The Depression Hacker’s Toolbox: Day One Journal App

Day One is my journal of choice. It’s a real functional app that, with some effort, can become a tool in your toolbox against depression. The ease of use and beautiful design make it a joy to journal with, and it made sticking to my journaling habit so much easier.

Dumping Ground

Helpful Apps to Make You a More Mindful Entrepreneur

Day One Journal for me has basically become a free-form dumping ground for whatever thoughts and emotions have been welling-up in my body and mind throughout the day. I’m finding the exercise of journaling to be a fantastic pressure release valve to push toward the end of each day.

“When you wake up … you write for 10 minutes, and you just go. Whatever is on your mind, your dreams, your anxieties for the day,” she said. “(Cameron) believes that what this does is free you up to do your writing.”

depression

From an anonymous user:

I have manic-depression/bipolar illness, and keeping a mood diary is very important for my treatment. If I can “check in” a few times a day, I have data for my psychiatrist and myself that can save me from a manic or depressive episode “sneaking up on me.” But carrying a paper notebook around is usually too much trouble and so I end up not recording information that would help my treatment. But I always have my phone with me, so it is effortless to capture this data, especially since I set up the reminder app on my phoe to beep at me and remind me to check in.
