Why my Bullet Journal is my life coach
We all have goals and resolutions we want to stick to. Be it losing a bit of weight, eat healthier or organize better. If you’re like me, then you know that struggle is real, especially when you’re busy. Obviously, having great resolutions is only part of the deal. But actually sticking to them and turning resolutions into habits is the tough part.
My Bullet Journal is really helping me to stay focused on resolutions I have set myself. It’s actually quite easy, if you use a habit tracker.
The steady way to accomplishing your goals
Throughout the month, I keep track of my resolutions and accomplishments with a (habit) tracker. You can design it however you like, it should just show whether you stuck to your own goals on each day of the month. Since I’m just starting out and I want to keep it simple, my goals last month were to wake up each day at 6 am and drink enough water (at least 2 liters).
I used a simple chart to keep track of how much I drank, when I wake up and a few other small things.
Here are some designs I found especially great:
Why it works so well
It works so great because when you don’t follow your own resolutions, you do get frustrated when you have to leave a day blank, or mark a goal as ‘not accomplished’. Seeing that every day when you write in your Bullet Journal can give you a motivational boost to do better every single day of the week!
