December Bullet Journal Ideas

We are in the last month of 2021 – how crazy is that? I love this time of year, not only because of Christmas where I spend time with family, but also because it is close to a new year. I love being able to reflect on the past year and look forward to what I want to achieve or focus on in 2022.

This year has been a difficult year health wise for me, but I have had some positive steps to help me try and adjust to a new ‘normal’. Throughout this year, I have had my loved ones support, which has been incredible. In 2022, I want to continue to move forward with my life.

Not only do I love the build up to Christmas, I love to design December bullet journal ideas. It means that I get to bust out Christmas stickers and Christmas washi tape and get creative.

Here are some page ideas for your December bullet journal:

December Mood Tracker

A mood tracker for some people is important and for health reasons I am one of those people. There are a variety of ways in which you can record your mood each day depending on what your monthly spreads look like. Charting your mood is helpful to connect your feelings to what has happened that day. As you are monitoring your mood, you will be able to have a better understanding of your feelings and how you can best manage them. If you want a simple way to record your mood, you can write down how you are feeling; however, if you like a more creative design, you can use a colour-coded system.

December Habit Tracker

Habit trackers are a really useful tool to start tracking your regular activities in your daily routine. If you want to start a new habit, using a tracker acts as a reminder and can hold you accountable to achieve these habits consistently. Depending on how you wish to set up each month in your bullet journal, there are a variety of ways that you can display and record a habit tracker. Having a to-do list or a habit tracker with tasks to check off can motivate you to achieve even more. Using habit trackers also allows you to reflect on your progress for certain habits especially if it is something vital, like taking medication. When you use a to-do list or a habit tracker can make you feel more organised and productive with your schedule.

December Blog Statistics Tracker

If you are a blogger and want to grow your brand, keeping a record of your blogging statistics is vital in learning about your progress; you can see what is going right and where you need to focus to improve. Having a record of your monthly stats can act as a motivator to grow your blog and increase your views. Then when you see your stats increasing it can motivate you even further. You could also have bullet journal spreads where you can record your most popular blog posts; this can highlight to you what content your audience prefers to see.

I have been keeping a record of my blog statistics for around 3 years and I can see how far my blog has grown. If you are a blogger and are thinking of reaching out to brands or have been pitching having updated blog statistic can be beneficial to keep your media kit up-to-date.

December Sleep Tracker

A sleep tracker is where you record the amount of hours of sleep you get each night. When you start recording your sleep patterns it will highlight any sleeping patterns or habits you may have that could be negatively impacting your physical and mental health.

As my chronic illness can affect the amount and the quality of my sleep, using a sleep tracker will help me identify patterns and could highlight links between my sleep and my daily life. You can have a basic set up for recording the hours. However, if you have a Fitbit or another device that records more sleep information you can also include that in the spread if you want to be more in-depth.

December Monthly Overview

A monthly overview is a spread of the whole month as a whole. You could have it in a list form a table form. This type of bullet journal spread can be helpful when you are trying to plan ahead. This space gives you the opportunity to record your most important dates, reminders and appointments to view at first glance. I started using this spread last month and it works really well for me because of medical appointments with my brain fog, my memory isn’t always great and this acts as a great reminder.

December Content Planner

To be successful with a blog or growing your social media platforms you have to be super organised with sharing new content with your followers and engaging with them. I have found that the best way to be organised with my blog is to have an effective blogging schedule; this helps me to plan ahead of time. This makes it easy for me to plan pitches to brands.

I am working on re-building my Instagram account, so this bullet journal page idea will help me to plan my Instagram content, post consistently and grow my follower count. Are we Instagram friends? You could use this similar idea if you share content on YouTube, TikTok or other social media platforms.

December Playlist Of The Month

This page idea I started last month and I thought it was fun to complete and so I thought I would do it again this month. I will share my favourite songs or new songs that I have been listening to on repeat. When I look back on my journal, I will be able to reflect on what I was listening to in December 2021. It might even remind of good songs that I listened to and had forgotten about. You could use this page idea for other areas of your life. Here are some other ideas:

  • Your favourite books you have read that month
  • Your favourite recipes you have tried that month
  • Your favourite TV shows of the month
  • Your favourite movies of the month

December Weekly Spreads

I like to use weekly spreads to include all my daily tasks, appointments and reminders. Checking off tasks from your list can be so motivating and you always end up completing more. I like using the simple bullet journal system when checking off the tasks. There are a variety of different weekly layouts you can start utilising to improve your productivity levels. There are minimalistic or more creative and elaborate designs, both will promote productivity and organisation.

These are just some bullet journal spreads for your December bullet journal. There are so many other ideas that you can use your bullet journal for. Here are 15 other page ideas:

  1. Monthly savings
  2. A cleaning schedule
  3. A wish list

  1. I think you the colour from happy and stressed are far too similar in your mood tracker. You might want to pick another colour is is markedly different so you can tell from just a glance. Because the two colours look almost exactly the same to me

  2. I recently bought myself a wee bullet journal to start next year. Largely inspired by your bullet journal pages. I’m a perfectionist, so I’m thinking of making a digital version that I can easily chop and change. I love the pages you’ve created here!

    1. That is awesome! Welcome to the club! I used to be like that, but now every month is a new chance to be creative and see how it turns out.

  5. I love the theme you chose for December this year! Mine is birds and it’s a lot harder than I imagined to draw them aha. I like the idea of your content planner & playlist. I like to do a monthly favourites on the last page of each month which is definitely a lot of fun x

  6. This looks so amazing. I will be started a bullet journal next month. It great to get some ideas ready for starting it. Thank you for the ideas.

  10. I love this December bullet journal idea, and the mood tracker is great although I feel like my mood changes hourly so I would definitely need a more in depth one haha! Thank you for sharing xx

  11. I am absolutely loving how your bujo turned out for December. Seriously cute and creative. The Christmas trees are such a perfect way to decorate – and I love your sticker choices too!

  12. Love how your December spreads are looking! I was totally into bullet journaling a couple of years ago but then abandoned it for lack of will. They never looked like I wanted, so I left them! I really love the washi tapes and stickers you used, maybe I will give it a chance again x

  13. Of all the ones you have done so far, Lauren, the December spreads are my absolute favourites! You make me want to go back to my BuJo so bad!

  14. You’ve created some lovely pages for this month. I’ve added a gift tracker to mine so I know exactly what is happening and whether I still need to buy or wrap something.

  15. I always love seeing your monthly spreads and love your page ideas! Journalling is so personal that the spreads a person uses on a consistent basis vary depending on what they like to keep track of and be aware of. A vision board or spending tracker sound fun, but I love the idea of a self-care tracker too.
    Thanks for sharing!

  16. I found the idea of the mood tracker using specific colours fantastic. I do not keep bullet journaling but it makes sense how much more organized you can become. Beeing able to identify patterns can definitely help in understanding better yourself and your progress and identify stenghts and weaknesses.

  17. What an awesome idea! I love the branding of your journal pages and the way they flow. Thanks for sharing

  18. Your December spread looks so cute, makes me want to create one. I would definitely start a blog and money habit tracker to keep me in check

  19. Oh, I love how you have done your bullet journal for December. I like the offset of the colours with the trees and of course the lovely stickers! I say this every time, but I need to get on track with a bullet journal…I haven’t touched mine in months!
    Thanks for sharing 🙂
