december bullet journal + essentials

 

fotorcreated-1Hello!!!

If you have been following me on Instagram (@hashtaglovebook.alicia) you would have probably seen my latest obsession with bullet journaling. I adore it! Every week whenever I can find five minutes for me to journal, I will seize the chance. There is just something so satisfying and calming about creating a personalised planner and organising your upcoming weeks and months.

I honestly can’t believe it already is December, this year has been a whirlwind of adventures and it has flashed before my eyes. Since it is nearing the end of November, I decided to draw up my monthly bullet journal for December. I filmed a little quick montage of a most of my planning. (I realised I wasn’t recording the last part of it so I don’t have all of the footage 🙂 ) I also am going to show you some of my stationary I use for my bullet journal as well!

Habits and Changes I’ve Made To Kickstart A Good 2017

dhqiwq

Hello! Hello! Hello!

I haven’t talked to you guys in what feels like ages and I am so very sorry! I had exams and the school year was overwhelming filled with back to back activities and I couldn’t find the time to sit down and blog about my life.

Anyway because I have only just gotten back into reading because of a busy few months, I decided to post something a bit more “lifestyle” like. I was thinking about things I have done lately and there are a few things changes and habits I’ve begun to hopefully make me a happier, healthier and more motivated person. I felt like there were just somethings this year that have left me with a lot of negativity and bad vibes. However I want to change that before 2017 years so I can make 2017 the best year. I thought I would just shre these things with you in this post!

What are somethings you do to make you a healthier, happier and more motivated person?

Never in a million years would I have imagined myself spending the time every week to bullet journal but I do not regret starting this habit. I love bullet journal- it is not only calming but gives you a sense of achievement. There is just something about sitting down and planning what is coming up, what you have done in the past week and organising your daily habits and goals. I love how bullet journalling is not just like a diary you can personalise it to suit you and it also is a way to shine your personality. The satisfaction you get from flicking through your journal is indescribable. Hopefully I’ll be able to keep this habit until next year!

I know you must be thinking:How is We Heart It supposed to make you a more motivated person? but hear me out. I love hearting photos that just make me happy. There are so many photos out there on we heart it that leave you with a since of wanderlust, excitement, adventure and pleasure. Keeping the photos you like on a canvas makes it easier for you to look back on them and realise the goals you want in your life. The photos I all heart are things and ideas I want to be able to tick off my bucket list and taking the time to heart these photos every day makes me a more motivated person.

motivational videos


I recently found this youtube channel called Motivation Grid and I am addicted to their videos. Usually I hate cheesy videos and articles but these videos are magic they leave you with this really great sense of determination that makes you feel like you can conquer anything. If I ever feel down or in need for motivation I will watch on of these videos! If you ever find the time to watch a good video you have to check out this youtube channel.

elevate brain training

Elevate brain training is basically this app that enables you to train your brain every day with three fun mini games. I love using this everday because not only does it leave you with a sense of satisfaction you also get to play a bunch of mini games whilst training your brain. I know the science behind daily brain training is controversial but I guess there is no harm in trying it out. Its free and easy to join as well!

There are just some of the little changes and habits I’ve added to my life to make me a more positive and motivated person! What are some good habits you have?
