MindSet Web App Design
MindSet is a mood and habit tracking web app that helps users manage their stress by allowing them to track their weekly schedule (calendar data), to-do lists, habits, and other factors that affect their mood (such as exercise, amount of sleep, caffeine intake, etc.).
Based on that data, the app makes suggestions for what the user should do each week to help improve their mood, such as: take a 20 minute nap on certain days, limit caffeine intake, sit in the sun, etc.
Inspiration for this app came from my personal experiences and the idea of promoting self-care, as well the quantified body movement, which aims to use data to hack health and fitness.
This app experience was designed as a class project for the Interaction Design I course at Northeastern University.
This app went through a series of iterations; I originally wanted to create a mental health tracker that could function as a therapy tool, but after user testing I decided to focus on users who want a simple, flexible way to manage their mood and well-being on a day-to-day basis.
