Hey there Bujo lovers! So excited that you have found my little space of the internet! I have been really getting into this new planner system (well new to me) and I am so excited to share this with everyone.
Bullet journaling has been like a top finally finding it’s balance point and spinning so perfectly – still chaotic but centered. I get to be creative, but within nicely drawn out lines, organized but with freedom. It molds to my current needs and wants and allows me to have full control of my life. I think I’m getting a little dramatic but I really like it.
The funnest challenge for me has been finding a weekly layout that works for me. I don’t want it to be the exact same every week, but I am still narrowing down what really needs to be in there every week! These are 7 examples of different layouts I have used since I started my journal.
I didn’t attempt my first weekly layout until February 10th and I tried to fit as much as I could into the two pages! I crammed in:
- 6 days (Friday to Wednesday because I was being spontaneous)
- Activity tracker + Workout Plan
- Habit tracker
- Meal planner
- Blog planner project list
- and a to do list
All topped off with a fun little quote (added in after picture)
A Sunday well Spent brings a week of content
It was a busy layout but really useful and I tried something very similar the next week.
Week two was really similar but with a few key changes. I started this week on a Monday and crammed all 7 days in a row. I took out the work out plan (because I kept forgetting the journal at home and found it awkward to carry around at the gym) and I added in a shopping list! This was super useful to have!
Week three was heavy on the boxes and I finally figured out how to fit all the days in comfortably which made a big difference. I hated how the week before looked squished in.
I think that the big thing that I changed in this week was simplifying the blog planner. My blog is a hobby rather then a job so I’m not always as consistent on it the way I would like to be, so I thought a simple box for notes would be fine for this week. For those of you that also run blogs, you know this is something that will always keep you busy with lots of little tasks!
This is the week that I decided that maybe having a time table style layout might help me better organize my time. It wasn’t a complete failure but my days need a little more wiggle room. I would plan something into the hour block and completely over step in with the last task. It was fun though to finally add some color to my week!
I decided after last week that I am a colourful person and that my planner pages needed to show that a little more. I went for all the greens for the week of st. Patty’s! So much fun. All that’s really changed with this layout other wise in I added a homework section and didn’t add in a health tracker.
I went a little crazy one this one and cut back on the boxes. I really liked it because it was more “pretty” then the other ones. I actually really loved this layout and would use it again. I tried the workout plan again because I have a short memory and forgot why I didn’t like it the first time, it worked about as well. I tried tracking my meals a little better to but it wasn’t a fair representation of what I really ate throughout the day without a snack section.
This is my grey week. I was needing the structure of the boxes and wanted to try a new set up. I added my mini month calendar in the corner and I really liked it (mostly for looks). I put a priority box at the very top because there were a few task that were getting passed over. I then broke up the first page into four boxes
- To do
Which I think my this point are the 4 that I feel I really need in the week. The Second page was broken into 6 squares for the days, 1 square for both Saturday and Sunday. I didn’t like this and i ran out of space! After taking the picture I decided to add in an area on each day for dinner plans, step tracking and water consumption… all three of which I often forget to add in.
Since this last layout I have really changed my method… but more about that in a later post. For now I hope you are well and using your Bujo to plan for a Healthy, Happy + Adventurous Life <3
