Bullet journalling, as I said last week, is a system that I use for planning and generally keep myself functioning – it’s therapy as well as an organizational tool.
You can choose from a wide variety of spreads within the bullet journal system, and even create your own. One of the most useful is the weekly spread. This is an overview of your week, and there are several different methods you can use to create one. I’ve been through a few in the year that I’ve been bullet journalling.
My current weekly set-up:
The first photo is my first weekly page -I always do it on the right hand side which can cause some issues) – I use it as a basic task list, and a way to keep track of the dates and which week of the year I’m in, as well as tracking which book I’m currently reading and what I’m reading each day of the week.
The second photo is my current weekly spread and a relatively new one to me. I use it to block out my time on a daily basis. With my university classes all at odd hours, and blocks of time between things, I felt I needed a way to visually see what time I have throughout the day to get other things, like my writing, done.
The two pictures above are blank spreads, and they’re only one idea of how to lay a weekly spread out. A lot of people don’t need both a weekly spread and daily spread, instead they combine them into one. Check out these examples to see what I mean.
Some bullet journalers also use their weekly spreads for habit trackers, step counters, food trackers – all sorts of things.
Again, more examples here.
Next week I’ll go into monthly spreads, as I’ll be setting up mine for the month of November! How did that month happen already? 🙁
