Learn How to Bullet Journal Effectively in the New Year

By: Fatimah Coppin 

Preparing for the upcoming New Year is definitely a must.  What better way to start off 2019 than to set up a new bullet journal?

Bullet journaling is a conceptual planning system created by Ryder Carroll, where you can plan ahead for an organized lifestyle, and unleash your creativity onto the pages of your notebook. Here are some ways in which you could effectively bullet journal in the new year. Grab a pen and a notebook and let’s get organized!

Yearly Overview

Incorporating a customized yearly overview into your bullet journal is a great way to look at your year in a bigger perspective. Not only can you keep track of all the days and weeks of certain months, but you can highlight any days of personal importance. This reference prevents you from forgetting important days, and allows you to see the days ahead to see deadlines, projects, and more.

Tip: Include an “Events” portion so you could become more interactive with your calendars. Highlight or write down holidays, deadlines, or other events from your calendar.

Year in Pixels

Setting up a “Year in pixels” will make your journal a little more personal. It also encourages you to write into your journal more often! Every day, color in a box with a color in according to how you feel every day of the year. This master mood tracker will also give you a chance to reflect on your feelings for the year.

Tip: Use Zebra Mildliners for a unique variation of color, as it will help distinguish the different moods you want to include in your tracker!

Monthly Goals

Creating a list of goals for yourself in your journal for an assigned month will help you achieve your objectives. Creating realistic goals each month will help you remain focused.

Tip:  When creating goals, organize them under categories (such as fitness, academics, or habits) to help you take things one step at a time and to prevent any confusion in setting up different goals. This will allow you to achieve your goals faster.

Idea Pages

Creating idea page(s) for your journal is a great way to quickly jot down formulated ideas, or even plan for projects you may be working on. For instance, this page can include artistic or organization ideas you could implement in your journal or daily life. It can also include academic ideas for when you come up with studious plans.

Tip: Make the page blank! Create enough space to branch out your thoughts and jot down ideas that may leave your mind the next second.

Creativity pages

Creativity pages are a great way to unleash your artistic or creative abilities. Save some pages in your journal solely for creative purposes for you to brainstorm new artistic styles, inspire and motivate yourself, or even relieve some stress.

Hope these Journaling idea layouts and components will help you in your bullet journaling adventures for 2019. Wish you the best of luck, and happy planning!
