Over the course of writing for this blog, you can probably see that I am an advocate for planners, as well as organisation and planning. But instead of posting a photo-centric post for today, I wanted to post a logical post about the benefits of a planner.
They don’t crash.
What bothered me most about my old Samsung phone was that, due to a storage problem, it was constantly glitching, crashing, and subsequently would loose information. A planner doesn’t do this! Everything needed is at your fingertips.
They hold everything!
My planner has everything, as it is almost like a backpack to me. It has my vouchers, my train cards, medication, and the occasional photo. They really do hold everything-and you can add wallets in also.
Keep a blog or a business going.
In a planner, there’s a clear layout, meaning that you can juggle lots of information at once. This is a useful detail for keeping a blog, or starting a business, surely? And a very helpful asset at that.
Never miss a deadline.
If you’re a student, a writer, a blogger, or anyone else who is always working furiously towards a deadline, this is for you. You can keep track of all that you need to do, and it’s all within reach (see next point.) You can keep your timetable in there, as well as planning various assignments.
Information all within a reach.
Every tiny piece of information can be caught in a planner. And you can easily retrieve it, without having to recall where you stood it.
Doodling is such a lovely thing….and there was something in Cosmo about it positively impacting productivity. I love to draw in my planner, just to ponder occasionally.
It’s your own space.
In a world that is often very hectic, where we rush from one thing to another, there’s not a lot of space just for us, where we can think, reflect, etc. A planner is your own private space, and can act as a port of refugee.
Because why not?
You can make it colourful!
A podcast I downloaded a little while had Gala Darling as a guest, but part of the conversation revolved around how adding just some colour into your lifestyle can have a positive impact. Looking into my planner makes me happy, because of the amount of colour I use.
Organise a social life.
As a student, I don’t always wish to be doing homework, extra reading, tasks, revision , etc devoted to my qualifications all the time. This means I have to plan my time carefully, as to get the best out of both. And a planner does this well!
Keep track of a habit.
Whether you want to stop biting your nails, try new foods, stop smoking, etc, a planner can track this.
Reach your goals!
At the start of each year, I like to create a list of goals to achieve for the year. It’s an approach that allows me to set our my goals, thus systematically and logically allowing me to work towards them.
Store the contact details of your friends and work.
Pretty self explanatory, really.
Keep track of your post.
I like to write letters, and there will be more on the blog about that soon. Anyway, a planner could be used to keep track of this if you’re like me-who you’ve written to, if you’ve had any replies, etc.
As I like to save money, I have an insert, which allows me to keep my vouchers all in one place. You could do the same!
What do you use your planner for?
I am pleased to announce that I am working with Basic Beauty Tools. If you go to their website via this link , and order the Spongedry, you can get a free foundation blender by adding under ‘Note To Seller’ your colour code: LYDIAPINK for pink, LYDIAPURPLE for purple, and LYDIABLACK for black.
