How I use the Daylio app to ensure my life is in balance. I’m on 472 days…and counting

Have you heard of the DAYLIO app? I’m in love with this little app – and you should be too. In this article I tell you what Daylio is and how I use it to improve my life. My goal in doing so is to introduce you what I believe is a great product (and best of all it’s FREE) – my hope is that Daylio can make a real difference in your life too.

What is Daylio?

Daylio is an easy to use mobile app that allows you to track your moods and daily activities. With regular use (as little as 5 days) you’ll start getting feedback reports that reveal trends which can help you identify the connection between what activities you do when you feel great and what’s happening in your life when you have bad days.

Here’s how I use Daylio

I use for track my daily moods and activities. It’s easy to use, it’s free, and you can modify the activities to fit your needs. It allows me to rate how I felt each day (awesome, good, average, not good, awful) AND it lets me get granular with specific activities – would you believe I’m currently tracking 80+ different daily activities? Ha, if you know me at all, this probably does’t surprise you. Daylio makes it so easy (it takes just a few seconds to toggle on/off what you did that day and/or add/modify activities to suit your own system) and because it’s so easy/quick to use, it provides an efficient way for me to keep an on-the-go de-facto daily journal about life. Add to that the fact that you can also include free text notes for each day (if you want to) and now you’re talking.

What I love about this app is that is shows me trends – for the day, month, and even the year. This allows me to VISUALLY SEE if I am living a life that’s in balance or if I’m too heavy in one area vs another. I’ve used this app every single day this year and the feedback it’s providing is invaluable!

BONUS – My 8year old son Jax is now also addicted to tracking his day with this great little app.
