MoodKit vs. eMoods
MoodKit is an app that utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques to help users apply effective strategies of professional psychology into their everyday life. It offers many features including activities, a thought checker, mood tracker, and journal.
The Mood Tracker allows users to log how they are feeling on any given day. Users can rate their mood on a scale of 1 through 10, 1 being the “Worst it’s ever been” and 10 being the “Best it’s ever been”. The results are plotted on a chart that’s shareable via email.
The Activities section provides a range of activities a user can commit to. There are categories like productivity, social, and healthy habits. Inside each category are instructions for an activity such as, “Reach out to someone you’ve fallen out of touch with.” The Thoughts section asks the user a question and then a series of follow up questions to help them understand their emotions. The Journal section is a place for users to write about whatever is on their mind and also offers prompts.
