But first let’s go through how to set up a daily habit tracker and what kind of things you can track with one.

What is a daily habit tracker?
Daily habit tracker is a sheet of paper or a page in you planner where you track things you’d like to do and accomplish daily.
Note that the habit tracker is not only for the things you do or would like to do every single day. You can also track things that occur every other day or a few times a week.
Here’s an example how a your tracker could look like:
How to set up a daily habit tracker
Setting up your habit tracker is super simple:
- Choose your method: printable, sheet of paper, bullet journal, planner or a page/a spread in your notebook
- Draw lines for your habits and create up to 31 little boxes next to it
- Choose the daily habits you’d like to track (check out the 40+ ideas I’ve written on this post or create your own).
If you’d like to create your own daily habit tracker, the simplest way is to just to take a sheet of paper where you draw lines and write the daily habit you’d like to track. And next to the line you’ll draw boxes for each day of the month (for example in March you’ll have 31 boxes).
You can also use a page (or a spread) in your notebook or bullet journal to keep track on your daily habits.
Or you can skip this step and just print the free daily habit tracker printable at the end of this post and start immediately.
Extra tip #1: Use the paper as landscape (not portrait) because there’s going to be up to 31 little boxes for each day. If you use a notebook you can also use a whole spread (not just one page) to create your habit tracker.
Extra tip #2: If you’d like to create the tracker on your notebook or bullet journal then start writing the numbers from the last day (31st) and work your way to the beginning so you’ll definitely have enough dates if by chance you miscalculated (I did that and had to do it all over again!).
Extra tip #3: And it’s ok if someday you don’t succeed with your daily goal. There’s always the next day. As long as you don’t give up! Week after week and month after month you’ll see results and you can feel good about yourself.
How to do the tracking with your daily habit tracker
To track your daily habits is easy. If you’ve done your daily habit you’ll color the box for that day. Simple as that!
Or if you’re not a big fan of coloring, a simple check mark or a big X will do!
You can color code your topics and habits or you can create an elegant black and white daily habit tracker. Either way, the most important thing is to follow through.
And you can track anything with your daily habit tracker. And I mean anything!
I’ve written 40+ ideas you can track in your daily habit tracker. But don’t start tracking all of them. Choose the ones that you really want to concentrate on and start with a few.
The idea of the tracker is for you to try to form a habit, so there’s no need to track things that come naturally for you like sleeping or waking up. But you can track those nights you got 8 hours of sleep or those mornings you woke up before 6 am if those are some habits you’d like to have.
And entering your daily habits to your tracker is already one habit you can track!

And many times I don’t need or want anything so my Saturday gift is an experience or a nice self-care moment.
