Lately I have been loving using a new kind of weekly tracker in my journal; the heptagon tracker.
The heptagon is a perfect shape for a weekly tracker as has 7 sides so is really easy to segment into the days of the week and give a really visual illustration of whether a habit has been achieved.
Below I will demonstrate how I create this tracker and two different ways that I use it.
What will I need:
- Notebook – mine is an A5 Scribbles that Matter* (iconic cover)
- Pen – My go to pen is the Staedtler Triplus Fineliner*
- Oops a Daisy Heptagon Stencil
What do I do?
Pick the heptagon size you want to use and draw the outline.
Using the co-ordinating size triangle, line up the base of the triangle with an outside edge of the heptagon. Now make a dot at the top of the triangle to mark the centre of the heptagon.
Now draw a line from each corner of the heptagon to the centre dot, This will create 7 sections.
Label each of the segments to represent the days of the week
You have now created a basic heptagon tracker. This I would use for tracking something like days adhering to the Slimming World plan. At the end of the week the days coloured in would be the days I have stuck to the plan.
In another tracker on this page I further segmented each segment as shown below:
This heptagon I used to track sleep. Each segment equates to 2 hours sleep and will be coloured as shown below:
I really love how these look on the page, giving a really visual representation of what you are tracking.
