It’s that time again where I design and share my bullet journal set up with you for the brand new month ahead. There were certain aspects of my January set up I wanted to recreate for the month of February.
A bullet journal can be so versatile and you can record different information. The bullet journal process is where I was first introduced to habit trackers.
Habit trackers are exactly what they say, they are a way of tracking your habits. The simple way to measure whether you completed a habit. There are plenty of theories you can find online about how many days it takes to form or break a habit. There is a 21/90 rule, this is where you commit to a habit for 21 days straight. It has said after the three weeks it should have become a habit. You then continue the habit for a further 90 days.
Bullet journalling has opened me up to a huge world of trackers, weekly spreads and fun creative page ideas. I was surprised at the size of the bullet journalling community when I first started journalling in 2017 and its even bigger now. There is even Youtubers who are sharing content all about bullet journalling.
I like to plan, I always have been a planner. I like to know what is happening in the week ahead and the feeling of being organised and prepared. I don’t know what it is about the start of the new year, but it always makes me want to go a little bit planner crazy ha ha!
The start of a new month and a new year, means a fresh start in my diary and my bullet journal. I get all excited when I get out all my stationery to plan my week, all you stationery lovers will know this feeling well ha ha!
It is a brand new year 2020, who else is excited for a brand new year? I always feel extra organised and ready to get planning in January. I decided this year to use my bullet journal a little differently, I want to use it more like a journal. Something I can look back and reflect on. I currently have a mid year BusyB planner where I include my appointments and my to do lists. So I will use these both together this year.
I have really loved getting back into bullet journalling this year, experimenting with simplistic layouts as well as more doodle based spreads. Both set up designs have pros and cons to using them throughout bullet journals. As we are in December and I am reflecting on all things in 2019. I have compiled a list of 5 pages that were my favourite to design in my bullet journal this year.
I can’t believe it is already December and is going to be Christmas soon. I am so excited! I can’t believe that 2019 is in it’s last month, where has the time gone? For me, this year has definitely been one of the fastest years that I can remember. I really enjoyed getting creative with this months set up and excited to see what you think.
I am back with another bullet journal set up blog post, for all you planner and stationery babes! I have to keep reminding myself that it is going to be November, its nearly the end of 2019 and Christmas, which I am super excited for! Where has 2019 gone? This year definitely feels one of the quickest years of my life!
I have used the Leuchtturm brand of bullet journal for years. However, there are so many different brands and style of bullet journal. I decided I would buy another bullet journal brand and compare it to my Leuchtturm journal. I found the Stationery Island bullet journal on Amazon and thought it would be perfect for this experiment. If you are a bullet journal lover like me, or you are thinking about starting a journal and not sure what would be right for you, I am hoping this post is helpful to you.
It has been a couple of years since I have started calligraphy and it has been an on and off creative activity for me. But in the last year or so I have definitely been practising and experimenting more with different styles and various pens.
