132 Eye-Opening Bullet Journal Layouts
On this blog, I have discussed journaling quite a bit. But I have never shown how cool some bullet journal layouts can be.
I have talked about how important journaling can be to both mental health and productivity. How it can make you smarter, healthier, happier and more mindful.
I gave details on how to start journaling and make it a habit that lasts.
I even wrote a book called Effortless Journaling: How to Start a Journal, Make It a Habit, and Find Endless Writing Topics designed start journaling and make it a habit that lasts.
But…. when it came to bullet journaling, specifically, all I have written is a fairly basic article describing, “what is bullet journaling”.
While that article might be great if you have never heard of the concept of bullet journaling before, it does not give any great ideas to anyone who is looking to improve their journaling efforts with some cool bullet journal page ideas.
With this post I mean to change that. On this page I will show some of the best bullet journal layouts. It will give you some bullet journal page ideas that you can take to your own journaling efforts and improve the look of your bullet journal weekly spreads.
I will also link to a lot of great sites where you can learn a lot more details on bullet journaling specifically.
It is my opinion that bullet journaling is an art form. While the basic idea is simple and quite efficient as a method of keeping track of many cool ideas, that is just the beginning
Many people have truly elevated the idea of bullet journal layouts into an art-form.
I am no artist. While I appreciate the effort many have put into making bullet journals their own thing, when I try it myself, the results are less than spectacular. So I will just share with you what I think are the best bullet journal layouts from others.
(Note: As with all art there is no “best” on this list. The numbering of this list is completely arbitrary. I would be interested to learn YOUR favorite bullet journal layout in the comments section at the end of this post.)
Habit Tracker Bullet Journal Ideas
As you might imagine, being a blog about changing your habits, I started with a collection of habit trackers.
I love these all four of these habit tracker journal layouts. I love the way rachelbujo makes her habit tracker into an artistic masterpiece with the lemon art and the lemon colored “moods” of the week.
I enjoyed the way icecreamioplans broke her bullet journal into three sections, for morning, workday and evening. Such a great idea.
My favorites however are the two minimalist designs. Simple monthly tracking of multiple tasks that looks incredible.
If you want to change your habits, unless you are an artist, I recommend keeping it simple.
Complicated designs could make you less likely to stick to the habit and less likely to diligently keep track of your progress.
Health Tracker Bullet Journal Ideas
Health and fitness tracking is another great reason to keep a bullet journal, and the four choices above are some great looking examples of how good you can make these bullet journal layouts look.
I like the way that these trackers above keep track of so many important aspects of good health.
- Proper hydration
- Daily activity
- Daily Exercise
- Avoiding sugars
- Taking vitamins
- Getting good sleep
- Panic attacks
- Step tracking
What a great mix of “small” things to track and major life improvements. They all lead to a better (and healthier) life.
Bullet Journal Layouts with Stickers
The three bullet journal layouts above are all from eyedeeekae on Instagram. These are excellent examples of what can be done with a bit of creativity, some stickers and a fairly simple monthly calendar.
If you want to try your hand at this type of journaling, here are some places you can check out:
- Stickers from Saucystickerco on Etsy
- Stickers from Atomic Print Shop on Etsy
- Stickers from Amazon (make an affiliate link for this page)
- Planner used: Erin Condron planner Minimalist Bullet Journal Weekly Spreads
As I mentioned earlier, I have a fondness for minimalist design in bullet journal weekly layouts. I love the clean lines and think there are few enough “frills” that these bullet journal layouts would not only be great looking but also practical. You don’t have to spend all day creating fantastic artwork to make these look great. Just keep it neat and simple.
Simplicity has an elegance of its own.
Epic Art Bullet Journal Layouts
The three bullet journal layout ideas in this section are certainly far beyond my artistic abilities to ever duplicate - but they look great.
They transform a few fairly simple lists into a work of art that is truly unique.
I specifically love the packing checklist. I keep a packing checklist of my own and I have found it to be invaluable. This pick mixes a highly practical and useful list with some great looking design and art, making this bullet journal idea very special.
17 Bullet Journal Examples
So far I have given you 17 very different examples of epic bullet journal layouts you can use for your own bullet journaling efforts.
Bullet journaling can be simple and minimalist or it can be quite complex and artistic.
It is all what you make of it.
Being a practical guy, I have to remind you that the purpose of bullet journaling should be keeping track of the things you need to keep track of, not necessarily creating a work of art. It is easy to get caught up in the idea you need to make a fancy bullet journal when you see some of these stunning examples of bullet journals. But fancy journals are not needed.
In the section below I will give you a pretty massive list of bullet journal ideas you can use to make many different lists and ideas for your own personal bullet journaling. Use the above examples as ways you can make the ideas below sand out - or just use the ideas to make simple lists.
Consider it a bullet journal cheat sheet for ideas.
