Habit Tracker Template: Free Printable PDF and Download
If you’re reading this… I’m going to go out on a limb here and say you want to be better.
A better person.
I can go on.
But I won’t.
Because what you strive to be better at isn’t as important as whether or not you actually do it.
And developing good habits can be a challenge in itself.
After all, it’s one thing to want to improve yourself… improve your life… but how you do it becomes key.
You need to make time for your habits.
You need to track them.
Whether you’re on a quest for mental or physical well-being, financial security or simply a new hobby… you need to keep yourself accountable in order to make things happen.
Nobody is going to babysit you goals.
Only you can do that.
And lucky for you, I’ve put together a few monthly habit tracker charts to help you along.
Not unlike a fitness tracker that reminds you to walk more, drink water and get more sleep… my printable charts will help keep you on track for success.
Simply mark off the days you succeed in reaching a goal… and leave spaces blank when you don’t.
The goal is to create a visual accountability chart to keep you on point.
I’ve created a printable and customizable Monthly Habit Tracker.
It is clean, simple.
Just write in as few or as many new habits as you’d wish to take on, and check the box each day you accomplish your goal.
If you miss a day, simply leave it blank.
It’s that easy.
On Monthly Habit Trackers
Monthly habit trackers provide a “larger picture” approach to keeping on task with your goals.
Weekly trackers are great if you are a self-starter and need very little help to get going. You are disciplined enough to be accountable for your actions each week and enjoy more immediate gratification.
Conversely, a monthly tracker is about quantity. It gives your goals the appearance of being larger and thus can create a greater feeling of accomplishment and self worth in the end.
Imagine telling your friends and family that you ran 20 times last month?
Personally, I think it has a nicer ring to it than, “I ran five times last week”.
That’s wonderful… but did you keep it going all month? Or did you only run one time the next week, and two times the one after that?
My suggestion… print out the monthly tracker that most appeals to you, even enlarge it, and place it somewhere prominent. Someplace you can’t help but notice it.
Then take a deep breath, channel what you’re seeking… and make it happen!
