Capture mood via Health and Apple Watch

Mental health is just as important as physical health. Research shows that paying attention to your state of mind can have a positive effect on your emotional awareness and resilience. You can easily record your state of mind via the Health or Mindfulness app.

Using your iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch you can capture emotions and daily moods. Over time you will be able to see your state of mind at a glance and anticipate it.
