Bullet Journal Yearly Tracker Ideas
Today it is all about tracker Bullet Journal page ideas and, more specifically – yearly trackers.
There are many benefits of creating a yearly tracker and many different types of yearly trackers, and in this post, we’ll cover it all, and you’ll get tons of ideas on what kind of yearly tracker you should create.
A yearly tracker is exactly what it sounds like; it’s a tracker that lasts for an entire year.
It might sound scary to commit to something for an entire year, especially if it’s a new habit. But it has a lot of benefits, and there are many other yearly tracker ideas that don’t include such a huge level of commitment.
Let’s look into that first. And there is also a free yearly tracker printable at the end of the post, so be sure to scroll down.
BuJo Yearly Tracker: Pros And Cons
I wanted to say a few words about that before we dive into yearly tracker ideas. Because I know for the longest time, I was scared of yearly trackers, but now I discovered how amazing they actually are.
One of the biggest issues I see people having with these is that it’s difficult to commit to one new habit right away for a whole year.
Well, first of all, it doesn’t have to be a new habit; you can track other things, like your moods or period.
Secondly, you can always choose an easy habit and then as you go to change it to something different. All you need is to add a different color to your key to signify that you switched to a different habit.
Another con is that it takes a while to set it up, with all the lines and numbers and such. And that’s true, but it also means that you set it up once, and you don’t need to do it again for a whole year.
This takes a lot of pressure, and that way, you’ll keep on tracking your progress even in months when you don’t have the time to even do a proper monthly setup.
I hope these convinced you to try out a yearly tracker, so let’s look into some examples.

Supplies To Create Yearly Trackers
Ok, first, a little detour to the supplies because I know a lot of people will wonder.
Here is some of my favorite stationery to create yearly trackers:
- Fineliners. You’ll need those to draw all the lines and tables. Plus, if you want to decorate your tracker with doodles, these will be perfect as well. Currently, these are my favorite fineliners.
- Ruler. You’ll definitely need it to create a year-long tracker. I think this one looks great, but I also would recommend this set of stencils because they can be used for so many things in your Bullet Journal, and one of them is a ruler as well.
- Makers. You can fill out your tracker with patterns, but mostly it’s all about colors. So you’ll need a good set of markers, and these are my favorites.
- Small tip brush pen. These are amazing for creating beautiful brush lettering headers. These ones are my favorite, and if you don’t know how, check my post on Brush Lettering For Beginners.
Supplies gathered; let’s get into yearly trackers.
Bullet Journal Yearly Tracker Ideas
Usually, when talking about a tracker, you think of habit trackers. But actually, there are so many different things you can use your yearly tracker for, like moods, period, or even just weather.
Below are some fun ideas of both, what to track and how to set up a tracker.
Yearly Workout Tracker
One of the most popular ideas for a yearly tracker is a workout tracker, and this one is a wonderful example. I love that the creator used different colors for different types of workouts.
If you need more ideas on that, check my post with Yearly Workout Tracker Ideas.
And if a yearly workout tracker is too much, you can always try a Bullet Journal step tracker instead.
Yearly Period Tracker
Period tracker is another fun idea for your yearly tracking; after all, this is not committing to a whole new habit but just tracking something that happens every year.
I also have a post with Bullet Journal Period Tracker Ideas if you're looking for more inspiration.
Yearly Reading Tracker
Another idea for your yearly tracker is a reading tracker. And, of course, you can check my post with Reading Bullet Journal Page Ideas for some more inspiration.
The original yearly tracker idea is called year in pixels, and it was a mood tracker like this one. There are a lot of benefits of tracking your mood, so it's an amazing idea for a yearly tracker.
If you want to learn more about this type of tracker, you can check my post about Bullet Journal Mood Trackers.
Yearly Weather Tracker
Weather yearly tracker is another interesting idea; it will help you to figure out the general climate situation where you live.
I probably would need one living in La Paz because I never know what weather I'll wake up to.
Minimalist Yearly Tracker
I'm not sure what this is actually to track, but I wanted to include it here because I really love this style. And all you need to create this page is one black pen.
If minimalism is your cup of tea, be sure to check my post with Minimalist Bullet Journal Page Ideas.
Language Learning Tracker
Are you learning a new language? Duolingo is definitely a great place to do that, and you can just do 5 minutes a day, and it will already help you to little by little master a whole new language.
A Video A Day Tracker
Making a second video a day and then compiling it all into a yearly overview video is such a fun idea! It's an amazing way to create a little overview of your year, and it won't take you that much effort every day.
Yearly Body Tracker
This is such an amazing set of yearly trackers to look at all the things you need when you're on a health and fitness journey. I love this idea of creating a graph for the weight.
Yearly Anxiety Tracker
Working on your mental health can be hard, and you might need all the help you can get. This tracker is a great idea to work on your anxiety.
If you need more ideas, check my post Bullet Journal Page Ideas For Mental Health.
Bills Yearly Tracker
Having a tracker can be very helpful when managing your finances, and this one helps to always make sure you pay off all your loans, which, of course, is very important to stay on top of.
if you're looking for more ideas, be sure to check my post Bullet Journal Page Ideas To Manage Your Finances.
Energy Level Tracker
I think this is pretty similar to a mood tracker because I don't know about you, but for me, mood and energy levels are very connected.
Nonetheless, this is a fun tracker, and if you use it together with, for example, a sleep tracker, you'll learn a lot about your health.
Water Plants And Pills Yearly Tracker
Beautiful trackers and I think these are pretty easy to commit; you do need to be regular with both taking your pills and watering your plants. I like that there is also a key symbol for days when you do not do things.
If you're doing bible study, it might be a fun idea to keep track of how far you go with your recap. It's always good to have such a yearly overview of the entire year.
Yearly Sleep Tracker
I love the idea of this one and how the creator approached tracking sleep. Since this is in a Hobonichi journal you can't see the entire year at once, but with a usual A4 journal, you definitely will be able to put all 12 months on two pages.
