You Can Log Your Moods and Emotions in iOS 17

The iOS 17 Health app introduces a new feature that allows you to keep track of your emotions and moods over time, so you can get an idea of your overall mental wellbeing.

ios 17 mood logging
With the ‌iOS 17‌ Health app, you can quickly make a note of your state of mind each day. There's an option to choose a feeling ranging from Very Unpleasant to Very Pleasant, and then a list of words that you can use to hone in on your general mood.

From there, you can select a reason for the way that you're feeling, such as work, partner, hobbies, money, health, family, and more. Logging a mood takes just a few seconds, and the Health app will aggregate the data over time.

Mood logging can also be done on an Apple Watch running watchOS 10 through the Mindfulness app. On the watch, if you open up the Mindfulness app, there's a new "Log State of Mind" option. Tapping it lets you log how you're feeling right now or how you've felt throughout the day.

Apple says that it also plans to link your mood reports to your activities like Workouts and sleep so you can see what might have an impact, plus the company plans to provide standardized mental health assessments so you can see your risk for anxiety or depression.

I have brain and spinal column damage with pain and some some mood issues as a result. This is going to be amazing for sharing with my doctors.

One of my frequent challenges is that I sometimes feel so horrible, I cannot journal how horrible I feel. This will remedy that situation.

I can then share with my doctors at my appointments to give them additional data points for them to help find solutions for my overall wellness and hopefully continue to heal and improve over the extended long-term.

Now - if this could sync via Apple Health back to AllScripts/Epic/Cerner/Catails for my doctors to have access to? Even better.

Update: Apple has now approved the app after an appeal. Thanks for your input everyone who commented. As you can imagine I was alarmed about what had happened, especially given the timing, but should have waited for the official response first. Original tweets have been deleted. Apologies for any confusion caused.

Everyone needs to log their mood to iOS 17 after they spend $3,500 on Apple Vision Pro in early 2024.
