6 Journaling Styles To Adopt To Inspire Yourself To Be Organized

Writers: Sheetal Tadiparty and Oneeka Kohli

As someone who keeps up with a bullet journal on a daily basis, I can tell you that journaling is definitely not easy. However, with practice, you will eventually be able to practice with multiple styles and see which one suits you best. Here are 6 of my favorite journaling techniques that could potentially be the ones for you!

Bullet Journal

The classic bullet journal had to be on here. Essentially, the bullet journal is perfect if you are the type of aesthetic person who loves making lists or tries to keep your schedule organized. You can practically use bullet journals for anything- mood trackers, homework assignments, grocery lists, birthdays... Color coding is a major aspect of bullet journaling, so if you're into calligraphy, this is the type for you.

Food Journal

As you can guess, this one's for the cooks. Food journals are perfect for when you find the perfect recipe and want to document it somewhere. This is perfect for cookoholics as you may not like all of the recipes that come in traditional books and you can organize your food journal however you please. Not only can you store recipes in these, but you can also track your daily food consumption and calorie intake.

Art Journal

Hello, artists! If you are an artist, or even an aspiring artist, an art journal is practically essential to keep. Here you can store any pieces, and you can even practice pieces before transferring them to the real canvas or drawing papers.

Writing Journal

For aspiring writers, the writing journal is definitely the way to go. Many times, writers experience writers block, and the best way to overcome this is to simply keep writing anything that comes to mind- even a stream of consciousness. Creative writing prompts can even be found online that help push past writing block. There is no better home than a writing journal to hold all your words.

Project Journal

If you love DIY projects, it's a good idea to document your journey through the project. Not only does this help you be more organized, but it's an effective way to make sure you don't miss any important steps along the process. If you come across resources you think you'll need again, a project journal is a perfect place to document them in case you need to refer to it later.

Pocket Journal

Pocket journals are perfect to carry around everywhere when you have tidbits of information you need to jot down. It allows you to remember practically anything you need to take care of. It's perfect for the forgetful people and it's easy to carry around whenever you need to access it. These aren't necessarily aesthetic but they are helpful time to time.

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
