Hey guys! Today I want to talk to you about tracking your mood in the bullet journal. This is something I only started doing in January but so far I’ve really enjoyed the process.
When I created my first one, I’d been inspired by Kayla from planningwithkay who tracks her mood in conjunction with writing about her day in one line. The one line restriction is great for people who might not be as inclined to write much about their day. I tried that in January, but for February I wanted to try a dedicated mood tracker on a single page. I used my Dear Lily Designs heart stencil to create the page and I was really happy with the result.
A year ago if anyone had asked what my bullet journal style was I would have said minimalist without batting an eyelash. I kept my spreads grey and black without any extra color. Sometimes I did a little bit of decorating (with my stencils or my Tombows or both). But my color scheme was monochromatic 99% of the time and I was quite content with it.
I see this question posed often in the bullet journal community, and almost always the answer is: it depends on you. With February mercifully behind me, I decided to keep my entire March monthly spread uniform using the same spread each week while leaving some room to decorate.
Now that we’re also quickly approaching the middle of March (seriously, how is it going by so quickly??), I need to start thinking about setting April up as well as getting my next bullet journal.
Last Friday night, after a very busy and tiring week I sat down at my kitchen table with my bujo and decided to do some de-stressing and challenged myself to come up with as many headers as I could to fill one page of my notebook using only three of my Dear Lily Designs stencils.
In a recent entry I talked about simplicity and why it works the best for me. Today I want to share with you how I brainstorm ideas for the layouts in my bullet journal now that I am mostly working with weekly spreads. This is new to me since I’ve mostly used daily spreads when I was using a smaller size notebook. Continue reading “My return to weekly spreads”
