    17 Things Everyone Should Track In Their Twenties

    Time to organize your whole damn life.

    Tracking your habits can be satisfying as hell. When you track things — whether by using a bullet journal, app, Google Doc, or another method you devised — you can pick up on patterns you didn't notice before, identify things you'd like to be doing differently, and be more intentional about how you live your life and spend your time.

    Basically, it's just a way to pay attention to things in your life that you might otherwise be passive about. Obviously all of these aren't going to apply to you and your life, so take what you like and leave the rest.

    1. How often you see your friends.

    2. The last time you cleaned, washed, or replaced certain things, like your sheets, bath towels, bras, makeup brushes, toothbrush, etc.

    3. How much you spend on things like going out, takeout, alcohol, and other money black holes.

    4. How much you're drinking and how it makes you feel, emotionally and physically.

    5. Your period, if you have one, so you know when/if things are abnormal.

    6. Your responsibilities and tasks — in whatever to-do list works best for you.

    7. When you go to your medical appointments (and what you learned there).

    8. How much (or little) water you're drinking each day.

    9. How often you're late vs. on time to meetings, plans with friends, appointments, or dates.

    10. How much sleep you're actually getting.

    11. Your moods, especially so you can see if they align with certain habits.

    12. How often you cook vs. getting takeout.

    13. How much time you spend on various apps, because it might be more of a time suck than you realize.

    14. Your credit score, because you don't want to find out you have bad credit too late.

    15. How and when you have conflict in your life.

    16. Your progress toward your goals through regular check-ins with yourself.

    17. How often you do things that bring you joy.
