Finding comfort in September with my BuJo

The last few months have been full of change. Some of these changes, like the birth of my daughter, have been truly magical! And others, like the round of layoffs at work and the news of the company closing the majority of the business have been awful. Change, whether for the good or bad, can be stressful.

Even change in a planning routine can add stress. In our ever gnawing need for higher and higher productivity we constantly change our system, our style, our materials, etc to the point where the very thing that is supposed to bring you peace becomes an object of frustration. I dearly love my disc bound notebook from Jane’s Agenda! Don’t get me wrong, it’s amazing! It’s so much more practical than a traditional notebook and it’s perfect for a bullet journal!!

But, there it was. Another source of change. Another new thing in my life full of the unfamiliar. And I just needed to step back and return to something normal, comforting, and familiar. Something I could control. So for September, I switched back to a Leuchtturm. Shock! Awe!

Even though it is loads less functional than a disc bound notebook, I craved the romance of a traditional journal. I still have all of my long term collections in the Jane’s Agenda notebook. And they are likely to stay there and continue to grow. But for daily planning, I’m back to a Leuchtturm.

Wait a minute??? Didn’t I say I would probably never go back?? Yep. Never say never! It’s like that old sweatshirt you swore you would never wear again, but then one day you are feeling so down and out of control that you put it on for comfort.  Yeah, that’s the Leuchtturm for me.

I did switch it up a little, that’s just my way, and went for a straight up grid notebook. I like dot grids, but after using the graph paper in my disc bound book, I realize that I like graph a lot better. I mean a lot!

I’ve also simplified my health tracker a good bit. I don’t track in my dailies any more, just in the monthly spread. This makes it so much easier.

Simplicity is good. And so is familiarity. Sometimes, being able to control such a simple thing as a notebook can make a world of difference.

However, if you are in the market for something new and want to try out a disc bound notebook, Jane is offering 10% off until the end of September with code OHAYOBENTO. They are seriously great notebooks.
