All right, Venturers, for this weeks challenge I did a mental check-in every day. I try to take my mental health very seriously. I have a bunch of self care things that I try to keep up with doing. Keeping track of my mood and recognizing the reasons I feel things is one of the number one things that I want to make apart of my daily routine.
So, this week I used an app called Youper. It’s an AI that asks you how you’re feeling, why you’re feeling that way, and then you can dive into why you’re feeling that way, or do some other tasks. My goal this week, was to note my mood, state what was contributing to my mood, and then follow any suggestions from the AI. In general, this was just notating the specifics of why I was feeling a certain way, kind of like a diary.
I’m proud to say that I was able to check-in with myself every single day. It’s actually really easy to find the time to notate how I was feeling every day. If Little P is fussing, I could still hold and comfort her while inputting how I was feeling.
On top of how easy it was, it was nice being able to get stuff off of my chest. Sometimes I don’t like complaining about things because it’s small and I know how small it is, but I still like being able to just complain about it. I got to write out how I was feeling and then move on.
I don’t necessarily feel any better, but it’s nice learning my triggers. I feel more in tune with myself now than I ever had in my life. Now, I wish I could just do this in a journal. I really like physically writing out how I’m doing and what happened that day, but for some reason I can’t keep up with it like that. There’s something about it being in app form that helps me keep up with it.
