My 2019 bullet journal setup

In 2018 I started my first bullet journal. Full of enthusiasm, I started planning my weeks and months. I loved the structure it brought to my life. And I used it every single day. Then June the 1st came around and I realised I hadn't set up the monthly and weekly pages in time. I told myself that I would catch up later, but later never came. So I abandoned my bullet journal altogether for the rest of the year. To avoid the same mistake next year, I decided to complete my bullet journal setup before the start of 2019. That way, I can enjoy using the journal throughout 2019 without worrying about setting up any pages. Let me walk you through my setup!

Not time that is used for more productivity. But time to do absolutely nothing.

The connection between skin and stress explained

I have always had oily skin. As a teenager, I wasn’t happy about the shiny face I had, but with proper skincare, I managed to keep it under control. It wasn’t until my skin became ultra-dry a few years ago that I realised what a blessing in disguise oily skin can be. Oils keep the skin moisturised and youthful, which can prevent fine lines and wrinkles. So, if you are naturally blessed with oily skin, think of the positives here. It might be a little annoying now, but you will surely be glad for it in old age.
