We are now going into April; this year is flying past and a new month means: new goals, new tasks and a fresh, new bullet journal theme. Not only is it a new bullet journal spread, but I am into a brand new bullet journal.
There is something so exciting about starting a new journal and fresh pages. I am now using a Yop & Tom baby blue cloud journal. After using my Archer & Olive journal, I want to make the positive change to vegan and/or eco-friendly notebooks.
Sometimes, the hardest part of creating your monthly bullet journal is picking a theme and page design. Once you have figured these things out, the rest of your monthly spread becomes easy.
Here are 20+ themes, designs and spread ideas that you can use for your bullet journal:
This is a spread that I introduced last month and I loved using it! The idea for this page is to write one line about what you did that day. It is a small reflection activity that you can do in your journal and it is a great spread to look back at in several months’ time. If you struggle with a chronic illness and your memory is sometimes affected, this spread can be invaluable.
Gratitude is about being thankful for what you have in your life. Practising gratitude can help with a variety of things including self-love, confidence and more. Using a similar layout to the one line page spread, this spread is a positive mental health habit that you should start. Practising gratitude is a powerful way to look after your mental health and build your self-esteem.
Blog Stats Tracker
If you are a blogger, this spread can be really helpful in tracking progress of your blog posts and engagement. If you own a small business, a tracker for sales, products and supplies can be a really beneficial way to stay organised.
Habit trackers are a great way tool to hold you accountable for the variety of tasks you want to ensure become habitual. You can use a number of different layouts that best suit your preferences and your theme. I love the use of habit trackers that act as motivation to get everything checked off the list each day. However, remembering that I need to follow steps to be productive, but also be aware of my limits.
Different theme ideas for your April Bullet Journal:
- Floral theme

Mood trackers work well highlight patterns in your mental health and your physical health. If you suffer with your mental health, mood trackers can help you relay any information to a doctor if needed.
I didn’t use a mood tracker last month and I missed using it, so I decided to start tracking my mood and I feel it would beneficial for my chronic illnessto track my mood and my worst pain days.
I haven’t used this spread for a long time, but I feel like it is needed as I am trying to grow my Instagram account. I was posting daily, but I have not been consistently posting and I want to be more organised and have content ahead of time. When I have used this spread previously, it really helped me to stay on top of the account. If you struggle with posting consistently on a social media platform, a plan like this would be really helpful.
Another spread that I haven’t designed in my bullet journal for a long time; however, I need to track my sleep patterns with my mood and habit trackers to highlight any patterns in order to try and improve my sleeping habits.
