I am SO excited to show you what is new this month! I am completely in love with November – what is your favourite thing to do this month? Comment below to get the conversation going and get yourself into a Fall spirit 🙂
As always, we are kicking a new month off with a brand new doodle page which you can now find in our Community library – go ahead and print it out to use in your own bullet journal or have fun colouring this with your kids! I used my favourite Koi watercolours to make the red squirrel pop out – I must admit that I have never seen one in real life, but it will happen one day! Leuchtturm1917 takes watercolours very well, the paper does not wrinkle very much if you do not go heavy with water and when using acrylic paints, it does not wrinkle at all – but this also depends on how much paint you apply onto the page. I had no issues so far.
Don’t you just LOVE this spread? Autumn is in its full bloom – or should I say fall – and it very much inspired this theme we have going on here. I split the monthly log to keep it at the top of the page – do you like it? The big mushroom is for scheduling monthly tasks and wood logs for people I want to get in touch with, plus projects or any unfinished business that need to be completed this month.
Monthly goals are separated into four categories – Business, Personal, Home, and Happiness which is new area I am going to focus on in November. In each area, there are 5 things you want to complete and focus on throughout the month. If you have not tried this before, maybe start with 2 or 3 things in each area 😉 You can always add more when needed!
November mini monthly calendar is positioned in the middle of the page for scheduling blog posts & YouTube videos. And you have probably noticed another new element here, yes, December mini monthly is here too, along with an empty space for upcoming tasks/events/projects etc.
Let me introduce you to a new Wellness tracker! This is going to be a big helper during the month of November and it will be very helpful in losing weight and keeping track of your overall health. The quote “If you can’t count it, don’t eat it.” is my own (Michaela Siroka) and it basically says, if there are more calories than you can count in your food, do not eat it – it is probably not very healthy or there is too much of it.
I am using a colour coding system for sleep and calorie intake – it’s as simple as writing down the number of hours slept/calories eaten and going over with a specific colour of Tombow dual brush pen that I love dearly and can highly recommend if you would like to add a bit of colour to your pages 🙂
And we have a different kind of mood tracker that you can print out in our Community library – I am curious to see how yours will turn out! Tag me in your Instagram pictures as @betweenthesteps so I can see how beautiful it is! You can also share your recreations in our Community group on Facebook.
Awe moments – find something fantastic and a-m-a-z-i-n-g every day! Have that awe moment, it’s very refreshing and you will feel awesome!
‘Little things’ is a monthly appreciation page or a gratitude log – you can sketch, paint, letter, write, stick a picture on here, whatever your heart desire and you want to remember about November.
This grid is a monthly schedule with number of the week at the top. It can be used as a workout log, meal planner, daily doodle challenge etc. Personally, I am going to use it for a marketing challenge that I created for myself.
On here, you can also find a monthly review – every week is reviewed individually and at the end of month, I come back to this page to reflect on the entire month. See that Stop sign in the right bottom corner? That is for anything that did not work out for you this particular month and you need to stop doing.
Last but not least, weekly layouts! There are 5 weeks in November, lots of work and also lots of fun! This layout is very simple, yet very useful. It consists of daily task boxes, weekly tasks, 3 weekly goals, empty space for you to express your weekly focus/motivation, and a weekly tracker from our Community library.
