40 Must Follow Minimal Bullet Journal Instagrams

Minimalistic bullet journal layouts are of my favorite types of layouts to look at. I always find myself browsing minimal bullet journal hashtags on Instagram. Because I love these layouts so much, I thought that it would be great to share some of my favorite minimalist bullet journal accounts so that you can join me in browsing! Here are 40 must follow minimalist bullet journal Instagram accounts!

Natalie | @pages2plans

Pages2Plans is a great account featuring beautiful minimal spreads as well as beautiful stationery.

Becky | @painted_illustrated

What I love about @painted_illustrated is how unique her notebook is. While most bullet journalers use white dot paper, Becky’s notebook has brown pages, and she rocks them!

Cristina| my.life.in.a.bullet

I love the neutral aesthetic of @my.life.in.a.bullet. Additionally, the way she decorates her images complement her incredibly gorgeous minimal layouts perfectly.

Kim | @tinyrayofsunshine

@tinyrayofsunshine is another account with gorgeous close-ups of her minimalistic bullet journal as well as stationery and bullet journaling tools!

Einfach auf das Bild klicken und dann kommt auch schon der Link. )Aber seid schnell, es gibt nicht so viele. 🙊 Hier war es die letzten Tage etwas stiller, da diese Woche ordentlich was los war. Die Buchabgabe ist im vollen Gange und dementsprechend hätte ich nicht all zu viel Freizeit, was man an meinem wöchentlichen Layout erkennen kann. 😊 Falls ihr mehr über das bullet journal Buch wissen wollt, könnt ihr gerne auf den Link in meinem Profil klicken. 🤗 Ich habe mich gegen ein dutch door layout und für eine deutlich schnellere Variante entschieden. Trotzdem hat sie alles was ich brauche, da ich diese Woche grundsätzlich nur eine große Aufgabe hatte: schreiben, schreiben, schreiben. Auf der linken Seite habe ich weiterhin meinen habit tracker und die to dos für nächste Woche. Das Thema hat es mir nach wie vor angetan. Ich liebe es! 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🇺🇸 Hey Guys, first things first: the stencil ist finally listed in my Etsy shop! Just click on the picture to get the link. But be quick, there aren’t too many 🙊 it has been a bit quiet over here for the last couple of days since I had a lot to do. The deadline for my book is coming really close so I haven’t had a lot of free time as you can see. 😊 I decided to not do a Dutch door layout this week. Instead I created this super quick layout. Without the decoration it would be possible to set it up within half an hour max! It has everything I need since I didn’t have a lot to dos for the week, there was only one: write, write, write. On the left page is enough space for my habit tracker and a section for all the to dos for the upcoming week. I still absolutely love this theme, I can’t get enough! 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lots of love, x Marie

A Razorpoint II #pilotpen + 003 #micronpen + @taroko_shop #breeze notebook + inspiration & motivation = a revised intention spread for August. . I added a couple things to the spread this time around: 1) a calendar for the month to encourage the actual execution of certain intents, and 2) using both a regular non-actionable bullet as well as an empty circular “check box”, adding the ability to include items that are reoccurring and/or ideas/meditations. In the past I’d get frustrated when I wouldn’t fulfill an intent that was reoccurring because I’d miss out on a few days or weeks, which wouldn’t give me the chance to tick of checkboxes honestly. So… I’m trying the little “>” bullet. . Last week @ahia.kaeser shared her #bulletjournal with me, which inspired me to get back to paper. I love my iPad and all that #todoist, #trello and #toggl do for me, but I’m re-admitting that paper works for me psychologically and will be re-attempting to return to a hybrid system this coming month. . And, fastest sea glass manicure in the world thanks to #colorstreetnails nail strips. All about efficiency (and buying happiness)!!! . #bujo #bujoinspiration #minimalistbujo #bujominimalist #bujoideas #bujotracker #level10 #intentions #visionboard #planning #plannernerd #plannercommunity #planneraddict #motivation #inspiration #entrepreneur #entrepreneurlife #penandink #journal #journaling #showmeyourbulletjournal

July Bullet Journal Feature | BulletLeea & Universal Bujo

Starting this month, Jihi Elephant is featuring bullet journalers and their journal at the end of every month! Each post features 1-2 journalers and their bullet journal stories. If you wish to be featured, check out the details and apply here.

To kick off the bullet journal feature project, I chose two applicants. Both of these applicants are so incredible and so different. I felt it was important to show two very different journalers, as we are all so unique in our styles. So without further ado, here are July’s featured bullet journals.

July Bullet Journal Feature | BulletLeea

BulletLeea by Leea

My name is Leea and I’m 23 years old. I come from Finland, and after living around Europe and going to college on the East Coast (of the States), I’m currently living in Southern California, with a move back across the Atlantic coming up soon. I work in the music industry, in live music and tour production specifically.

Leea’s Bullet Journal Journey

I started my bullet journal in August 2016. I was just ending my summer vacation and was heading back to college for the fall. If I remember correctly, I came across the bujo community on Instagram. Organization and planning have always been a love of mine, which is why I think the hobby got me so excited.

I totally went crazy overboard with supplies when I started, buying all sorts of pens and accessories. But I settled down, and these days my go to supplies are just a black gel pen from Muji, a few fineliners and a handful of Tombow markers. But the experimentation and playing was an important part of my bujo-journey, and I think most people go through it.

Easily Overwhelmed

There is so much inspiration and shared content across Instagram, blogs, Pinterest, and Youtube, that it’s easy to get swooped up by it all. I love that the community is based on sharing our creations and that all sorts of people are part of the community. From professional artists and graphic designers to people who have never been especially artsy (like yours truly). When I look back at my spreads, there are spreads I dislike as well as ones I love. There are ones that I loved before and don’t care so much for anymore, and vice versa.

Bullet journaling is such a journey that I think people who are interested in starting one get overwhelmed when they compare their own day one to another’s day 500. You are going to make spreads you love and ones you dislike. You may start trackers and forget about filling them in. You’re going to make spreads that don’t work for you. And you will make mistakes and smudges, wrong lines here and spills there, but they are all part of your bujo, and they’re a part of the story.

Bullet journaling is definitely an amazing tool for growth and improving aspects of your life, but in the end, it’s just a hobby, so don’t take it too seriously. Enjoy the time you get to spend making your spreads, the functionality of your very own personalized journal, and definitely delve into the community. It’s the best one I’ve ever been a part of, with so much support and creativity flowing through the pages!

Here are some tips for bullet journal beginners:

  • If you want to start a bujo, you need to just begin!
  • Don’t compare your bujo to others
  • Don’t rush; you don’t need to fill a notebook up as quickly as you’ll probably want to when you first begin!
  • If you want to draw and decorate your bujo, do!! If that’s not your style, don’t force it. Make it your own.
  • Embrace your mistakes!

Universal Bujo by Michael Fox

My name is Michael. The bullet journal method changed my life. I’m a highly creative type person with a lot going on including family, web stuff, graphic design, game design, music, blogging, and more.

Michael’s Bullet Journal Journey

Since I have several creative outlets already, my bullet journal doesn’t have to scratch that itch. But I also don’t have a lot of time to devote to something that’s supposed to save me time. So my journal is devoted to a universal, ultra-streamlined style. This Universal Journal style, as I call it, aims to get as much productivity as possible from the bullet journal with as little time and effort as possible. I started with a mini-notebook to test things out and moved to a standard sized journal for the second go. I even designed my own dotted journals to fit more with what worked for me (available at Lulu.com). In this ultra-streamlined approach, I’ve got a 3-colored system to separate 3 dimensions of my life. My monthly spread includes weekly divisions, utilizing a door for a habit tracker and wellness tracker (possibly a third tracker soon), and the monthly task list with a calendar print out I made. I use a simple two column layout for dailies and a 1:2 double column layout for note pages. I also created a free printable of Notemarks, the note bookmarks which I use for recurring lists as well as my placeholders for the monthly and daily logs. Currently, I’m on the hunt for a minimalist style for just about anything anyone would need to keep in their bullet journal.

Here are some tips for bullet journal beginners:

For those new to the bullet journal, I recommend starting simple and minimal, and jazz it up later as needed or desired. It’s a tragedy to see someone trying the bullet journal method only to give up on it because the approach they learned at first requires so much time (though it doesn’t have to). Also, it would be very helpful for newcomers to make a bullet journal board on Pinterest or the equivalent on Instagram to keep track of the journal ideas you really like. This not only serves as an inspiration collection but also as a way to get plugged into the broader bullet journal community.

Thank you so much to Leealiina and Michael for sharing their stories and hopefully inspiring other bullet journalers. I know that I am inspired by their stories! If you are interested in becoming a featured bullet journaler, check out the details and apply here!

Bullet Journaling to Manage Your Mental Health

As you know, I am a huge proponent of self-care and mental health topics. I think that being aware and knowing how to take care of our mental health is hugely linked to other forms of well-being; however, are not taken as seriously as other forms of health. This post is an inspirational list of mental health bullet journal layouts. These include mental health trackers, self-care lists, gratitude pages, and other mental wellness related layouts. This post may contain affiliate links

Mental Health Tracking

My favorite part of this layout by @wild.woman.rising is that it is not only mental health tracking but also incorporates various forms of tracking like habits, sleep, etc.

This is a layout of my own which I created for a client, it’s a generic mood pixels layout but horizontal to fit into an A6 sized notebook!

This is another year in pixels created by Little Coffee Fox which I adore! I love the use of watercolor and how she only outlined the grid, it looks very nice!

This layout is a trigger tracker by @juliettestudios inspired by @lindsaybraman. I love this layout because it is not like most other mental health layouts. This layout is far more specific than most but SO useful.

[etsy-shop shop_name=”JihiElephant” section_id=”23060710″]

Bullet Journal Layouts to Help Manage Your Mental Health

This layout is another year in pixels by me. This particular one tracks 5 different moods.

This layout is another perfect example, by @akiyamahanayu, of a layout that incorporates not only mental health items as well as spending and other habits.

While a sleep log is not necessarily a mental health tracker per say. However, I am a strong believer that sleep affects mood and well-being so closely. For that reason, I have included sleep tracking into this post.

Mood trackers are incredibly popular in bullet journaling. What I like about this one by @bu.joos is that it is not a pixel grid but instead a line graph. I love this!

I love the very creative ways moods can be tracked. In this article are several examples. This one by @megobujos is a geometric mountain range.

This is one of my favorite layouts which I have done for a client. This one is in an A6 size notebook and looks so fun!

Bullet Journal Layouts to Help Manage Your Mental Health

Similarly to the above sleep log, this log is not necessarily about mental health but it includes tracking medication, sleep, and water. Also, this one was created in an A6 sized notebook.

This final mood tracker by @rachelbujo is beautiful. I love the wheel design, green color scheme, and natural vibe. A circle or wheel design is a fun way to track moods!

Self-Care Layouts

Bullet Journal Layouts to Help Manage Your Mental Health

I am a huge proponent of self-care. Sometimes you don’t need a super intricate layout to incorporate self-care into your bullet journal. A simple list can be perfect.

This is a layout that takes a simple list of self-care ideas and ads cute doodles! Love this one by MissLouie.

Similar to the layout previously, this one by @mashaplans is a creative way to list self-care ideas!

I love this idea by Little Coffee Fox because of the creative alphabet twist! I think this layout can be so beneficial for someone who is struggling to come up with self-care ideas.

This self-care bullet journal layout is different than the ones previously mentioned. However, I love it! It’s such a simple idea and looks so clean. This page is a great layout by @hollylovesplanning.

[etsy-shop shop_name=”JihiElephant” section_id=”23060710″]

I know I have already shown a ton of self-care list layouts. BUT this one by the Bullet Journal Addict is so pretty so I wanted to share it too.

Gratitude Layouts

Bullet Journal Layouts to Help Manage Your Mental Health

I love gratitude layouts. I think the practice of gratitude is so important. Simply remembering good things can change your mindset for the better. This layout is a simple list page where you can add anything you want to the page that reminds you of things you are thankful for.

This gratitude tracker by @heartistic.jess is a fun twist on sunshine. Each day of the month you write something you are grateful for in one of the sunrays.



Other Mental Health Wellness Pages

This worry tree by @sparklymalarkey is unlike any layout I have seen previously. I love it for someone who might struggle with anxiety or someone who worries too much (aka me). I would love to learn more about the process of creating it!

Mindfulness is such a beautiful and useful idea and practice. Having a layout that helps you to be more mindful is an awesome idea! This page was made by @the.petite.planner and is so creative yet simple!

It is pretty common for people to incorporate quotes and motivational words into their bullet journal. I personally LOVE this concept. I personally have created pages to list positive and inspirational quotes. This page by Productive and Pretty is just like that, beautiful!

Similar to a gratitude list or a list of quotes, a list of items which make you happy is a fantastic idea for someone struggling with depression or any level of sadness. This one by @PassionPlanner is so beautiful.

https://littlecoffeefox.com/love-yourself-first-bullet-journal-self-care-spreads/

Here is a list of needs by Little Coffee Fox. I love this idea because it is so easy to forget to take care of our own needs!

Bullet Journal Layouts to Help Manage Your Mental Health

There are so many benefits of mindfulness and meditation tracking or listing out your meditation topics or experiences are great for your mental health. I love this idea by @bujo.casio.

These mental health pages are not for everyone, but for some people, it is a game changer. Want to check out more bullet journal layouts, check out my Instagram! Let me know what you are thinking in the comments below!

Night Sky July 2018 Bullet Journal Plan-With-Me

This month’s bullet journal layout is far different than my layouts usually are. Normally I keep my bullet journal fairly minimal and simple, I keep color and art to a minimum; however, this month Life of Colour sent me their watercolor brush pens to try out, and I just had to create my July pages around the idea of watercolor. This post may contain affiliate links.

Theme | Watercolor Abstract Night Sky

If you follow me on Instagram, then you are well aware of my love for watercolor and how often I try to incorporate it. That being said, when Life of Colour contacted me about trying out their pens and becoming an ambassador, I simply HAD to say yes. After messing around with the pens and creating their ‘pen test” page (see below), I can safely say that these watercolor pens are amazing!

I messed around with the pens for a few days, then inspiration hit! First, I needed a new theme for July but had been too busy to give it any thought. I have always loved seeing super artistic bullet journaling Instagrams who create night sky art that is phenomenal. While I could never do something so beautiful with any kind of pen, I thought that I could embrace my imperfect art style and create something sort of abstract—a night sky was the perfect fit! Thus, I created my night sky themed July bullet journaling layouts.

 

Layouts

I chose the night sky theme. However, you really only see that at play on the title page. The title page is covered completely using the blue and gray watercolor pens speckled with “stars” using the yellow pen. I blended out the starts using the water blending pen that came with my Life of Colour pen set I also used the yellow pens in the center of “July” and then outlined it using a black Tombow Dual Brush Pen. The goal of this layout was to be messy and abstract, I did not want perfection because the imperfections are my favorite part of watercolor.

After I created the title page, I focused on my monthly page. I wanted to switch things up even more while I was being uncharacteristically artistic. I put the calendar on the right side of the page and put my goals on the left. This month I felt there to be no need in taking up space with labeling the month since I had a hello July page. I filled the background of these layouts with the yellow watercolor.

I kept the weekly layouts incredibly similar to normal. The main difference was filling the top with the yellow watercolor. Additionally, I used the same blue and black watercolor night sky method on the days of the week. I was so inspired by this theme that I ordered some night sky washi tape to add to my weekly layouts. This month may easily be one of my favorite layouts so far this year!

Brain Dump Layout Inspiration for Bullet Journals

Do you ever have a ton of random thoughts that you just need to get out? The brain or mind dump layouts are exactly what you need! Have you ever used a dump layout in your bullet journal? In this article, I will explain what a brain dump page is, how to get started, and will show you some beautiful examples! This post may contain affiliate links

What Is a Brain Dump Layout

For those of you who do not use or do not know what a brain dump page is, it is exactly what it sounds. A brain dump page is used to dump a bunch of random ideas running around in your mind down onto paper. This page helps to remove mental chaos onto the page. These pages can be organized or random, and any design can be used.

This layout is meant to alleviate a cluttered mind and to help reorganize information. To do this, it is often helpful to write down all of your thoughts and then organize them into their proper place afterward. Sometimes thoughts become impossible to manage without visualizing them.

Customizable Hand-Drawn Bullet Journals

[etsy-shop shop_name=”JihiElephant” section_id=”23060710″]

How to Start a Mind Dump Page

Starting a brain dump page is simple. While, like any bullet journal layout, you have the option to add detail and thoroughly plan out your pages, for this one you do not have to. The easiest way to do a dump page is to throw a title at the top of the page and start scribbling down your notes.

My favorite way to organize a brain dump page as I go is to use a new color for each new thought. I have also seen layouts where a key is created for it, and a different symbol is used to identify different types of thoughts (i.e., stuff to look up, stuff to remember, stuff to do, etc.).

Another way to do a mind dump is like a mind map. If you never learned about mind mapping is works like a tree, you mark a main thought in the center then branch other thoughts off of the main thought.



Inspiration Gallery

Now that you understand the mind dump layout a little more, here is a bunch of brain dump inspiration from various bullet journalers.
