We love using graph paper for our bujo as it makes it easy to place different sections and notes on each page.
How To Make Your Daily Spread Work Best For You
The very first tip we have is to make sure you make a habit of doing this daily.
Find a routine that works well for you and stick to it.
Maybe it is best for you to make up your daily bullet journal layout the night before? Or make it part of a beautiful morning routine by getting up early and creating your daily.
Create a spread that reflects your life, habits, and goals. Maybe you want to become fitter or healthier?
Add a habit tracker to your daily page that keeps track of the new habits you want to form… or old habits you are trying to change.
Do doodles help you relax and make you happy when you look at your bujo? Then be sure to leave some space to create some artwork on your spread.
Another great tip is to keep it as simple as you can.
Only add those things that you need and help you be productive each day.
This can take some time to perfect so keep experimenting with what works for you and don’t be afraid to change, delete and add things as you go along.
