    Pros: 

    Very easy way to track my mood throughout the day.

    Cons: 

    The default settings felt like they asked me a bit frequently, I increased the timing in the settings.

    I've been using Thyself for the last month or so, it's really interesting to see how my mood changes throughout the day (and help me identify what makes me unhappy).

  • Pros: 

    love the simplicity and the fact that Fraser is so responsive and helpful!

    Cons: 

    would love a mobile version of this too!

    I have been testing the Chrome extension for more than a month and I find it useful to monitor mood swings.

Ever since I met Fraser last year he's been working on products and meetups that improve our interaction with the tech that is so intermingled with our modern day-to-day lives. Thyself is yet another addition to his work in this area. As someone who has seen the detrimental effects of mental health gone wrong I love to see anything that helps us become more self-aware of our mental state so we can be better placed to nurture a healthy one. It's surprising just how valuable self-reflection can be.

Thanks for hunting @fredrivett! 💜 No better time to share this than during Mental Health Awareness Week. Thyself was originally created to scratch my own itch. As a maker, I've experienced the rollercoaster ride of emotions and I wanted to understand it better. With Thyself, I understand the ups and downs better. I've found Thyself most useful for removing the recency bias in how I perceive my week to be going – late in the day my mood could be down but I forgot that the rest of the day was great. I hope someone else finds it useful. Any feedback is appreciated.

Cool approach @fraserdeans . I'm going to test it for a while and see if it's helpful. Would be interesting to see if I can capture and find my mood quite easily with all those emoji. I'm going to find it out :)
