Need some inspiration? Here are 7 different ways to use the MäksēLife Dot-Grid Notebooks:


A dot-grid notebook is the perfect place to start a daily journaling practice. Whether you're answering ClubMäksē journalling prompts of free-writing whatever comes to mind, journalling is a powerful tool that can help you work through roadblocks and procrastination.

Gratitude Practice

You likely already know that we're big fans of gratitude at Makselife (we even have a gratitude heart on each day in your planner to remind you how important it is!)

Start a gratitude practice in your dot-grid notebook by writing down three things you're grateful for each day. This simple practice can help shift your focus to the positive aspects of your life and increase your overall happiness.

Morning Pages

Similar to our "journalling" suggestion, Julia Cameron, author of "The Artist's Way," recommends starting each day with three pages of stream-of-consciousness writing. Julia says that "Morning Pages provoke, clarify, comfort, cajole, prioritize and synchronize the day at hand."


Use a dot-grid notebook to get your thoughts out on paper and clear your mind for the day ahead.

Bullet Journalling

Our dot-grid notebooks are perfect for putting your creativity on the page with bullet journalling! This practice combines planning with doodling, memory keeping, habit tracking, note-taking and more to create the perfect notebook for you during any season!

Mind Mapping

Use your dot-grid notebook to create mind maps of your thoughts and ideas and to break down goals into actionable steps. Mind Mapping can help you better understand complex concepts and make connections between different ideas and goals.

Habit Tracking

Create a habit tracker in your dot-grid notebook to help you build new habits and break old ones. While your weekly planner has a habit tracker on each weekly spread, a dot-grid notebook gives you an opportunity to track habits on a larger scale.
