What to track in your bullet journal

This Blog post is from my old website before I switched to self-hosting. It was published on January 21, 2018

Recently I have been really annoyed with my Bullet Journal Spreads because I did not have a lot to write in. Most of my weekly spreads were pretty empty. This is why I decided to switch some things up as you might have seen already in my latest plan with me video. I know that a lot of people have the same problem as I have and today I want to show you a couple of ideas I came up with for my Bullet Journal

Monthly Tracking Ideas

Habit Tracker

December Habit Tracker

Every Month I track my journaling and studying habit in my Bullet Journal. If you have been following this blog for a while you probably have seen this type of tracker because I review it on this blog every month.

My blog tracker helps me a lot with collecting blog post ideas and planning ahead. Since I  found a blog tracker that is working for me I finally manage to post regularly and at least twice a week.

Meditation Tracker

A Month Of Meditation

In December I decided I wanted to develop a meditation habit. I called it my month of meditation. To motivate myself I made a special tracker for meditating and it worked really good. If you have a habit you want to develop it is a great idea to create a separate monthly tracker for this habit.

Monthly to-do list

Something I really like is having a monthly to-do list. You can go back to that list whenever you work on your weekly spreads and put some of your monthly to-dos down for that week. It helps with keeping an overview of all the things you have to get done over a longer period of time.

Other monthly tracking ideas

  • sleep log
  • goals for this month
  • mood tracker


Weekly Tracking Ideas

If you are still going to school weekly spreads are great for keeping an overview of your homework. Whenever I get homework I write them down on the date they were given and once I have finished them I cross them out. This way I always know what I still have to finish that week.

Another great idea for students is to track your upcoming exams in your weekly spread. Every week I have a little exam tracker where I write down the next two weeks and mark the days I have an exam. This way I always know what and when I have to start studying for a certain class.

Daily and weekly to-dos

In my weekly spreads, I always have a section for things I want to get done or work on that week but I also started to make little to-do lists for each day. This way I stay way more organized and I am less likely to forget to do something.

Other weekly tracking ideas

  • mood tracker
  • sleep log
  • drinking habit
  • “one line a day” (write down one sentence that describes your day every day)
