Want to get creative, and add a personal touch to your bullet journal daily log? If you have the time, creating a daily log layout, suited just to your needs, can be lots of fun. You can include things like meal planners, mini trackers, water intake, brain dump, to-do list or appointments. Designing a layout that works well usually involves some trial and error. A printable daily log template can take away some of the work, and provide you with a great base to start creating your own personal layout. I receive lots of questions and requests about my own daily log layout, so I’ve turned it into a printable template that you can use too! I’m also sharing ideas for using this layout, and tips for how to create your own bullet journal daily log.

I’m sharing those tips today to help you get the most from your habit tracker. Plus, I’ve designed a simple printable habit tracker that you can download for free and get started with straight away.
