If you are looking to organize your life, you should look into starting a bullet journal! When I started working, my life became a bit hectic. I had bills to remember to pay, good habits I wanted to work on, and a never-ending to-do list. I would get home from work and I would be so exhausted, I would completely forget what I was supposed to be doing that day. I knew it was time to get my life together. I did my research on Pinterest, and I decided I was going to start a bullet journal. It was the best decision ever.
Here are my top reasons you should start a bullet journal:
1. All of your to-do lists will be in one place
Before I started my bullet journal, I was using post it notes, notebooks, and my computer to write down my to-do lists. I would throw out my post it notes, forget what notebook my list was in, and I would not check my computer. I was loosing track of what items on my to-do list I had finished, and what items still had to be done. When you use a bullet journal, your to-do lists are all in one place. You can bring your bullet journal around with you, and if something pops in to your head, you can just write it down then and there.
2. The habit tracker helps you stay on top of good habits
Whenever new month would begin, I would make a list of the habits that I wanted to start doing. For example, I wanted to start reading my book for 20 minutes every single day. The habit tracker in my bullet journal allows for me to be accountable for my 20-minute reading habit. I check off if I did that task that day, and I am able to see how many days I read for 20 minutes a day every single month. It makes you feel so good knowing you accomplished your goal at the end of the month.
3. A gratitude list helps you stay grateful and content with your life
I keep a list of things that I am grateful for in my bullet journal. Every single day, I take 5 minutes to write down three things that I am grateful for that day. Even if I had the worst day, writing down this gratitude list allows me to see the good in that particular day. At the end of the month, I look back on my gratitude list for the month and reading it makes me so happy. I am so much more grateful after starting this list in my bullet journal and content with my life. The days of the week fly by and we forget the little things that made us happy each day. The gratitude list allows for you to look back months later and remember little happy memories.
