Congratulations

If you've started using your Journal Year Planner, you might be here to get some ideas for how to use the blank pages.

Here's how to start.

 

step one:

Choose what you want

step two:

Create a layout

step three:

Write in a heading

step four:

Index your page

We've got ideas here in all sorts of categories. What you'll choose depends on what you want to use your journal for. Maybe you're looking for organisation inspiration, or maybe you're hoping to fill the pages with free-flowing writing.  Scroll down for our ideas, or imagine your own.

Our Journal is loosely based on the 'Bullet Journal' concept.

Use your best artistic handwriting to create your page heading. Or if that seems too hard, you can find our already-artistic list of the headings on this page right here. Save to your computer and print. Then cut out and paste on your page.

Don't forget this important detail. It helps you find what you're looking for later and saves hours of flipping through your journal.
