My Minimalist Bullet Journal for 2017

Jan 29, 2017

It’s been a couple of weeks since 2017 has started. I started off the new year with some tweaks to my bullet journal. 2016 wasn’t the best year for using my bullet journal. I used it a lot when I was in school but not so much when I was working. I’m aiming to be more productive outside of work this year though! In light of my new goal, I decided it was best to revamp my bullet journal. This year’s theme is work-life balance. One of my friends jokingly said, “It seems like you never have any fun.” Thus, I resolve to have more fun!

Monthly Habit Trackers

I’ve never stuck to a habit tracker in full before. This year I aimed to make them as minimal as possible. No rulers were used in making these. It took about half an hour to do all twelve months. I condensed the monthly log because I really don’t have that many events, usually.

Monthly Health Trackers

On the other side of the monthly habit trackers are the monthly health trackers. This mostly focuses on physical health with a side of mental health too. I’m trying to track my calories, steps I’ve taken, weight, and my mood each day.


The Verdict

Since I had a couple of weeks to settle into my bullet journal, I can safely say that I’m still pretty bad at using my bullet journal everyday. Honestly, this is definitely a mental health thing. When I find myself in a depressive slump, I do not feel like doing anything. You can tell when my mind became a little clouded and it wasn’t until a couple of days ago that I finally got out of it. Hopefully, February will fare better.
