them pass when they don't serve you.
This journal is also for you if...
- You wish to explore why specific situations affect your mood in a certain way

What are some of the benefits of journaling?
Journaling provides many mental health benefits including
How often should I write in the Mindful Feelings Pocket Tracker journal?
That's entirely up to you! Typically, we recommend establishing a baseline of your mood by recording your feelings at least 3 times per day for 2-4 weeks. After that, maintaining a habit of journaling once a day will ensure you catch any patterns in your mood related to your daily routine or changes to it.
If you want to find the root cause of a particular feeling, journal about it whenever it occurs. Otherwise, recording any strong emotions, either positive or negative, in the moment will lead you to a better understanding of why you felt it so intensely.
How many entries does the Mindful Feelings Pocket Tracker accommodate?
Record up to 180 individual emotional experiences. If you write in the journal 3 times a day, the journal should last you about 60 days.
However, more typical use entails recording your feelings 3 times a day for the first month to set a baseline and once a day thereafter. This schedule would take you about 4 months to fill the journal.
Plus, there are 3 pages designated for freewriting about whatever you like. Ultimately, how quickly you use up the journal will depend on the consistency of your journaling habit.
