When it comes to highlighters, the first thought that comes to mind would be highlighting our study notes or textbooks with them. But have you ever considered using your highlighters beyond its main purpose? Now’s the time to get out of the box, and start utilizing highlighters to on your bullet journal (especially if you’ve been hoarding them *hint hint*)!

There are plenty of things you can do with highlighters for bullet journaling, and the best part is that you’ll be using them to their fullest potential. Don’t just use your regular black pens while journaling — let your creativity flow and give your bullet journal some life with highlighters! We’re here to enlighten you with a few ways you can decorate and colorize your spreads to make them oh-so-Instagrammable. 

To start off, you can simply make the titles of each section on your bullet journal spread more interesting by adding highlight shades at the background of the titles. You could also try writing the title with a highlighter first, then overlay with a black pen with the same title but in a different style. Prefer a more classic timeless look? Try lettering your title with a highlighter, then add shadows or trace the words to give it more dimension.

If you want to go a little further, draw a ribbon or banner for your title and colour them in with a highlighter before writing the title. Our suggestion is to choose softer colours for titles, so that the titles aren’t overwhelmed by shades that are too harsh. Our swing cool pastel highlighters are perfect for this! You can find them in pretty shades on https://bit.ly/studywithpoint.

Do you use your bullet journal to track your habits or productivity levels? You can use your highlighters to mark down your activities on your tracker and help reach your goals!

To differentiate the progress of each of the activities or tasks on your tracker, remember to colour code them and create a legend at the side to make sure you don’t get confused. Of course, the more colourful it is, the better! It’s also a great way to organize and memorize your activities as you have associated one specific colour with each of them.
