The habit tracker is a very important part of any bullet journal. It is not only a powerful tool for personal development but also to facilitate an increase in productivity and motivation in achieving your goals.
What is a habit tracker? It is simply a chart, most commonly available in weekly, monthly, and yearly formats. It helps us to stay on track and accomplish our goals by tracking repetition. The process of writing down your new daily habits and marking them off each day that you perform them is an incredibly powerful motivational tool. Personally, I have to say that habit tracking is the most useful part of my bullet journal system.
What habits should you track? You can track anything you wish in a habit tracker. It’s not just for tracking new momentous life-changing habits that you’d like to implement into your daily schedule. You can also track minor everyday routines that you don’t want to forget like moisturizing your hands, watering a houseplant, or flossing your teeth. For me, unless I add these types of tasks into my habit tracker, I often forget them to perform them!
If you already know what you’d like to track and are looking for a tracker to add to your planner or bullet journal, please consider downloading the SeffSaid monthly habit tracker here. It’s inexpensive and helps me keep this site online. Thanks!
