At the start of this month, I did something I normally don’t do: I drew all the weekly spreads for the month. I wanted to test out how productive I am if I just do all of the layouts in one go. When I make my monthly spreads, I have to set out a large amount of time anyway—and if a certain weekly layout design has worked, why not do it for more than one week?
Each layout has the same structure: 7 days, a sleep tracker, and 2 blank boxes. My sleep tracker also has the added function of being a good spot for me to note the time I take my medication, so I don’t forget and so I can see how it affects my sleep.
I don’t think I’ll be using the blank modules/boxes the same way each week. The first week, I had a space for notes and my meal plan and meal log. The notes section looks really messy, and I didn’t have enough space for all my meal planning. This second week, I’m keeping the notes section, and I’m adding a habit tracker again (yay~!). Another week, I might include my goals, too, but this week doesn’t.
The design will change each week depending on the washi tape and colours I use to decorate everything. I recently bought some lovely, soft, watercolour aesthetic washi tape set, and the first week featured some of the rolls. I haven’t decorated for this second week (or any of the future weeks). I want to decorate through the week, just go with the flow.
I’ll admit, I was very relieved this weekend that I didn’t have to sit and copy the last week’s layout, or come up with a new spread. I dove right into planning out my Monday and writing in other notes for the rest of the week. Based off just this first week and my reaction to the second week? I’ll probably do this again for August!
