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:

What do I do?

Step 1:

Pick the heptagon size you want to use and draw the outline.

Step 2:

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.

Step 3.

Now draw a line from each corner of the heptagon to the centre dot, This will create 7 sections.

Step 4.

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.

I live in Essex in the UK with my gaggle of furry friends including Daisy the dog. I have had lifetime passion/obsession for beautiful stationery and to do lists which has lead me to the wonderful world of Bullet journals. When I first starting bullet journaling it struck me the lack of UK based resources for journal accessories which lead me to create my own. I know have my very own webshop selling my hand made journal stencils and ship all over the world and am just as enthusiastic as I ever was about stationery and organisation!!
