Collecting some dataI've been playing with an app on my phone that buzzes at random times and asks me to collect some data about how I feel and what I'm doing. First, you rate how happy, relaxed, and awake you feel (on a scale). Then you record some information about where you are (e.g. indoors or out; home, work or someplace else), who you are with, and what you are doing.
I started doing it out of curiosity. But, it might be a good tool for tracking data that might be useful for training. It is a bit like a training log but it has an interesting advantage (or maybe difference is a better way to put it). Because the data is collected at random time periods, it catches you a bit off guard. You quickly enter the data, almost without thinking. When you write in a training log, you're thinking.
I've no idea if I'll learn anything interesting.
The app is called Mappiness.

The classic finding I know from using this technology is that sex is best and commuting is worst; from sex to talking with your boss is about the same happiness difference as from talking with your boss to commuting.
