Journal producer Henna, from Aarins Handmade  told us that there is a definite increase in people starting bullet journals.


She said: “I think a bullet journal is important and getting increasingly popular because people have a busy lifestyle.”


“Everyone likes to multi-task and sorting out your tasks for the day and week is good as you will end up achieving most goals that you set.”


Henna says that bullet journaling works better for people that ‘like to write down details about business plans and to-do lists’ instead of those who ‘prefer phones for making lists’.

She added: “The best part of keeping a bullet journal is you get to decorate it and write things in it the way you like!!’
