The Habit Tracker Might Actually Be Helping Me Build Good Habits

I don’t mean to sound controversial, but I really thought that habit tracker would be more artistic than functional this month. I thought it would be a pretty page to take pictures of, but it turns out? I might actually be trying to do more things on the list so I can color in the boxes, or at least thinking about doing them. Which is a step in the right direction. Obviously with items like “reading” and “meditating” it’s not producing much action, but at least once a day I think about reading or meditating which is more than I was doing before. And some things like “No Diet Coke” are helping me resist temptation because I don’t want to break my streak of awesomeness.

Several of you asked for a printable version like in this entry, and I’m working on one with “blanks” for the habits. I’ll post that for download as soon as I’m done because it seems these habit trackers are good for more than just instagram fodder. THEY MIGHT ACTUALLY HELP BUILD HABITS.

I don’t know why I’m surprised. My bullet journal habits have helped me in so many other areas like my 100K training and my art, of course it would help in the basics of habit building.

  1. I started a monthly habit tracker in October. Previously, I was tracking on a weekly basis. Weekly wasn’t working. Setting it up on a monthly basis so you won’t break a streak of “awesomeness”- totally agree. It has encouraged me to to actually make good habits. I also tracker daily metrics for work in my monthly chart. It was a game changer for me.
