*Collaborative post.

Do you depend on planners to achieve your life goals? Add a splash of colour and creativity with these five fun planner ideas for your goal-oriented life.

When you have everything planned out well, everything runs like clockwork! Things would fall apart if you try to go against the plan. If this sounds like you, you might have a type-A personality. People with a type-A personality (who benefit the most from keeping a planner) are very organized and competitive.

In a ground breaking personality study done in 1976, of the 3154 people studied, a little more than 50% qualified as type-A personalities, so there’s a ton of type-As running around!

To help you spice up your personal planner, we have hunted for the cutest planner ideas to add function and flair to your favourite book. If you are looking for some awesome planner personalization inspiration, keep reading!

Stickers

One of the easiest things to add to a planner is a bunch of adorable little stickers. Put them on the front cover, back cover, all the pages, and anywhere else you can get them to stick!

The variety of stickers to choose from is mind-boggling. There are even stickers made for personal planners! Add little cake slice stickers to represent someone’s birthday or a stethoscope for an appointment with your doctor.

 

Customize a Bookmark

To make finding the current date a breeze, add a super cute bookmark that fits the exact size of your planner. You can use anything flat to make a bookmark too!

For instance, if you have a washi tape design that calls to you, stick a piece of the tape to a piece of white paper or cardstock then cut it out. Then stick it in your planner pages and trim to fit!

 

Custom Planner Pages

It’s hard to find a pre-printed planner that has all the elements you want in one book. A way to thwart this is to find a planner that needs a couple of tweaks. Add a page for notes if you need to or repurpose a superfluous section into something you will use more.

You can even start from scratch for custom planners that are everything you want and need in a planner without any of the extra stuff you don’t need!

 

Planner Ideas for Water Intake Tracking

Many of us have a hard time remembering to drink enough water. With a schedule that is hectic from sun up to sundown, who could blame you?

Try tracking your water intake in your planner (since you always have that in your bag). Add little water cups to each day and cross them out as you finish the cup of water. Now a quick glance can tell you how much water you have had and remind you to stay hydrated!

Why I am not surviving the school summer holidays

The school summer holidays are almost here and I can’t believe how quickly time has gone. I was shocked to check the school diary to discover the school will be closing in about a week. For a funny reason, I thought they were closing a few days after, but that’s not the case. The twins have had a wonderful first year at primary school. They have grown so much and have learnt a whole lot. I can’t believe how quickly they are growing. Sometimes I wish I could press pause on life; it feels like they are growing too quick! Which is why I have decided not to survive the school summer holidays. I have decided to make the most of it, treasure the 6 weeks we have together and enjoy every bit of it.

Why I am not surviving the school summer holidays

Back in the day, when it came to school summer holidays, it was a mixture of excitement and dread if I am being completely honest. I mean it is a whole 6 weeks holiday and my kids are very active. They behave better when there is a routine or stuff planned. We all don’t cope well when we go days with nothing to do but sit at home, and I am sure it is the same for many other families. We leave in a little village so there isn’t much to do here. The only soft play centre we had was sadly closed down some years ago, so there aren’t really activities for the kids to do nearby, except play in a playground, park and ride bikes/scooters outside.

However, I have made up my mind to enjoy the break and not survive it. Children are only young once, and the foundation is really important. I am from the school of thought that you should only have the number of kids you can deal with physically, emotionally and financially. So if you do that, you shouldn’t be tolerating the kids, you should be enjoying them. And if you are not, why did you have them?

Having the right mindset helps

I work from home which is why I initially dreaded school holidays because I am usually unable to work from home with the kids. So I end up doing all my work at night and I wake up tired and grumpy. But this time, I am doing things different. I am going to have work planned out well in advance so I don’t play catch up and get stressed out.

Children can be incredibly draining and I know all about that with my active twins, but I believe our mindset affects us parents more than their tantrums. Having a positive outlook helps and just cherishing the moments while they are still tiny and want to spend every waking moment with you is the way to go. That is how I see it and I am going to cherish very day of our summer school holiday, even if we end up doing nothing.

Until the next post, take care.
