The WHOOP Journal allows you to track numerous behaviors (including medication usage, nutrition, mental health, and more) to monitor their impact on your Recovery, Strain, and Sleep. You can view a complete list here.
Over time, the WHOOP system will provide analysis as to how these various behaviors impact your WHOOP data. This article covers:

Completing a Journal Entry
For each behavior you've chosen, a card will appear asking you if you participated in that behavior during the previous day.

What do the numbers below my responses mean?
The numbers beneath each card represent the number of times you've answered Yes or No within the previous 90 days. Over time, you can get a sense of how often you participate or engage in certain behavior.
Where can I find the analysis?
The Monthly Performance Assessment*, delivered on the 1st of each month, will provide the latest analysis as to how each tracked behavior impacts various Recovery and Sleep metrics. In order for the analysis to be comprehensive, a sufficient amount of data is required -- keep logging data each day to make sure your analysis is as thorough as possible!
*Note: You need 28 total recoveries to get your first MPA.
How many times do I need to log something in my journal to see analysis in the M.P.A?
The Monthly Performance Assessment requires each tracked behavior to have at least 5 yes responses and 5 no responses within a 90 day period to analyze the impact of the behavior.
Is my data used beyond the analysis provided by my Monthly Performance Assessment?
WHOOP may use the data it collects and the answers from Journal entries as a de-identified or aggregated data sets. This means WHOOP formats and uses data in ways that cannot be traced back to specific individuals. This anonymized data is used to improve algorithms and provide more complex insights for members (ex: the correlation between WHOOP data, stress, and illness).
