Keeping a bullet journal is a great way to focus on self care and wellness. You can personalize it and also find new ways improve your daily routine. But what if you don’t know where to begin? Thankfully, there are so many inspirational bullet journal page ideas and guides online! At the moment, one of my bullet journal must haves is a habit tracker page.
This year, I’ve been focusing on leading a more healthy lifestyle. Bullet journaling has helped me a lot with this goal. In college, I neglected self care often and felt stressed out most days. I wasn’t cooking much or staying active. During my senior year, I pulled more than a few all nighters and felt fatigued the next day. That unhealthy lifestyle followed me after graduation. I’m 25 now and really want to put wellness first.
I’m so happy that I started a habit tracker page in my bullet journal! The main things I track are my mood, anxiety levels, water intake, exercise, if I cooked that day, and self care. It’s nice to check off your accomplishments and see everything down on paper.
What exactly is a habit tracker?
A habit tracker is a page in your bullet journal where you can track your everyday habits. Basically, keeping a page like this helps you monitor healthy changes in order to enhance your daily routine. For example, maybe you want to spend more time outdoors throughout the month. You can start a habit tracker to check off how many nature walks you went on during the month.
It takes time to incorporate a habit into your regular routine. With a habit tracker, you’ll have an encouraging reminder in your bullet journal. The habit tracker should motivate you to achieve both short and longterm goals!
How to Start a Habit Tracker Page
1. Brainstorm your goals.
Start with brainstorming what habits you want to track. Compile a list of some goals you have at the moment. I’d suggest picking only a few items from the list so you don’t feel overwhelmed.
2. Make a calendar spread.
Next, decide what time frame works best for you. Create a calendar or spread for that period of time. Make sure to keep it realistic. Maybe you want to start small and track your habits for the next week or two. You can always add more to your calendar as time goes on! In general, habit trackers tend to look like monthly calendars. The time frame is totally up to you and should fit your needs!
3. Get creative and doodle!
Design your spread so that it inspires you — this is where you can get super creative! Add your favorite colors and doodle on the calendar. I’ve always loved space, so I added stars and moons to my habit tracker page!
4. Check in with yourself.
Finally, it’s time to use your habit tracker! Before the day ends, highlight or cross off your completed habits. Remember to be kind to yourself. You may have not completed all of your goals that day and it’s perfectly okay! These things take time and your bullet journal should be an outlet that encourages you. Don’t forget to congratulate yourself for your accomplishments!
Finding the right products for your habit tracker is essential. Here are just a few products for your bullet journaling journey! Personally, my favorite finds are from Amazon and Etsy. They’re all affordable and super cute! 💗
