February Bullet Journal Spreads

We are back with another Bullet Journal Spread. I kept things pretty consistent from January as I found that I used them and I liked all of them.

I went with another nature kind of theme from mountains to a cabin (that is definitely located in the mountains) I added a touch of pink for Valentines day but didn’t want to go for an entirely pink theme.

For the calendar spread I wanted to go for seperated squares with some shadowing and start from the first day of the month and end on the last instead of using up space with additional squares.

One of my favourite and what I find to be the most useful spreads are my trackers.

I track my sleep, mood and stress up the top to allow comprison between each month.

I then track my (loose) internittent fasting and on the other page I track things that I am eating and doing i.e. exercise.

the next pages are my instagram post schedule and my To Be Read page (lets please ignore the ink splodge – I am so annoyed)

My last double pages are my reading tracker which this month is Scamp themed and my reading log. On the last page I plan to use as a monthly review.

My new addition this month is a journal page. January was a bit of a rough month and I’ve found myself reflecting.

I wanted to have a space to write these reflections so that I can look back on them in the future.

2020 ‘Bullet’ Journal Set Up & January Spread

After finding some success in tracking my life using a bullet journal in 2019 I decided to continue it into 2020.

With the new year, I decided to get a dotted bullet journal. I am so glad I made the decision because I definitely find it easier then using the gridded notebook I used last year. I ended up picking up an Archer & Olive notebook after hearing great things about them.

The Spreads

I wanted to keep my title page super simple this year. I didn’t want to use to much colour or crazy designs just in case I got bored of them throughout the year.

After my title page I wanted to have a section that lists the goals I have for 2020.

I just wanted to keep this one simple too with the goals listed, some broken down into a couple of steps to help achieve these goals.

2020 at a glace was definitely one of the pages that took the longest to set up. I do wish that I’d left a little space to write some events down, however I think it will work just fine.

I really want to focus on some more positive aspects of each week, especially since when things get busy at work I tend to get overwhelmed.

I am really happy with this spread, again its simple with a little splash of colour.

This page is one of my absolute favourites. I’m really happy with the simplicity and the green.

Instead of doing a bookshelf to colour in as I read a book however when I tried that in 2018 I would either forget or confuse myself. I definitely find it easier to fill in the title and author.

A space to write down ideas and any thoughts I have.

Went for a different colour with this one, you know just to spice it up.

January Spread

I really wanted to go for a mountain theme because I absolutely love mountains and the green of forests.

I plan to keep every month on the minimal side.

Every month I plan to put some notes in each day of what I end up doing – if its anything interesting.

This is a spread that I am super excited for! I got the idea from Elsa Rhae on YouTube.

I am hoping that its a good way to see how tracking what I put into my body might correlate with my mood, stress and sleep.

I have also started tracking my intermittent fasting. I’m not super strict with this and I really take every day as it comes but I think it will again be interesting to see if there is any kind of correlation.

My goal with my instagram is to post a photo each day I post a blog post, usually going along with what I’ve written about that day.

I was initially really goodd with doing this but found i started getting muddled and posting the wrong images on the wrong days so I thought if I wrote it all down here I could check back before posting.

My second last spread for 2020 is my TBR spread. I was – if you can’t tell – going for a bit of a mountain theme in everything so set it up similarly to last year but with a mountain related drawing.

I absolutely love how this spread turned out.

My last spread for January is my reading Log and reading tracker. Here I will list each book I’ve read as I read them as well as tracking what days I complete what type of reading.

Overall I am really happy with how everything for the beginning of 2020 has turned out in this journal, I’m looking forward to exploring more ideas in February.

2019 ‘Bullet’ Journal Flip Through

‘Bullet’ Journaling is something that I only began doing in the latter part of 2019. I was struggling to find a way to track the things I wanted to track -pretty much all reading related – as well as a place to have my thoughts complied.

The Journal I used in 2019 was one that I purchased in Japan a couple of years ago.

I couldn’t think of the best way to do this because if I explained all the spreads then this would be a hell of a long post so I’m going to just touch on a few key pages…

I found these little ‘Book Read’ pages really helpful for each month. Just a quick spot to put down when I completed a book and the rating I gave them.

The challenge was I always forgot to check back here when I posted my review and my rating probably changed.

I LOVED doing my TBR this way!

Its so fun, I absolutely love being able to go over the lines with a different colour once I’ve completed the book.

I continued this in 2019 and have kicked off 2020 doing the same thing.

This was the spread I created for the Triwizard Tournament Readathon. I might of gone a little over the top but I’m really happy with how it all turned out.

Overall, I learnt a lot about journalling during 2019 and I cannot wait to continue to try some new things in 2020!
