Here is Rose Kurmann ( @littlemissrose) with a tutorial on how to make a habit tracker in your bullet journal.
In this post, I’ll show you how to put together a habit tracker spread for your bullet journal. Before you start, you’ll need to decide what habits you want to track for the month. I suggest choosing between 8-10 habits that you really want to either focus on creating or breaking.
- A notebook with a dot grid (such as Kelly Creates Travel Practice Journal)
- Pencil, eraser and ruler from Kelly Creates Deluxe Lettering Kit
- Kelly Creates Multicolor small brush pens
- Kelly Creates Multicolor fine liners
- Kelly Creates Black fine liners
To begin, I’ve drafted out my boxes for my habits using pencil from Kelly Creates Deluxe Lettering Kit. Each box is two squares from the sides of the pages and 2 squares high.
Then using Kelly Creates small brush pen in Blossom, I added the heading “habit tracker”.
I created a gradient effect on the heading by going over the lettering on the top half of the letters on the first word, and then on the bottom half of the letters on the second word. I used a Kelly Creates small brush pen in Blossom.
To add a bit more interest to the heading, I added a simple drop shadow using a Kelly Creates fine liner in Storm. To do this, just draw lines alongside the letters to the right and below. Try to imagine a light shining down on your lettering from the top left hand side of your journal creating a shadow.
Next I used a Kelly Creates black fine liner in size 03 to ink in my boxes. Within each box, I drew 32 squares on the right hand side of the boxes. I filled in the last square, leaving 31 little squares available to mark off for every day of the month. You can make the adjustment for a 30 day month if needed. Write in your habits that you plan on tracking into each month.
Finally, I hand-lettered a simple quote at the bottom of the page. You can number the squares in each box with the days of the month, which will make it a lot easier to fill in your tracker at the end of each day. As you can see, I’ve left my little squares blank as I prefer the more minimal look, but this does make it a bit trickier to fill in your tracker especially if you don’t do it every day!
