Dot it up and plan it out

Journaling has always been a perfect coping mechanism for many during their tough & trying times. People journal for many reasons and adapt different forms of journaling which can vary from Art Journaling, Daily Journaling, Gratitude Journaling, Bullet Journaling and so many more!

Before Dot Grid Journals emerged on the market, journals typically came with regular ruled school paper or harsh grid lines or grid pages that connected forming small boxes.

Neither option truly allowed you the freedom to create your own aesthetic inside the journal. Well, Dot Grid Journals are here to our rescue now!

Here are four quick tips to get you started on your dot journaling journey

Tip #1: Let it be your own

One of the best things about Dot Grid Journaling is you can do whatever you want and it is sure to look pretty. Whether you are someone who loves checking off random to-do’s or a creative who loves art, stickers and colour coding, it can work for anyone. Create your own style and make it your personal favourite with a piece of your creative mind and a heart full of passion. 

Tip #2: Create To-Do Lists

When you have so many tasks to do, at times you tend to forget a few. Maintaining a to-do list always helps. The satisfaction you get when checking off your task isn’t something you feel when you tick it off on your phones. 

Draw your own checkboxes by connecting the dots on the paper.

What’s even better? Doodle in between and make your tasks look more fun. 

Tip #3: Drawing and Doodling

Calligraphy, Random art, drawings and doodling, the options are endless! For all those who love art journaling, this journal is just the thing you need. Doodling and writing things you feel is a perfect stress buster and that’s what a dot grid journal helps you with. Who wants heavy blue lines in between their drawings when we have Dot Grid Journals?


Tip #4: Brainstorm Ideas

Dotted paper gives you the freedom to get your thoughts down on paper in whatever way makes sense. Use the dots to create flow-charts to help you map out business plans or projects. Write sideways and upside down, or use thought bubbles and boxes to separate themes and ideas from each other. The page is whatever you make it.
