When it comes to bullet journaling, your imagination is the limit to what you can do. Sometimes however we are bogged down by self-imposed rules about what we think a bullet journal should be or should have, but the truth is that there are no rules and constraints when it comes to bullet journaling. There are so many ways you can use a bullet journal in all aspects of our life - think of it like transferring the multitude of your thoughts from mind to paper. It's up to you to decide on what and how you want to bring these thoughts to life. The best part about bullet journaling is that it is endlessly customisable and be as complex or as simple as you want it to be.
As Ryder Caroll, the inventor of the bullet journal, puts it, "Bullet Journaling is always about function over form. It doesn't matter what your bullet journal looks like. It's about how it makes you feel, and how effective it is in moving you towards the things that matter to you."
Whether you've just started on your bullet journaling journey or are an experienced bujo-er, it certainly doesn't hurt to seek more inspiration. Beyond the standard bullet journal pages such as a day-to-day planner and habit tracker, here are some creative bullet journal page ideas that can help you transform your bullet journal into a kickass one.

Using a fitness tracker in your bullet journal will help you stay committed to your workout routines. Not only that, you'll be increasingly motivated to stick to the habit as filling up each box with colour just gives you that extra satisfaction of a job well done.
6. Remember and record your dreams with a dream log
Dreams are windows to the soul and often reveal to us our subconscious thoughts and patterns of thinking that we may not be aware of. Immediately writing down notes about your dream in your bullet journal after waking up helps you to preserve your memories and identify patterns in your subconscious thoughts and feelings.
