As a working mom, you must have a bullet journal. A bullet journal can serve as a self-care journal and help you keep your life organized and in order. There is a possibility that your workload will increase when you are a working mom, which can cause some complications in your family, career, self-care, etc.
You will only feel genuinely in control of your life when you can plan different parts of your life without feeling overwhelmed. Bullet journals will help you do these things and even do much more.
Here are seven reasons you should consider starting a bullet journal as a working mom
Organize Your To-do Lists
You can organize your to-do lists in your bullet journal. You can have different sections of the work you can do simultaneously. For example, you can have an excerpt about your kids’ needs like school supplies, another section for home projects, career, etc. Doing this keeps all your plans in one place, and you can conveniently track them.
It is not enough to write things down; bullet journals can help alleviate stress. It seems enormous when you have written down your to-do list for the day/week. You can write inspirational quotes and things you are grateful for on the same page. This will push you along.
Your Calendar Will Be in a Place
You can keep your monthly or weekly calendar in your bullet journal. Use different colors of pens to separate your kids, career, home, family, etc., schedules. You can get creative and enjoy doing this. Use stencils on specific plans. You can even use stickers for projects that you are sure you will enjoy doing.
Track and Reach Professional and Personal Goals
As a working mom, it is very easy to be immersed in taking care of your family that you forget to care for yourself. A bullet journal can help you to reach and track your goals. All you have to do is open a section and title it “personal goals.” Think about what you want to achieve, including fun stuff, and record them. A bullet journal can also serve as a prayer journal. You can write your prayer points. When you have done any, mark them. This will help you to track your goals.
Substitute For Food Journal
You can create great meal plans with your bullet journal. You can also write down your groceries. You can write the meals you can make easily and hard ones. You can use these lists as a guide when shopping.
Keep a Reading List
Your bullet journal can serve as a reading list for when you have time to read. Whenever you hear an exciting book that you want to read but you don’t have the time yet, your bullet journal cam can serve as your mini-scrapbook.
A Space to Scrapbook
With so much work to be done, you might not have time to scrapbook. If you don’t want to recycle your moments, you can keep them in your bullet journal.
A bullet journal is the perfect self-care journal for working moms. Your life will be much easier if you can organize your workload and work towards your goals. It is also an excellent replacement for a prayer journal. It may take some effort and time to set up, but it is worth it.
