I am someone who craves routine. I live and breathe by my structured days and when I am thrown off my usual routine, I feel very anxious and confused. 

I also am someone who wants to, and likes to, do a lot of things. I want to be the best version of myself and have really healthy habits but because my mind is always a chaotic place, it's hard to stay on track. I will start incorporating products or routines into my daily life but after a while, I get distracted and lose track.

A few months ago, I found that I was really craving more structure when it comes to my wellness routine. I wanted to make sure I was doing things I wanted on a daily/weekly basis. I wanted something to tell me what to do every single day of the week. These habits are meant to enrich my life and not seem too much like a checklist... but how should I stay on top of things without being overwhelmed?

Enter my habit tracker.

I spoke about this in my most recent wellness product post and said I wanted to do a full review because I love it so much.

I tried a number of different habit trackers over the years but I've found that this one is the easiest to use. It's user friendly, aesthetically pleasing and totally customizable. If I'm going to be using an app every single day, it's super important to me that it's easy to use.

Within the app you can set the habit time, so you can choose if you want to check items off daily, weekly, monthly, or really any timeframe you might want. Most of my habits are daily but I have a few set for a few times a week.

The daily habits are:

  • Water intake (at least 80oz per day but I drink a lot more than that)
  • Journaling
  • Reading a book
  • Vitamins
  • Meditation
  • Nighttime skincare routine 

On a weekly basis I try to do the following 1-3 times a week:

  • Learning aka taking an online course I have previously bought
  • Book writing (I have a few projects I'm working on and I want to motivate myself to write a few times per week)
  • Exercise (I have a goal of 2 hours of exercise per week and most times I hit that)
It's very rare that I don't hit all points on my daily tracker. On my weekly tracker, I could be better about writing and learning but that's the entire point of the tracker, to keep things top of mind when your life gets a little too hectic. 

Experts say that you can create a habit within 21 days and I totally believe that's true. I feel so much better having this tracker at my fingertips because every day it feels like I'm doing something for myself. 

If I know I have to do something, I will do it...I just needed a way to keep track, organize my thoughts and wants. I had an idea of what my wellness routine should be but my thoughts were so wild, I simply couldn't focus.

Also, when you complete all your habits in one day, you get a little confetti party and who doesn't love that bit of reward? 

If you are someone who likes structure and wants to incorporate healthier habits into your life yet don't know where to start, I cannot recommend this habit tracker enough. If an app doesn't work for you, try just keeping a habit journal.

My life and wellness routine has been changed for the better because I'm constantly trying to better my mind, body and spirit and it lights a fire under my butt to do at least one or two good things for myself every single day or week. It has helped me kick bad habits, start new ones and stay positive.

What are your thoughts on a habit tracker? Would you use one?
