I recently discovered Bullet Journalling and decided to give it a go. As I love planning but am notorious for being disorganised. Mostly because I can never seem to stick to using a planner for longer than a week. My hope was that if I made my bujo cute enough I would actually use It. Plus I could customize it to suit my life more. And for once my plan actually ended up working, I stuck to using my Bujo all of August. And will be continuing to use it for the rest of the year! I am currently obsessed with reading monthly Bujo setups, so I figured why not do one of my own?!
This month I experimented with using printed quotes and pictures, adding sketches and trying to stick to more of a colour theme.
My theme for this month is: Spring Has Sprung
My Intro Pages are my favourite to set up as I get to be really creative. For the quotes page, I incorporated some of my current favourite quotes. As well as some cute pictures I printed off, that I think justs scream spring. For the title page, I used an idea I got off Pinterest and put my own spin on it. By incorporating some of my favourite flowers that I see around during spring.
CALENDAR + MONTHLY EVENTS
This month I used a colour coded calendar. I love it because its super minimalistic and I can fit more than one activity on the same day. As the actual event is written down in the space below. I use highlighters to colour code certain events: Pink is for appointments, orange will be for exam days and yellow for any other events. Below the calendar, I write out the event, the date it’son and the time. As well as any other details/reminders I’d like to add.
GOALS + GRATITUDE
I like to set myself goals for each month, some a short-term like completing all my school assignments before school holidays. Whereas others are more long-term like hitting 1000 views on my blog. I am currently working on being more mindful and gratitude is such a huge part of that. So each month I have a list that I can add to over time, of the things I’m most grateful for that month.
I love using a mood tracker because at the end of the month I get to look back about how I felt each day and figure out if I could do anything different to improve for the next month. I also like it because it reminds me that each day is a fresh start, so even if I had a bad day the day before, It doesn’t mean the next day has to be the same.
This has been a game changer for me because I can easily see what posts I need to work on this month. As well as any extra things I need to get done for my blog. I also use this space to track the views from the first week each post is live. This way I can get a better idea of what posts are most popular and help me define my blog niche a bit more. I also like to keep a note of my favourite bloggers of each month and what I love most about their blog.
CHRONIC ILLNESS TRACKER
Obviously, this isn’t something most people would have in their Bujo journal. But it has been so helpful for me lately, I use it to track my flare-ups ( a period of time when my symptoms are worse than normal). I use a scale of 1-5: 1 being normal symptoms and 5 being extremely bad. It’s also great because when I have doctors appointments I can take it and show how my days have been symptom wise.
That’s all I have for my set up for this month, If you want to see more Bujo Setups on my blog please let me know because I love doing them!
