Bullet Journals and journals in general have so many benefits that many people often overlook, so we've created this list of the top 5 reasons why you should start a bullet journal.
1. It allows you to keep track of your goals
Bullet journals are the perfect place to note down your goals for the day, month or even year!
When you note down your goals you're more likely to complete them, as you'll see them written down everyday, helping you make decisions that ultimately leads to you achieving them.
2. It boosts productivity
Bullet journals allow you to set goals, track certain tasks, schedule events and basically help manage every aspect of your life all in one place. It's the ultimate diary that you can personalise to fit your needs.
I don't know about you, but when I make a to do list of all my tasks for the day it motivates me to actually complete them, just so I can check it off the list.
3. It reduces stress and anxiety
Journals have been found to be a way to help clear and calm the mind. By writing about your day you can relieve yourself or everyday stresses and let go of negative thoughts.
It also brings forward some self awareness, when reading back through your journal, to the triggers of anxiety and stress, and so help you overcome them.
