Keep Up On Your Wellbeing With These Five Bullet Journal Trackers

Life goes by so fast. Every single day, I take a look at my calendar and think “How the hell did I get here?” It’s already almost the end of October and to me, it feels like it was January… yesterday. Beyond the days and months going by unbelievably fast, I also feel like my mental health and wellbeing get away from me too. I feel like I never have the time to really take care of myself as I should. When I finally decided this needed to stop, and that I needed to spend some extra time on my wellbeing, I didn’t know how. That was until I learned about bullet journaling. Here are some ideas for bullet journal trackers so that you can keep track of all of the things that matter.

Habit Tracker

Habit trackers are great, especially when you can fit all of the important habits onto one or two pages! On a habit tracker, you can track the days you used your bullet journal, the days you exercised, the days you drank enough water, the days you had your period (if you have one), the days you got enough sleep, and anything else you want to keep track of. Having habit trackers like these motivate me to want to do the things listed, just because the feeling of coloring it in, checking it off, or highlighting it is so great. Just like crossing things off of a to-do list, habit trackers give you that tiny bit of serotonin that motivates you to take care of yourself. 

Sleep Tracker

While this one could be included in your “habit tracker” page, you might want to dive deeper into your sleep schedule. Highlighting the hours you slept might motivate you to regulate your schedule, especially if you often stay up too late (or sleep in too late). Seeing a chart like this so visually also makes it easier for you to regulate your sleep schedule and for you to understand your patterns better, especially if you’re a visual person like me!

Mood Tracker

I’ve seen so many beautiful mood tracker designs! If you’re not an artist, you don’t have to design something this extreme, but it could be fun! Either way, you’ll need 28-31 spaces (depending on what month it is) and a color key. Each color pertains to a specific mood, and when you color the day in, that was how you felt that day. I like mood trackers because it gives you time to reflect on your day and all of the good and bad things that may have happened that day. I’m a pretty optimistic person, so it really gives me a chance to count my blessings and to reevaluate if my bad day was even that bad after all.

Cleaning Tracker

This is one I severely needed. While cleaning isn’t necessarily part of mental health, the area you live and exist in definitely has huge effects on you. I work from home, so if my room gets messier and messier so does my mind. I feel like I can’t stay on top of anything, or keep track of anything because my room feels that way physically. Using a cleaning tracker to stay on task with your cleaning can really help. You don’t have to go to the extremes and vacuum your room every day, but doing something as little as putting your pens away might help you feel loads better.

Book tracker

This is one of my favorite pages in my bullet journal. Personally, I realized that I needed a hobby. As aforementioned, I work from home. This means that I am constantly sitting around in my room, either writing on my laptop or staring at my phone. When I’m not working, I find myself wasting hours of my time on my phone scrolling through TikTok, Instagram, or another social media app. While I am a big fan of social media, this is not a healthy pastime for me. So, I started reading again like I used to. Maybe reading isn’t your thing, but I love reading and so making a book tracker helped me read as much as I could, instead of otherwise wasting my time. You can track how many books you read a month, or like me, separate your books into ratings (from 1 star to Favorites of All Time).
