Are you having a hard time deciding whether or not use a weekly spread in your bullet journal? Hand drawn weekly spreads can be time consuming to set up and maintain. Plus, using a weekly spread is sometimes thought to oppose the original bullet journaling system, created by Ryder Carroll, which uses monthly and daily logging. However, bullet journaling is a flexible system and it’s ok to customise your journal to suit your needs. A well designed weekly spread can bring structure to your bullet journal, improve productivity and provide a satisfying creative outlet. Today I’m sharing some practical ways to use a bullet journal weekly spread.
Performing a daily brain dump is a great way to empty the mind of thoughts, worries and to-dos. When we’re busy our minds become cluttered which leads to stress and overwhelm. We are unable to think clearly or work productively. Introducing a simple ‘brain dump’ exercise into your morning or evening ritual can really help. All that is required is a notebook, or sheet of paper, and a pen. It’s an exercise that works really well with Bullet Journaling. To help you get started I have added printable versions of the layouts that I use each day in my Bullet Journal to my Planner Lovers Resource Library.
When inspiration for a blog post strikes it’s good to have a designated place to jot down ideas. A notebook, or bullet journal, is perfect for keeping blog ideas and notes organised.
