What is a planner or notebook and why do I need one?

A planner and a notebook are the same thing in the sense that they both function as a way to keep your daily life organized. They can be used for jotting down deadlines, reminders, meeting notes, daily chores, work plans/ projects; basically anything you need to remember throughout the day needs to be written in your planner or notebook.

The benefits of using a planner or notebook are numerous. They are ideal for not only staying organized, but also taking notes in meetings or class. If you are someone who needs to jot down a reminder of something quickly throughout the day, they are perfect because they always have your back.

Tips on how to use your new planner/notebook

When you first get a planner or notebook, it is easy to be overwhelmed by all the blank space that needs to be taken up. Before going out and buying any pens or stickers (which is totally fine if that’s what you want), I suggest starting with just using your new journal for simple things like grocery lists, daily chores, and other tasks that you may need to remember for the day.

Once you feel comfortable with your available space and know how to take up all of it, go ahead and get creative by decorating/ personalizing your planner or notebook! There are so many different ways that you can customize them, such as using stickers or washi tape to separate the sections in your planner/ notebook. Decorate it with things that are important to you by adding photos or inspirational quotes, or decorating it to reflect your personality!

What is the best type of planner/notebook?

The right planner/notebook for you depends on how many days in a row you need them for. If you only need it for the week, a weekly planner will work (most planners and notebooks are weekly). If you want to go all out with your journal, then consider investing in an academic year planner. They usually span from August – July of the next year.
