82 Daily Habits To Track To Build Positive Habits

Tracking your habits is an incredible way to help you really build and stick to new, positive habits. And if you are reading this then there is a solid chance that you already know that! Which is why you are reading this. But knowing which daily habits are logical to track and implement into your life can be overwhelming. Which is why today I am sharing these 82 daily habits to track to build positive habits!

Before we jump into these ideas for daily habits to track I want to cover some tips for how to track habits. I personally believe using a bullet journal is one of the best ways to track habits so these tips are geared at that.

Tips for starting to track new habits:

Tip 1: If you don’t already have a bullet journal and thin markers/pens make sure to get those so you can start tracking the habits.  I use this bullet journal and these pens and love them!

Tip 2: For inspiration on how to decorate the page to track each habit then open up Pinterest and search the habit name + bullet journal.

Tip 3: 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.

Tip 4: 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.

Also, I want to remind you that it is unrealistic to incorporate all 82 of these daily habits into your life at once. So go through this list and pick the ones that stand out to you the most. And that you think will make the biggest difference in your life. It is so much better to add them slowly and make the habits truly apart of your daily life compared to trying to add a bunch at once and getting overwhelmed!

So now that we have covered those tips for tracking new habits let’s jump into the full list of daily habits to track to build positive habits.
