My habit tracking workflow

Inspired by Atomic Habit

After finished reading the book Atomic Habit wrote by James Clear, I tried to establish my habit tracking workflow in Obsidian.

The habits I want to keep

  • Book reading
  • Note making
  • Exercise

Obsidian Plugins I use for habit tracking

  • Daily Notes
  • Periodic Notes (for weekly notes)
  • DB folder
  • Dataview
  • Heatmap Calendar


  1. Daily notes: to record the daily score of each habit (score range: 1~5)

  2. Weekly Notes: to show the weekly score of each habit with dataview query

  3. DB folder: make it easy to input frontmatter values

  4. Heatmap Calendar: show the result of the year.


way to go!
