Trackers! Trackers are graphs or charts used to provide useful information at a glance. They can be used for a huge number of things – to trace habits, mental health, shows watched or anything else you can think of. Honestly, there isn’t much to say about trackers. My best advice is to go online and find examples of what you’re trying to create. You can then tweak your finding to create the perfect tracker.
I WILL say this – yes, there is an app for that. While I totally agree that some apps are a lot more convenient, I also believe that there is a certain sense of accomplishment in manually entering data in trackers. Of course, one person’s preference may not be another’s, but give it a try.
Below are some trackers I’ve found on Instagram to give you just a taste of what is possible!
Habit trackers are just that – a way of keeping track of your habits and to hold yourself accountable. Whether you’re trying to read more or looking to eat healthier, this is a visual representation of how well you are (or aren’t) doing.
#planwithmechallenge 12.8 Health I try to maintain a pretty healthy lifestyle, no fad diets or programs here! I track some health related items in my Monthly Tracker, but no pressure if it didn’t happen. The only improvements I feel I need to make are to do more of my physio exercises and to drink more water. A lot of the things I track are more self care items and things that make me feel good! […]
Mental Health Trackers
Mental health tracking is really popular right now and with good reason. By visually representing our mood, we can look at certain patterns and trends to help determine what can be changed. Furthermore, the act of taking your time to map out your day can be quite calming for some people.
Is anyone else freaking out because February is halfway over?? Ahhhh what is happening – time is going by so quickly!! Here’s how my mood has been going in February thus far – I set my #yearinpixels to include a morning mood & evening mood because I never feel just one constant mood throughout the day. […]
Here are some other tracker ideas to get you started! Like I said, there are so many different kinds of trackers you can create – you are only limited by your imagination. If you create you own, be sure to share it on social media to share with others.
Al 100% el #bulletjournal no lo sigo, puesto que soy un caos, y a los dos días dejaría de hacerlo, por vagancia. Pero hay muchos de sus extras que me gustan. Por ejemplo, ya es hora de organizarme con las series, así que poco a poco voy creando listas (con este súper sello que acabo de hacer) para saber por qué capítulo voy 📺🎬 #tvtracker #showtracker
You can put your trackers in your daily spread, weekly spread or anywhere you think they fit! I put mine at the end of my bullet journal and made a full year graph because I knew I wouldn’t keep up with it if I had to redo it every week or month.
Also, trackers can be done even if you don’t have a bullet journal. You can keep them by your desk at work, in the car or somewhere at home – any place that you go to often. And don’t cheat! The only person you are cheating is yourself. Be honest with your trackers.
Thanks for taking the time to read! Please visit and like all the Instagram pages above. I think it’s important to encourage creativity and ideas online, especially in a community as great as the bullet journal one.
