Self-tracking may be all the rage, but keeping a log of the things you like and appreciate in life is nothing new. 3-Minute Journal helps you maintain this ancient practice of self-reflection with sweet charts and bar graphs.
The site is simple: Add an event, provide a brief description, answer a couple of questions, such as how long you’ll remember it and what type of event it was. 3-Minute Journal will then add it to your data pool. Under the “Lab” tab, you can get some analysis of how good your days are going and how often you experience accomplishments, mistakes or things you’re grateful for.
While it might seem cheesy to express your thankfulness with a dropdown box, getting into the habit of showing gratitude can have positive effects on your mood. And what better way to help you gain some perspective on how good (or not!) your life really is than with charts?
