Once upon a time, you might have kept a journal or diary which you wrote or even doodled in sometimes when you felt like putting pen to paper but had nothing to say. Now, you can do that in a more uniform and welcome way thanks to bullet journaling. If you aren’t familiar with what bullet journals are, they offer a way to reflect, journal, make lists, and even budget plan all in one spot that keeps you organized. The method was created by designer, Ryder Carroll and first shared with the public in 2013. And these free bullet journal printables make it even easier for you to organize your life in your own bullet journal.
When you write, make lists, or even draw in a bullet journal, you are doing it in a way to keep you on track for certain things. Maybe you feel calmer after a particularly rough day if you can work in your bullet journal. Or perhaps you have daily, weekly, or monthly goals you need to keep track of. Bullet journaling can help with that too. You can totally opt for a plain notebook to get you started, but going with a binder and these free printables can make you actually want to seek out your journal throughout the day and welcome the comfort it can provide.
