Habits

Do you track habits?

It's not necessary if it's something you've already built into a daily habit - like brushing your teeth, flossing, or eating a healthy breakfast. But when you want to establish a daily yoga practice or make sure you're meditating every day, how do you keep track? Using a habit tracker is a great idea for that.



You can create something like what you see above, or you can use an app like Habitica. I recommend something you'll check every day. So, if you want to create something like the habit tracker above, you'll want it in your journal, in your planner, on your fridge, at your desk, etc. Otherwise, that defeats the purpose of DAILY habit tracking. ;) An app on your phone would be helpful if you use your phone every day (like I'm sure most people do).

However, this doesn't have to be a daily thing. If you want to exercise three days a week, make a note of that and make sure you exercise three of the seven days that week. Check your tracker at the end of the week to make sure three boxes are checked. You can even outline the boxes for the days you plan to work out. Or you can shade the boxes for the days you don't plan to work out to black them out. And you can do fun things like use stickers for different colors for different things. How you track is totally up to you, so feel free to make it your own. And fun so you keep coming back!

So what should you track? Here are my suggestions:

  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Journaling
  • Meal prepping
  • Exercise
  • Listening to a podcast
  • Reading
  • Watching a TED Talk
  • Working on a class
  • Chipping away at a goal
  • Vitamins
  • Morning routine
  • Healthy breakfast
  • Green smoothies
  • Eating fruit
  • Eating veggies
  • No-meat days
  • Vegan days
  • No-spend days
  • Mood
  • No sugar
  • No soda
  • No caffeine
  • No alcohol
  • No coffee
  • No cigarettes
  • Declutter
  • Chores
  • Making the bed
  • Cook dinner
  • Social media 
  • Enough water
  • Enough sleep
  • Flossing
  • Gratitude
  • Finished to-do list
This isn't an exhaustive list. I'm sure you've thought of things I haven't thought of here for your own life. So I hope you'll give it a shot. Make your habit tracker your own and use it as a healthy tool to build great daily practices. And let me know how it goes!

Vibe high, friends.
