While I love all of the gorgeous hand-drawn bullet journal templates, I know that mine will never look quite as pretty, so I often look for printable bullet journal templates. One of my most used templates is a habit tracker template and it works great in a bullet journal. I’m also including 50 habit tracker ideas to help you get started.

In this post I will answer the questions:

  • Why should you add a habit tracker to your bullet journal?
  • What is habit tracking?
  • What should you track in your bullet journal habit tracker?
  • Why does habit tracking work?
  • What should I track in a habit tracker? 50 ideas for you.

Why should you add a habit tracker to your bullet journal?

One benefit of using your bullet journal to track your habits is that they are super portable and easy to keep with you. Rather than carrying around a larger, bulky planner, a bullet journal is usually about 6″ x 8 1/4. It is usually not very thick and doesn’t typically have big ring binding to get in the way.

What is a Habit Tracking?

To give you a quick overview, habit tracking is simply a way to keep a record of your daily, weekly, or monthly habits. Because it usually takes at least a few weeks to stick to a new habit, having a way to track your progress is really helpful. You can read my detailed post about Habit Tracking post here.

There’s a saying, “Motivation is what gets you started.” I think this is true for creating and sticking with new habits. Half the battle is staying motivated.

Why does habit tracking work?

A habit is “a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up.”

I love that definition because the end gives me hope. “hard to give up”. When we are trying to create helpful or healthy habits one of the biggest hurdles is your mindset. Feeling like you’re just going to fail. This is why habit tracking is so helpful. Watching your progress over time can become super motivating and creates sort of a game, where you try to create a streak of success. I’m a super competitive person so making it a game keeps me super motivated.

What You’ll Need to add this Printable Habit Tracker in to your Bullet Journal

Things you’ll Need to Printing your Daily Schedules

A GOOD PRINTER I recently purchased the HP ENVY 6055 printer and I love it. The print quality is excellent and I signed up for HP Instant Ink and get automatic ink delivery. I signed up for the 50 pages/month plan and pay just $2.99/mo. Color, black and white, and photos all cost the same and are included in your printing. Ink, shipping, and recycling are included. If you purchase an HP Printer you can sign up and get 1 FREE MONTH FREE INK – clicking here.

QUALITY PRINTER PAPER – I may be a paper snob but I love good quality paper. My favorite paper for printables is this one. It is super bright white, smooth, and a nice thickness so you don’t get too much bleed through. If you want a more premium paper I highly suggest trying this super-premium presentation paper. It’s lovely!

LAMINATOR – I’ve had this laminator for over 10 years and it’s as good as new. It is super affordable too!

✻ I like these INEXPENSIVE LAMINATING SHEETS.

PAPER CUTTER – I love this paper trimmer because it’s thin and doesn’t take up too much room. It’s also safer if you have little hands around.

ADHESIVE TAPE – This Tombow adhesive applicator puts down tiny dots that have a great grip. You don’t need to use too much which makes it an affordable choice.

Print the Habit Tracker for your Bullet Journal

To print the habit tracker template to fit in your bullet journal simply print 1 copy of the template and cut it out. It should be about A5 (8.5×5.5). You will get 2 habit trackers on each page.

Depending on your bullet journal size you may want to increase or decrease the size a little. (see screenshot below for Mac instructions.) If you need help increasing/decreasing the size of your page on a PC click here.

It might take a few tries depending on the size of your notebook but it should print pretty close to the correct size the first time.

Once you’ve printed your page you’ll want to cut the page in half. I usually trim around my habit tracker as well, to make it fit on my page better. Then affix it to a page in your bullet journal and you’re ready to go!

This habit tracker can also be printed and added to a ring or disc-bound planner.
