Habit trackers can help you to learn more about yourself and your habits, and – later on – to develop better habits and a more productive and healthy lifestyle (depending of course on your reasons to use one).

It’s also a great tool to keep you motivated and on track to creating a better life for yourself.

The beauty of a habit tracker is that you can track anything with it. I’d advise you to try out several different things, to see what works for you the best. But always remember, you’re doing it to have a more productive and happier life, so once you feel like filling out trackers becomes a chore – it’s time to cut down on what you track!

Types of Habit Trackers

Before you sit down to create your first tracker, let me run you through some types of habit trackers.

Yearly Tracker

Let’s start big! If you are a fan of having all your yearly progress overview on one page – this format is perfect for you! Here are some ideas for your yearly tackers.

Monthly Habit Tracker

Monthly habit trackers are more of a standard way to track things. I also prefer to have track things monthly. But the standard doesn’t mean boring – look at these amazing designs!

Weekly Trackers

A lot of people find weekly trackers to be more productive. I use them as well, for the things I have to do weekly but don’t exactly feel like I want to have a monthly overview. A good example is chores! To give you an idea of what weekly trackers can look like – check out these beautiful weekly layouts.

How To Set Up a Habit Tracker

You don’t need much to set up your habit tracker – a fineliner and some colors (like my favorite Zebra Mildliners) would be just enough.

If you want to create some cute circle trackers, you definitely will need a Helix Circle Ruler. Or if you want you can invest in my favorite set of stencils, which includes a stencil for usual table tracker, as well as the one for circle trackers (or a circle monthly log).

Here are a few ways you can set up your habit tracker.

Mini Habit Trackers

Mini habit trackers are a fun way to track your habits weekly. They are simple to set up and you can create them in a super cute way to match your monthly theme.

Calendar Habit Trackers

My favorite way to set up a habit tracker is by creating little calendars for each habit. I love how clean it looks and how easy it is to see how you’re doing on each habit.

Horizontal Habit Tracker

This is probably the most popular format, or at least the one everybody starts from. It’s really convenient when you have a lot of things to track.

You can create it on one spread, so you’ll need to turn your journal every time you fill out your tracker. Or you can create a one huge habit tracker on two pages.

Vertical Habit Tracker

Another great format if you want to track quite a lot of habits but want to see how you do every day on each habit. That way you can estimate your day by day, not habit by habit.

Circle Tracker

These are so so cute! Ever since I started Bullet Journaling I’ve been in love with circle tracker and dying to try it. They also look pretty neat even if you’re tracking several habits at the same time.

It might be a bit difficult to set it up though, personally I always miscalculate how many sections I need. So pay extra attention to it when you’re setting up yours.

Square Version of The Circle Tracker

If you like the circle tracker format, but can’t be bothered to draw it, try out the square version. It’s much easier to set up and it still looks pretty cool, doesn’t it?

Doodly Tracker

This type of habit tracker it super fun, but it does take extra effort because it implies that you need to repeat a doodle as many times as there are days in the month.

The idea is that you draw a doodle and assign a habit to each part of it. Once you complete the habit during the day, just color that part of the doodle.

Ready to start? Here is my extensive list of things to put in your habit tracker. The ideas are divided by categories for your convenience.

These are some ideas you could use in your habit tracker. Try out as many as you want and see what works best for you. For that, make sure that before starting a new tracker, you go back to your previous one and check what worked, what didn’t and how you can do it better this time.

The habit tracker is there to help you have a better life and to make you more productive. So when you feel like it’s a chore and doesn’t help you anymore, it’s crucial to look through it and cut out the parts that aren’t working for you.
