It is that time of the month again; it’s bullet journal set up time!
This month might be the last spread I share, I am wanting to possibly change up how I plan and organise my time. I went down the rabbit hole of planner videos on YouTube, my favourite is Cindy GB’s channel and I want to maybe move solely to a pre-printed planner. I would love to have certain planners but unfortunately because they are in the US I cannot really justify the shipping. I wish the UK has better options.
I like this time of the month when all the bullet journal ideas flood social media platforms and planner addicts get to plan their next month. I mean any excuse to bust out the stickers, washi tape and coloured pens!
Here are my May Bullet Journal Ideas:
I wanted to make May a simple design because I wanted to focus on being productive with my time as I am working on a course. I want to focus my attention on that rather than a busy design in my bullet journal. I have kept the habits in my journal the same each month.
I love looking for the positives even on a bad day and this spread allows mw to focus on this. For anyone who doesn’t know, the idea is to write one highlight from each day.
Practising gratitude is a powerful task that can benefit your physical and mental health. Using this gratitude tracker helps me to reflect on each day and be thankful for what I have. Writing one thing each day helps me keep a diary of my movements.
4. One Line
As I currently do not daily journal, using this page idea allows me to short hand write about my day. So, I just write ‘one line’ about what I did that day. This is a great page to be able to look back on and reminisce.
5. Blog Statistics
This is always a tracker I use in my bullet journal because I like to track my blog’s progress. It highlights any areas where I need to work harder.
6. Master Task List
This spread lists all the tasks I wish to complete during the month. I separate the tasks into sections: my home, my blog, my course and personal. Then, each day I can refer to the list for daily tasks to complete.
I haven’t used this idea for a while, but as I have a busy month with medical appointments and my course, I thought this would help me to be more organised with my time.
