This is my first post, based on my discovery of this site and these groups. I was in the middle of trying to figure out a way to quantify my self for my own mood tracking. After reading many of the posts, I am wondering if the process of quantifying one's self is actually a motivator, an inhibitor, or a distraction from working through situations and their effect on one's mood. Seeing this site and mass of information is exciting and makes me 'feel' energized about the act of tracking myself and possibly getting some answers to questions about myself. However, I can foresee spending so much time on the process that I never get to the end goal, of really determining my mood rhythms and affects, and finding a way to work on improving my mood.
Is this a typical response to the concept of the quantified self? Am I just 'feeling' overwhelmed?
