What does journaling mean?
Are you familiar with this feeling? Stress, never ending To Do lists, current world affairs… it’s all just too much for many of us. I’ve been thinking about how we can create a nice daily routine for ourselves. A routine that shows us the positive moments in everyday life, with which we can reflect on happenings and also get some order in our world of thoughts.
For this purpose, I would like to introduce you to the method of “journaling”. Have you heard the term before? It means as much as writing a diary, in other words recording and writing down experiences, thoughts, feelings, but also spontaneous impulses. In my short video, I share more about it with you: Feel free to watch: For this purpose, I would like to introduce you to the method of “journaling”. Have you heard the term before?

Do you have a lot of new ideas, want to organize your To Do ́s more effectively and record this process? The bullet journal is a creative addition to journaling.
A bullet journal is a method of personal organization and an extension to journaling, so to speak. Whether in a personal, educational or professional context, it’s a helpful tool that also lets you be creative. “The bullet journal then accompanies you every step of the way. Again and again, you can see your progress, reflect on current issues and problems along the way, and record solutions. Especially when I have multiple goals and projects, it helps me tremendously to keep track and set priorities. These are all small building blocks that help me to really implement ideas,” says Bujo-expert Carolin, who is also known as “Cayaline” and shares Bullet Journal tips and inspiration on YouTube and Instagram.
Here’s how to get started with your Bujo – 3 tips from Caroline on how you too can get creative with your self-organization easily
First, figure out what you want the journal to help you with.
A Bujo (short for Bullet Journal) as an end in itself or as a “coloring book” will usually end up in the corner at some point, because your motivation is fading. Are you like me and have a thousand pieces of paper with notes, ideas, projects that you would like to collect somewhere organized? Or would you like to get into action and pursue your goals? Do you want to keep track of your personal development? Are you always missing something in printed calendars that you want to implement in your journal?
Start simple: both in terms of content and design.
A beautifully designed journal from someone who has been doing this forever looks intimidating. But rest assured, even that person started somehow once, and it certainly didn’t look like it does today. My first pages were very simple in structure and were just for self-reflection. The rest gradually developed from that – at my own pace.
Develop a routine.
Set times for using it (I recommend once a day) and for designing and planning it (I do this once a week). And even if you don’t stick to this routine once, don’t judge yourself for it. No one is perfect and manages to stick to it all the time. Just pick up the book again the next day and keep going.
