First off, hello. Thank you for coming to my little corner of the blog forums.
My name is Caedy, and among other things I suffer from both depression and anxiety. Both of which have a tendency to make me forget to do things, or leave me with the lack of desire to do things. However, I have found something that allows me to map out and keep a running tab of organization for things like appointments, bills, pay days, events, and things for my book review blog. I realize that there are digital things that can ultimately do this, however, I am also trying to limit my time spent dealing with trying to hunt down apps and things like that. Most of which do not offer customization or take up too much space on my phone or tablet.
That is how I came across the bullet journal system. It is quite literally an analog system for the digital age. It allows for customization of pretty much anything and can do anything the user needs to do.
I do monthly spreads, weekly spreads, keep track of reviews, books that I intend on reading through out the month, a gratitude log as well as so much more. I'll be including pictures throughout this blog, as well as supplies and things that I currently use in mine. Beyond that, this can also be a place where others can share their own spreads, and things of that nature.
The best part of bullet journals is that they are fluid, they can change. If one thing doesn't work for you, but something else does, that's all that matters. You find what works for you, what needs to be tracked, and things of that nature. It has helped greatly with my anxiety as well as pulling me a bit out of various depression slumps because I can do brain dumps and things of that nature.
That's about all I have for right now, I'm sure I'll be adding lots and lots more as time goes on!
