Starting a Bullet Journal isn’t hard. At least it doesn’t have to be. Sometimes it’s good to go back to the basics.

You don’t need to have a fancy-smancy journal like all those found on social media. If you are artistic and would like to spice up your journal then by all means. But a lot of people started with just a blank book and a pen or pencil.

The use of the bullet journal is so wide. From keeping track of daily tasks to marking down your mental health and everything in between. It’s a book that can change with you. And if you don’t setup more than a month at a time you can get a feel for it and change or add/take away stuff for the next month. 

I personally love the Mood Trackers the best. That’s usually where my idea for a theme starts and then I expand from there trying to keep the feel of the rest of the month cohesive to the one theme.

Now there are lots of ways to decorate your journal. You can hand draw everything (be it in pencil, pen, markers or paint) or you can decorate it with pre-made stickers and washi tapes. Combine the two to get something really unique.
