Keeping a Bullet Journal During Self Isolation

During this worldwide pandemic, we’ve all been spending a lot of time at home. I’m one of the lucky ones who is able to work from home, so from 7:30-4:30 I’m typing away in my kitchen but then the rest of the time I’m like, what should I do now?

As an introvert, I have plenty of quiet time activities I like to partake in, so finding something to occupy my time is so not a problem. There are plenty of books to be read and words to be written (It is Camp NaNoWriMo after all).

But One Thing That Is Helping Me Stay Sane During This Time Is My Bullet Journal.

I posted a video recently about some of the pages in my bullet journal that I’m using to help me stay organized during this time.


To see some examples, check out the video! But if you don’t have time, here are a couple of my pages that are helping me stay organized right now.

Grocery Inventory & Shopping Lists

At the very beginning of all this, I stocked up my pantry pretty well with dry and canned goods so that I only have to go to the grocery store for the necessities. I keep a page in my bullet journal to keep track of what foods I already have so that I don’t waste anything. I also keep a shopping list of things that I need (like almond milk and fresh produce) so that I can zip in and out of the store as quickly as possible.

Reading & Watching Lists

Since I have plenty of time to partake in pop culture right now, I have a TO BE READ list and a TO WATCH list that is divided up into 3 categories: Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime. What can I say? I want to optimize my media intake. Haha.

Exercise Lists

I have a small spread to keep track of the exercising that I do. I’ve been watching my weight for a while now and I want to make sure that I keep up with my physical activity. I also wear a Fitbit (This is the one I have, although I bought a new strap for it) so I’m trying to make sure that I hit my 10k steps every day.

I’ve also been doing a bit of art journaling., making collages and things. It just helps to keep me calm.

That’s all that I have for today. Thanks for stopping by my blog & I hope that you are all staying safe during this time! 

Until next time,
Marian
