Today I’d like to share a free little DIY Sleep Tracker project I have personally found very helpful over the past couple of years.
When I started using an analog planning system a couple of years ago, my sleep patterns were one of the first things I started tracking.
Sleep eludes me at times. Am I the only one? I wanted more information on what effected my sleep and in turn, what my lack of sleep effected. Im not sure where I originally found inspiration for this layout, but you’ll find a plethora of sleep tracker layouts on social media.
Free DIY Planner Sleep Tracker
This is a simple DIY project…you can find the actual tracker in my Free Printable Library.
Here’s what you will need:
- Free Sleep Tracker printable (available in Happy Planner Classic, Personal, and A5/Bullet Journal sizes) (download here)
- Plain or sticker paper
- Tombow Dual Brush Pen Art Markers in Bright
- Paper trimmer/cutting device
- Hole punch or adhesive (Using the Arc Punch for demo)
- Washi tape, stickers, etc. (optional)
Let’s get started!
1. Download the Sleep Tracker PDF here.
2. Print out the size you need for your planner (all three sizes are included in one PDF and clearly marked).
3. Using a paper trimmer or Exacto knife and ruler, trim at the cropmarks.
4. Use washi tape to reinforce the hole punch line. Here I’m layering two different widths of washi to give extra support.
5. Hole punch for your particular planner (or adhere into your bound journal with adhesive or sticker paper). Here I’m making the tracker to fit the Happy Planner – Classic and using the Arc Punch.
6. Embellish your tracker. I’m using Tombow Dual Brush Pen Art Markers in Bright here (colors 133, 055, N75, 493 and the Colorless Brush Pen). Color in the cloud add stars…use your imagination!
Here I’m using the Colorless Blender (N00) to soften the edges
7. Insert into your planner.
8. As you track your hours of sleep each night, get creative with your shading. Use diagonals, circles, stars, etc.
Try to track each night the following morning to gain an accurate insight into your sleep.
Here’s to better nights of sleep! Enjoy…if you liked this project, please comment and feel free to share!
