One of the easiest ways to begin and sustain the minimalist lifestyle is to begin and sustain an organized lifestyle. Bullet journaling has quickly become the epitome of the organized aesthetic, and jumpstarted my journey to a minimalist life.
Nearing the end of 2016, when I first started considering minimalism, I happened to search the hashtags, #minimalism and #minimalist, and came across the Passion Planner .
The leather bound planner is more than a place to keep your appointments. It provides a space for creativity where you can map out your short-term and long-term goals, and help keep you focused on any task- like living a simpler life.
Traditional bullet journaling begins with a blank journal (plain, grid, or lined paged) and a pen. You create your own journal by drawing in the planner, which gives you creative liberties in crafting a structure to best fit your (minimalist) lifestyle. The passion planner is the bullet journal for beginners. It provides a structure, but enough space and blank pages to allow you to customize.
If you lead an organized life, it will be easier to focus on keeping your lifestyle simple. There are even journals and journal designs dedicated to the minimalist lifestyle specifically!
Tiny Ray of Sunshine is a journal fashioned after traditional bullet journaling. Kim, the mind behind Tiny Ray of Sunshine, has a special place for minimalism, providing tips for styling your journal after the minimalist lifestyle.
