How to set up Bullet Journal - Honest Review of Brainbook 37

As it happens to all of us, life gets very very busy and if you are like me, my go to place to escape all life’s trivialities is my Instagram feed.

(Who is not guilty of that?)

I saw one blogger that I love, post her Bullet Journal. I thought, wow, how can a person be so organised. I wanted to give it a go.

So I have followed thousands of accounts on Instagram ( isn’t that what you just do, right?)

My feed was all about Bullet Journaling, but I was still trying to figure out what it was.

Was it a planner? A to do list? Should it be that pretty?

It had words like future log, index. I had no idea what they meant. 

I started my research, and ended up very very confused with plenty of time wasted and nothing actually done. 

It was until I found the book: “Brainbook: Bullet Journaling to a More Organised Life” on Pinterest that has helped me to set up my journal.

It has explained to me how to tailor it to my needs and to my current goals and habits that I would like to track.

1. Printables could be a little bit more exciting:

I liked that printable came with it. I just thought that with so many possibilities of Bullet Journaling they could be a little bit more creative. They worked well for me at the very start.

2.Doodles would show steps how to draw them:
