Nine Tips for Getting Started with Life Tracking

Inspired by Sebastian’s posts about the benefits of life tracking, I decided to try it for myself. After several false starts, I’ve now been doing it for almost two months straight and have had some great results.

I figured if she needs a routine, maybe I do, too.

I've slept well recently after doing a couple things:
