habit tracking || IN YOUR PLANNER

Habit tracking is something that has been wildly popular within the bullet journal community for quite some time now.  Lately, this method of attaining goals has made way into other planners.  In "notes" sections, in "sidebars", or even laminated and added in.  Habit tracking is actually incredibly useful whether you're a CEO, Entrepreneur, stay at home Mom, etc.  Habit tracking can be a crucial step in achieving your goals and getting stuff done.


I have been keeping my habit tracking in the sidebar of my Limelife planner.  I've recently read the Miracle Morning and completing my morning and nightly routine every single day has become very important to me.  I have several personal habits that I'm tracking within those routines.  The main one is taking better care of my skin.  I work primarily from my home office so I rarely wear makeup anymore.  This has caused me to really slip on my skincare routine.  If I'm not taking makeup off at night, my mind forgets the rest and I go on to bed.  I recently turned 33, so skincare is definitely something I need to get back to paying attention to.


I decided I needed to browse for some skincare for my habit tracking.  I wandered into Wal-Mart and while in the skincare isle, my eyes were drawn to Rollback stickers for CeraVe.  There were the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser, the CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser, and the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream.  They're on Rollback to $9.97 until 5/9/16.  So I grabbed all 3 and then also picked up the CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion and the CeraVe Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 50.  I don't see a lot of sun to be honest, haha, but our family is taking a vacation this summer.


CeraVe helps replenish the vital ceramides healthy skin needs.  I have sensitive skin and CeraVe products are non-irritating, fragrance fee, and most are non-comedogenic.  Both cleansers remove dirt, oil, and makeup.  The Hydrating Cleanser cleanses while ceramides and hyaluronic acid moisturize, soften, and help repair the skin barrier.  The CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion moisturizes while providing broad spectrum sun protection.


One of my favorite products I picked up out of all of them was the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream.  It moisturizes while restoring the protective skin barrier with vital ceramides.  Only CeraVe delivers ceramides through a patented, controlled-release technology that penetrates the skin's surface, to help rebuild the skin's protective barrier and lock in moisture all day. This cream is non-greasy and has done wonders on my dry elbows and feet.  It's pretty much sandal weather already in Kansas so it's time to take care of those feet!  


I loved this mission statement from CeraVe:
Developed with dermatologists, our mission is to provide advanced skincare products that do more than just moisturize the skin’s surface. CeraVe is the first and only brand to offer a full line of skin care products that contain an exclusive combination of three scientifically-identified vital ceramides. CeraVe products penetrate the skin’s surface, infuse it with moisture, and lock it in for truly long-lasting results and beautiful, healthy looking skin.

Like I mentioned above, I track my habits in the sidebar of my Limelife planner.  I am tracking: Workouts completed, Miles completed, Daily Vitamins, Daily Reading, AM routine, and PM routine.  I also track my water intake on each day in my planner.


You can be as elaborate or as simple as you'd like with your tracking.  What I do is use my stamps from Sweet Stamp Shop to notate what I'm tracking.  Here I'm creating my AM routine & PM routine trackers.  I ink up my stamp with whatever color I want for the week and stamp down the sidebar leaving space for circles.  I create the circles with a Staedtler stencil to make perfect circles.  


Depending on the width of where you're putting your tracker you can do all 7 circles in one row, or 4 and 3.  It's completely up to you.  This method has been working great for me!  I love how it looks and how easy it is to create.  I can also quickly flip through past weeks to see how my progress is going.  Am I succeeding in making this a true habit or am I still forgetting and struggling?

It has been said that it takes about 66 days to successfully form a habit.  Do you track habits in your planner?  What do you use and have you been successful?  I'd love to know!  Let me know in the comments below.
