Hello Planning Mashers!
In this post, we’ll be talking about water tracking and how it can help you.
Plus, you’ll find some Bullet Journal water tracker inspirations and a free printable.
I’ve always found drinking enough water a difficult task. So, believe me when I say – I did my research and tried to come up with as many ways as possible to fix that.
Drinking water is a simple thing that significantly impacts your health and well-being.
So if you’re also struggling like me, or maybe just looking for a way to make sure you drink enough water – you’re in the right place.
And of course, I created a little free printable that will help you with that, so be sure to scroll until the end of the post.

Why Is Drinking Water Important
Our bodies are 60% water, so staying hydrated has a hugely positive effect on your health.
I think you might be surprised by some of these benefits because I surely was.
It seemed to me there is not much connection there, but apparently, there is.
I always find that it’s easier to set a new habit when you know how exactly it improves you and your life, so here are some perks you get from staying hydrated:
- You generally will be healthier
- You’ll be more focused and have a clearer mind
- You’ll have better and shinier skin (this one, in particular, gave me motivation)
- Your digestive system will be working smoother
- It’ll help you to get rid of headaches
I bet just these few are enough to make you want to go and drink that extra glass of water!
How Much Water Should You Drink
I’m no medical professional, so don’t take this as a golden standard for yourself.
Actually, many factors come into play when you try to figure out how much water to drink, like your age, weight, activity level, etc.
I recommend you try this calculator to figure out the exact measurements your body needs.
On average, though, it’s recommended to drink 8 cups of 8 ounces a day, so something around 2 liters.
Tips To Drink More Water
Somehow drinking enough water is not always easy, even if you understand the value and try to stay hydrated.
Here are some tips and techniques that will help you stay on track with your water consumption:
- Infuse water
I find that often I feel like soda instead of water because water has no flavor and is a pretty dull drink. Try to infuse your water with lemon, cucumber, mint. It will still be water, but with more fun to it.
- Have a glass before and/or after a meal
Meals are something we forget less often, so why not connect your water drinking habits with food? That alone should give you around six glasses of water already easily scheduled in your day.
- Carry a water bottle with you
Try filling out a bottle with all the water you need to drink during the day and just carrying it with you, finishing it throughout the day. These will help you stay motivated and come in many cute designs.
- Use a water tracker
Of course, your Bullet Journal is there to help you – just use a water tracker. You can add one to your week, use a daily one (like these stickers I add to my weeklies), or create a monthly water tracking spread (like our free printable).
- Use a water tracking app
Bullet Journal Water Tracker Inspirations
Of course, as a Bullet Journal enthusiast, I had to include here some trackers you can create in your journal.
The idea of a water tracker is very basic, but I wanted to demonstrate how many interesting and creative ways there are to add them to your BuJo.
Beautiful water tracker and I like how it’s right next to a sleep tracker.
I feel like matching trackers that way actually helps to see clearly how things are related to each other.
A pretty easy graph to track your water consumption.
I like that the author also wrote the exact number of cups drunk next to each line.
I like this tracker, but I definitely thought from first sight that it’s a yearly tracker.
The illustration is also very cute and on the theme.
This is a super cute tracker, and I love the beautiful and bright colors.
Also, can we take a minute and stare in amazement at how much water the artists drinks! I’m in awe.
A great example of having a weekly water tracker.
It’s pretty convenient since you have it in front of you every day when you open your journal to plan the day.
I really like the idea for this tracker, how each cup is an extra line towards the rain.
This is also another example of a weekly water tracker, in case you want to go very creative and for it to occupy the entire page.
This match of trackers is perfect, it gives such an amazing outlook of your current body and mind situation. All these habits are very interconnected, so it’s awesome that she put them all together like this.
Plus, it looks super neat and very pretty.
As you can see I also track water, but lately I’m doing it more on a daily basis.
I’m using printable stickers from my shop.
Very cute tracker and it will be perfect for a Fall theme.
You’ll definitely need shades of orange for this one though, and the Crayola Super Tips used here are perfect for that – they come in many colors and are pretty affordable.
Really cute monthly water tracker, and the creator decided to aim for 9 cups of water a day.
I also like the adorable illustrations here.
In this tracker, you count more ml than cups of water, but you can definitely change it up if you decide to recreate it.
Also, I’m loving the little motivation line on the bottle.
Another example of the water tracker is in a weekly spread.
Those little bottles between the daily boxes are actually to track water consumption, and I see that she actually did pretty well with her water that week.
An interesting way to add some fun to your water tracker – is by making the glasses in the shape of cocktail glasses.
I’m also loving the quote, I never thought about it that way but isn’t it kind of true?
Very simple but effective water tracker.
I like how it’s all so well divided by weeks.
A great tracker in beautiful pastel colors, and I love how it’s general hydration, now just water. So you can see when you gave up on water what was your drink of choice.
It’s also a good example that you can definitely use a lined notebook as a Bullet Journal.
