Try A Bullet Journal
If your New Year’s resolution was to journal more or write everyday, you still have time to catch up! We love the idea of a bullet journal. You still write every day but in smaller amounts. A bullet journal is just a notebook that accommodates a huge variety of planning schemes. You can create calendars and to-do lists, and you can also use it as a diary, a brainstorming notepad, and more.
Bulletjournal.com gives a great overview of how to start. The site says, “Note-taking and traditional journaling take time; the more complex the entry, the more effort is expended. The more effort expended, the more of a chore it becomes, the more likely you’ll underutilize or abandon your journal. Rapid Logging is the solution. Rapid Logging is the language in which the Bullet Journal is written. It consists of four components: topics, page numbers, short sentences, and bullets.”
For a great journal, decide how big or small you want. You might like lined pages or a more grid style page. Many people love Moleskine for their notebooks. Find the site right here.
Pageflutter is also a great resource for journaling. She says, “I used a year-at-a-glance page (with traditional calendar months) as my first page in my 2016 journal and really liked it. Repeated in 2017. The page doesn’t take long to make, and it’s a great cheat sheet to use throughout the year.”
Journaling is a great way to record your life and your memories. It can also help you know just what you need to accomplish during the month or the year. Accumulating several journals gives you the opportunity to look back and really see how much you’ve changed or grown. Find what works for you as you journal and try new techniques.
