1. New Year’s Resolution Page
Include this page in your bullet journal as a reminder and to hold you accountable. Because, let’s face it, most of your new year’s resolutions won’t even last until February. And that is not what we want this year! If you’re looking for some new year’s resolution ideas, here’s a list of 50+ suggestions.
While setting your new year’s resolution, keep these things in mind.
- Make sure they’re realistic and practical.
- Divide them into actionable steps.
- Focus on the first few steps instead of stressing about the 100th step right away.
- Track your goals regularly.
- Build habits around them.
How To Create A New Year’s Resolution Page?
- Make a list of your new year’s resolutions. Here are some suggestions for you!
- Keep in mind the points mentioned above.
- Divide Your Goals into categories. This helps you prioritize better. Here are a few categories you can put them in.
- Health – eg: I will loose 10 pounds this year.
- Family – eg: I will have Friday night dinners with my family every week.
- Work – eg: I will improve my skills in *this* field.
- Studies – eg: I intent to score an ‘A’ this year.
- Personal – eg: I will read 12 books this year.
Ps – See how specific each goal is. This increases your chances of actually following up on them.
- Take a marker, and write down your heading at the top.
- Choose a template for this page. I prefer to simply divide the page into 4 categories. To keep things simple, you can also use a list template.
- Write down your resolutions for each category.
- Doodle around. Add some quotes that you like. You can also use these stickers.
- Keep track of your resolutions. Here are a few ways you can keep track.
- Divide them into quarterly or monthly goals.
- If your resolution is something you do daily, use a habit tracker.
- Every Sunday, do a weekly checkup to track your progress.
- List down your achievements, or the goals you’ve accomplished to keep yourself motivated.
2. Ideas For Travel Bullet Journal Pages
Travel is something that you can never have enough of. So, why not create a system that will allow you be more intentional with your travel.
There are numerous bullet journal page ideas to use for your travel plans. Here are some options,
1) Bucket List
I’m sure you have a lot of places you want to visit! Make a list of all your dream destinations and start crossing them off one by one.
2) Travel Planning
Pick up your bucket list and start planning. At least, determine how much money you need to save and start saving a small amount each month. Track this in your bullet journal.
This way, you’re already one step closer to taking that trip.
You don’t have to travel outstation to enjoy some me-time. View your city through the eyes of a tourist. Make a list of all the places you want to visit. For example, cafes, historical sites, Airbnbs, and hotels where you want to stay.
4) Travel Journal
Create a spread in your journal for each trip you take. You can do a simple diary entry. Add collectibles from that trip, such as stamps, subway tickets, and so on. You can also make a collage of everything you want to remember from that trip.
3. Things To Do Bucket List
Aside from travel, I’m sure you have a wish list of things you’d like to do. Dream big. You might want to do things like
- learn horse riding,
- doing an ironman,
- launch a business,
- surprising your mom with her dream car,
- Meet your idol,
- this list can go on and on . . .
Write everything down because you never know when inspiration will strike and one of your dreams will come true. You can continue to add to this list as you go.
