Believe it or not, I've seen an awful lot of printables.
From the more traditional meal planners and monthly calendars to entire packs dedicated to helping home buyers narrow down their choices, you'd think I'd seen them all!
But we've got a printable coming at you today that is one of the versatile and useful printables I've seen in a good long while, and I'm so excited to share it with you! This actually started as a request from one of our Sweet Life Society members.
This printable is a fillable symptom tracker that can be used to track everything from chronic pain to your cycle to mental health. I love the way this printable allows you to get a lot of information about your day at a quick glance. Real quickly, I'd like to walk you through how you can use each section.
SECTION 1: TRACKING TRENDS
The first part of this printable is laid out as a simple graph. This is a great place to track the number one “problem” or “symptom” that you are trying to get information about. That could be pain level emotional health or mental health just to name a few. You'll be able to quickly compare how you've been doing over the last two weeks. I've left spaces for you to fill in what each ranking means to you instead of the sometimes arbitrary 1 to 5 scale.
SECTION 2: TRACKING SYMPTOMS AND HABITS
The second section is a place for you to check off symptoms, habits, or potential triggers. If you are trying to find a cause for your pain or see if your exercise is related to your mental health, this section is for you! It allows you to check off each day what did and did not happen during the day.
SECTION 3: TRACKING QUANTITY OR INTENSITY
This third section was originally intended as a water tracker. As you can see, there are 8 little boxes you can fill in (for 8 cups of water, of course!) But it could also be used for tracking something such as headache intensity or miles run on the treadmill.
SECTION 4: FIND SOMETHING POSITIVE
This last section is my favorite! We left the heading blank on purpose, so you can make whatever you'd like to out of it. But I like to put “every day I will” at the top, and then choose one or two actions I will complete every day. It is empowering to tell yourself you are going to do something and then to do it. Don't make these too difficult or grandiose, just find some small thing you want to add into your day to day routine and set your mind to getting it done.

I hope you love this printable as much as I do, and especially if you are using it to track a health concern, I wish you all the best, much healing, and much grace with yourself as you search for answers!
