10 pages that set the bullet journal apart from your normal diary

In a year that felt like the stability in the world continuously unraveled, there was one very orderly system that blossomed - the bullet journal. 

What started as an diary organisation method used by a designer in New York, has evolved into a multilayered note-taking system that has sparked blogs, dozens of Instagram hashtags (#bujo, #bulletjournal and #bulletjournallove to name three) and a return of coloured gel pens.

It has become a bespoke system of charts, calendars and tables that fans claim help alleviate stress, reduce anxiety and trigger inspiration. For bullet journal devotees, it’s a strategic hard copy of every little note and thought that’s stored somewhere in their brain. Let’s just say it’s very different to your usual new year diary update.  

From ‘emotion trackers’ to ‘book shelves’ we look at the ten best and most useful pages to emerge from the cult trend.
