July has been an amazing month for me! I created the Handwriting Practice Guide, went on vacation and my mum came to visit from Greece! So, now that I'm relaxed, full of love and lots of good food (!) I'm ready to be more creative and more productive. So August - I'm ready for you! 😊
This is how I've set up my bullet journal for the month of August.
Since last month, I've started saving the last page of the month for a monthly review. This is where I'll go through my bullet journal and write about what happened during the month. What went well, what didn't and what I've learned from it. I also write any changes I want to make for the next month.
The next page is the first page of August, where the little penguin makes his appearance as usual. This time I decided to have him in his bathing suit eating some watermelon. I was inspired by the theme for the #doodlewithusinaugust2017 challenge, which for this month is 'Summer Fruits'. Go to this post for more information.
Next comes my monthly spread, which I made really simple and used the same layout I had for July. It really worked for me, and the two columns that separate my personal from my blog events is very very functional.
The Brain Dump page was one of the most useful pages last month. I decided to have one for each month instead of having one in my bullet journal in general. Now I don't have to go back and forth any pages and everything is more organised for each month.
One change I've made in this month's set up, is that instead of my gratitude log I now have a journal page, where I'll write one line per day. I wanted to change things up a bit and I really like the way it turned out. I'll see how it goes and next month I might add two lines per day, if I see that there's not enough space to write.
One of my goals for this month is to get more healthy. So, I made some spreads to help me focus on my diet, my exercise and my weight loss.
The diet page is the one that I've created before with all information and food ideas to get inspired and motivated.
The other two pages include my weight loss progress graph, and my workout plan that includes my arms and my abs workouts.
I also created a workout log page where I'll write analytically all the exercises I do during each day. I prefer to have this instead of a set plan where I pre-schedule everything. I tend to get bored easily and I might want to mix things up from time to time, so this works perfectly for me. The page opposite I've left it empty because I want to use it as my journal page for my workout.
The next spread I'll share with you is my first weekly spread for the month. I decided to use one of my previous layouts that I really really like. It's very functional, practical and colourful.
The last spread I have included in my August set up is the one for the #doodlewithusinaugust2017 IG challenge, which is currently empty! 😊
So, there you have it. That's one more month set up in my bujo. What new spreads have you added in your bullet journal set up for this month? Leave a comment below and share with us :)
