Sleep Tracker Bullet JournalPin

A sleep tracker, bullet journal style or traditional planner, keeps track of when you went to bed and when you got up. This enables you to visualize and track your sleep behaviors over time so you can make changes if necessary.

Getting enough sleep is necessary to lead a healthy lifestyle and to maintain your physical and emotional health. Research suggests, however, that adults need at least 7–8 hours of sleep each night to be well rested.

We have many more bullet journal tracker ideas on this site.

Why use a bullet journal sleep log?

Although there are guidelines for how much sleep we need it really depends on the person. That is why tracking your sleep is helpful. If you track how much you sleep each night and how rested you feel in the morning, you will have a better idea how many hours of sleep you need per night.

A sleep tracker bujo also often keeps track of the time you go to sleep and the time you wake up. After using a sleep tracker, I realized that when I go to sleep after 11 I never get enough sleep even if I can sleep in the next morning. I’m not sure why but as a result I always make sure that I go to sleep before 11 if possible.

When you track your sleep you will be more likely to go to sleep earlier since you know that you are going to track it and going to sleep late won’t go unnoticed.
