“If you are happy and you know it, overthink.
If you are happy and you know it, overthink.
If you are happy and you know it, give your brain a chance to blow it
If you are happy and you know it, overthink”.

—The Minds Journal Editorial

Can you relate to these lines?

We all tend to overthink and replay social interactions in our head. We read too much between the lines, revisit things that happened, and focus on unnecessary details. Constant overthinking often leads to down moments, negative thoughts, panic attacks, depression, and anxiety.

Bullet Journal is a handy tool that helps overcome it all. Journaling acts like meditation; it calms you down. With journaling, you activate your brain, structure your thoughts, and search for solutions, whether consciously or unconsciously.

If you are unfamiliar with bullet journaling, it is a system that helps you organize your day, рlаn fоr the future, track the past, and kеер уоur sanity in the present. It helps you improve by tracking your habits, storing ideas, and structuring your thoughts. Learning methods to improve your mental health with a bullet journal is the focus of this book.

Journaling has been proven to relieve anxiety, yet not many people actively journal (Murnahan, B., 2010). Before writing this book, I interviewed people who experienced issues related to anxiety, depression or found themselves in a bad headspace. When questioned about why they did not keep a bullet journal, they specified three major reasons:

1. They have no clue what a bullet journal is and how it can help.
2.Information is overabundant and unstructured on the Internet. So, they do not know where to start. As a result, they procrastinate and do not start at all.
3.There are a bunch of groups/communities of bullet journal lovers; however, their spreads look so perfect and complicated that it discourages a regular person without considerable artistic talents from starting.

This motivated me to write this guide, as I am looking to resolve these issues and be of help to beginners.

You will find a collection of minimalist spreads that are grouped into five major categories. I included suggestions on which topic matches which category: if you care to track your sleep, is it better to use graphs, lists, or something else? Explained inside is how to set these tools up, ideas on topics to include in your bullet journal, and clarification on what mental issues they solve and how. All you have to do is pick the ones that are relevant to you and implement them.

Jim Rohn’s Law of Diminishing Intent states:
“The longer you wait to do something you should do now, the greater the odds that you will never actually do it.”
