Self-care is very close to my heart.

As a bipolar sufferer and a parent of a child with mental health issues, I am always trying to find ways to manage. Self-care Bullet journaling for both myself and my daughter has gave us better awareness of our mental health and how we can help ourselves to deal with it. I have a few collections in my bullet journal that are musts for us and may help you as well. I use some images from other sites either as examples of how else to do something or because I have private information in my example that I don’t want to publicise.

Mood Trackers

The first page that is vital is a mood tracker. This allows us to see patterns in our moods and sometimes even predict how we may be going to feel in the future. There are so many styles of trackers it is totally up to your imagination. The one below is my August tracker. You can see day 3 is where i started going down because I had missed a set of meds the day before. You don’t need to stop at just a mood tracker, track anything that you think contributes to your wellness.

This next tracker is from @marthasjournal and is another pretty way of tracking your mood.

This is a pretty way of using a habit tracker from The Petite Planner

Alongside my mood tracker I keep a section of my daily log page for tracking my pills with a pill tracker sticker from Stella Beau Sticker Co. Stella Beau Sticker Co has an amazing array of stickers and sticker kits. I use a lot of her words with icons, trackers, decorative and functional stickers. I just can’t get enough of them.

Hygge Habits

The next self-care collection that is vital to me is what I call “My hygge habits”. Hygge (pronounce Hue-guh) is a Danish concept and loosely translates to a feeling of comfort or coziness. So I refer to this page when I am feeling bad or down. It is a reference to remind what I can do to make myself feel better.

Anxiety flowchart

A collection I have created recently is my Anxiety collection. It’s a flow chart for me to be able to work through my anxiety. When I am feeling anxious or worried I can flip to this chart and work through it with the aid of a brain dump page for writing through my thoughts.

Gratitude log

A collection that I think is vital for self care or mental health is a gratitude log.I find that writing in a gratitude log every day helps me put my day in perspective. It helps you refocus on what is making you happy currently instead of what is going to make you feel happy. It helps you stop the mindset “I’ll be happy when this happens”.

A goals page or collection

This can be very helpful to get you back on track when you are down. Its a good idea to have this in your bullet journal when you get a new one started. Or when you are down set one up so you have something to focus on to get you back where you want to be. Your goals need to be smart goals to be effective. Smart is Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely. I know that I am more likely to realise goals if they are all of those things. You also really need to write on your goals page, why you want to achieve them. I start with long term goals and then break them down into more manageable shorter term goals.

See my posts about goal setting “Goal Setting with your Bullet Journal” and “Setting goals using a master plan

These are the 5 main self-care collections that I have in my bullet journal. I hope that they give you some ideas to work with in your bujo. Email me pictures of your self-care collections as I am always interested in seeing what others are doing in their bullet journal. I will be starting a blog page showcasing others bullet journal pages, so please let me know if you are ok with this. My email is [email protected] .
