Designing self-monitoring technologies for emotional self-awareness and wellbeing

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

In order to sustain and improve our wellbeing we must be aware of our emotions and what triggers them. In my dissertation I propose to design and develop a self-monitoring mobile application that allows people to express and better understand their affective states, in a fun and engaging way. Through this tool I intend to explore how creative expression techniques, such as photography and painting, can be used to improve emotional self-awareness and to foster engagement.
