One of the things I started doing in my 2022 bullet journal was creating dashboards, both monthly and weekly! I’ve been loving having dashboards to keep track of things throughout the week.
For my very first weekly dashboard, I used just one page, with a meals tracker, weather tracker, intentions section, next week note module, a cleaning task list, and my habit tracker.
The goal was to take some of my most used modules out of my weekly spread (like habits, or cleaning tasks) and into a separate spread that I could flip to, but wouldn’t take up as much space in my weeklies. I wanted to be able to have a little more creative freedom and white space in my weekly spreads and the habits and bar graphs were taking up so much space.
I loved having a separate page to reference for all of these info blocks! I was surprised that I actually used it, as I was worried about flipping back and forth. But it was fun to reflect on what the weather was like and what I ate. And I loved having more space in my weekly spreads!
I barely used the “next week” task list section. While I liked the intentions section in this dashboard, it quickly got old (maybe I need a monthly intention…)
I also wasn’t a huge fan of “wasting” the lefthand side of this spread. I didn’t really need two pages, and part of me liked the white space/breathing room in the spread as I flipped through, but it felt like a bit of a waste. I remedied this in the next weekly dashboard spread. Look out for that post soon!
