BUJO is a free, open-source bulletjournaltips.online notebook that lets you easily organize your life in a way that works for you. There are lots of reasons you might want to start the practice of journaling, but the biggest one is that it’s an easy way to make your life more organized and productive. In this article, we’ll take you through the basics of a bullet journal and show you how to use it to design your own mood tracker.

You know the feeling: you’re in the middle of an important meeting when suddenly you get a stomachache. Or you’re driving home from work when a song comes on the radio that reminds you of a high school girlfriend. Or you’re doing research for an article when a loved one calls to tell you they need help. All of these things happen to the best of us at one time or another, but if you’re a big believer in the power of mood tracking, you’re probably wondering if there’s a way to easily make sure you remember to record them.


Include a Mood Tracker


Maintaining a mood tracker is a great way to keep track of how your moods and emotions affect your daily life—and your overall well-being. It’s also a great way to record information that you may have otherwise forgotten. You’ll be able to keep track of your moods and emotions on a daily basis and see how they interact with your daily routine.


Include a Productivity Log


How many to-do lists have you started and abandoned? How many productivity apps have you downloaded, only to forget to use them? How many times have you decided to get to work early and then found yourself wasting time on social media, or any other number of distractions? It’s time to stop working against yourself; time to stop making your life harder than it needs to be.


Include a Food Journal

The biggest problem with keeping a food journal is finding the willpower to sit down and do it. A better approach is to keep a journal as a part of a daily routine. For example, you can keep it with your toothbrush or in another place you visit every day. The time it takes to write down what you eat will add up to a whole lot less than the time it takes to actually eat.


Include an Exercise Journal


Is it possible to increase productivity without changing your lifestyle? That will be the topic of several blog posts to come. In this post, I will focus on the single most important component: Exercise.    I have found that people who exercise regularly are not only healthier, but many are more productive and effective in their jobs.


Include a Sleep Log


A good sleep routine is crucial to staying productive throughout the day. In fact, a study by the National Sleep Foundation found that those who sleep between 7 and 8 hours a night are typically more productive. To keep the sleep log, simply write down the time your head hits the pillow each night and the time you wake up.
