My planner is used to track all manner of things, from meetings and appointments to thoughts and ideas but the kind of tracking I am referring to here is more specific and focuses on one action daily.
(Hydrate stickers from a weekly layout kit by Filofabulouss that I purchased and used a week ago!)
Things you can track are vast and numerous, I tend to track my liquid intake (hydration) each day and have a section tracking my social media posts (more on that later!). I have seen people track weight, steps, activity levels, sleep, periods, car mileage, food and calories, spending and saving, mood…the list is endless. So how do you track these things?
There are many ways to track things, from little stickers to stamps, codes and symbols to your very own personally designed tracker. I love these stickers from Plannerface that have a blank section for you to write in what you are tracking. I like that you can use these as daily stickers, sticking them in each day section of your spread, or to track something weekly by placing them at the beginning of your weekly spread, (or at the end!), and you can choose different color ones for different purposes such as blue for water intake, red for medication or what not. I also really love the stamp range from StudioL2E as they have a few different stamps that can be used as tracking markers. I was lucky enough to be given these by a friend (see below)
Instead of using stickers or stamps to track things, I have seen people use color coding as a way of tracking things, from little blue dashes along the day section (for water intake) to other colored dashes or dots to mark different things. I have also seen people use symbols for tracking as well, from circles to indicate that a tablet has been taken to a pink tear shape to mark the first day of a period. There is no right or wrong way to track things and like a lot of other planner related things it is about finding a system that works for you and that you utilize it.
What do you keep track of in your planner? How do you track things?
I spoke above about tracking my social media posts and making your own tracker. I couldn’t find anything suitable to track my social media posts, as I wanted to track posts that had been written, posts that had been blogged and then shared on social media. I will be showing you in Fridays post how to set up your own tracking system, so please visit again then!
Speak to you all on Friday!!!
