Bullet journals are a fantastic way to track your habits and they can really help you stay on track to achieving your goals and improving yourself.
Tracking habits is the best way to turn them into life long habits and change them from something that you are just trying to do into a lifestyle change.
Bonus: tracking habits in your bullet journal is also a great creative outlet.

So how do I track habits in a bullet journal?
Step 1) Determine what habits you want to start tracking. Think about your goals and what you want to accomplish to help you pick what habits are the most important for you.
Step 3) For inspiration on how to decorate the page to track each habit then open up Pinterest and search the habit name + bullet journal.
Step 4) Keep your bullet journal somewhere accessible so that you can track the habits. Especially if they are something that you track throughout the whole day (like drinking water) rather than once a day or once a week.
Step 5) After completing the time you originally started tracking the habit then take a bit to evaluate the habits. If you feel you can continue to do these habits without tracking them then you can stop but in general it is good to track a habit for at least 3 months to ensure that it truly becomes a habit.
