These are my two current notebooks I'm using. At the bottom I have my bullet journal and on top is just my regular journal that I have been using more lately as I feel the need to write down my feelings or just do a general brain dump. Last week I was so busy and all over the place, I completely neglected both of my journals and this week I managed to get back to my favorite pen and paper style of organization/writing. With so many things going on in my life right now, making lists has been a life saver and I just feel a lot better when I know it's written so I don't forget anything.
This is the first and main page for September where I have a calendar for any important dates, events, reminders... Below that I made two columns, one is for the to-do list and the other one is for goals. At first I thought I would just put empty boxes in front of my to-do tasks so I can check them off when I'm done but then I got another idea! I decided to put numbers instead and then when I dedicate a certain day for each task, I will just write down the number of the task in the calendar above. For example, if my number 1 task was to publish this blog post then I would just write down #1 on September 1st. When it comes to goals, I think I have too much space so I will really have to break down goals and be very specific.
Next page is kind of hard to see but I have space for my expenses and my habit tracker. I have been tracking four habits for the past few months but this time I went with six - today when I was filling out my habit tracker I realized that six habits still might feel a little bit overwhelming so I'm not sure if I will keep up with all of them. I used to feel so discouraged and unmotivated when I wasn't able to keep up with my habits, no wonder since I used to track way more than now. Sometimes less really is better!
A new addition for this month's bullet journal spread is September Hive tracker and planner. I have a different list where I write down just random post ideas as they come to my mind but this is more structured list specific for this month. I am actually using a pencil here so if something changes I can easily erase it and move it around instead of crossing off things and making it messy. I also sectioned it my week (my weeks end on Sundays and start on Mondays) just for better post planning and organization. I actually feel like this simple spread will be very useful and I will continue making it in the upcoming months.
