Once I released my planner, I started seeing just how many other planners were out there. And how many of them I LURVED!
See I'd gone and created the planner that was exactly everything I wanted. Except maybe I didn't know everything I wanted ... because when I looked at others, they had different stuff...
So this year, I haven't created my own planner. I've pulled together some of my favourites and I'm using them for e everything I need.
No one planner can do it all for me, but the combination I've got is going to be a heap of fun to play with. I can't wait!
I'd love to know what you think of the list below. Oh, and no, I'm not using ALL of them this year (I'm not that mad) ... just 5 >_< hahaha. Let me know if you are using any of these planners, or if you've got some other amazing ideas in the comments below! Oh, and yes, some of these are affiliate links, so if that doesn't jive with you, hit up Google :)
They are just as important as the other stuff and not honoring them has consequences. Those consequences show up in the form of stress, anxiety, depression, and a general feeling of life suckiness. That stuff is no fun to deal with. Self care helps and it helps a lot.
The Self Love Planner + Workbook is perfect for you to print out and fill in with your gorgeous plans for 2014. It comes in .pdf form, ready for you to download, print out, and make freakin' magic! (You are buying a digital file to print off as you so choose!). The download also includes a black and white version so you can print it cheaper if you need to and add your own colour! Awesome!!
- 60+ pages o' awesome!
- 12 Calendar pages for 2014.
- 12 Monthly Planner pages.
- Several worksheets to help you figure out what kind of self care activities will work for you.
- Weekly planner pages.
- Sign the Self Love Declaration! Commit to loving yourself RIGHT NOW!
- Create a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly self care plan.
- Each Monthly Planner Page has a section for a to-do list, your monthly goals, as well as a blank section for you to fill in with whatever you want.
While not actually a planner, it can work really nicely along side your yearly plan - this year I picked one project a week to work through. Some of the projects didn't sing to me (or weren't relevant) so I could have weeks off. I also chose the project based on how busy my week was going to be.
For $5, there isn't much to lose ... and there is a Kindle version, so you don't even have to worry about printing!
Ermigawd I love that store. Everything in it is beautiful. I walk around looking at all the things and just imagine how I could use them all ... and then I shake myself and remember that I need to allow some time for do-ing, not always only planning!
This year I chose a Kikki-K diary once again because of the great layout - Saturday and Sunday are treated as equal members of the weekly family and given just as much space as the others. Hallelujah, finally!
Not to say it was an easy choice - check out some of the other beautiuful diaries in the pics down below. They all (including Pinky) have lovely quotes throughout and lots of space for left- and right- brain journal/diary requirements. Love.
The 2014 Create Your Amazing Year workbook & calendar is an incredibly popular & useful tool to help you plan out & make happen your most incredible year in life or busines (or both!). Over the last five years, thousands of women have used this workbook with the most amazing results. It’s the best planning tool available to help you make your year your most exceptional yet!
Used by entrepreneurs, artists, mamas, creatives, coaches, teachers and women of all ages, the Create Your Amazing Year in Life and Biz workbooks are filled with dozens of pages of powerful worksheets & a printable calendar to help you create your amazing new year.
This year there are two exciting updates to the workbooks - they are available as printed versions on Amazing, AND the downloadable versions are alterable PDFs - this is very exciting to neat freaks and those with less than wonderful hand writing hehe.
Recently, Moleskine have jumped on the colour bandwagon and now there are so many options to choose from - there is even a limited edition LEGO planner. Er, that's a Lego themed day planner, I think, not a planner just for your Lego. Not that that wouldn't also be cool ;)
Moleskine is a brand carried all over the place as well as online - if you want to see the whole range first I'd jump on Google and fall in love with something!
I bought this kit at the beginning of this year, and it made a really big difference in my life.
Charting your Cycle enables you to discover and get to know yourself in a way that nothing else does. You will learn about your own unique rhythms and how to apply these to your daily life in order to live your best, most fabulous life. You will discover your most fertile time of the month, your most energetic and creative phase and the importance of taking charge of your own health.
If you'd like to get really in touch with what makes you tick, work this kit into your 2014 plan!
Along with calendars and day planners, there are also a heap of other list pages - here's just SOME!!
- Gratitude List
- Life Highlights
- Life Lessons
- I did it!
- Things I love about me
- Lift up
- Wish List
- Gift List
- My People
- Go Local
- Films & Shows
- 101/Bucket List
- Blank Lists
Arienne also has a fantastic blog entry on her site about choosing what kind of planner will work for you, and most of her products are available as downloads OR printed versions - great for those who don't have ready access to a colour printer! While you're on her site I'd also recommend signing up to her newsletter ... it comes with freebies!!
But, I've gotta say, that's because her planners are pretty, well, freaking awesome! She really delivers the best of both worlds - as customisable and personalisable (that might not be a word) as a printable planner, but professionally printed and delivered.
You can pick your colours, your cover and design (even include one of your photos or artworks if you'd like) and then choose the calendar dates you want - you can even customise the stickers you'll get!
These bound planners include everything you'd expect from a Life Planner, plus list pages, bound in folder and plastic pockets, laminated covers and tab pages and inspirational quotes.
The only downside for this little rainbow-girl is the price - that level of awesome starts at around $75. Oh, and they are rather large, but that's ok by me! Check them out here.
The Scattered Squirrel is a very cute website created by Alli. She focuses on organisation and planning (gee, wonder what about that appeals to me lmao). And she offers a pretty wonderful range of FAH-REEEE printables, including an un-dated personal planner.
Go nuts and enjoy!
And if you've got any amaze-balls planning finds, pretty please share them in the comments!
Happy planning xox
