One of the most popular things with bullet journaling is trackers. You can track almost anything you want for any given space of time. You can use them to track from your daily activities and tasks, to your savings and weight loss.
But why do you need to use trackers?
- To track things that you want to encourage and motivate yourself to do on a more regular basis.
- To track how often you do things
- To keep an eye on your progress with various projects/tasks.
However, as you can see from the picture above, it didn't work for me. I kept on forgeting to go back to that page on a daily basis, in order to fill in the little squares. So, even though I was doing those things most of the days, I wasn't taking note of that.
Then I decided to move my tracker in my monthly spread, so that I see it more often and therefore remember to fill it in.
So then I decided to narrow it down to 3 things that I really wanted to track. I believed that I was being overwhelmed with the amount of habits I wanted to track and therefore I wasn't motivated enough to actually keep track of them.
Taking a look around in the social media there is so much inspiration from other bullet journalists. There's so many different ways that you can track down any number of things.
You can track down one habit for the whole year like ModernMissJournaling did with her spending or how TinyRayOfSunshine did with her running.
Or you can track lots of tasks for each month of the year like jen_plans
You can have one table to track lots of different habits, like BohoBerry.
Or you can have single tables to track each one, like spddmn and BreeeBerry
You can track your sleep patterns (breeeberry)
You can track your financial goals like honeyrozes
You can track the episodes you've watched from your favourite series like bujo_planner
You can track your water intake per day like idobelieveincommas
You can even track your moods like passioncarnets!
Even though I had a mixed relationship with habit trackers in the beginning, I now love their functionality and how they can motivate someone and keep them focused and on track. What do you track in your bullet journal?
