Getting started with a bullet journal is easy and there are many benefits it will bring.
A bullet journal can provide an easy way to track your whole life, or just parts of it. It can be a place to store all your thoughts, feelings, appointments, and life goals, whether for today, next week, or 10 years from now. It is up to you how big or small it becomes.
Whatever you choose, there are many benefits of a bullet journal. Here are some of them.
Reduce Stress and Anxiety
First of all, if you struggle with a lot of stress and anxiety on a regular basis, the bullet journal can help with that.
You are able to record your moods and behavior changes. This can help to determine triggers for anxiety and panic attacks.
Another way it helps is in scheduling your life. As a result you won’t miss appointments or events and will be more focused on a daily basis. This will be a great stress relief.
You can also become a more organized person with the help of a bullet journal.
It might be that you are great at remembering to get to work on time and take your kids to their dentist appointments. But, you tend to forget about your daily fitness regimen or don’t feel organized enough for meal planning. The bullet journal can help with these tasks and much more.
Replace Traditional Planner
Planners are great, but there tends to be some limitations with the store-bought varieties. They aren’t very customizable, so you must use whatever calendar layouts and note pages provided. This limits you to how much you can include on each page and what sections there are.
A bullet journal replaces your planner. It is then setup to include anything and everything that you find important.
Get On Top Of Personal Goals
Bullet journals can give you a better idea of what your personal goals are and what needs to be done to reach those goals. You will start including lists, aspirations, and bucket lists.
This helps you plan out what you want from life and what tasks you need to achieve them.
Track Regular Habits
When you enter detailed information about your daily life, you will be able to track regular habits.
For example, if you have a food and exercise log section, it lets you see what you are eating on a regular basis, how often you eat out, and what areas of your fitness routine need work. You can also track moods, resulting anxiety or stress, or track your daily expenses to see where you might be able to cut back.
Bullet journaling has many benefits apart from being a ‘planner’. It will help you get more organized, achieve your goals and track habits with a lot less stress.
