therabbitandtherobin_Cutomising

Bullet Journaling can be so much more than just making your day productive.
If you are familiar with the Bullet Journal System then here are some ways to make it your own, if not then first go to my previous Post about Setting up your Bullet Journal.

Once you have setup your journal, then you can get creative and experiment with different styles.

This Step is what makes the Bullet Journal Special, you can completely customize it to suit your needs and adjust as you go along or as your needs change. Some months you need space to plan events and others you just need a basic journal format.

Lets Start with the Basic Pages, your Index, Year Calendar, Year Goals and Tasks and Future Log.

Your Year Goals, Review this Monthly, and Future Log for Important Dates

Your Monthly Pages, Monthly Cover Page, Monthly Goals and Tasks, Habit Tracker and Gratitude Log.

I like to create a Monthly Cover Page themed according to the Month or Season.

Your Habit Tracker is a very handy way of Tracking your Habits and to add little “Daily TO DO Reminders” like taking your vitamins. This way you can see and track all your habits and improve them the next month.

My Gratitude Log is one of my Favorite Pages it keeps up a positive attitude. If I am having a down day I will go to my Gratitude Log and read all the things I am grateful for, this will brighten up my day and give me a positive outlook forward.

Your Daily Pages in a Weekly Dairy format.

This is my Bullet Journal, a Moleskine soft cover Journal.
Bullet Journaling is a very simple System, all you need is a Book and a Pen.

therabbitandtherobin Bujou _ Getting Started 2

Your Bullet journal will consist out of these basic pages.

• Index
• Future Log
• A Monthly Log
• A Daily Log

therabbitandtherobin Bujou _ Getting Started 3

Your Index, just like any regular Index. The Page Name and number.
Every time you make a new entry, you come back to your Index and add the Page Name and Number. This is an easy way to find anything in your Journal.

Your Future Log is for all your Important static dates and events that you know of long ahead of time. Here you can easily view them and plan ahead. Start by creating a six or twelve month log. Count the dots on your page and divide them by thee, draw a line and write each month at the top of each section. Continue by logging your important dates.

Your Monthly is for all your Goals you want to reach and Tasks you want to complete during that month. The one page will be your calendar, write down the month followed by days and date.
On the opposite page Log all your tasks for the month.

therabbitandtherobin Bujou _ Getting Started 6

Your Daily Log, this is the heart and soul of your journal. You will use this daily, start with writing down the header, day, date and month.

Your Bullet Journal Key consists of your basic Journaling indicators. a Dot is a Task, O an Event, Dash is a Note, Asterisk for priority, X it out when it is completed, forward arrow when you did not complete it and Migrate it to the next day or a back arrow if you schedule it for a later date.

When you complete your tasks for the day draw a line and start with the next day.

TIP: Make a Typography page in the back of your Journal. Write with each pen the pens name. This way you have a record of all your pens and you can see how they react with the paper.

Now you know how to setup your Basic Bullet Journal next time I will show you how to personalise it and really make it your own.

So join me in 2017, this dotted journal is available to purchase on Takealot and while you are there you can also stock up on some of your favourite Theuniskraal wine.

Mindfulness {Lifestyle}

We live in such a busy new world. We are always busy doing something, on your phone, watching TV, Chatting or planning for the next day.

We forever running around and never being truly still.

You go to bed and force your brain to switch off and sleep within minutes or you mindlessly scroll through your facebook or twitter.

We have to take a few minutes a day and reflect on the day, absorb what you have accomplished be grateful and happy.

Take 5 minutes to meditate and reflect.
You will need a Quiet Space, where you will not be disturbed, a timer or Cellphone, a Book or Page and a Pen.
