Habit Tracker Google Sheets Template for 2021

Health routines went for a toss during the pandemic?

Mine too. A balanced life got replaced by excessive hours with a laptop while sitting on a chair, with a laptop in bed watching Netflix, and eating more food.

Since Q4 of 2020, my friend Sankalp and I have been take back greater control of our lives. We focused on things within our control, to rebuild good habits within the new constraints of life.

We tried several habit tracker apps, but always found them to be too complex or focused on too many features.

Let simplicity help you take back control

Complex tracking systems aren't useful in the long run. The real aim of any system should be to become ingrained into the subconscious, you don't need to consciously think or mark a box somewhere to do the activity.

That's why we created a simple and free habit tracker spreadsheet template built using Google Sheets. Make a copy to get started.

DailyHabits - A Simple Habit Tracker

After using a Google Sheet for nearly 6 months, Sankalp and I decided to build a simple habit tracker app that helps us do more, by doing less.

Introducing DailyHabits, a habit tracker designed for simplicity.

  • Visualize your entire month at a glance.
  • Set flexible goals instead of streaks.
  • Make notes to reflect on your journey.
  • Fully responsive and works on mobile & desktop.
