Get inspired with these stunning minimalist bullet journal spread ideas! Because bullet journaling doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming, I’m sharing a minimalist approach to bullet journaling.
I haven’t shared my bullet journal spreads in a while. Honestly, I got a little overwhelmed with the whole process I was following with my bullet journal. Planning my spread, making videos, and taking pictures, writing blog posts, etc. was too my for me to do on a weekly/monthly basis.
I didn’t stop bullet journaling. It was more of an off-line thing for me. Nothing fancy like I used to do before.
Feeling the pressure to post my spreads, made me realize that I was missing the whole purpose of why I started bullet journaling: a method to help me stay organized.
As Ryder Carroll, the inventor of this method, shared: The goal of the Bullet Journal is to help its practitioners (bullet journalists) live intentional lives, ones that are productive and meaningful”.
Basically he invented this bullet journal system because he wanted something that could work for anyone. A system that was easy to use, functional, quick to set up no matter the artistic level of the person using a bullet journal.
Well, this wasn’t my case. I wasn’t being intentional nor productive with my bullet journal. That’s why I stopped sharing my bullet journal here on the blog.
But I missed the art aspect of it and how I incorporated my calligraphy with my bullet journal. So I decided to get back into it, but for now, following a minimal approach to bullet journaling.
This is so that I can combine my hand lettering and some form of art and keep going with my bullet journal. Also, to make it a little less time consuming so that I can still have time to take pictures and share it with you.
