In the first post of this Coaching Circle your task was to consider what type of Journal you would use for your skincare tracking. The next task is to start to fill in your Journal.
Your skin is changing all the time and so is your routine. Even if you stick to the same products you probably make little adjustments, maybe without even realising it. Bullet Journals are a great tool for building and tracking your routine. This post will examine some of the many different types of information you can add when starting your Journal.
TASK: Choose your Bullet Journal Format.
Should you track your routine in a notebook or online? Most of you will know right away which will work better for you - you're probably already doing it. Some of you may want to combine both. Even if your Bullet Journal is in a notebook you may want to have an online Journal Post as well, for storing pictures, for example, or dates. If you don't have a strong gut feeling for your journal you can always keep your options open and experiment until you are sure that you've got the right format.
What format will work for you? Old School vs. New School
Old School: pen and paper.
New School - electronic tracking: On the SH Facebook Bullet Journal Group, on your phone or other private system.
Once you've decided on the format of your journal you can go ahead and start to fill it in. If you are creating a Bullet Journal for your own personal use (rather than for Mentorship or Coaching) you can add whatever is most helpful to you.
If you are hoping to get feedback from me as part of your participation in this Coaching Circle then please follow my Step-By-Step Journal Set up, starting with your SKINCARE SNAPSHOT.
STEP ONE: The SH Skincare Snapshot Worksheet
The SH Worksheets are formatted to help you take the guesswork out of your Skincare Routine Building and Tracking. They are also my primary Coaching tool. This is your opportunity to document exactly where you are at with your skincare right now. Before you start to list your routine (we will look at this in the next post) you need to consider where you are at in your own journey.

This worksheet prompts you for information in specific categories. If you are receiving Coaching or Mentorship from me this is also how I *refresh* my memory when looking at your specific situation, so it's super helpful if you can follow the suggested format as it makes it much quicker for me and allows me to spend more time on my actual coaching!
