For a little time in February, I stopped writing myself to-do lists. There was a dip in my productivity, but I also found time for things I never usually had time for! However, now I’m back to school, lists are essential. How else can I keep track of what needs to get done? Though I spent a lot of time with friends and family, those few weeks were so disorganised. You may know that I’m not a fan of disorder!
March’s bullet journal theme is clouds. Now we are entering Spring, there are breaks in the clouds. However, when I was drawing up this set-up, it was so drizzly and grey! In the UK we had two consecutive storms. Luckily I avoided the floods. Please wish the best for those who did get stuck in it. I hope those affected get back to normal soon 🙃
I didn’t do a cover page; it’s not useful and I spend a lot of time rubbing out and recorrecting! So the first page of March is the monthly spread.
The box grid layout works best for me, even though it looks boring. It’s very functional! There is always a little strip on the side which the calendar doesn’t cover. I used this to put my habit trackers. The goals I’d like to track this month are:
I want to write a to-do list every day! Last month I got out of routine so I would like to return to routine this month.
As all months, I want to practise my cello often! If I track it, I hold myself accountable.
Less Than an Hour on My Phone
Sometimes I don’t do this, and waste the day away. Now it’s nicer outside I will naturally be on my phone less. However, tracking it is always a good motivation. If I finish a week of being below my screen time limit, I treat myself! Usually my reward is to sit down and watch YouTube for a bit.
100+ Pages Per Day
The first week of March is my readathon and I really hope I read more than 100 pages a day! But, when that’s over, I need a reason to keep reading. My habit tracker always helps me to do this.
The next spread is my book tracker! I have ambitiously got a whole page to fill. I did track this at the front of my bullet journal, but I couldn’t put my ratings in such a small space. Hopefully there’ll be a few five star reads this month.
I’ve never done this before, but I wanted to make a ‘happy clouds’ spread. Whenever something good happens, I’m going to write it in one of these clouds. It’s more attainable than a mood tracker!
That’s the end of my set-up for this month! Hope you enjoyed reading, if you did stick to the end.
Do you enjoy Spring? What the theme in your bullet journal this month?
The ‘M’ in March Means Mental Health. This month I am sharing with you a series of mental health related posts. There is such a stigma attached to mental health and we all need to realise how disrespectful it is to overlook this issue. In the UK, about 30% of young people have mental health problems. That is a huge number. That’s approximately 1 in 3 people! So, for those of you suffering, I hope these posts gives you some help. And for the other 70%, I hope these posts remind you to be more aware of your own mental health. Caring for your mind is just as important as caring for your body. So please tag along in this journey as we all shares our thoughts together. An overwhelming number of people wanted to help in this cause so I’ll also share with you their perspectives on mental health too!
