Personalise your journal
There are endless ways you can use your journal to organise all aspects of your life. Above and over the page, Teri’s put together some visual inspiration for you, and you can download a selection of her brush lettered page titles at www.molliemakes.com to cut and stick inside your journal. Here are some of our layouts to get you started:
Habits: Start the new year with a new set of positive habits and record your progress each day.
To-do lists: Whether it’s a daily, weekly or monthly schedule – or a combination of all three – plan out your tasks and goals.
Finances: Set targets to help you save money, or just budget your monthly expenses so you can keep track of your spending.
Goals: Is there something you want to achieve this year? Break down the steps you need to take to do this to help focus you.
Planning: Organise a trip or holiday, or note down decorating ideas and inspiration for your home, cutting out and pasting in pictures you can annotate.
Lists: Make a note of books you’ve always been meaning to read, or films you’d like to watch. When you’ve got some spare time, refer back to it and then tick them off as you finish them.
Thoughts: Unwind when you come home by using your journal as a notebook – why not collect inspiring quotes or positive moments from your day?
Health: Set up a checklist of things to do each day or each week – this could be exercising regularly, drinking more water, or scheduling time out to relax.
