All About Habit Trackers

A bullet journal can be so versatile and you can record different information. The bullet journal process is where I was first introduced to habit trackers.

Habit trackers are exactly what they say, they are a way of tracking your habits. The simple way to measure whether you completed a habit. There are plenty of theories you can find online about how many days it takes to form or break a habit. There is a 21/90 rule, this is where you commit to a habit for 21 days straight. It has said after the three weeks it should have become a habit. You then continue the habit for a further 90 days.

Why track your habits or your goals?

Tracking your habits is a great way to feel more confident and more in control of your day to day tasks. When you track your habits on a daily basis gives you a sense of accomplishment and for me it motivates me to continue. Having this visual and the art of checking off a list helps me to feel productive.

What are the benefits of habit tracking?

  1. A sense of achievement
  2. Motivations to full fill the tasks
  3. Acts as a reminder to complete the tasks
  4. Helps to build a routine and structure
  5. It holds you accountable
  6. You learn more about yourself

What layouts can I use for habit trackers?

There are so many different layouts you can use to track your habits. I have used a few different layouts over the years I have been bullet journaling. Over the next few months I am going to trial different layouts, to see if I favour a particular one.

1. Horizontal Table

I liked this layout because you can fill the boxes in with colourful designs, or with patterns and it is very aesthetically pleasing.

2. Individual calendars and trackers

I saw this layout from Amanda RachLee, I have been using this form of tracking for a few months. It can be a bit more time consuming but does have a very clean look to it.

Other examples of layouts

I have found habit trackers helpful in full filling tasks. I want to trial new layouts and see if I find a system that works for me.

Do you use habit trackers in your bullet journal? I’d love to hear in the comments.
