Bullet journaling has become one of the most popular journaling and note-taking methods due to its high customizability, meditative nature, and aesthetic. It is very useful for productivity trackers, agendas, and lists. Though bullet journaling has traditionally been a pen-and-paper art, we decided to try it out with NoteLedge. Here are some bullet journal tips for you to make good use of the tools NoteLedge offers!
What to Journal?
A bullet journal is a bit like a personal assistant — it can be a personal diary, to-do list, and daily agenda planner all in one. Ultimately, it’s up to you what to journal, but we have a couple of suggestions if you’re stuck!
- Many bullet journalers enjoy making agenda “spreads”; these are typically to-do lists and calendars accented with decorations or art according to your personal taste. The spread attached below can be easily done using the many versatile pens on NoteLedge and a picture off of Pinterest (see this link to learn how to directly attach pictures off of the web using the in-app web browser). Alternatively, you can try out the checklist function for easy to-do lists.
- Another great journaling idea is to compile pictures and quotes that fit your personal aesthetic. Try incorporating quotes that will inspire you and encourage a positive mindset! You can add NoteLedge’s free stickers, draw your own designs, or add in pictures from the internet to make your quotes more visually appealing.
- One of the most popular bullet journal ideas is productivity tracking. Log current reads or Netflix shows you’re watching, or track your daily water intake. It’s fun to have a visualizer for your progress and it can also be a great accountability tool! Additionally, you can keep track of your current or future goals and set deadlines. Tracking your progress proves to be easier than ever with the NoteLedge app — never fear losing your journal again when it’s all stored in-app or in Kdan Cloud!
