July Bullet Journal Spread

How are we already in July? This year is flying by already and so many plans and goals have been rescheduled or changed. Although the past few months we have all been in lockdown I have tried to keep a schedule and routine as much as I can, so I have continued to use my monthly bullet journal spreads.

If you are thinking about using a bullet journal I have shared things you should know before you start your journal. If you are wanting to start with a simple design this spread or my June spread is an easy place to start. If you are looking for a more arty design to follow you can check out my May spread.

Last month I created a simple spread as I was asked by some of my readers for a spread that they could easily follow. It worked out really well as I was really busy and needed something quick and functional. I really enjoyed using a simpler spread it stopped me from procrastinating with filling in the designs.

I decided this month to include my habit and mood tracker on the same page in a different layout. In previous months I have put each tracker on a separate page, with some designs it works well but with the lockdown and plans are not as busy I want to save pages in my bullet journal. I love having all my habits on one page, it also reminds me to fill them all in at one time.

Habit trackers motivate and hold me accountable for those tasks. I complete habit trackers as part of my morning and evening routines. I have included mood and weather together and will join the dots each day with two different colours. I have shared all about habit trackers and the different layouts you can use.

I used the same layout for this page as my June spread because it is simple and I can quickly record the numbers. I like the list for each day because then I can compare my views and see where I can improve. Of course statistics are not always important because for me I like to track potential progress. I started last month including overall monthly check in, I can compare month by month which will be helpful if brands ask for my statistics.

I have recently started using these gratitude pages. I fill the previous day in as part of my morning routine. Including this practise in my morning routine means I start off my day on a positive note. I love how this looks, reflecting gratitude with the idea of a sun with the rays where I write what I am grateful for. I used flashes of yellow throughout some of the pages to add some colour. I definitely recommend starting a gratitude journal, showing gratitude can make your life a lot richer.

This is a different layout that I have done previously but I really like it. I am able to see days in advance all on one page. I definitely think this spread will help me when I am planning my week. I will be able to use this spread for all my to-do lists. Again using a spread like this will save pages, it also is really simple and easy to design. I highlighted the days of the week with the yellow to just add some colour.

Since having to start a new Instagram account I have been focusing on growing my account and posting consistently. I have been using an Instagram plan for the past few months and it has helped me plan my content in advance to ensure I always have content to post. I have really been enjoying sharing on Instagram, are we Instagram friends? 

Have you started a bullet journal? If not, how do you plan your month?

  1. I love this months set up Lauren. It looks so fresh. I am going to work on mine during the summer holiday and really dedicate some time to it. I thought in lockdown I’d be on it every day but working at home just takes over everything.

    Thank you for sharing, I love your Bullet Journal posts x

  2. I love seeing what people do with their bullet journals. I’ve never quite managed to get mine to go the way I want it but looking at other people’s always inspires me. I love your week plan – simple yet effective and I love you can see all the days at once to plan it out.

  3. I love that you connected with trying a simpler spread. I am often surprised at how much I like a new thing when I give it a go, and your gratitude page with the meeting suns was my favorite from this spread beside the happy yellow colors you used for July!

  4. I love your gratitude spread! A few years ago I was really into bullet journaling and wish I would have kept it up, it’s such a fun hobby! And the organization makes me super duper happy

  5. I’ve been staring at your pictures of your journal for a while – it’s so pretty! I really wish I could bullet journal! I have a diary but never tend to write in it. I usually wing it throughout the month and hope I remember the list in my head. xxx

  6. I am in awe. Work stuff I write on a whiteboard. For personal stuff, I scribble notes everywhere on things I have to do. I keep a gratitude journal and also a journal to write down notes and ideas for my blog posts. My system sounds disorganized but it works. LOL Yours is very pretty and well organized. I really love the gratitude layout. 😀

  7. I love how simple this looks! I might do something similar to this for August. My layout this month was pretty simple, with the exception of my monthly cover spread. I really haven’t felt overly inspired to create extravagant spreads. I just need it to be functional, so these look pretty great! Great post xxx

  8. I love seeing your BuJo layouts, Lauren. And I like the new clean designs as well. I think the reason I don’t use my bullet journal very much is because I get daunted by seeing all the colourful designs that other bloggers use. Your July layout is much more inspiring to me! Thank you for sharing 🙂 Lisa

  9. I commented yesterday, but my comments have been going to spam, I think I’ve sorted it out now….otherwise this one will just go there as well 😂😂

    I enjoyed tracking my blog stats and doing the gratitude journal last month, so we are going again for July 😄

  11. Time is flying…and I don’t like it! No, I haven’t created a bullet journal, but seeing how you have started one and it has been motivating you makes me want to have my one too, so maybe I’ll get one!

  12. This is really awesome! I like the daily blog stats tracker. That’s a great idea! Maybe I will give something like that a try. I do keep a gratitude journal, and like you I like to do it in the AM as I drink my coffee. Yours is much nicer to look at though! 😁 Thank you for the ideas!

  14. Wow, your pages are so pretty. I bought a bullet journal last month, so it’s good to see how others are using theirs for inspiration. It’s a great idea to use it to track habits and also for social media content. I’m not as artistic as you, but you’ve given me some great ideas. Thank you x

  15. I love your layout. It’s simple yet really grabs the eyes. I’m still trying to get back into using a bullet journal regularly. I have made some layouts for some months and then completely forgot to use them.

  16. I love your journaling on this information. I haven’t been consistent in doing it and I think I’m missing out on some valuable information and trends
