About forty percent of daily life is shaped by habit, so when we follow good habits, it’s much easier to be happier, healthier, productive, and creative. This habit tracker prompts you to record specific progress and choose from Gretchen Rubin’s “21 Strategies for Habit Change” to help you build your habits and achieve your aims. The pages provide structure and flexibility, with space to visualize progress in different ways, use “pass” stickers if you need to take a day off, award yourself gold-star stickers to celebrate your milestones, get reminders from Gretchen Rubin’s Habits Manifesto, and suggestions for ways to use this tracker effectively. “Don’t break the chain” is a powerful strategy for building daily habits, and this tracker makes it easier to maintain.

I found the Don't Break the Chain Habit Tracker to be highly aligned with all the content I've read/heard from Rubin, as well as other resources about habit development. At first, I was disappointed that there was room to track so few habits but then I realized that even limiting the number of habits on which to focus was based in good evidence and theory! I tend to attempt too many new behaviors at once so this limitation turned out to be a good thing. I also appreciate the Notes and Reflections and If Useful pages for each habit. As a Questioner, with Rebel lean, it is critical for me to reinforce my decisions to focus on developing a new habits by noting and reminding myself why I am prioritizing focus on a habit and the outcomes I expect from developing the habit. Thank you!
This journal brings order in different ways. It has a clear layout, very clean and beautiful. I like the list and notes page where I can reflect on my performance and list anything I did. The strategies page is also helpful. I‘m a rebel and indeed I break the chain but it helps me to think about my resolutions more thoroughly and it clarifies the ‘why‘ (I tip towards questioner).
I just moved and looking to set up new habits... and prioritize the good habits that will give me the most balance and stability in my new home. I actually already feel so much healthier because it gives me an organized way to reflect on the why and how of new habits. It has given this ADHD brain a little boost to retain habits- something that doesn't really come naturally to me. I am an obliger but with this notebook I feel more motivated by internal expectations along with the external expectations that naturally give me motivation.
I would love for this planner to lay flat so I could write in it more easily. It's otherwise pretty, and I do love the size (portable!). I like the idea of not breaking the chain to keep myself accountable.
