Mid-Month Habit Check – What to do if You and Your Habits Were on a Break

What to do if You and Your Habits Were on a Break? I feel like Ross shouting at my habits “We were on a break!” or maybe my habits were yelling at me? Not sure which, either way, we parted ways for a while. I had good intentions, and I swear this month I thought I was going to rock at everything. But I just crashed and burned. So what to do if you and your habits were on a break? I used a simple shift in mindset to recapture the flame after a habit break-up. Is It Just February […]

Creating Habits: Dishes aren’t a Dirty Word Anymore! + Video

Last Month’s Review For last month I am happy to announce I fulfilled one of my ‘habits’ every day of the month. I posted on Instagram every day!(Lol) I’m so proud of myself. Creating habits is not an easy feat as you can see from my other habits on the tracker. Dishes – Not a Dirty Word Anymore One habit surprised me: Dishes. In September, I posted that ‘dishes’ was the d-word and apologized for saying it so many times. Admittedly, as long as I can remember I have hated doing the dishes. When it was my turn for Sunday dishes […]

December Mid-Month Habit Check

December Habit Tracker: Habit Check I started the mid-month habit check a couple of months ago, without thinking it would become a thing, but it was quite by accident. I’ve made a habit of checking up on my habits mid-month. I almost hesitate to call it a habit because me and habits (except the bad ones) don’t get along in the best way. Though I am trying to make friends with them. You know, start with casual conversation and work up to the ‘friends’ thing. I’d like to be friends, but they seem snobbish. Did I just seriously go there? […]

December Weekly: I Triple Dog Dare You!

December Week 3: I Double Dog Dare You -To Get Stuff Done

It’s the Middle of the Month! The To Do List Gets Real! A Busy Week! There’s no time for sticking my tongue to a flagpole, even if I were triple-dog dared. The hubby’s birthday is the end of the week and that means just over a week until Christmas! It’s always about this time of the month that I realize that half the month is gone and if I want to knock out that to do list, I had better get into high gear. It is also about this time the month where I assess my habits and see how […]

Habits and Moods mirror each other & provide daily insight, half-circled mirrored bullet journal layout

November Mid-Month Habit and Mood Tracker Check

November Mid-Month Habit Check + Mood Tracker Update When I sat down to start writing this post, I realized this is the monthly insight into my life. There are so many emotions tied to habits, so many excuses, so many passions. I can’t write about my habit tracker {and now added mood tracker} without being a little more personal. Of all the things I have in my bullet journal, my habits and my moods show the most insight into my life on a day-to-day basis. So here is a monthly update on my Habit and Mood Trackers. November 2017 – […]

In a habit slump? Do a mid-month habit check to reignite your motivation

Mid-Month Habit Check – October

Need some re-motivation in the middle of the month? Do a Mid-Month Habit Check. I started doing a mid-month habit check a couple of months ago. The beginning of the month I am completely motivated and know that I am going to conquer all of my desires and do all the things. Well, that’s what I intended to do anyway. By the middle of the month, it seems that I have lost steam and I need a boost of motivation. So the middle of the month, I do a quick assessment of my habits which re-motivates me to keep going […]

Mid-Month Habit Tracker Check-up

Habits. Sorry for the dirty word. Mid-Month Habit Tracker Checkup

Updated 1/9/18 Habits. Sorry for the dirty word. It can even be a dirty word when you are doing something clean like straightening up or doing the dishes (please pardon the d-word). Here is a mid-month check-up of my September habit tracker. It is much improved from last month or the month before. In the past, I would create habit trackers and never complete them. But that’s the thing, I wanted to complete them. Eventually, I would fill out a couple of boxes on a habit tracker, but nothing real. I was tracking too many habits. So this month, I decided to […]

minimal weekly squared layout 12x12 squares down the center of the page with lettered days of the week

Minimal Open-Side Square Weekly Spread

Minimal Open-Side-Square Weekly Spread {with Monday Start} Great layout for a minimalist design the names on the side added variety to change-up the layout.   The day-to-day planning is down the center of the page (except Sunday) and all the other planning is on the edge of the pages. I left a big part of the page on the right for a quote or to do list. You’ll notice that the week starts on Monday. Not typical for the calendar I use, but I’ve really been liking the Monday start to the week. Whether it’s in my head or not, […]

Master Project Checklist More efficient to do list-ing

Eliminate the Same To Do List – Create a Master Project Checklist

I love ‘to do’ lists. They help organize my brain. Once I get it down on paper, I’m free to think of other things that could be put down on a different list. But to do list-ing (is that a thing?) is tedious if you record the same ‘to dos’ for every project.   In an earlier post, I showed you how to set up a habit tracker in your bullet journal – tasks done every day to form habits. Read the post here. I thought about that layout and decided to transform the same format into a framework for […]

Intro Graphic - How to Create a Bullet Journal Habit Tracker

How to Set Up a Habit Tracker in your Planner

Do you like the idea of a Habit Tracker in your Bullet Journal, but don’t know where to start? Do you run out of room when numbering in a month? (Yes, I have done it too.) I’ve put together some best practices for planning, laying out and implementing your horizontal Bullet Journal/Planner Monthly Habit Tracker. Best Practices I like to create my Habit Tracker horizontally (long ways) So since I am starting with the horizontal layout, so I turn my journal the way I will view the habit tracker – it makes it easier to create and visualize what I […]
