Top SaaS solutions for teams coping under pressure


Keeping a record of your emotions can be helpful in learning how to manage them. It’s a habit that might be useful for anyone feeling at sea in the new working environment. There is a whole host of specialist software that offers useful prompts for mood tracking, which founders could encourage teams to try.

This mood-tracking app boasts a very strong UX, with users able to almost entirely customise the app to cater to personal taste. Bar those shown at opt-in, there are no ads on the app. Documented emotions show up as colour-coded graphics in monthly and annual charts, helping to track a pattern of mood across time.


This Eagle Labs startup was inspired by a mother looking for a way to check in with how her daughter was feeling, even when apart. Users wear a bracelet with two buttons, which correspond to a good mood or a sad one. The wearable tech then syncs to Moodbeam’s app, logging data and building a mood diary that can be shared with loved ones.


This app combines mood-tracking patterns with a typical journal tool. Users record both their mood and the activities they took part in on a given day, with the option to add additional notes. As Daylio points out, this is much like “an old-school diary”. The difference is that the app can turn data into accessible and intelligent charts to display a user’s statistics and log a pattern of behaviour.


iMoodJournal also collects multiple data points. Users can track whatever they choose, from sleep and energy levels to medication. The tracking tool itself is excellent, converting data into a mood history chart. It recommends recording mood several times a day, which may be a downside for someone new to mood tracking, but does produce useful insight as a result.


This app could be useful for anyone who finds setting goals to be a helpful way of managing stress. MoodKit says that its tools are based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and is divided into four sections to track activity, mood, thoughts and a journal separately. The app also suggests a variety of activities that are known to improve overall wellbeing, which users can note down to try.
