Habits become habitual when they become a subconscious part of your daily or weekly routine, so to make or break these habits, you have to be intentional about it. Choosing to partake in a particular habit (or not!) takes awareness and accountability, both of which can be acquired from using a monthly habit tracker.
Tracking your habits and routines can help you to become more aware of the things you do and the ways in which you spend your time. Paying attention to these habits can help you make (and break!) routines in areas that you want to focus on.

What is a Monthly Habit Tracker?
A monthly habit tracker is a simple grid chart to record the frequency of your daily/weekly habits for the entire month. This allows you to view your entire month of routines at a glance to see which habits you want to pay more attention to and which behaviors you might wish to change.
Using a habit tracker encourages mindfulness and self-accountability and can lead to more consistent behaviors and routines.
How to Use a Habit Tracker:
Using a habit tracker is as easy as selecting the habits and behaviors you’d like to track and focus on, and then checking off the grid box for each day that you accomplish/participate in that habit. Easy peasy!
Types of Habit Tracking Recording:
You can opt to fill out the habit tracking matrix in any way that you choose, but here are a few of the most popular recording methods (as illustrated above):
- Track with Color-by-Day: Assign each day in the tracker wheel a color, and color in the habits for each day with the designated color.
- Track with Dots or Checks: or Xs, or / marks, or teeny little hearts ♥ – whatever you like!
- Track with Color-by-Habit: Assign each circular habit ring its own color, and use that same color for the designated task every day as you move throughout the monthly circle.
- Track in Black and White: Keep things simple by filling in the habit tracking boxes in bold black and white.
There’s really no right or wrong style of habit track recording, so long as the tracked information is accurate and easily readable!
What Habits Should I Track?
There are a multitude of different habits that you may wish to track in your circle habit tracker, but we recommend focusing on tasks and habits that you are aiming to complete daily, or at least weekly.
Some popular examples of habits to track are:
- Exercise/Go to the Gym
- Journal/Gratitude Journaling
- Drink X Amount of Water
- Walk/Run X Steps or Miles
- No Alcohol
- Cook Dinner at Home
- Make Bed
- Go to Bed before 10:00
- Floss Your Teeth
- Take Vitamins/Medications
- No Soda/Sugar
- Business Goals (such as contacting one potential lead each day)
- Call or Check In with a Friend or Family Member
In the habit tracker examples above, I demonstrated tracking:
- Drink Water (water, and more water!)
- Get Up & Move Your Body
- Set Intentions for the Day
- Read at Least One Chapter
- Meditate & Quiet Reflection
- No Phone Before Bedtime (an hour before bed)
- Walk 10k Steps
Really, the habits that you choose to track are entirely up to you! Focus on habits that you would like to develop to enrich your life and habits that will add more enjoyment to your day.
How to Use This Tracker in a Bullet Journal:
To use our printable habit tracker in a bullet journal, download and print the A5 sized tracker (available below). We highly recommend printing the tracker on to printable matte vinyl sticker paper! I use PaperMate Flair pens with my sticker paper trackers, and the ink colors apply smoothly and are bold and vivid with no smearing.
Trim the tracker to size using scissors or a paper trimmer.
Peel the backing from the sticker paper (or use a glue stick to apply adhesive to the back if you printed on standard paper), and place the habit tracker into the bullet journal.
Use scissors or a round corner punch to trim any excess if your bullet journal has rounded page corners.
Choose your habits and start tracking! You might be surprised at what you discover about yourself!
