One of the main reasons I love bullet journaling, other than increasing productivity, is with bullet journaling, it helps in unplugging, getting off to yourself, and reflecting with simple pen and paper.
Creative Bullet Journal Ideas
With only a simple pen, a piece of paper, and your brain, you can journal a list of ideas down, track them, and smash those goals in there. But, one thing I realise with bullet journaling is that it is easy to get overwhelmed with ideas or run out of ideas to write.

Weight And Measurements
You can log your bra measurements or jean sizes all on one page or, if you are working out to lose weight, this would be an awesome and ideal place to track all of your body changes and measurements.

Tracking your moods on how you are feeling overall in a day, could help improve your moods to be better. That way it might improve your social life as well as have more peace at work.
Have a page where you can track your moods make sure you fill on daily bases. And see how they are acting figure out triggered by something if so work on it and track for improvements. or what made your moods better then go for it again
In my post about 5 productive things you must do before going to bed, one of the ideas I have discussed is a daily reflection of how your day was.
Journaling it could help keep track of the kind of life you live and this would help you know to improve your day normally.

You could also log your special memories and moments for the month in the bullet journal. You never know human being forget a lot and maybe a memory like this could one day make you smile when you come across it.

I can’t even emphasise on how important I found this to be. Tracking down your periods is when you take notes on when your period started and end, How many days did they last how heavy were they? this time did you experience crumps pains?
Tracking your periods is important this way one if you something irregular like heavy bleeding than normal this could be a result of some foods or drinks you ate during your periods. Yes, some foods are not period friendly.
And if you had pain last time what method worked? Do you want to reuse it and find a different one until you know what works? Have a page in your journal that you can track how your periods behave.
