About this app


CBT Thought Diary is a journal with a purpose: it uses effective tools from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Positive Psychology to help improve your mood.

Do you feel like you're always stressed, anxious, sad, frustrated, or unmotivated? The centerpiece of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is learning to identify negative and distorted thinking patterns to change your emotions and your behaviors for the better. In CBT, a "thought record" guides you through the steps of identifying, challenging, and reinterpreting negative thinking patterns. With Thought Diary, you can document your negative emotions, analyze flaws in your thinking, and re-evaluate your negative thoughts into more balanced ones. It may even help you recognize helpful ways to deal with your negative behaviors and emotions for future situations.

CBT Thought Diary can do more than thought records, though! It can also be used as a daily mood tracker. You can even practice gratitude by creating positive entries using our flexible diary entry format. According to positive psychology, appreciating the positives in our lives can improve happiness and meaning.
With CBT Thought Diary, you can gradually change your approach to how you interpret the ups and downs of life, making long-lasting changes in your mental well-being.

According to positive psychology, practicing gratitude and recording positive emotions is important as well. Thought Diary also allows you to keep track of your positive experiences so that you can refer back to them and appreciate the good moments, as well as note down what particular things you're grateful for. This way, you can be more aware and thankful of the positive moments in life.

Thought Diary will help you evaluate, understand, and change your thoughts and feelings. By using this application, you can work to identify your emotions, analyze how and why you're feeling this way, challenge those negative beliefs, change your thinking patterns for future situations, and remember positive experiences. You can use this app as a mood journal, a thought record journal, and a gratitude journal.

Thought Records and Gratitude Journals similar to this app are commonly used in paper form in traditional cognitive-behavioral therapy for a variety of mental health disorders such as clinical depression and anxiety. If you are suffering from a mental health disorder, please consult a mental health professional or healthcare provider.

Cloud sync does not work between devices and since I'm paying for this, it should work. I just lost an entry because I accidentally backed up the wrong device that didn't have all the entries, and then restored that back up to my device that did have all the entries, thus deleting my most recent entry. I realize this is my fault, however, if cloud sync worked properly, I wouldn't have to manually back up my entries and risk losing them through the same mistake. Plz fix this.

Journaling has always been difficult for me, however the guides in this app make it feel more like I'm having a conversation with my therapist. While I'm already familiar with much of the material presented, there really isn't any way to overstate the benefits of reviewing these concepts from time to time. Caring for mental health problems will never be a one and done ordeal, and this app really helps to keep skills I need to practice at the forefront of my mind.

I used to use a different CBT app but it gave a lot of technical difficulties. Although it is good I couldn't stand the crashing anymore. It's been a blessing in disguise because I got this app as a replacement and it is really useful and helpful. There is a lot more to it that just being a thought diary. You can learn about all kinds of coping skills across many areas in life.
