When I first heard about this concept of creating your own journal to help you keep track of your own life more, I must admit I didn’t see how it could work. I saw multiple photos of beautifully laid out pages but when I thought about the reality of it and the time it probably took to create them, I didn’t see it being very practical. However, with my mental health not being in the best of places, I decided to give it a go along with my flatmate as I had nothing to lose.
Three months on and I am in love with my bullet journal. Every night before going to bed I would take ten minutes out to sit down and somewhat reflect on my day. I enjoy the time that I spend creating new pages and in the long run it really helps to make me feel more positive and that I have my life in order a little bit more. Before starting bullet journal, I loved watching videos and looking up new Instagram accounts to see all the beautiful layouts and spreads that people have created. So, I thought I’d show you a couple of pages of mine without showing too much as some are a little personal.
Overall, I’d highly recommend creating one. It doesn’t have to be glamorous it could be very basic and simple, but it will help to show the importance of keeping track of the little things of life and give you a place to store some of your ideas and thoughts. What are your thoughts of bullet journals? Have you got a bullet journal? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
