Agree 1000%! My beloved Hobonichi-based bullet journal (Cousin Avec & Weeks) provides structure, killing the need for repetitive spread drawing; its flexibility addresses my desire for habit trackers, timeBlocking and more. The equally superb Kokuyo B5 (Edinburgh, Campus Wide Red — ooo baby) and multi-sized Muji notebooks delight with fab paper quality, AND subtle evenly spaced dripmarks running across the top & bottom lines as alignment cues.
Putting pen to paper has become a mind-clearing ritual.
