I love bullet journaling for many reasons, but one of them is that it helps me reflect on the things that I do. Part of the whole fun of bujoing is adding memories, doodles, lists, goals, and of course, habit trackers! Sometimes we just don’t realize our habits (good or bad) until we reflect on them. If you’re interested in learning more about yourself and reflecting on your habits, I’ve compiled a round up of inspiration for you to go off of for your own bullet journal!
If you’re new to bullet journaling and you need to back up a bit to find out what it’s all about,
visit my post Why Bullet Journal?
In it I concisely explain the concept of a ‘bujo’ and provide tons of links to more inspiration.
Now for the round up…
Standard Habit Trackers
You can’t go wrong with a colorful, box-style habit tracker, like this one from @craftyenginerd. Just simply list the habits you’d like to track and make a column for each day of the month!
If boxes aren’t your thing, you can go with the traditional bullet-journal dots to track your habits instead.
If you have a LOT of habits you would like to track, consider breaking your habits into categories for more organization, like this spread from Anna. The possibilities are ENDLESS for what you can track – just pick things that are right for you. It may not be the same every month, either, and that’s okay!
Sublime Reflection uses another way of tracking habits: a line graph. In fact, she has a lot of great ideas for tracking health in the same post, so if you like this idea of hers, you should check out her post, too!
Individual Habit Trackers
At first I wasn’t a huge fan of those standard tracking spreads because I felt like it would be difficult to truly see your progress in one area. Therefore, I gravitated to individual trackers, like this one from Breeeberry, an awesome bujo inspiration!
The next time I decide to set up an individual tracker, though, I think I’ll opt to mimic Belinda’s page. I love how she found a way to not write out 1-30 so many times (also, I’ll never have to worry about ink smudges when I color in my boxes!).
Monthly/Weekly Habit Trackers
As I mentioned before, I didn’t especially care for my individual trackers. I seemed to forget about them a lot, and I still didn’t get a good sense for how I had done in each area.
All of this lead me to include my habit tracker in my monthly. Which I like better because I’m looking at my whole month more often. To help with the issue of ‘sensing’ my progress, I now set a goal for each habit and count as I track. (That’s what those numbers are in the boxes!) This has really helped to inspire me to work towards goals, rather than simply recording what I do.
This habit tracker was incorporated into the weekly. However, I wouldn’t advise this if you have a lot to track. Save big tracking for your monthly or a separate spread entirely, and use weeklies for the little things.
Do you have another way of tracking your habits? Please share! I hope this inspired you to create a habit tracker that works for you.
