What is a Habit Tracker?
A habit tracker is a simple bullet journal spread that helps you to keep track of anything & everything in your life…from your daily tasks, health & fitness, finances & more… the possibilities are endless!
Tracking your habits will help you to gain awareness of both your positive & sabotaging behaviors & help you to make changes where you need to.
Maybe you spend more money than you have each month or maybe you forget to drink enough water on a daily basis?
If so, you can improve these habits by using a habit tracker!
Without a habit tracker, changing your habits can be really hard to do because habits are hard to break… especially the bad ones!
But by using a habit tracker you will be able to form new habits much easier because it’s a way to hold yourself accountable whilst keeping track of your progress… which is motivating in itself!
Reasons To Use A Habit Tracker
- keep on top of daily tasks
- bring habits that you don’t notice into your awareness
- track how often you do certain things
- to motivate yourself towards reaching for your goals
- to introduce new healthy habits into your life
- better time management
- to help you stay productive on a daily basis
Why You Need Good Habits
You might be thinking a few bad habits here & there is nothing to worry about, right?
And you’re right! We all have bad habits & it’s true that nobody is perfect!
But many of our habits are automatic & out of our awareness!
Therefore, it makes sense that you could easily find yourself with many patterns of behavior that aren’t really helping you!
It’s important to be aware of your habits because your habits form your daily routine…. and your daily routine has a direct impact on all areas of your life!
By creating a habit tracker spread in your bullet journal you start to bring your behavior & choices (including the ones that previously went unnoticed) into full focus… consequently, you can change your behavior & make decisions that are going to improve your life!
How To Layout Your Habit Tracker
There are endless ways you can design your habit tracker layout!
Some popular tracker layouts include…
- circle habit tracker
- traditional monthly tracker
- mini tracker
Circle habit trackers are a great way to keep everything looking compact & pretty on the page. Here is a great circle tracker as an example…
Traditional Monthly Trackers
This is a simple & effective habit tracker layout that’s great for keeping all your habits easy to track at a glance. This simple rectangle grid is great for you if you’re just starting out with a bullet journal…
Mini trackers are a great way to keep track of the habits you want to change the most! Consistency is the key to successfully changing your habits so therefore you want to avoid overwhelming yourself with too many changes at once. These mini trackers are a really cute example…
Steps To Setting Up Your Habit Tracker
- Decide what habits you want to track
- Check out Pinterest & Instagram for habit tracker inspiration
- Decide which tracker layout is best for you & sketch it out in your journal
- Draw up in neat & write in your habits
- Check & fill in your tracker every morning & evening (don’t panic if you forget a day or two, it happens to everyone)
- Stay motivated by appreciating all your progress, no matter how seemingly small!
- Write up inspirational & motivational quotes on your tracker page to keep you motivated to reach your target
Things To Track In Your Bullet Journal Habit Tracker
One of the greatest things about habit trackers is that you can literally track anything & everything!
Just because you CAN track anything & everything does it mean that you should?
You see, a habit tracker is meant to give you incremental & doable steps to make changes in your life… So don’t try and track habits that are unrealistic!
For example, if you try & track doing 600 push-ups a day you’ll quickly feel overwhelmed & resentful which is the opposite of what a habit tracker should be doing for you… empowering & encouraging you!
So, Make sure that the habits you’re tracking are your priorities & that they’re actually helping you to improve areas of your life that are important to you…
