Make Time for What Matters With Bullet Journaling

Want to make better use of your days? Maybe you’d like to spend more time with your  family or more time creating or even reading? With a little planning, you can spend more time doing the things you love.

If you spend any time on Pinterest, you’ve probably seen pictures of bullet journals, those DIY planners that seem full of fancy calligraphy and intimidating layouts.

In fact, bullet journals were designed to be a simple, flexible method for improving productivity and intentionality. No artistic skills are required—all you need is a notebook and pen.

According to, bullet journaling is “best described as a mindfulness practice disguised as a productivity system. It’s designed to help you organize your what while you remain aware of your why.”
