What small daily habit would you start?
Because I realize not everyone tracks their habits in the same way, I just created a Habit Tracker Printable Bundle! It contains over 20 pages so you can find the tracker that works for you. Some trackers have a weekly focus and some have a monthly focus. Some include both! There is also be a habit tracker specific for tracking sleep.
Work through and try more than one printable until you find the one that works best for you.
I also have a Habit Tracker Spreadsheet if you would rather track your habits in Excel. One of the reasons I’m excited about the spreadsheet is that you get to see the word “Success” pop up if you complete your habit your goal number of days.
There is a column where you write in your success criteria (because not all habits will have the goal of 7 days per week). Once you input the right number of “X”s during the week, a green “Success” will pop up.
Just a heads-up: it’s better to open the Excel file on your desktop instead of your phone. It will be easier to view that way.
