When we spend time doing activities we love we feel calmer, happier and more content. Too often though we set aside our hobbies and passions, choosing instead to work long hours, binge on Netflix, or take part in activities we don’t enjoy. It’s so important we make time for the things we really love. Every weekend I use my bullet journal Weekend Log to explore and prioritise my passion projects, starting with my ‘Passion Wheel’. I’m sharing a printable version of my bullet journal Weekend Log, plus tips to create your own Passion Wheel to inspire you to do more of what you love.
A weekly log in your bullet journal is a perfect place to organise your top priorities, and goals, for the coming week. Setting up a bullet journal weekly log, before diving into daily logging, will help you plan your week with intention. A weekly log is also ideal for putting together a quick dinner plan for the week, preparing for a weekly gratitude practice and tracking new habits. I’m sharing a printable weekly log template, for your bullet journal or planner, that will help you do all of this!
As the year draws to a close, it’s time to reflect on everything you have accomplished over the past twelve months. Recognising wins and challenges, and what you have learnt, will help you to move forward into the new year with intention and purpose. I’m sharing some end-of-year-reflection questions that will help with your yearly bullet journal reflection, plus some tips on preparing for a new year, and moving into your new notebook!
Want to get creative, and add a personal touch to your bullet journal daily log? If you have the time, creating a daily log layout, suited just to your needs, can be lots of fun. You can include things like meal planners, mini trackers, water intake, brain dump, to-do list or appointments. Designing a layout that works well usually involves some trial and error. A printable daily log template can take away some of the work, and provide you with a great base to start creating your own personal layout. I receive lots of questions and requests about my own daily log layout, so I’ve turned it into a printable template that you can use too! I’m also sharing ideas for using this layout, and tips for how to create your own bullet journal daily log.
