If you want to be consistent with keeping a bullet journal daily spread, don’t overwhelm yourself with too much going on in your page because you’ll be creating a page a day. You may have the motivation the first few days you do it, but it’ll get old real quick if you try to keep up with elaborate spreads.
Doesn’t mean you can’t go all out once in a while, but try to stick to simple for the most part, okay?
Easiest daily logWrite the date at top and create your list. If you want some doodling, you can do it for habit tracking. (via Pin source)
Another simple bullet journal layout is a time ladder. Make a column with the hours you’re awake, and write tasks during the appropriate time frame. If you like the black, sleek lines*, use different patterns in the hour block to designate the type of activity.
For example, use vertical stripes for mealtimes, a plaid design for me time, etc. (via @journal_junkies)
Doodle of the dayThis one incorporates the time ladder feature as well, but what I like is the space for a doodle a day as a daily creative outlet. (via @bulletjournal_sascha)
Boxes for time of dayYou might want separate spaces to log tasks by time of day, such as by morning, afternoon, and evening. You can also incorporate a section for a motivational quote. (via @creatrive)
Use with stickersThis is a quick spread to track multiple things, like reminders, goals, to-do list, work stuff, and things to buy. Make it even easier by using functional planner stickers too. (via @nohnoh.studies)
These bullet journal daily log layouts and pages can seriously improve your time management if you learn to use them to learn where you time goes each day and use these bullet journal daily spreads. Go ahead, give the daily bullet journal concept a try today!
