bullet journal sleep tracker

A good sleep does wonders for our body! However, the constant access to our smartphones and long working hours on the screen has started affecting the quality of our sleep. Studies claim that sleeping and waking up at the fixed time each day sets our body’s circadian rythm, also known as the sleep-wake cycle.

A healthy sleep cycle is extremely important for your mental as well as physical health. A sleep tracker is a perfect way to help you achieve that. Here is your complete guide to sleep tracking. Discover what is a sleep tracker and the benefits of tracking your sleep. In the later section of the article, you will also find some bullet journal sleep tracker ideas for your inspiration.

What Are Sleep Trackers?

A sleep tracker, as the name suggests, is a tool that helps you track your sleep. You can track the number of hours that you sleep in a day, the timings of your sleep, and also the quality of sleep that you get. There are many ways in which you can track your sleep, but in this article, we will exclusively be looking at using a bullet journal to track your sleeping pattern.  

What Are The Benefits Of Using A Sleep Tracker?

All of us have different sleep needs. The old 8 hours a day might not work for everyone. Some people might feel alive and energetic with only 6 hours of sleep, while some might require 9 hours of sleep.

Maintaining a sleep tracker will help you identify your sleep needs to achieve your highest possible efficiency.  Studies have also shown that a proper sleep cycle can reduce your risk of heart failure and diabetes. A healthy sleep cycle will also increase the regulation of weight, appetite, and energy.

Do you have certain times in the day when you feel an energy drop? You can reduce the intensity of those energy drops and also get rid of them altogether, if you sleep well.

Getting good quality sleep is essential for maintaining a good mood and decreasing  your stress levels. As you work on improving your sleep patterns, you will begin to feel more productive and healthy. It also improves your memory and concentration levels.

How to Maintain Sleep Tracker In Bullet Journal?

Maintaining a sleep tracker or a sleep log in your bullet journal is a great way to track your sleep schedule and improve your wellbeing. I have found that its best to follow a simple and effective layout to track your sleep in your bullet journal. You can use the standard monthly layout or opt for a weekly layout as well. You can include a sleep tracker in your weekly or monthly bullet journal spreads, or dedicate a page exclusively for tracking your sleep. 

You can also use your bullet journal to draw correlation between sleep and other aspects of your life such as your mood or your work/study hours. 

If there are certain habits that you are trying to follow to align your sleep cycle like – keep the phone away half an hour before going to bed, working out for at least 30 minutes, or writing in your journal right before bed – you can use your bullet journal to track those habits alongside the sleep tracker.

I absolutely adore this blue ‘never go to bed mad’ sleep tracker by @cath_studies. Write down the days of the month along with the week along the vertical axis of the page.

You need not write down the number of hours slept for every single day, instead, you can follow a simpler layout like the previous one. I love the header with cute doodles at the top.
