Today, I am sharing a bullet journal habit tracker inspiration gallery. Habit trackers can be great tools to help keep you on track toward your goals, as great reminders for repeating monthly/weekly tasks, or, when life gets too busy, something to take up space in your notebook 😆. Habit tracking itself has to become a habit to be consistent, which can be super challenging. I myself still don’t use habit trackers as consistently as I’d like, but they are great reminders to get things done. I have a video for you here to check out if you prefer to listen, but I do have a bit more information available here so, let’s get into it.
Bullet Journal Habit Tracking Supplies
Of course I’m starting with the good stuff!
Habit tracking in it’s most basic form requires nothing more than a pen. If you prefer straight lines instead of freehand drawing, you can grab a ruler. But that’s about it. Of course, it’s always fun to be a bit extra every now and again!
My favourite habit trackers are the calendar trackers. I stamp down my calendar and cross off the days. It is so quick and easy to do. I have restocked some calendar stamps in my shop that you can check out. This is a calendar building set so it doesn’t matter the month, if you prefer Monday start or Sunday start, this set has you covered.
My next favourite kind of habit tracker has been the circle tracker. Particularly for October and November, I have really loved this habit tracker from Erin Floto Designs. I talk more about it in my November Setup, but basically, this was designed as a cleaning tracker and has spaces for daily tracking, bi weekly tracking, weekly tracking, and monthly tracking. It is so fun and versatile. I have found that I am able to incorporate my goals into this tracker and have it with me in my bullet journal. She has other habit tracker stencils as well (the one I used in my shark setup for August), which I really love too. If it’s not in the budget, don’t worry! Erin also has a great tutorial for setting up a circle tracker with a compass.
As a great all-round option, Notebook Therapy has a habit tracker stamping set that has some great monthly and weekly options available. Archer and Olive have also recently released a stamp set with a weekly habit tracker that is a great option as well. I am and Archer and Olive affiliate (which means you are supporting me as well as a small woman owned business), and in return, I am able to off you 10% off with my code, NML10.
Ideas for Habit Tracking
- Healthy Eating
- Pet care items (i.e. litter boxes, medicines)
- Meal Planning
- No pop/soda
- Early to Bed
- Plant care
- Mindfulness practice
- Specific steps toward your bigger goals
- No spend
- Limited screen time
The list of things you can track is endless. Just make sure that you only pick a handful at a time. Picking too many things to track can lead to feeling overwhelmed and/or tired of tracking.
Habit Tracker Guilt
I did want to address the guilt that can arise when you don’t fill out your habit trackers. This stems from that ingrained need to be perfect and, as we all know, that’s not realistic. If you didn’t use your habit tracker, then maybe consider the following things:
- As mentioned above, you chose too many habits to track
- You chose habits that maybe weren’t as meaningful to you as you initially thought
- You chose habits that you didn’t need to be tracking
- This one is controversial given the content of this post, but maybe you don’t need habit trackers right now
Regardless of where you are on your journaling/tracking journey, always be kind to yourself. If you didn’t use it the previous month, then either don’t make a new one, or just try again. The beauty of journaling is that you can just turn the page and keep going.
