Memory keeping and journaling is one way I spend my time off screen during the week. I find it soothing to exercise my brain in a creative way that is functional and expressive. Here are some things I tried in my planner and journal this week.
Memory Keeping & Journaling
Currently Pinning & Other Inspiration
I was very inspired this week! I did a lot of browsing on the train and wanted to log the details. These might come in handy when I need ideas to blog about.
Keeping Up With Current Events
I saw a bullet journal instagram a while back where they wrote down the biggest headlines of the week. I thought it was a great idea… especially with all the breaking news we’ve had!
This week in my planner, I tried breaking down each section in the new mini layout by three categories: personal, wedding, and blog. It wasn’t very effective for me, so next week I am going to use a different vertical breakdown: morning, afternoon, and evening; this will include work and personal plans.
The Hourly Layout
In my work planner, which is a separate section in the same planner, I tried to use the grid layout as an hourly, but didn’t find it very effective since the space was too small. This week I decided to keep it as simple as possible and use the top section for meetings, and leave the bottom grid for note taking and general list making.
Other ways to use a vertical layout:
- Social media channels
- Meal planning: breakfast, lunch, dinner
- Events, to do, and daily highlights
- Your plans, your partner’s plans, and other family members
- Work, chores, fitness plans and tracking
- High, medium, and low priority
How are you using your planner for 2019?
