Why is it helpful to add trackers to your planner?

In this post, I’m sharing 150+ ideas of things to track in your planner and ways to utilize your planner best. These ideas will help maximize your planner efficiency and improve your organization. Better yet, tracking things in your planner will also make using your planner a lot more fun and motivating to use.

Once you get a good planning system in place you’ll find yourself using your planner a lot more. Tracking things inside your planner helps you build new routines and makes you more accountable. It’s harder to ignore the things you should be doing when you can see them written on paper with little boxes waiting to be checked.

From a practical standpoint, how to use a planner to track habits?

When it comes down to it, there are several ways you can track things inside your planner:

  • Stickers / Tracker stickers – to add to your planner pages.
  • Tracker planner inserts – to add a dedicated page to track one or several elements. You can either get creative and create your own page from scratch using your supplies or you can use premade printable planner inserts.
  • You can also simply use a pen or other tools to keep track of anything you want in your usual planner pages. For instance, you can use colored pens and markers or different colors of washi tapes to create a color code in your planner.

How many things should I track in my planner?

There isn’t a magic number to answer that question. I guess the right answer is “as many as you can realistically track as long as it’s still pleasant and useful”.
Whatever works best for you.
For some people, less is more. They don’t want to spend too long tracking every little detail of their life.
For some people, the more the better. They think tracking is part of the fun and love keeping counts and having statistics to encourage their positive habits. Plus, if you like decorating your planner, adding trackers is a fun way to add interest to it!

In this post, I’m being very exhaustive to give you plenty of inspiration on what to track with your planner but don’t feel pressured to add too many at once. Have fun with it, try adding a few and you’ll quickly see which ones are the most helpful to stay organized.

Ok, now that these questions are out of the way, let’s dive right in with the list of tracker ideas to help you gain inspiration and organization!
