Employing Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA) we assess concepts relevant to mood and motivation in the daily life of individuals with depressive symptoms. In addition, participants are asked to perform exercises that use mental imagery to promote the engagement in activities via an app on several days. This study, thereby, elucidates the links between relevant concepts in daily life and how they are impacted by mental imagery exercises outside the lab.
