You can use a bullet journal to literally track everything. Out of all the collections that one can use in a bullet journal, my favorite and the one I can’t do without is a habit tracker.

Why?


Without habits trackers, I can’t even imagine my bullet journal. As a self-help junkie, it’s one of the reasons for me to start a bullet journal.

We all want to have healthy habits in life. But you know, how forming a new habit is easier said than done. This is where a habit tracker can help you.

What are the benefits of having a habit tracker in your bullet journal?

  • You can keep track of all your habits in one place.
  • You don’t forget to do your habits anymore. Especially new habits that you want to form.
  • By the end of each week/month, you can assess how much did you plan to do and how much you did accomplish. It is really useful because we waste so many days in our lives just by wishing away. A habit tracker gently forces you to actually do them. Since you write them down and track every day, your brain knows it is important and it reminds you every day.
  • Your life gets a new order and a routine.
  • By looking at the pattern in your habit tracker, you get a visual idea of how your week/month was in accordance with your performance of habits.
  • You are more motivated to do your habits because you don’t want blank trackers. Trust me, it’s a thing. Your journal becomes your accountability partner. Sometimes I find myself doing my chores even when I am lazy, just to track in my journal.

is a weekly or monthly habit tracker better?

I would say, you should experiment with both. Personally, I like monthly habit trackers because once I take some time to set up a monthly tracker, I am done for the month. Then I have to worry about setting up weekly spreads only.

But sometimes I do weekly trackers. When setting up each month’s spread, if I am short on time (sometimes, I set up spreads in the last minute), I decide to use weekly trackers. It’s not that difficult. 

But for some people, monthly trackers may not work. They are more productive when they track habits weekly. It’s up to you to experiment.

Or else, you can have both trackers. For the habits you do weekly or twice/thrice per week, you can have a monthly tracker. Habits like exercise, weekly scrub/mask, grocery shopping etc. You can mark them beforehand and it will help you to remember on which days you are supposed to do them.

For the habits you want to track with more details like, how much water do you drink each day, how many hours do you sleep etc, you can have weekly trackers or separate monthly trackers for them (you can see examples below).

A hack to remember to check your monthly habit trackers

Use index tabs, so that you don’t forget to check it ever.

25 bullet journal habit trackers to get inspired

Most of the habit trackers fall into these categories: linear, circular and mini trackers. 

I have handpicked some habit trackers from each category so that you can get a variety of ideas and inspiration.

Linear habit trackers

If you have many habits to track, you can try linear trackers. You can draw them in one or two pages.

Isn’t this tracker beautiful? The poppies give this spread a color pop. Apart from being beautiful, this habit tracker is functional too. It has a general tracker for all habits and separate logs for water and sleep. It is useful for people who want to track the exact numbers.

This tracker is also easy to draw since there are no columns. You can use the dots as the reference.

This habit tracker is made in two pages and decorated with pictures around. This one is also less time consuming to make since you rely on dots rather than lines. I would make such a tracker when I am in a hurry. If you don’t want to draw, you can use stickers like these.

A two-page spread which is divided into morning, workday and night. I love how the spread is divided into three time periods and the color coding.

Another simple tracker where each week is separated by a line. I am always attracted to simple spreads in a bullet journal because they are less time-consuming and suitable for non-artistic people (no offense to beautiful bujos).

If you have read my articles before, you know how much I adore minimalist bullet journal spreads and trackers. Here is one. You don’t need to draw lines as dots serve as the guide (a good reason to buy dotted notebooks).

Sleep tracker that tracks the exact time you went to bed and number of hours of sleep.

mini habit trackers

Unlike linear trackers where each habit is tracked along a line, this one has a box dedicated for each habit with 30 or 31 squares. It need not be a box, people use circles and other shapes too. Let’s see some examples.

This habit tracker has separate columns for a month for each habit. Using different colors for each row makes it vivid. I love the graphical representation of sleep and steps tracker.

Now this one is different from all the others. While we usually track for a week/month, this habit tracker tracks for 100 days. The starting date is noted on the page. The triangle is colored yellow on the days a habit isn’t completed. The only downside it has is, it doesn’t have dates. But I think it’s meant to see the ratio or pattern over three months rather than individual days.

This one comes with a twist. This is a tutorial on how to create novelty monthly trackers. It’s a fun and innovative way to track your habits. You know how hard it is to change habits. In the beginning you are enthusiastic, but after a few weeks, it gets monotonous. Changing your habit trackers every month to use fresh ideas as this can kill monotony.

Circular habit trackers

I love the look of circular habit trackers. It definitely breaks the monotony and makes your journal beautiful. I use this compass-protractor for drawing circular trackers in my bullet journal. And for filling in, I use Staedtler fineliner pens. I love these pens, the tip is thin enough to fill in the small squares or pies and available in many colors. I like to color code my habit trackers with these pens.
