Happy March everybody!
Spring has definitely made it's appearance in Cyprus already and I'm really excited! March is also an important month for me, because on the 7th it'll be exactly 1 year since I've started bullet journaling! This has been an amazing year for me and I'm very grateful to have found this planning system. :)
The focus for March is to finish 1-2 projects I already have in the pipeline, and meet their deadlines. So, the layout for this month has been quite simple and I've only kept the important pages and layouts that work for me. This is how I've set up my bullet journal for March:
This is the first page of the new month. I love how the little penguin/Leprechaun turned out! It puts a smile on my face :)
I'm keeping the gratitude page. It really keeps me grounded and focused on the important things in my life. I decided to add a bit of colour and I'm really happy with the result! I was inspired by the amazing @heartistic.jess :)
I've created a FREE printable of the gratitude page just for you :)
I'm changing up the monthly spread again. The one I did last month didn't work that well for me. So, I changed the layout and I'm focusing more on the tasks and the to-dos for the month.
Last month, I decided to include a habit tracker again in my set up, but to focus on the 5 most important things for me, only. And I'm glad to inform you that it did work. I managed to fill it in every single day, whilst I was forgetting to come back to that page all the other times I tried to use a habit tracker in it's own page.
It did keep me motivated (apart from the 'clean diet' category....!), so I'm using it again this month for the same 5 things. Hopefully, I'll manage to stick to my diet this month!
The last page of my set up is my Instagram #doodlewithus challenge page for March, which as you know currently is completely blank. If you'd like to follow along, you can get all the prompts and info here.
As you can see there's lots of colour this month, which always makes me happy! Have you set up your bullet journal for March? Do you do it in the beginning of the month, or do you prefer to pre-plan everything before the previous month is finished?
