After finding some success in tracking my life using a bullet journal in 2019 I decided to continue it into 2020.
With the new year, I decided to get a dotted bullet journal. I am so glad I made the decision because I definitely find it easier then using the gridded notebook I used last year. I ended up picking up an Archer & Olive notebook after hearing great things about them.
I wanted to keep my title page super simple this year. I didn’t want to use to much colour or crazy designs just in case I got bored of them throughout the year.
After my title page I wanted to have a section that lists the goals I have for 2020.
I just wanted to keep this one simple too with the goals listed, some broken down into a couple of steps to help achieve these goals.
2020 at a glace was definitely one of the pages that took the longest to set up. I do wish that I’d left a little space to write some events down, however I think it will work just fine.
I really want to focus on some more positive aspects of each week, especially since when things get busy at work I tend to get overwhelmed.
I am really happy with this spread, again its simple with a little splash of colour.
This page is one of my absolute favourites. I’m really happy with the simplicity and the green.
Instead of doing a bookshelf to colour in as I read a book however when I tried that in 2018 I would either forget or confuse myself. I definitely find it easier to fill in the title and author.
A space to write down ideas and any thoughts I have.
Went for a different colour with this one, you know just to spice it up.
I really wanted to go for a mountain theme because I absolutely love mountains and the green of forests.
I plan to keep every month on the minimal side.
Every month I plan to put some notes in each day of what I end up doing – if its anything interesting.
This is a spread that I am super excited for! I got the idea from Elsa Rhae on YouTube.
I am hoping that its a good way to see how tracking what I put into my body might correlate with my mood, stress and sleep.
I have also started tracking my intermittent fasting. I’m not super strict with this and I really take every day as it comes but I think it will again be interesting to see if there is any kind of correlation.
My goal with my instagram is to post a photo each day I post a blog post, usually going along with what I’ve written about that day.
I was initially really goodd with doing this but found i started getting muddled and posting the wrong images on the wrong days so I thought if I wrote it all down here I could check back before posting.
My second last spread for 2020 is my TBR spread. I was – if you can’t tell – going for a bit of a mountain theme in everything so set it up similarly to last year but with a mountain related drawing.
I absolutely love how this spread turned out.
My last spread for January is my reading Log and reading tracker. Here I will list each book I’ve read as I read them as well as tracking what days I complete what type of reading.
Overall I am really happy with how everything for the beginning of 2020 has turned out in this journal, I’m looking forward to exploring more ideas in February.
