When I started bullet journaling, a few years ago, I honestly didn’t think I’d ever go back to using a traditional pre-designed planner! I love the freedom of the blank notebook and the simplicity and speed of daily logging. But, I’ve found myself craving a little more structure and a faster, more practical way to plan for the future. So, after researching traditional planners I’ve decided to spend a few months experimenting with a Classic Happy Planner. What I’ve discovered is that it’s possible to use a Happy Planner to be a more creative and productive bullet journaler. I’m sharing how I created my ‘Happy Planner Bullet Journal’ and the methods I’m using for planning and journaling.
Keeping up to date with mood and habit tracking in the bullet journal can be a challenge. To simplify things, I’ve designed a tracker that combines both gratitude and mood tracking in one printable. You can download this printable bullet journal tracker for free from my Planner Lovers Resource Library!
Here is a new collection of beautiful planner products from Etsy, my favourite place to shop for unique planners and accessories. Each month I share a small collection of my favourite picks, from trusted Etsy sellers, to help you discover new planning products and shops. I hope you find something you love!
In April, I reached the end of my Moleskine softcover notebook which meant it was time to move into a brand new bullet journal notebook. I love to experiment with different notebooks (it’s all part of the fun of creative journaling!) so this time I chose something completely different. Choosing a notebook, and migrating your pages, can be a little overwhelming. Follow my step-by-step system to set up a new bullet journal notebook with ease (even if you’re getting started for the first time!)
A daily journaling practice in your bullet journal is a wonderful way to clear the mind and record the events of the day. Through journaling, you’ll gain clarity and valuable insights that will help you process thoughts and emotions. I’m sharing my tips for getting started with a personal journaling practice. Plus, I have designed a floral journaling template that you can download for free when you subscribe to the Planner Lovers Resource Library.
