I recently picked up The Happy Planner Mini – Hello Beautiful. At first I didn’t know what I was going to use it for, then it came to me, a mood tracker. This planner starts in 2017, but I got the 6 month extension pack so I could use it now. As you all know I have BPD and my moods shift a lot throughout the day, so I wanted to keep track of my moods, and the time to see if I notice a pattern.
I have to say using this planner for almost 2 weeks, is working well for me. Its the perfect size, and I’m being productive by writing down my moods as soon as I see a change.
My writing is horrible, but I’ll let you know that I have noticed a pattern in my moods! Between the hours of 2:30 and 6ish I become very irritable. With BPD, anything can trigger a mood change, so its hard to figure out why I’m irritable. I have some ideas. Its the time my kids come home, homework, cooking, tidying up ect. I think I’m overwhelmed at these hours, but I wouldn’t have known this if I weren’t tracking my moods
So now that I see a pattern, its up to me to change it. I need to spread things out and not pull myself in different directions. Im glad I got this planner for this, I think it’s really going to help me.
How many of you have the mini planners? Let me know in the comments!
