It’s time for the February installment of my bullet journal setup. I realize that I’ve posted three of these this month, but in the future there will be one journaling post a month.

This month I chose a feather and wind theme. I used markers to design the look this month, and found a set of three colors that worked well with the theme. In later pages I added touches of nests, which helped the weekly spreads from looking repetitive.

Cover Page

I drew a page of feathers swirling in the wind, and a simple page with a mini-calendar of the month. I realized that I didn’t need as extensive of a mini future log as I had the previous month, so I only used a mini calendar of February here.

February Calendar

I like having a larger calendar of the month and a space for major tasks/projects, so I kept it again this month. The illustrations are simpler, and I like the more minimal look.

Monthly Overview

I loved this page for January so I made it again this month. In the future it will be on the back of the very last page of weekly spreads, partly because I’m trying to minimize the number of pages I need to use.

Trackers

You’ll noticed I drastically changed my tracking system. I really liked being able to do a simple check to track my tasks, and this format will allow me to review the habits at the end of the day and check off what I did. It also leaves room for me to add habits to track (that’s what I needed in January) and the last two columns are for tracking my sleep.

I did not make a mood, symptom, or meal tracker. The mood tracker wasn’t very useful, and the symptom/meal tracker I am hoping I won’t need very soon, though I will probably track it in it’s own notebook if the need for it stretches into February.

Spread Notes

At least right now I need a place to make notes about the spread, and I have a whole half a page with no purpose. I’ve figured out a way to reduce my monthly spreads by two pages in the future.

Blog Notes

I’ve made it a point to blog regularly (I have a clearer vision for this space now) and I needed a page to brainstorm. I’ve already started using this page to write post ideas and main points for articles I can write.

Brainstorm Pages

I forgot to take pictures of these, but they are basically blank pages with a blue border. They work perfectly for any ideas or planning I might have.

I love my weekly spreads. They are my favorite parts about bullet journaling. Each week has a unique theme, though you can see how I used the same concepts and basic layouts as the templates.

The only odd element is that I added the calendar for March in some of the empty space for the first weekly spread. I did this so I would have a reference for the following month without having to flip all the way back to the front of the journal.

And that is my February bullet journal setup. What are your thoughts?
