Before you start setting up your February bullet journal, I’d like only to mention that my favorite bullet journal supplies are still the same.
Although I’m currently playing with digital bullet journaling, I always recommend these four bujo products.
February Bullet Journal Theme Ideas
Undoubtedly, February is the month when we celebrate love.
With this in mind, you may want to decorate your notebook with cute doodles, pink washi tape, and other Valentine’s Day-themed drawings.
As you can see, the February bullet journal is all about a pink color palette. No matter if you doodle a big, pink heart as Creative By Olivejuice, create a simple heart tree (see Shay’s cover page) or draw a lot of pink and purple hearts like Leni onto the entire notebook. Using pink markers is a genius way to create some kind of a romantic mood, without spending too much time or effort.
On the other hand, you can choose completely different February themes.
For example, Marie designed a cute planner cover with pink candies and lollipops. The next amazing cover page, created by Hannah is more nostalgic with the princess cottagecore aesthetic. Last but not least, Gingerjournals put a cute cupcake onto her cover page and decorate it with muted pink and dotted washi tapes.
Another popular bullet journal themes for February are:
- foil balloons
- love letter
- Valentine’s Day
February Planner Setup 2021
As I mentioned before, this year I decided to explore digital planning.
With this in mind, I created February 2021 digital planner that includes:
- index page
- monthly page
- weekly pages
- daily pages
- habit tracker
- mood tracker
- 4 note pages (lined, dots, grids, blank)
- 2 custom section pages
February Bullet Journal Setup 2020
February Bullet Journal Cover Page
First and foremost, here’s my bullet journal monthly cover.
In this case, because I’m a huge fan of hand lettering, I created a bullet journal monthly cover as a daily lettering practice.
However, it will affect neither good nor bad my productivity.
For February, I chose a quote
Get Glowing. The World Needs Your Magic
Here’re other self-love quotes for the February bullet journal you may want to use in your February bullet journal.
Do Small Thing With Great LoveMother Theresa
Keep Taking Time For Yourself Until You’re You AgainLalah Deila
Seek To Be Whole, Not PerfectOprah
If You Have The Ability To Love, Love Yourself FirstCharles Bukowski
It’s Not Your Job To Like Me, It’s MineByron Katie
The next page I created was the February bullet journal goals page.
I divided a page into two columns.
On the left side, I wrote down my reflection on where I am in my life currently. On the right side, I put where I want to be in a month.
Based on my Level 10 Life exercise, this year I strongly focus on my health, self-care, business, and creativity. For that reason, I created four rows for each category.
After reviewing the previous month, having a braindump session, and prioritizing with the Eisenhower matrix, I set February monthly goals and priorities.
February Bullet Journal Monthly Spread
In most cases, the next page I like to set up is a monthly overview in order to have all February’s appointments, events, birthdays gathered in one place.
In this case, I chose a classic monthly layout with thirty-five squares (3×3 cm each).
Generally, I start a week from Monday, so I put all days of the week above the table and highlighted them with a pink color.
Besides, on the left side, I left a space for February’s to-do list and future tasks.
February Habit Tracker & Mood Tracker
On the next page, I created very simple trackers including habit and mood trackers.
Generally, what I like to do, is to sort all habits I want to track by the time of the day.
With this in mind, I wrote down my morning and evening routine with all days of the month and listed habits.
Also, I track my mood and a menstrual cycle together, so I put them below a list of daily habits.
Moreover, I created a motivational quote, but it’s completely optional.
February Bullet Journal Budgeting Spread
The next page is all about budgeting. If you’re wondering how I use it, here’s a blog post on how to master your finances with a bullet journal budget layouts.
In general, I wrote down all of the income sources, savings, irregular spending, fixed expenses, and then I budgeted the rest for essential and optional costs.
Bujo Weekly Spread
Again, referring to my bullet journal page with goals and priorities, I broke them down into weekly goals. Based on them, I created a weekly schedule just to have an overall view of what’s going to happen.
Because of that, I left blank spaces for a weekly overview, this week’s to-do list, reminders, and tasks for next week.
Also, I put a mini-calendar in the left corner.
Weekly Meal Planner
Because food expenses are the most expensive things within a monthly budget, planning all meals definitely helps get it under control. So if you want to learn more, check out this bullet journal meal planning blog post.
This month I created a simple table with seven columns (for seven days) and four rows (for four meals). Below I left some space for meal prep activities.
Another way to control your expenses is by creating an expense tracker.
I divided a page into two rows- the first one designated for essential expenses, the second one for optional ones.
Daily Logs with Mini-Goals, Affirmations, and Gratitude Prompts
First and foremost, recently I’ve started working on my daily routine by creating daily logs.
Unquestionably, it was a turning point in my productivity.
So this is how I created the February bullet journal daily log.
Firstly, I drew ten squares (1x1cm) as my Pomodoro tracker.
Just in case you’re not familiar with what the Pomodoro technique is, basically it’s a time management method while you’re working in 25-5 minutes intervals (25 minute work, 5 minute break).
In order to stay even more accountable, I like to put down specific hours and assigned tasks.
Moreover, I left some empty space for daily affirmation, small goals for today, day review, and daily gratitude.
In general, it’s better to write your daily affirmations and daily gratitude prompts ahead.
Not only it allows you to start your day with a positive mindset right away, but also it helps finish your day peacefully with ease.
For example, my daily affirmations for the first week of February are:
- I am patient
- I love the person I am becoming
- Progress is better than perfection
- I am proud of myself
- everything will work out for me
- I am unique
- I choose what I become
Besides, keeping a gratitude log, contrary to appearances, may be challenging.
Obviously, it’s so easy to say that you should write about what you’re grateful for.
However, when you want to write it, it’s hard to come up with something. For that reason, gratitude journal prompts might be so helpful.
With this in mind, here are my February gratitude journal prompts.
February Gratitude Journal Prompts
Today I am grateful for:
- the ability to…
- something I use today
- my favorite treat
- one thing I love about myself
- one thing I love about my job
- my favorite thing when you wake up in the morning
- something funny that made me laugh
You can find more examples here.
Braindump Page With The Eisenhower Matrix
Also, I created a braindump page. Later, I’ll write down all the things I have in my head and sort them by a priority using the Eisenhower matrix.
Weekly Review Page
Undoubtedly, reviewing your week on a regular basis helps you to stay accountable and track your progress toward goals.
February Bullet Journal – Final Thoughts
Definitely, bullet journaling can really help you in many aspects of your life. Also, it doesn’t matter when you start it. So don’t hesitate any longer and set up your February bullet journal spreads.
