In episode 197 of UX Podcast James Royal-Lawson and Per Axbom talk to Jennifer Akullian about mental health within the tech industry.

During the discussion Jen mentioned her use of 'stop lights' to allow people to express how they are feeling. Per shared his method which used weather symbols to convey mood.

This simple web page is designed to allow you to show, perhaps at the beginning of a meeting, what your mood is by choosing a suitable weather symbol.

You don't need to explain why you have chosen the symbol if you don't feel comfortable with doing so.

The weather symbol should be able to communicate enough about your mood to help others understand how you are feeling and help them work better with by having an idea of your state of mind.
