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
for 10% off your first purchase of a website or domain and I will also include that in the description below Now I’m going over the vertical type that I made on the sides and highlighting those with a yellow zigzag so here’s my finished tracker with the 12 months and each month has four rows of squares to fill in And on the back side of the page I’m going to make the key I like to have a variety of workouts and each square will have a color that represents the workout You can adjust this depending on your fitness goals I like to do a step circuit, Just Dance, long walks / light jogs, Zumba some YouTube channels I like, as I said, I like a variety and there’s always room to add more colors if you discover other workouts throughout the year Now I have my key, and I can fill in the squares to track the days that included fitness I prefer to use light or pastel colors for this so you can still see the month below the filled in squares You can definitely adjust this to suit your fitness goals this is my second time using a page like this, and it definitely held me more accountable to accomplish my fitness goals you’d be surprised at how accomplished you feel after filling in a square with color so just the process of completing this grid motivates me more and I like that I can track what workouts I’m doing I hope you found this helpful and I’m always on the lookout for more bullet journal inspiration if there are any trackers that you’ve tried and liked share it in a comment below Don’t forget to subscribe if you haven’t already and be sure to hit that bell icon so you get notified when I post a new video otherwise you won’t know it unless you look at your YouTube feed so be sure to turn that bell icon on and sign up for those post notifications and I will put more bullet journal ideas in this playlist right here go check that out that link will be down below as well and I will see you guys in the next video Bye!

  1. Here are three bullet journal trackers that help me stay productive and accomplish my goals! More info on my bullet journal setup, pens and links in the video description. What are some of your favorite trackers?

  2. I hate to be basic, but yay for #notificationsquad! You and your content bring me a lot of joy ๐Ÿ˜Š thank you for another video!

  3. I misread the title as 'My Favorite Lemon Bullet Lemon Journal Trackers for Productivity' and was so confused xD

  4. I love those trackers so simple and easy to follow. I"ve just received the videos 5 hours late. I guess YouTube is forgetting me๐Ÿ˜•. But I'm happy because I saw the post on Instagram on time!! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

  5. Hello! I loved the horizontal monthly habit tracker on Instagram. I love it even more in the video ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ <3

  6. I really like you're fitness tracker, but I've found I like my habit trackers on my daylies. I don't like having to flip through to a lot of pages each day. Next year I was considering doing a disk bound bullet journal or one in a mini binder because I don't like the idea of having everything so jumbled up, I like the system you showed in your flip through video with your planning pages and note pages separated. I also don't like wasting space and pages! That's what's great about bullet journaling though, I can always change it up!

  7. I'm going to start my first bullet journal soon. I was in need of some tracker ideas! I love these! I'm self employed so I can see that first one being really helpful and keep me more accountable with how I spend my time. I've seen similar of the second, but I especially like your twist of color-coding and using a key to solve space issues. Also, I can totally see that fitness tracker layout working for so many other things that we would like to keep special, well, track of. ๐Ÿ™‚ These are super helpful! Thank you so much!

  8. Yay, a new bujo video! โค I've tried doing trackers but I always forget to fill them in, so they haven't really worked for me… ๐Ÿ˜… Guess I should just keep trying!

  9. Thank u so much for this video
    Really liked your ideas
    Not seen a fitness tracker like that before. Really good idea. Please do more videos like this ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  10. I was just struggling with what trackers I should add in my bujo since I just bought my Bujo journal last week and started doing the layout this week and you uploaded this! Ahh๐Ÿค—

  11. Your videos are always so functional … I'll try the first style to track my habits for the next month (won't forget to tag you on instagram) … I restarted doodling because of your channel … also I don't buy my books now – I make them on my own – thank you for all that you teach/share … My favourite tracker as of yet is in individual habits calendar so the habit page is littered with tiny little calendar-s

  12. hey, I saw that you like following some fitness vlog on youtube, you should check out "yoga with adriene" just 30 minutes video, BUT she will walk you through each pose and has a very entertaining attitude.

  13. Hi Jennifer, I love all your bujo videos. So please please please keep on doing bujo videos in the future. Please Jennifer, reply to my coment

  14. Hi Jennifer, I love all your bujo videos. So please please please keep on doing bujo videos in the future. Please Jennifer, reply to my coment

  15. But but… it's only the middle of April. Are you a Time Lord? Is that how you knew what you were doing on what days?

  16. I had a bullet journal last summer and I loved it but it was too high maintenance for me to do as Iโ€™m very busy all the time. I really want to get into it again but with less unnecessary bits and pieces

  17. What thickness of paper do you use? I have recently got into disc binding because of your videos. I thought you mentioned it in the video, but I couldn't find it. I was going to buy it from Amazon in order to print your dot paper.

  18. I really love this video because I'm planning to have a bullet journal (hence, i'mma have a bullet journal if school is so close) ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

  19. I just discovered your videos and I'm really wanting to try bookbinding. I've always loved books and reading and the thought of actually being able to create books myself fascinates me. I've been checking out supplies online, including your favorites list on Amazon and I have a question about the bone folders. Ethically I'm against purchasing a product made from animal bone and was wondering if the plastic ones work as effectively. And if so, what specifications would they need to have to consititute a well made one? Love your videos and looking forward to making my first book. Thanks for sharing your expertise. ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. I loved the video! Iโ€™m such a sucker for trackers, I donโ€™t know what it is but I just love to fill those little squares, it keeps me so motivated (so weird, maybe itโ€™s an official bullet journal addiction)! ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚ I always love to watch your bullet journal videos, keep them going! ๐Ÿ˜ x Marie

  21. I loved the first and the last one…well also the middle one but I already use it hehehe. I'm trying the first one now that I'm on exams and I need to be as focused as possible. Thanks Jennifer!! ๐Ÿ˜šโค๏ธ

  22. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE that you're using the habit tracker horizontally! It's the only layout that makes sense to me. I get to have everything all laid out and not have to deal with pesky discs and/or coils while trying to write. I've had to adapt/hack/create my own planner in a horizontal monthly spread but and then it allows me create a second page for more detailed items. I just wish I could find a planner that would incorporate this Loved seeing your creations. :)Thanks for sharing.

  23. I have been watching you since my early middle school days and I am close to graduating high-school now and the love is still there โค๏ธ!

  24. TY For putting your pens that u used in the description! โ™กโ™คโ™กโ™คโ™ก
    Helps ALOT!!!

  25. Ah God hers looks so nice but Iโ€™m not one for color so my bullet journal is black and white with very simple themes each month

  26. I really like your first idea but I don't have that many pages on my bujo :/. In fact, I do 8 days/page to save space as my bujo is a random notebook that has really little pages.

  27. could you do a DIY hobonichi cousin cover (A5)? maybe using fake leather w/ the pen loop? i really like your videos. thank you.

  28. I used a tracker similar to your daily one. If you want to try something new I can suggest to make the bar with the hours of the day 2 squares instead of just one. I filled in the first column with how I planned out my day beforehand (color coded by category like study, me-time,…). Then I used the second column next to it to track how I actually spent my day. It was nice to make my plans more accurate to what I can actually fulfill a day

  29. Loved how you made the layouts super simple for people like me just starting!! I get overwhelmed when I watch videos with beautiful calligraphy haha
    Thanks for the video!

  30. I have just found your video and I felt ashamed not seeing this first before I bought the daily planner. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

    Right now I am using both bullet journal and MUJI daily planner, I shall try the daily tracker and see if I can only use only one BUJO as in the past.

  31. years ago in college, I learned to write "U" for tuesday and "H" for thursday. It saved confusion when I was tired or really had lots going on for a few weeks. Now I am older and it is helpful to my older eyes as well ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. I love your videos so much.
    I have been bullet journaling and book binding for years, I started when I was 10. You could imagine I wasn't very good. ๐Ÿ˜
    I stopped for a while but I recently got back into it thanks your your videos. Now I'm waking up before the crack of dawn every day because I LOVE the different binding types.

    Now I am trying to create a scrapbook for my best friend who is moving away, and I can't figure out what binding method would be best when the book uses multiple different thicknesses of paper and the papers are so far apart. I watched your video on the instagram album, and I thought about the Japanese binding, but I don't want one side of the book to be thicker than the other. Because you have been proclaimed the book binding queen of YouTube(rightfully so), I was just wondering if you would have any advice on that.

  33. finally! someone who understands the planner how I want my life to look like. why are these blank journals not for sale somewhere?
