Part of my personal fitness routine is tracking some aspects of my day-to-day life, mainly for feedback purposes. I can see when I don’t get enough sleep, for instance, and my mood and productivity suffer.
I track these categories in my Bullet Journal (ideally every morning and evening), as you can see here:
The scale is 1-10, with 10 being the “best” or “most”, except in the case of Sleep, which is measured in Hours.
As you can see the weeks are stacked upon one another so I can look for patterns in the results: am I more or less productive at the beginning of the week/month? the end?
Is there a pattern in the amount of sleep I get? How does that seem to affect Mood and Creativity?
I learned a few things from the Q4 chart, and confirmed that my Mood and Creativity bottom out in December. I’ve know about the SAD for years, but it’s another thing to see it in graphical form.
At the end of each month I’ll be able to add up all the daily scores to get an average and see how I’m doing.
