Those mornings when you wake up feeling like you don’t have the energy to get out of bed. Or those days you jump up, throwing back the covers, feeling as if the world is at your feet! Wow! What a difference. But those moods, how they change, and what might have caused them are important to track for mental health. Hence, free printable mood trackers.
This printable is something I wouldn’t have thought of myself. I saw a Facebook post that someone was looking for one. So I decided to go ahead and make up my own. There are four different mood charts below, each with their own features.
I’m bipolar myself and having a mood journal is something I’ve had therapist recommend. I admit I’ve never actually gotten around to it…but I can see the benefits.
There are four trackers free below (no email required)…but you might also be interested in the bundle of mood trackers I have just for subscribers. Just fill out the form below to get 10 different mood trackers and reviews!

My Free Printable Mood Tracker Binder has more and better options. I highly suggest signing up for it. You can use the form above or the link in this paragraph.
I also have a paid product, Mood Tracker Printables, that is over 26 pages of mood trackers. (Hint: if you sign up for the free binder first, there should be an offer at the bottom of the thank you page to save a little on the paid binder.)
UMICH has a resource “Behavioral Activity for Depression” that goes into how behavior and mood can affect each other. If you’re interested in some of the medical side of it, you might find it interesting.
The Depression & Bipolar Support Alliance has educational information as well an online support group. There were/are also local groups? (I think).

Instructions for mood trackers
Instructions for printing:
• Print options: regular paper works!
• All of the files are in pdf below. Just hit the download button.
• The default size of these is full-page. However, if you want smaller, simply reduce the print size! If you’re looking on how to resize printables, check out my post: “How to Resize Printables to Fit Your Planner.“
Instructions for use:
• Pick which tracker you like and use one at a time. I wouldn’t suggest trying to use a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly at once.
• If a tracker isn’t working for you, try a different one.
• Set aside a time of day to fill out tracker. If it’s a regular habit, you’re more likely to continue using it. And discover important trends.
• Fill out as soon as possible. If you try to look back a week later, you’re likely to either overestimate or underestimate the mood you experienced that day.
Free Printable Mood Tracker
This is a tracker for an entire year. In the little boxes before the mood, scribble in the color of your choice. Then color the dominant mood of the day into the appropriate day box. I made this one because sometimes it’s easier to see trends with colors instead of just a jumble of numbers.
This mood chart is for a single month. This is for those who are dealing with multiple emotions throughout the day and want to keep a more detailed log. There are bunch of pre-filled out moods and plenty of spots to add other moods (or other items you want to track). On this tracker, you’ll put a check mark for every mood you feel during the day. So you might have multiple checks for a single day.
Old mood trackers
These are the old trackers. As you can see, they have the same form & function as the ones above. The only difference is the decorations.
Which do you like best?
I did my best to come up with mood trackers that provide for a variety of needs. But if you see a better one out there, let me know! I’m always looking to improve what I provide.
Feel free to comment below with which mood tracker you liked the most!
