If you have a desire to reach your goals, track your progress, and stay on top of things, these Habit Tracker Printables are for you. You’ll find everything from planning a garden to money saving challenges in this post.
What is in this Printable?
This eight page printable includes seven pages of categorized monthly trackers and one page with ideas for ideas on good habits to establish. There are pages for health and fitness, cleaning, self care, relationships, habits to break, and personal development. I even included a blank sheet in case their was a category that is unique to you.
How to Use
Choose the tracker that applies to your goals and write in the month that you want to track. Then, write in the habit you are targeting on the left hand side.
For each day you acted on that habit, circle in the corresponding day. At the end of the month, print another page and repeat!
I find it best to post this in a prominent place, like the refrigerator, so you can see it every day. If it is printed and visible, you are much more likely to accomplish it.
What are Good Daily Habits?
Good daily habits are small things that you can do every single day to make your life easier and better. It takes some discipline to stick to a plan, but you will feel so much more accomplished when you do.
If you find it difficult to stick to projects and ideas, you most likely need to form good daily habits to accomplish this. We have all been there, but with a little bit of effort your goals can be met and you will feel much less stressed!
A printable will definitely help you keep on track!
Why Should I Track Daily?
Tracking daily is so important to form a true habit. If you don’t commit to daily tracking, it’s going to be just something you do sometimes, and it won’t really form a long lasting habit.
So, even on the days when you are tired, stressed, and just don’t feel like doing it, it’s important to stick with it. You’ll thank yourself in the long run!
How to Stop Bad Habits Permanently?
Bad habits can be stopped permanently if you set your mind to it and stick to your plan. It may not be easy and you may have days when you backtrack some, but you need to be forgiving, brush yourself off and start again! These tips will help you say “goodbye” to bad habits once and for all:
Don’t Take On Too Much:
I know it’s tempting to jump in with an all-or-nothing mindset. However, this is a bad habit in itself and will set you up for failure.
Instead, start small with one simple habit and once you have that one down, go ahead and incorporate another habit later. Continue this process until you have easily managed habits that have become your new routine.
For example, let’s say you want to give up eating out for breakfast at a fast food chain. Start small by only eating out breakfast three days a week instead of five. It may not seem like a lot, but it’s a much easier goal and your chances of success are much higher. Do this for a week or two, then cut back one more day until you finally reach your goals.
Visualization Is Key
Part of getting your mind right and ready to go is to visualize the outcome you want. Your mind plays an important role in success and those visualizations are great practice.
Let’s say you want to lose weight and pick up healthy habits. Imagine your life if you lost that weight! Visualize what you will look like, how your clothes will fit and all the different activities you can participate in without the extra weight. It’s great motivation and it costs you NOTHING!
Don’t Keep It A Secret
While you don’t have to jump on social media and blurt it to the world, it’s a great idea to build a foundation of support from your family and friends.
Telling people close to you that you know will actually support your adventure is a great way to be successful. They can check in with you on how things are going and can even be there to prevent you from making bad choices.
It’s vital to stay away from the negative thinkers and people who won’t support you. I don’t mean stay away from them completely, but limit the conversations you have with them about the particular habit you are making. They may try to sabatoge your thoughts and you may find yourself questioning your decisions.
Understand Mistakes Happen
No one is perfect and no matter how much you try to prepare, you will have some slipups, especially in the beginning. That is OKAY! Don’t beat yourself up over one little mistake or even a group of several mistakes.
Tomorrow is a new day to start fresh and brand new. You CAN do this, so stick with it.
Consider Your Surroundings
Your surroundings are so important to your success. Imagine if you are trying to cut back on spending on dining out. Well, it wouldn’t make sense to go to lunch every day with friends that want to dine out.
Instead, pack a lunch and go to a local park or take a walk instead. If you go and sit in the lunchroom at work, you may be tempted to go order your food instead of eating what you bring. Or you may feel tempted to leave with your friends and dine at the local buffet.
Whatever habit you are trying to break, your environment can make you break you.
How Many New Habits Can I Start at Once?
It’s vital to start small and with one habit at a time. For example, if you want to start meal prepping you shouldn’t go out and buy all the food you need for one month’s worth of meals. If you do, by the time those meals are prepped you are going to be exhausted and will probably never want to do it again.
Instead, start with meal prepping one or two meals at a time. This gives you a taste of the process and won’t be so overwhelming. Then, the next time meal prep a little bit more until you have a system and it’s not so stressful.
Do Habit Trackers Actually Work?
Yes, absolutely habit trackers work. You will need a positive attitude, practice, and time to make them successful. You won’t be able to just wake up one day and say “I am going to save $5,000 today” and magically have $5,000 saved! It takes work, time and energy. But you can make it happen.
Using a daily habit tracker is a fantastic way to visualize and see your progress as it happens. They can be the difference between success and failure.
Seven Habits to Track
Here are seven areas of your life that can benefit from a daily, weekly, or monthly habit tracker. Keep in mind that these habit trackers are intended to help you, not stress you out. So, only use what you need and start slowly so you do not get overwhelmed.
This blog post isn’t going anywhere, so be sure to bookmark it and come back as often as you need.
What just might be the most important habit, is Self Care! If you don’t take care of yourself, it’s next to impossible to be truly successful in other areas.
As humans, we naturally have an instinct to take care of others and more often than not, forget about ourselves. Using a Wellness Printable Journal is a great way to give yourself the self care you deserve! This journal will help you set goals for yourself, track your habits, and reminds you how important happy moments are.
Give yourself time to recharge and be sure to do kind things for yourself, like go get that massage or buy a new outfit. You DESERVE it!
One of the most useful daily habit trackers is going to be health-related. Why? Because it’s an area that most of us can benefit from and when you see a game-plan printed out, it’s easier to stick to.
Plus, being able to track your progress is so important to give yourself the motivation to keep going and reach your goals.
I have the ultimate Health and Fitness Binder to set yourself up for success. The reason why this 30 day habit tracker is so useful is that it’s filled with SMART goals. SMART is an acronym for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely. Using SMART goals will allow you to make a game plan that is ideal for YOU and your fitness journey.
