Bullet journaling has taken off in the last few years, and for good reason. It’s both a creative outlet and a tracker for goals that are important to you. But there’s a case to be made for it helping enhance your spiritual wellness, too.
When we are overwhelmed or stressed, there is plenty of research that suggests writing it down on paper can help. Even just the act of moving a pen across a page is hypnotic and stress-relieving—the same is true for bullet journaling. When there is too much to do, or not enough to do, it can help with both. Acting as a to-do list or goal tracker, bullet journaling can help give order to the many things you are balancing in your life. Alternatively, if you’re in a rut and can’t seem to do much, bullet journaling can act as motivation to start giving purpose to your time.
As you track your habits and reach your goals, you’re able to uncover the things that are important to you. As you clear out the weeds in your life and can focus on what matters most, that’s when you’re best positioned to connect within and with a higher power. This relationship with yourself and with your spirituality is always there, but it is usually easier to access when you have clarity in your life.
As you fill out the pages of your bullet journal, engaging your creativity along the way, you might see that the simple task of setting and accomplishing goals can give a much-needed structure to your life. Doing so may open you up to more spirituality, creativity and peace in your life. There are many ways to improve your spirituality.
