My Favorite Bullet Journal Trackers for Productivity | Sea Lemon


Hello, it’s Jennifer from Sea Lemon you guys have been asking for more bullet journal videos so today I want to share with you three trackers that I’ve been really liking lately they’ve been helping me stay more productive and on track with achieving my goals You’ll be able to tell from this video that I like my layouts a little bit more minimal but you can feel free to add and embellish them more if you’d like and if you want to know my bullet journal set up like my pages, the binding, the covers that I use everything is in this video right here and I will also include that link in the video description below hit that like button if you want to see more bullet journal videos on this channel and I want to say that this video is sponsored by Squarespace and I will talk more about them later but for now, let’s get into it! This first one is a daily plan bar which was inspired by a post I saw on bulletjournal.com by Mike Road and you can find that link down below and if you want to know what pens I used throughout this whole video I will also link those down below I like to start out with writing the day and the date and then just putting a little box around it that’s totally optional but I just like to highlight the day in some way Then on the side of the page I start with the earliest hour of my day, which is 8 a.m. and I give each hour 2 squares so each hour has a little column and I go all the way down to the latest hour of my day which is 11 p.m. Some days will start earlier or go later so I can adjust these hours depending on the day and I highlight this column with a color because this is the main focus of the page it’s going to show me what I’m putting all my time to I list personal and work-related tasks on the right of the hour which they get completed in and throughout the day when the hours are done I fill in those columns with a pattern For personal stuff I make dots, and for work-related I make lines but you can really make any pattern you want or even use colors if you prefer When I have a lot to do during a day sometimes a regular list of tasks is just not enough for me and I like to use this daily plan bar because it helps me keep track of exactly what I’m doing each hour of the day This is especially helpful if you work for yourself or you’re freelance so you can look back at your time in the day and see what you put most of your time toward Was that personal stuff?
Was that work-related? Then you have a better idea of how to adjust your schedule in the future to whatever makes you the most productive Next is a monthly habit tracker I like to do this on a horizontal layout and list every single day of the month across the page This one will be from May, so I need 31 squares and you can see it starts on a Tuesday so I just put the letter of the day above the date and make sure to leave room on the left for a column of the habits Then I like to write the month above that and you can get as creative as you want with this you can doodle something from the month this is going to be a sunny month, so I did a little sun and now I’m making a color key for the habits You can list things that you want to consistently do throughout the month and give them colors or icons so for me is things like working out consistently throughout the month, walking my dog, staying hydrated, journaling, doodling, social posting, whatever habits you want to keep track of throughout the month and since I don’t have room to write the habits I instead represent them by their color or bullet so I list those on the side and then if I completed that habit during the day I fill in the square in that row If you use grid paper you can also highlight the dots so it’s easier to tell where the squares are I know I said I like to keep my pages minimal but doodling is one of my habits to keep track of so I decided to fill in the space with some floral doodles when the month is completed you can have a tracker that looks something like this that will show you how often you did each habit If there’s a habit you want to do more of or maybe there’s a habit you want to eliminate this tracker can hold you more accountable and make you more productive in doing so just by filling in those little squares Next I’ll show you how I make my fitness tracker You can see I laid this out with pencil first I like to make a square for each month of the year so this page is going to cover a whole year of fitness I measured out the squares based on my grid paper, and I’m highlighting the corners of each square then with a thinner pen I’m highlighting the squares in each month and writing the month inside and while I’m doing this I’m going to take this time to talk about today’s sponsor: Squarespace if you’re unfamiliar with Squarespace they provide a super easy way to make your own creative website whether you’re looking for a place to start your online shop, display your portfolio, or maybe start a blog they have really nice and modern templates to choose from you don’t have to know anything about coding to start your site and they have 24/7 customer service so there’s always someone there if you need any help you can go check out squarespace.com for a free trial and when you’re ready to launch your site go to squarespace.com/sealemon
