      5 Tips on How To Improve Your Handwriting

      5 Tips on How To Improve Your Handwriting

      In today's digital age, handwriting seems like a lost art form. With most communication happening on computers or smartphones, the need for good penmanship may seem outdated. However, studies have shown that handwriting is actually good for your brain and can have a positive impact on cognitive development. In this blog post, we'll explore the benefits of handwriting and share some tips on how to improve your penmanship.

      The Benefits of Handwriting

      There are several benefits of handwriting that have been backed up by research. For one, handwriting has been shown to improve cognitive development. Writing by hand engages the brain in a way that typing on a keyboard does not. It improves memory retention, comprehension, and creativity.

      Handwriting can also help with stress relief. The act of physically writing out your thoughts can have a calming effect on the mind. It's a great way to clear your head and process your emotions.

      In addition, handwriting can improve fine motor skills. The small movements required to form letters and words with a pen or pencil can help to develop hand-eye coordination and dexterity.

      Tips for Improving Your Handwriting

      If you're looking to improve your handwriting, there are a few things you can do to get started. Here are some tips:

      1. Practice, practice, practice. The more you write, the better you'll get. Set aside some time each day to practice your handwriting, even if it's just for a few minutes. It also helps if you have a fabulous journal to use for your practice! Find our journals HERE

      2. Use the right tools. Make sure you're using a pen or pencil that feels comfortable in your hand. Experiment with different types of pens or pencils until you find one that you like. We offer a wide selection of the cutest pens, have you seen it? If not, click HERE

      3. Start with the basics. Begin by practicing individual letters and then move on to writing words and sentences. Focus on writing neatly and evenly spaced.

      4. Pay attention to your posture. Sit up straight and make sure your arms are positioned comfortably on the table or desk. This will help you to maintain control over your pen or pencil.

      5. Experiment with different styles. There are many different styles of handwriting to choose from, so don't be afraid to experiment with different techniques until you find one that feels natural to you.

      In conclusion, handwriting is good for your brain and can have many benefits for cognitive development, stress relief, and fine motor skills. If you're looking to improve your handwriting, remember to practice regularly, use the right tools, focus on the basics, pay attention to your posture, and experiment with different styles. By incorporating these tips into your daily routine, you can improve your penmanship and reap the many benefits of handwriting.

      Planner Hacks to try in 2023

      Planner Hacks to try in 2023

      Here we are, one month down in 2023! We know sometimes all the best laid out plans still fall through. So we've gathered some helpful hacks that can help you make the most out of your planner. These are just a handful of ideas to spice up your planner game.

      Color coding: Use different colors to distinguish between different types of tasks or events. For example, you could use one color for work-related tasks and another color for personal tasks. This makes it easy to quickly identify what needs to be done and when.

      Prioritization: Place the most important tasks at the top of the list or in a prominent location in the planner. This makes it easy to see what needs to be done first and helps to ensure that you don't miss any important deadlines.

      Break down tasks: Break larger tasks into smaller, more manageable chunks. This makes it less overwhelming and helps to ensure that you stay on track.

      Self-care: Use the planner to schedule time for self-care and relaxation. This helps to ensure that you take care of yourself and stay energized throughout the day.

      Regular review: Review the planner regularly to ensure that tasks are on track and to make any necessary adjustments. This helps to ensure that you stay on top of things and that nothing falls through the cracks.

      Symbols and notation: Utilize different symbols or notation to indicate deadlines, reminders, or other important information. This makes it easy to quickly identify what needs to be done and when.

      Long-term goals: Use the planner to track progress on long-term goals. This helps to ensure that you stay focused and motivated.

      Different planners for different aspects: Use different planners for different aspects of your life, like work, personal, and school. This helps to keep things separate and organized.

      Be flexible: Be flexible and adjust the planner as needed. Life is unpredictable and plans change, so be prepared to adjust your planner as necessary.

      Using these hacks, you can make the most out of your physical planner and stay organized, productive and on top of things. Remember to make the planner work for you and not the other way around!


      5 Reasons to Invest in a Planner for 2023

      5 Reasons to Invest in a Planner for 2023

      I know what you're thinking: you don't need yet another planner once you downloaded ten different productivity apps or habit trackers on your phone. We get it, we're in the digital world now BUT we still have a generation of people (call us old school if you will) that loves to get shit done on our paper planners! 

      I've tried digital planners, the apps and everything out there in the digital space but for me, there's nothing like a good paper planner. Also, studies say, that you're more likely to accomplish your goals if you actually write them down (not type on a screen) - our memories work its magic when we write our goals and plans on paper instead. Trust me! 

      I rounded up 5 reason why you should have a new planner for the new year! 

      1. Increased Productivity and Organization

      One of the biggest benefits of using a planner is the increased productivity and organization it can bring to your daily life. By having a designated space to jot down your tasks, appointments, and commitments, you can ensure that you stay on top of your to-do list and don't miss any important deadlines. Plus, the act of physically writing something down can help you commit the information to memory and prioritize your responsibilities.

      2. Improved Time Management Skills

      In addition to helping you stay organized, using a planner can also improve your time management skills. By scheduling out your day and week, you can better plan how to allocate your time and make the most of every moment. This can be especially useful for those who struggle with procrastination or have a tendency to overbook themselves (aka, me! lol) 

      3. Enhanced Goal Tracking and Achievement

      Another advantage of using a planner is the ability to track your progress towards your goals. Whether it's a short-term goal like finishing a project at work or a long-term goal like saving for a down payment on a house, having a planner can help you break down your objectives into smaller, more manageable tasks and monitor your progress along the way.

      4. Stress Reduction and Improved Mental Health

      The benefits of using a planner go beyond just productivity and organization. By having a clear plan and structure in place, you can reduce stress and improve your mental health. When you know what needs to be done and when, you can feel more in control of your life and less overwhelmed by the demands on your time.

      5. Customization and Personalization Options

      Gone are the days of one-size-fits-all planners. Today's planners come in a wide range of styles and formats, so you can choose one that best fits your needs and preferences. From traditional bound planners to spiral and discbound, you can find a planner that works for you. Plus, many planners offer the ability to customize and personalize your layout, so you can make it your own and we do it here for you, by the way! 

      Have you seen our new 2023 planner? 


      What I love the most about this planner is that it was designed by you, yes, our customers got to choose the layout, cover, and binding through polls we sent on emails and social media. You asked, and we listened!  First, this amazing planner, besides being gorgeous, is so functional! With the discbound binding, you can add and remove pages as you go, which means you can use this cover for years to come, you only change the inserts! 

      Now, let's talk about the layout! Besides featuring all the amazing reflection pages throughout the planner, we changed a little bit for the weekly pages. Once again, you asked for this layout, and we love how it turned out! On one side of the spread, we have the weekly layout, and on the other side, we have a dot grid page to let your imagination run wild! You can use it to journal, draw, create cute layouts and decorations, take notes at work meetings, etc. 
      Also, the pages are colorful in different pastel tones, which works great if you're big into decorating your planner. 

      In conclusion, investing in a planner for 2023 is a smart choice for anyone looking to boost their productivity, improve their time management skills, track their goals, reduce stress, and customize their planning experience. So why wait? Start the new year off right by investing in a planner that works for you.
