April Bullet Journal Set Up

Start of Spring and we are all having to spend most of our time indoors. I hope you are all keeping safe and healthy. This bullet journal set up is going to be a bit different.

Apart from going to work, I will be at home and so certain pages I usually have in my monthly set ups I have decided to not include for the month of April. I will not be including a mood tracker, because for the most part I think I will probably be feeling anxious and I do not think that is an effective use of space. I also have left out a sleep log because I don’t know about you, but my sleeping pattern is all over the place at the moment.

I have decided to have a basic set up that is going to be the most productive and effective for April.

Front Cover

I decided to have a floral style theme, just to bring a bit of colour for April as we are now in Spring. I have used a basic layout for this months set up as I am isolating. I used my Crayola Supertips to add colour and my washi tapes from Wilko. I love the different shades of green.


Habit Tracker

I kept my habit tracker very basic because for the most part I am going to be indoors and a lot of previous habits will not apply. I kept the habits that are going to be the most relevant for the month. I added a similar doodle to the front cover, so both pages would flow together.


Blog Stats

I wanted to include this because this month is National Stationery Week. I want to be able to reflect my views compared to last years Stationery Week. Β If you want to read any of my posts from last years Stationery Week, enjoy! Make sure you check out my blog for this years stationery filled content as I have a giveaway happening too. Make sure you are following my Twitter and Instagram to stay updated.


Instagram Plan

I wanted to continue to use this because again this month is busy for Stationery Week content. Since I started my new account after being hacked, I have been posting consistently everyday and my engagement is so much better than before. Using this plan has helped me plan out my content and being consistent so much easier. I am loving my feed and really enjoying using the platform. You can follow my new Instagram account.


April Task List

I found this page really useful in my bullet journal, being able to write down all the tasks I want to achieve that month. I then refer to this page when I filling in my planner for tasks for the week. I have filled in some tasks so far. Plus there is always something so satisfying about checking something completed off a list.


What is your theme for your bullet journal for April? Have you gone with a basic set up or an elaborate one this month? I’d love to hear in the comments.

  2. Your pages are so pretty, Lauren! The green and floral theme is so calming and nice to look at. As always, your bullet journal is so beautifully neat and organised. Making a list of all the blogging tasks for the month ahead is such a good way to stay on track and focused. I’m really looking forward to your National Stationery Week content and so excited for the giveaway too! ❀ xxx

  3. You couldn’t have chosen a better theme for April as far as I’m concerned, Lauren! I love all those flowers and also how you’ve adapted your checkers for where we are right now. It looks like April is going to be a busy month for you, I’m looking forward to your giveaway too πŸ™‚ xxx

  4. It was so smart to make changes as necessary with the current shift in our lives and our schedules. I agree that focusing on your emotions, for example, isn’t going to be beneficial at this time. I know I’m right there with you when it comes to the anxiety, and we’re definitely not alone!

  5. I love your new Instagram feed! It is too bad you got hacked, but it is wonderful you drew something positive from it.
    The green laurels on your pages this month are so pretty, but the splashes of color the flowers lend are my favorite. Also, I feel special for getting a peek at your tasks list! Hints for what is to come .. .
    Stay safe and healthy!


  6. I really love the green theme for this month, it’s so pretty! I’ve gone with an ‘April showers’ type theme for mine this month so there’s lots of blue and I’ve decorated the pages with colourful umbrellas. I’ve done the same as you though and gone for a fairly basic layout in terms of mood trackers and stuff too, I think we can’t really pin too much on April at the moment! πŸ˜‚ x

  7. Such a beautiful cover for April! I don’t have much artistic talent. Starting a bullet journal could help me not stress out about my tasks (they’d be laid out in front of me) but I can never keep up the habit. I do keep a journal, though…

    1. Thank you! I don’t either, I just have to keep practising, I have definitely improved from when I started billet journaling in 2017. You could use the bullet journal for tasks. That is a great use for them.
