Bullet journals (or BuJo) are a simple way of organising your day. Having a bullet journal boosts creativity which in turn reduces stress, helps you connect to yourself, engages and unblocks the mind. It allows for non-linear thinking, nurses ideas, helps to change your mindset and your habits. The goal is to help you create your own routine and keep track of what you do and to encourage you to become better at the things you do.
Our dot grid notebooks have blank pages with evenly spaced dots allowing for your beautiful designs. The dot grid layout provides structure, but is less restrictive that lined paper so you can unleash your creativity. Every page can be designed to fit your needs - log daily to-dos, keep a weekly or monthly calendar, write down notes, track mental and physiological health, long- and short-term goals. Our notebooks come with a Legend page, where you can write down the symbols you use, Contents pages, which can help you find your notes faster, and Pen Test pages, where you can experiment without ruining your notes.
To start using a bullet journal, you'll need a notebook and a pen or pencil. Begin by creating an index, followed by a future log that outlines your plans for the upcoming months. Then, set up a monthly spread where you can write down important events and deadlines, and a daily log where you can record your daily tasks and notes. From there, you can add various collections such as habit trackers, goal pages, meal plans, and other relevant topics. The beauty of a bullet journal is that you can design it to match your personal style, incorporating colours, doodles, and other creative elements to make it both functional and visually appealing.
Here are a few ideas of what you can do with your journal:
- Organise your daily to do’s and long-term goals and plans. This will relieve the stress of having to remember everything, while also helping you break down overwhelming tasks into smaller manageable chunks.
- Create spreads for things that you are interested in: mood tracker, reading log, fitness log, finance log, etc. Keeping track of various activities is important if you want to improve yourself and to see the progress you make.
- Focus on your mental health - allow yourself to spend 15 minutes a day to think about your day and write down what you are grateful for. By focusing on the positive moments of your day, you free your mind and you become a more positive and stress-free person.
- Include anything and everything else helpful to YOU in order to stay organised, manage your time better and become more mindful of yourself.
With a bit of creativity and dedication, journaling can become an enjoyable and fulfilling part of your daily routine. Have a look at our blog posts and social media to get inspired!
