Health and Wellness Tracker Ideas
Your Bullet Journal is a great place to keep track of your health and overall wellness, here are some ideas for recording your sleep patterns, doctor’s appointments and monitoring your migraines.
Blood sugar tracker
Foods to eat and avoid
Healthy snacks list
Log of weight loss/gain
Self care activities
Things to do instead of eating
Track your sleep
Sleep, it’s the one thing most of us want more of! And of course lack of sleep leads to irritability so its a good idea to track your sleep patterns and see how much you’re actually getting each night!
If you have children think about tracking their sleep patterns in your BUJO too. My son is a terrible sleeper and when he goes through a bad patch I whip up a sleep tracker spread to monitor what’s going on.
Track your Doctor appointments
Keeping track of your family’s doctor appointments is also a good idea. I like how this layout covers several years on one page which is perfect if you don’t have to visit them too often. Tracking doctor and healthcare professional appointments is even more important if someone in your family has a health condition that requires regular monitoring or treatment, in which case you might want to dedicate a whole page per calendar year.
Monitor your migraines

Track your fitness routine
Challenges are a great way to motivate you towards meeting a goal, and you can take part in an official challenge, join up with some friends or just go ahead and challenge yourself! This tracker is a simple way of monitoring your progress towards three fitness goals.
Track your steps
If you want to increase your daily step count try a layout like this step tracker. I like how they put their daily goal as a line down the middle but left room to exceed it for those days when you can walk more than usual.
Oh and I used to try and track my steps with my iPhone but I much prefer my Fitbit Charge 2. Seeing my step count every time I check the time is pretty motivating, and I love how it prompts me to get up and move once an hour.
