I don’t know about you but this coronavirus pandemic has really made me reevaluate a lot of things. One of the main things I’ve reevaluated is my weekly bullet journal spread. I’ve seen a lot of people basically giving up on their journal’s during this time, but for me, this is one of the times I need it the most. Obviously I’m not planning a lot of things, but having the journal has helped me stay grounded. I know what day it is and I know what tasks I need to get done to feel somewhat normal.
How my Weekly Bullet Journal Spread Changed
So much has changed in such a small time. So many events have been cancelled or rescheduled, priorities have changed, grocery pick-up is scarce.
With life basically being cancelled, I decided I didn’t need much room for my days of the week. I found some inspiration on facebook or pinterest for my weekly bullet journal spread and set to work.
I wanted to keep the same long list of to do’s but I didn’t really need as much room as I did previously. I was able to consolidate my entire weekly spread onto one page, including my habit tracker.
I also gave up on tracking my social media numbers weekly. I had found that I kept forgetting to update these numbers and decided to make a entire spread to just track everything related to the blog. You can see that HERE in my April monthly set up post.
How my Weekly Bullet Journal Spread Stayed the Same
I am fortunate enough to be able to work from home with my job. While this is definitely a blessing, it also posed many obstacles as well. I knew I needed to use my bullet journal to keep me on track.
First, I knew when I made the transition to working from home, I needed to set some standards for myself. I have a really bad habit of being lazy. I knew I needed to keep some routine, or I would end up being a hot mess. So I basically pretend like I’m still going into the office but dressing extra casual (leggings and sweatpants). Given this goal, I decided to keep my weekly habit tacker relatively the same.
I also wanted to keep the same long list of to do’s but I didn’t really need as much room as I did previously. I also kept an area for meal planning… even though the plan never really seems to happen anymore.
