Today’s hectic lifestyles have led many to seek ways to live more meaningful lives. Whether it’s minimalism, meditation, or mindfulness, there is a trend toward becoming more aware of our wellbeing. For example, according to TIME magazine, the number of American workers practicing yoga nearly doubled from 2002 to 2012 and meditation practice increased from 8 to 9.9 percent. Whichever technique you choose to help you achieve your optimal state of mind, setting your goals and intentions is always a good way to start a new year. And that’s exactly where the intentional and inspirational planner comes in handy. Instead of focusing on everything you have to do, focus on everything you can accomplish while maintaining your organization. Using a daily planner on a weekly or monthly basis can help to increase many different positive attributes associated with an organized lifestyle.
Why Make Your Own Intentional Planner
Surely, you’ll find some ready-to-buy planners out there. However, since it’ll be about your life goals and needs, it makes sense to personalize it as much as possible. That’s why we encourage you to get creative and come up with an intentional planner that will truly help you stay on track. By designing an intentional day planner you can assign yourself some mindful tasks throughout the year, remember important dates, and inspire yourself with awesome quotes. Here are some ideas to keep in mind:
- List your loved ones’ birthdays and other important dates.
- Set some periodic goals and add reminders to the planner.
- Find quotes from inspiring people and include them in the design.
- Identify those issues you struggle with and write some self-advice to help you through your most difficult moments.
- Come up with challenges and place them on random dates to create some excitement. For example, visit a new place, declutter your wardrobe, try a new restaurant, or play a new game.
- Add a ‘Monthly Lessons’ section, so you can truly reflect on what you have learned or want to improve.
A custom planner can also help to build your personal branding techniques. They are a show stopper which can get people asking about you and where you got them from. With a favorite design, name, or logo they can be particularly helpful in spreading a message. These planners can also go beyond the simple business card used to build your brand. Successful personal branding can help increase the impact of your weekly planner with goal setting and long term organization.
