Have You Tried Bullet Journaling?

You may have heard of Bullet Journaling before, but have you ever tried creating one for yourself? A Bullet Journal is like a life hack.  It’s a flexible system that allows you to keep track of your daily activities (whether work or personal life) and it fits your needs, habits, likes, goals, schedules, and anything under the sun that you wish to track and organize. And the good thing about it is that you don’t need fancy tech gadgets, just a pen, and a notebook and you are good to go!

Bullet journaling is a perfect match for those who love to write (especially those that are into keeping a diary) and love planning and organizing through writing. Everyone can create their own BUJO and use it how they want, but what you make really depends on your point of view and how you express yourself in written form.  I know it may not be for everyone, but I think it’s really worth a try!

Whatever you are doing in your daily life you can create your own bullet journal to keep yourself more productive in achieving your goals, be they short-term or long-term.

Here are 10 benefits of Bullet Journaling:

  1. You begin to be very creative.
  2. You can easily control your daily routine.
  3. You become more attentive to what you want to track.
  4. You can track your past, organize your present, and plan your future.
  5. You can list anything you want and track it as much as you can.
  6. It exercises your mind because you are encouraged to be creative.
  7. You become more productive because you get to see the goals you have achieved, and because you see your achievements, you begin to think about chasing some goals that you have left behind from the past.
  8. You become more confident in facing life.
  9. You become more organized and detail-oriented.
  10. Before you even know it, you noticed that you have come so far achieving your daily, weekly, monthly routine.

I can go on and on with my list, but this is all about you and getting better gradually every single day. Your life is captured on the pages of your journal, it helps you to commit and take action.

As one of The Specific Chiropractic doctors and a coach at the Women’s Wellness Center and Evolve Training Center, not to mention the outreach programs and seminars that I am attending, it is really hard to maintain and keep track of my schedule, so I am really excited to try this approach. I am a beginner but I have got nothing to lose, and as long as I can reflect on my accomplishments, happy moments, inspire and empower more women, I am down.  

As Ryder Caroll (who invented Bullet Journaling) says “Forget about what you see online. It’s not about how it looks; it’s about how it feels, and, most importantly, how it works for you.”
