How to Track Habits and Goals with a Bullet Journal

How to track goals and habits with a bullet journal |

Bullet journaling is a great way to not only keep track of daily and weekly tasks, but I find it is awesome for tracking goals and habits throughout the month. Last month, I showed you how I set up my first bullet journal. Since I am still very new in the bullet journal world, I take a very minimalist approach to my bullet journal. I totally admire the fancy designs people come up with, but I do not believe you have to be super artistic to have a bullet journal! In today’s post I am sharing my bullet journal habit tracker and how I am tracking my goals this month. I am also looking back at January’s setup to show you how I did with my habit and gratitude log.

January Bullet Journal Setup: Habits and Gratitude

Last month I was tracking four goals: a daily devotional, mindfulness, retainer and posting on Instagram. Things kind of went awry because I had an endoscopy on Jan. 3, then gallbladder surgery on Jan. 17. I kept up with the daily devotional, but after the surgery the mindfulness and retainer-wearing went out the window.

There were also days where I forgot about writing something I was grateful for, but for the most part I really enjoyed that exercise and will be continuing that this month.

February Bullet Journal Setup

This month I set up the calendar the same as in January, because I found it worked out really well. I use this space to write big events and holidays as an overview to see what’s coming up.

Monthly Goals

I plan to use this page as a point of reference to look at throughout the month as inspiration and direction. Often I have things in mind I want to do, but I think having them written down somewhere I am going to see every day is going to be a big help. It will also be interesting to look back at the end of the month to see how I did!

Bullet Journal Habit Tracker and Gratitude Journal

This page is the same idea as the habits and gratitude page I had in January, but I went with a slightly different layout. This month I’m going to focus on the two habits I didn’t do so well with in January: doing a daily mindfulness exercise and wearing my retainer every night. I am also going to continue writing one thing I am grateful for every day.
