Why Do You Need A Habit Tracker?

According to Harvard, you do 48 percent of your work on autopilot. So, roughly half of the tasks you perform in a day are done unconsciously. That is why it is important to develop better habits.

Starting a new habit is easy at first, but sticking to it is the difficult part. You can use a bullet journal habit tracker to,

  • to create new habits
  • break old ones.
  • track your weekly progress.
  • divide a larger goal into smaller milestones.

Changing a habit may appear to be a small task, but as James Clear points out in his book Atomic Habits,

Every action you take is a vote for the person you wish to become.

Benefits of Habit Tracker

  • Create visual cues for action.

  • Helps you improve your life’s systems.
  • Creates a compound effect. Small actions everyday eventually leads to big changes.
  • Gives you satisfaction every time you cross something off.
  • Break your goals into smaller habits.
  • Create an optimized routine.

Steps To Create Bullet Journal Spreads For Trackers

A habit tracker simply contains,

  • a list of habits on one side,
  • dates on the other,
  • a checkbox to mark when you completed a habit.

Step 1 : Choose The Habits You Want To Track

Create a list of habits you want to track but don’t go overboard. It would be best if you focused on no more than 3-5 habits at a time.

Take inspiration from the habits mentioned above. Or select the habits of your idols that you admire.

Step 2 : Choose A Layout

Choose a layout that you want to use in your bullet journal habit tracker page. Here are a few ideas,

  • Weekly Layout

Use this layout if you want to track your habits weekly. Eg, if you want to workout 3x a week, it’d be better to analyze that in a weekly habit tracker.

Here are the step,

  1. Make a 7-column table, one for each day of the week.
  2. Maintain one row for each habit you wish to track.
  3. Mark the box next to the day and habit that you completed.
  • Monthly Layout

A new habit is said to take 21 days to build. You can track that more effectively with this layout. Here are the steps,

  1. Create a table with 31 columns, depending on the number of days in the month.
  2. Number it from 1-31.
  3. Maintain one row for each habit you wish to track.
  4. Put the habits in front of the corresponding rows.
  5. Mark the box next to the day and habit that you completed.

Here, utaisjournaling included the monthly habit trackers in the monthly log spread.

  • Circular Layout

If you have more time on your hands, create a circular habit tracker.

Here are the steps,

  1. Draw the circles, one outside the other. One circle for each habit you want to track.
  2. Write down the corresponding habits.
  3. Divide the circular arcs into 30 parts, one for each day.
  4. Mark the box next to the day and habit that you completed.
  • Infographic Layout

This tracker is used to track some information along with the check box. For example, if you use a sleep tracker, you can insert a small column inside each box to record the number of hours you slept each day.

You can tailor this layout to the type of data you want to store.

Mood Trackers Bullet Journal Spreads

Along with your habits, you should keep track of your mood. This allows you to assess the impact of the habits you’re forming.

After all, who wants to create a new habit only to feel bad?

Let’s say you’re starting a new habit, like eating healthy. This will lead you to feel more energized and productive throughout the day. Tracking these emotions in your mood tracker will also encourage you to continue.

If you’re trying to wake up early. And have been grumpy or lethargic all day. Tracking this in your mood tracker will force you to examine the cause of your mood.

Maybe because you stay up late and don’t get enough sleep. This will force you to start sleeping earlier.

Mood trackers are extremely useful in analyzing what makes us happy so that we can do more of it.

Here are some bullet journal spreads for habit trackers and mood trackers to give you some inspiration.
