Some are good, some are bad. Some make us feel awesome, and some make us feel like otherwise.
But what if you could change the ones that aren't working for you? What if you could replace the negative ones with good ones, or even just improve the good ones?
Well guess what: You can!
Tracking your habits is an easy way to identify the things that work for you, and the things that don't. It can help you build habits that make your life feel more balanced and meaningful, and it can help you identify the things that are holding you back from reaching those goals.
If you're already into bullet journaling, you've probably heard of habit trackers. But if you're not using one yet, you are missing out on a powerful tool that can help you improve your life in many ways.
So, what is a habit tracker?
Simply put, it's a tool to keep track of your daily or weekly habits in your bullet journal. You can use a simple chart or grid to mark each day or week that you complete a certain habit, like drinking 8 glasses of water, exercising for 30 minutes, meditating for 10 minutes, or reading for 20 minutes.
Here are 6 benefits of using a habit tracker in your bullet journal:
It helps you develop good habits.By tracking your habits on a daily (or weekly) basis, you're more likely to stick to them and turn them into a routine. Plus, seeing your progress and success over time can be very motivating and rewarding.
It helps you identify bad habits.Sometimes, we're not aware of the habits that are holding us back or harming us. By tracking all your habits in one place, you can easily spot the ones that are not serving you and make a plan to change them.
It helps you prioritise your time and energy.When you have a long list of habits you want to develop or improve, it can be overwhelming and hard to know where to start. By using a habit tracker, you can focus on the most important habits first and gradually add more over time.
It helps you track your progress and celebrate your wins.There's nothing more satisfying than looking back at your habit tracker and seeing all the green check marks or stickers. It's a visual reminder of how far you've come and how much you've achieved.
It helps you reduce stress and anxiety.When you have a clear plan and routine for your habits, you can reduce the stress and anxiety of feeling overwhelmed or disorganised. Plus, some habits like meditation, journaling, or gratitude can help you manage stress and improve your mental health.
It helps you improve your self-awareness and mindfulness.By tracking your habits, you're forced to pay attention to your daily actions and choices. This can help you become more mindful and self-aware, and make intentional decisions that align with your values and goals.
It's hard to improve if you don't know how you're doing. The habit tracker is a really helpful framework to identify where you're succeeding, and where you can improve. This could be your health or fitness, your habits around money, or pretty much any other area of your life that you want to improve upon.
Your habit tracker can be a simple chart where you mark off each day that you complete a particular habit. But you can also customise your habit tracker page to make it more visually appealing and motivating. The key to making habit tracking work for you is to choose a tracker that fits your needs and goals yet open enough to allow you flexibility when life happens.
