Your planner is perfect for creating a daily routine, specifically with your full-page spread daily planner pages. These pages can be customized to where you are able to write down what your routine is, and track whether or not you are keeping up with it.
Why Do You Need a Daily Routine?
You might be asking yourself exactly why you need a daily routine. This is actually much more important to living a healthy, fulfilling, productive life than you might think. Everyone has a routine, which is the things you do each day, even if you don’t realize it.
You probably wake up and brush your teeth right? This is part of your routine, but you have done it for so long, you do it on auto-pilot. When you are creating a new daily routine, you are simple adding tasks or activities that are good for you, whether personally, to reach a certain goal, to improve your health, or for productivity and work purposes.
With a new daily routine, you are able to reach the goals you have always dreamed about, but kept putting off. You can finally become healthier mentally and physically, and even create extra time for the much-needed self-care you have been neglecting.
How to Use the Planner to Help with Your Routines
Your daily planner is perfect for working on a daily routine. You can first use it to figure out what your routine will be, then on each day in your planner, write down if you kept up with it. This gives you a place to track what you are doing each day, which helps to motivate you and encourage you to keep up with it.
More Tips for Using Your Daily Planner
Still looking for some more tips for using a daily planner? Here are a few more things to keep in mind.
Use Your Planner Every Day
To start with, you will benefit the most from your planner if you use it every day. This is why it helps to add it to your daily routine, whether in the morning or evening, and why it is great to have a portable planner you can bring with you. You may have a habit of using it in the morning during your morning routine, but you might have occasions at work or waiting in the car when you want to jot a few notes down or see what you have coming up.
Have at Least One Thing to Track Daily
In order to encourage you to use the planner daily, you should have at least one thing to track every day. If you don’t, it will be hard to find enough reasons to use it daily, which is ultimately going to leave you to quit using the planner and not get all of these amazing benefits.
You can track anything you want to do every day, from reading a chapter in a book and writing in your journal, to tracking how much water you drink or writing down your meals for the day. There are so many different things you can track daily, that the options really are endless.
Just think of what you want to improve in your life, your goals, or what you want to accomplish, and that can help you figure out what the daily tracking should entail.
Add Notes Each Day
Another great use of your daily planner is simple to add notes on each planner page. Have a blank section where you can write down anything you want, from an inspirational quote, to a mini journal entry of what you did that day.
This will come in handy in more ways than you think.
