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!
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.
