Getting a brand new planner can be one of the best ways to start off a new year (or even a new month) on the right foot! However, maybe you’re wondering, “What type of planner should I get?” Having options is amazing but it can also be overwhelming when you so badly want to make the right decision. So, let’s talk about the types of planners to choose from and how to find the planner that is right for you.
Think About What Has Worked (Or Hasn’t) In the Past
Before we start the fun work of actually choosing a digital planner, it’s good to think back to previous planners that you’ve had. What did you like or not like about each one? For example, maybe you used a huge, paper daily planner and you liked the daily pages but found it too big to take with you to the office or to a coffee shop.
Choose Paper or Digital
Another big decision is whether you want to go with a paper or digital planner. Now, of course, we’re a big fan of going digital. Digital planners are a great way to have access to your planner whether you’re at home, visiting family, or just out at the store. Never again will you have to cart your physical planner all over the place. Going digital is also a good way to lessen your paper usage and work towards sustainability.
Consider Whether You Want All in One or Separate Planners
You can also think about whether you prefer to have different planners or systems to separate different areas of your life. Or, if you’d rather have one all-in-one planning or organization system. If you want a great all-in-one option, make sure to check out the new 2022 Yearly Digital Planner. Inside this one planner, you have a 12-month calendar, weekly planner, and a daily planner. Plus, you’ll also find a financial planner, routine planner, habit tracker, mood tracker, meal planner, and workout planner. What more could you want!
Using a Planner to Focus On a Specific Area of Life
Unlike the 2022 Yearly Digital Planner, you also have the option to choose a planner focused on a specific part of your life. Let’s say that you have big goals to make reading your primary hobby this year! Then, a Reading Planner could be a great choice for you. Or, you could take your fitness and wellness game to a new level with a Health & Wellness Planner. On the other hand, maybe you’re still a student and need an Academic Planner.
Here are a few more fun digital planner options:
- Social Media Planner
- To Do List Planner
- Daily Mindfulness Planner
- Goal Setting Planner
- Money Moves Financial Planner
Now, if you’re a planner obsessed person (hand raised) then you’re probably drooling over all of these choices and wondering how you’ll ever choose. So, let’s make it easy. After all, choosing a planner should be fun, not stressful, right?
First, if you just want to make a quick and easy decision, you can’t go wrong with the Undated Yearly Planner. As we talked about above, this is a great all-in-one planner. Then, if you decide later on that you could use a specialized planner as well, then go for it.
Another way to decide is to ask yourself this question, “What one area of my life if I massively improved it, would improve everything else as well.” For instance, if your finances are a constant source of stress, improving your money habits with a Money Moves Financial Planner could radically improve your life.
