MindCare helps you to understand your feelings better in everyday life.
Think about which feelings weigh you down in day-to-day life and which feelings you would like to develop. Choose a maximum of the three most important ones to track.
Use the MindCare app to help you record your activities several times each day, along with the corresponding emotions. This might annoy you a little at first, but over time you’ll be able to see which activities are good for you and which can trigger uncomfortable feelings. This will help you to find out which activities you should integrate into your daily routine and to understand better how different emotions develop.
If you are currently receiving psychotherapy, discuss with your therapist how you could use the app as part of the therapy.
Which emotions should I record?
The general rule is to record all emotions that you would like to change in some way. If you want to reduce tension or anxiety, keep an eye on these emotions in the app. If you want to improve your current mood or find out what makes you feel happy, make a record of these emotions.
If you're not sure which emotions are relevant for you, or you find it difficult to label your different emotions, then choose several emotions to track. Regular surveys from the app will help you train your ability to label emotions and you will soon recognise which emotions you need to keep track of.
