Caroline Mabey and Taylor Glenn are friends and comedians, trying to keep an open mind when it comes to self improvement.

So in each episode of their podcast 'The Self Renovators', they test out some of the self help techniques claimed to help you lead a better, happier, more productive life.

For a week they'll try out say breathing exercises, a digital detox, or even a gruelling regime of cold showers, and report back on whether it's helped them, what the science says, and if they're going to adopt the method, adapt it, or ditch it altogether.

Here they try out a productivity tool called a bullet journal: if you Google it you'll see it's become a thing since it was invented by a Brooklyn designer called Ryder Carroll a few years back. It's a bit like a good old written to-do list; just far prettier, and a lot more complicated!

[Episode 21 of the Self Renovators podcast is called 'Bite The Bullet Journal' and is hosted by Caroline Mabey and Taylor Glenn].
