Life Skills Classes: Bullet Journaling 101

Does your to-do list stress you out? Are you looking for a better way to manage your day-to-day activities? Learn a new way organize your life with bullet journaling! Designed to be as flexible as you need it to be, the bullet journal system combines the functions of a to-do list, a planner and a diary all in one mindfulness solution. 

Creator of the bullet journal system, Ryder Carroll, says this modular method will help you live a more productive and meaningful life. "When I was young, I was diagnosed with ADD and there weren't a lot of tools or resources available, so I had to design my own," he explains. "Rather than keep notes like other people, I figured out how to organize and sort information the way that my mind works."
