The Mood Meter app is a tool that helps build emotional awareness and regulation. Based on the Mood Meter tool, developed by Marc Brackett at the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence as part of the RULER program, this app invites users to check in with their emotional state throughout the day.

Within the app, users plot how they are feeling on a map, reflect on reasons for feeling this way, and are provided with strategies (in the form of actions they could take, quotes and images) that they could use to shift the way they feel, if desired. Using this app, a user is able to get a picture of how they feel over time, and gain a better understanding of their emotional patterns.

Educators can use this app to track their emotional states during the day, and reflect on how this affects their teaching practices.
