10 Bullet Journal Ideas to Kickstart your New Obsession
Bullet journals have become a hot hobby lately and I am not mad about that even a little bit.
These nifty little things help keep you organized, focused, accountable and, in many cases, for those of us with a mental illness, a wee bit more sane. Need to back up a second? Learn how to start a bullet journal.
Here are ten bullet journal ideas to kickstart your new obsession:
1. Meal Planning
Meal planning tends to be the bane of most people’s existence. Especially when you’re feeding a family. This idea from Sublime Reflection is bright, colorful, and ingenious.
2. Habit Tracking
The perfect way to take stock of healthy habits is to track them. Doing so with neon pens like craftyenginerd did doesn’t hurt either.
3. Goal Setting
You can’t get there if you don’t know where you wanna go. I love this idea from emschwartzrdn about jotting down a few goals in different categories of your life to help keep your eyes on the prize.
4. Travel Logging
I am obsessed with The Krafty Owl‘s idea of creating a map of where you tend to travel and coloring each location in once you explore that place. Could be a great way to track local adventures too.
5. Show Binging
It’s no secret we are a society of binge-watchers. I think this idea from bujo_planner is an adorable way to keep track of what season you’re in and which episode you left off on when you dozed off after nine straight hours of a Grey’s Anatomy marathon.
6. Song Listening
I don’t know about you, but I sometimes forget the name and artist of songs that make me feel real good. This idea to create a page about the emotion the songs on the page evoke as a central focus from pepperandtwine is so smart.
7. Home Projecting
Anyone else have a laundry list the size of Texas of what things you want to improve around the house? No? Just me? Well me and mebeleen I suppose. This super cute representation of her house with all the little things she’d like to tackle in each room keeps things neat and underwhelming. Which is exactly how home improvement projects should go.
8. Book Reading
Any avid reader out there loves keeping track of the treasure trove of stories they’ve been whisked into. maryj13 is certainly onto something with this design to keep a running list of just that.
9. Task Completing
The basic of all basic purposes for bullet journals: making your to-do lists. This layout from southerdaisybybh is so clever with the inclusion of the day’s weather as well.
10. Important Date Remembering
A quick overview of big, important birthdays and holidays is such a time saver when it’s time to send cards or gifts. This layout that covers the year’s events from Passion Themed Life is so light and refreshing and colorful, yet simple. I love it so much.
