30+ Bullet Journal Ideas To Try

Favorites

  • Favorite Hobbies – make a page out of your favorite hobbies. You can sketch and draw them, color them in, or just make a list if you’re not feeling particularly creative.
  • Favorite Movie or TV Show Thoughts and Review – What’s a great movie or series you’ve just finished but can’t get enough of? Write all those feelings down in your journal.
  • Favorite Reads of the Month – If you’re a reader like me, you’ll surely have a favorite book/s of the month. This is a perfect prompt to make in your bullet journal. Write down your thoughts about the book, your favorite character, your favorite scene, and the best takeaway you got from it.
  • Favorite Podcasts – Are there any podcasts you’re loving at the moment? You can feature them one by one in your journal!
  • Favorite Poetry – Maybe you like reading prose and poetry. You can make a page on your journal for it.
  • Favorite Song Lyrics – Maybe you have a recent favorite song and a certain part of its lyric is stuck in your head. Yep, that’s another prompt!
  • Favorite Snacks – Cookies? Candy? Chocolate cake? What food do you like snacking on? Dedicate a page for it.

Monthly Prompts

  • Goals Page – You can do this prompt every month or every other month (depends really on you) to track what goals you’ve achieved. Make your goals feasible and direct so they’re measurable. 
  • Monthly Memories – Write down your favorite memories for the month. You can look back on them on bad days to remind yourself that life has happy moments in between.
  • Monthly Playlist Spread – Do you listen to music frequently? Make a monthly playlist of your top 10 songs or any number of songs you like. It’s a fun spread to make! 
  • Monthly Review – It’s good to sit down once a month and reflect on how the days before you went. How was your month overall? Was it challenging? Was it a good month? How did the days feel like? How was your mood throughout the month? Write out your thoughts on this monthly review page. 
  • Quotes Page – Fill one page of your bullet journal with a quote that resonated with you and decorate it however you want.

To Practice Mindfulness

  • Daily Affirmations – To achieve that sense of peace and contentment, we must practice loving ourselves and accepting our flaws. Some positive affirmations can help with that.
  • Daily Routine Page – How does your normal day go by? Jot down or draw what your daily routine looks like.
  • Dream Log – Dreams are fickle and we always forget most of them just after we wake up. If you want to remember your dreams, you can make a dream log so you can look back on them when you want to. 
  • Everyday Gratefulness – Practicing gratefulness every day is akin to being mindful. List down one thing you are thankful for every day.
  • Highlight Of My Day – You can also dedicate a page when something good happened to you. Write down the highlight of your day in detail as you prefer. 
  • Lessons Learned – It’s great to keep track of the things that made an impression on us. Whether it’s something good or bad, the important thing is we’ve learned something from the experience.
  • Mistakes That Shaped You – It’s not pretty to recall the mistakes we made, but it can make a difference when we reflect on these things. We can see where we went wrong and how we can push ourselves to become better.
  • Self-Care Ideas – What are your favorite things to do to take care and pamper yourself? This is the page for that!
  • Things I’m Proud of – It’s good to celebrate wins, even the smallest things. Make a page on your bullet journal dedicated to those things that you are most proud of.
