Top Ideas To Track Sleep and Productivity In Your Bullet Journal
Hello Friends! I’m Dano from @danosbujo on Instagram and Youtube! And I’m super excited to share some sleep and productivity tracker ideas for you! I wanted to share my all time favorite bullet journal trackers that I used to keep myself sane and on track with what I do daily, so I came up with some useful and life saving trackers that I used/use on a daily basis!
This blog post is also meant to help you find and inspire you to create a fun yet very needed Sleep & Work tracker Spread!
Don’t worry if you think you’re not artistic or creative, these trackers don’t require you to be creative or artistic, they are meant to help you and be useful! And I focused this blog post in that direction!
So grab your supplies, your favorite beverage (or food if you are just reading and taking mental notes, I got you ;) ), and let’s start this Sleep and Productivity/work Tracker Ideas!
Here’s the materials I used:
- A notebook obviously XD, I used this A5 Neapolitan Notebook
- Some Calliographs (I only used the Jewel Selection ones)
- The Fall Planner Acrylic Stamps
- Black waterproof fineliners (I used the Sakura Micron in 01)

Sleep & Work Tracker
Starting with my all-time favorite tracker, it’s my Sleep & Work Tracker. I use this tracker in all my monthly spreads and It’s where I overview my day in terms of rest and productivity. You can mix if you want to track in the horizontal or in vertical according to where you put the days and the hours of the day.
Personally, I find it interesting to do the hours of the day on the top of the tracker and the days on the left side of the tracker in vertical, that’s what I did for the one in this video. After making the table you can select a color code for your sleep, work, studying, etc.
In my case I used sky blue for sleep, a blue bell for editing a video, Olive for Study, Moss Green for Classes or Lectures, Mustard for Recording a video and Peach for Bullet Journaling.
You can write the task you’re doing or just leave it blank and have a key somewhere, but I recommend adding the names of the task so you keep everything organized.
For materials I used the Black Fineliner to make the Tables and I painted using the Jewel Selection.
“Weekly Spread” - Google Calendar Inspired
Another way to track your sleep and productivity is by using a google calendar type of weekly spread. I use a whole notebook just for these Weekly spreads and the layout is exactly like this one.
For this spread I used the Fall Planner Acrylic Stamps for the days of the week, and I added 4 topics for the meals of the day, like breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner. For the spread itself I separated the days in 8 boxes each and divided them in the middle of each column where half of the day is on one side and the other half on the other side of this column.
I added the hours just for a reference and if you recreate this spread, I recommend also adding somewhere the hours of the day or any type of guiding. The way I use this Tracker/ Weekly spread is the same way I use the sleep and work tracker, but in this one I can add more information since there’s more space to write.
For example, If I edited a video, I can write which things I did on the video, like cropping the clips or maybe specify what video I’m editing. Or for the study task I can say what Subjects I studied or maybe the topics.
For the weekend I used the hour tracking stamp from the same stamp pack because there’s no space left for the weekend, so I divided the last column for both Saturday and Sunday and used the stamp to track each day, and the method is exactly the same.
The materials I used to make this spread were the Jewel Selection to track the tasks, the Fall Planner Acrylic Stamps for the days of the week + to track the hours in the weekend, and a Black Fineliner. ( I also used a stencil to make circles, but it’s not a must).

Study and Sleep Tracker
For the last two tracking ideas I separated the Sleep Tracker and the Study Tracker, you can change the name of the Study Tracker to something you relate to, for example Work Tracker instead of studying, I used Study Tracker because I used this spread as a student and it feels more personal to me.
For both trackers I wrote the days of the month on the left side of the table, on top of the table I wrote for the study Tracker 10 hours so I can track the amount of hours I’ve studied each day. For the sleep tracker I wrote the usual hours that I sleep instead of the amount of hours like I did for the Study Tracker (in my case from 20/8pm to 11am), but it’s completely up to you the way you want to track each one of these trackers.
For the materials I used the fineliner and some of the colors from the Jewel Selection.

In case you want to try my Sleep & Work Tracker here’s a printable of my most used tracker on my bullet journal!! (It only has 30 days Vertically and you’ll need to write the numbers on whatever side you like, in case you want to use it for a 31 day month, make sure to add it on this printable! You can use it for your bullet journal as a reference or to use it as it is! Have fun and I hope it’s helpful for you!)
I hope you enjoyed these Ideas to add to your Bullet Journal!
