Ever considered starting a bullet journal but weren't sure if it was for you? Here are 4 reasons why 2020 should be the year you finally do it.
1. It’s customisable
Finding a planner that has a layout which works for you can be stressful and time-consuming. The great thing about a bullet journal is that they're 100% customisable.
You can create a unique layout that works for your lifestyle. It can be as creative and colourful or simple and minimalistic as you like.
If you're not great at drawing don't worry, a bullet journal is designed to be functional any creative touches that are added are just a bonus.
2. No pages are wasted
Planners are great but sometimes we're either not busy enough to use it or we're too busy to use and we end up having lots of useless empty pages.
As bullet journals are customisable if you have a week where you don't use it's fine as long as you haven't created that weeks layout.
You only use the pages you need so for quiet periods you can change up your layout and use one that requires less space.
3. You can start, stop and restart whenever you want
If you find it difficult to stay consistent with using a planner or get easily bored with their layouts and buy multiple different ones throughout the year you need to start a bullet journal.
I feel like I'm repeating myself here but the freedom you get with a bullet journal means you can easily change up your layout whenever you want.
You can also stop using it for a while and then just pick up where you left off without having to purchase yet another planner.
I've been using my bullet journal for nearly a year now and I still have plenty of pages left so I can keep using the same notebook for 2020.
4. Keep you organised
Seeing everything nicely written down on paper is a fantastic way to keep you organised and help you stay on top of things.
Electronic devices are great but honestly, nothing beats the satisfaction of ticking off a task you've completed or and event you've gone to in your bullet journal.
Having one notebook with everything in it can also help you keep a clear head and stay focused as you're not flitting between 3 different apps to figure out your schedule.
So, will 2020 finally be the year you start your bullet journal?
