Benefits of Bullet Journals

  • It frees up mental space so you can think more clearly and concentrate better.
  • Better retention. Writing by hand engages multiple senses  (visual, kinesthetic, and tactical ) which helps commit tasks to memory. It also signals to your brain that your goals are important, making you more likely to follow through.
  • Psychologically speaking, bullet journaling is more powerful than other paper-planning methods because it’s also a life record and a place for reflection.
