It is said that it takes only 21 days to build or get rid of a habit. And if you too want to build a habit, then a habit tracker is a great tool to help you achieve that.
A habit tracker is a very simple and efficient way to track if you are following that habit or not. The most basic way to track a particular habit is by using a calendar and striking off each day you stick with your routine. And at the end of the period, you will have your habit streak.
But this too has its own limitations. By using a regular calendar, you will be able to track only one habit at a time and you may not be able to customize the visuals to make it more motivating and aesthetically pleasing.
Why Use A Bullet Journal Habit Tracker?
One of the very effective ways of tracking your habits is by creating a habit tracker bullet journal. This way not only can you track multiple habits at a time but also modify them to suit your taste.
Now you must be wondering what is the need to track my habits? Well, habit tracking is powerful and highly effective because of three main reasons:
- Tracking your habits creates a visual cue that will remind you to take action.
- It is encouraging to see the progress that you are making. By tracking your progress, you will not want to break the streak.
- It feels fulfilling to log your success at the moment.
This article consists of a list of 25 habit trackers that you may use or take inspiration from to make one for yourself.
