Ran across this study done by Kira Newman. She tracked her moods for a month using an alarm each hour. In her report there are comparisons, correlations and good insights. I commend Kira for the work she has done which has great detail. Her insight that her stories effect her happiness is an important one.
When it comes to the “science” of Quantified Self we should continue to improve our rigor, and we should not be afraid to try new things. I found myself very rusty on statistics and had to go back to the basics just to understand how to get a correlation out of an excel spreadsheet. It was painful, and after some hours on Khan Academy I got myself back in the game a bit. And I am having a lot of fun.
Thanks for the inspiration Kira and on we go!
