Daily pages (or rapid logging) – the bread and butter of my bullet journal

Whilst I have now had a few posts about bullet journaling. I haven’t actually mentioned one of the most integral parts – the daily logs (or pages). For me, these are not only the most helpful part of my bullet journal, but they also take up the bulk of it. Again, if you haven’t checked out the creator’s (Ryder Carrol) video on the bullet journal, I urge you to do so. You can watch it here, also if you want to know more about bullet journalling check out my blog post on the basics.

So, what are daily pages, and how do I use them? Daily pages are basically whatever you want them to be, they are there for planning, journaling, recording, tracking – anything you want. For me, they are mainly planning and to do lists, with the occasional bit of journaling added in there (especially when I’m away or on holiday!) Other people use them primarily to journal, or to track things like water intake, moods, the weather, and a whole host of other things.  Continue reading “Daily pages (or rapid logging) – the bread and butter of my bullet journal”

My thoughts on CBT (I)

I started this post, and it was intended to just be one post, but as I wrote, I realised that it was going to be a little endless if I did that, so instead I thought I would make it a series. I intend to get this series out in the not too distant future, in the next couple of months as an absolute maximum! But without further ado, let us drive right in.

I mentioned very briefly in my last post that I had recently finished CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy). I thought that this would be a good opportunity to talk a little about the things I did with my therapist, and the things that I found most useful. Obviously I wont be sharing *too* many personal details because well, they are super personal, but I will share some examples, and helpfully lots of the worksheets my therapists use are available online, so I can share those with you too!

This is obviously not meant to replace any therapy in any way, or to be used remotely for therapy, but it may have little tricks or tips that might help some people. Or you might just find it interesting to know how I found therapy and what I found helpful. Continue reading “My thoughts on CBT (I)”

February plan with me

Welcome to the (slightly) late February plan with me. I was hoping to have this out before today, but as I predicted I might, my February set up was only finished yesterday – so what can you do! Here’s to getting March’s out before the beginning of March… Normally I would try and start these posts with a very brief review of the pages I used last month, however because my January one was so late, it had some of the reviews in it, but watch out for next months, when you’ll see how these pages went for me! So anyhow, without further ado:

My hello February page. So, this was not how I envisioned this page, well, it sort of is, but it was supposed to be without the washi. But guess what – I went wrong! The first time I wrote February I hated it, I missed part of the U and they Y, it was too bunched together and not central in the page. The welcome was also off centre; basically, it upset me when I looked at it. Thus, in true Kayleigh style, I found a way of loving it again. I covered the original February with two strips of washi and slightly curved the edges. I chose this washi because you can’t see through it, and it kind of fitted my colour scheme. I put an arrow next to the Welcome and rewrote February below. And behold, a page I can feel proud of: Continue reading “February plan with me”
