How to Be a Planner Girl

If you’re anything like me, you love all things planning. You’ve probably got your planner open right now as you’re reading this (or at the very least, within arm’s reach). But even the most diehard planner girls can have trouble incorporating their beloved planners into their daily routines. If that sounds like you, never fear! Here are five easy ways to make sure your planner is always by your side.

How to be a Planner Girl

1. Keep It in Your Purse/Bag at All Times

This one might seem obvious, but it’s worth mentioning because it’s so important. If you want to use your planner regularly, you need to make sure it’s always with you when you leave the house. That way, if you find yourself with some unexpected free time (a cancelled meeting, maybe, or a long line at the grocery store), you can whip out your planner and get some productive brainstorming done.

2. Set Up a Planning Station Near Where You Spend Most of Your Time

If keeping your planner in your purse isn’t enough to ensure that you use it regularly, try setting up a small planning station near where you spend most of your time. For me, that’s my home office desk. I keep my planner, pens, washi tape, and other planning supplies within arms reach so I can easily jot down ideas as they come to me.

3. Make Sure Your Planner is Pretty and Inviting

A big part of using your planner regularly is making sure that it’s a space that you actually enjoy spending time in. So take some time to personalize it and make it pretty! Use stickers, washi tape, and fun pens to make each page its own little work of art. You’ll be much more likely to use a planner that’s pleasant to look at than one that’s drab and boring.

4. Schedule Regular Planning Sessions into Your Week

Treat planning like any other important task on your to-do list and schedule regular times for it in your week. For me, that means taking 30 minutes every Sunday evening to review my week ahead and make any necessary adjustments to my plans. This ensures that I’m taking the time I need to stay on top of my commitments and avoid getting overwhelmed by last-minute changes.

5. Keep Track of What Works (and What Doesn’t) in Your Planner

Finally, don’t be afraid to experiment with different planning methods and strategies until you find something that works for you. And once you find a system that works well for you, stick with it! There’s no need to constantly switch things up just for the sake of change—if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

Are you ready to join the ranks of dedicated planner girls everywhere? Incorporating your planner into your daily routine is easier than you might think—and trust me, it’s worth the effort! By following these simple tips, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a pro at using your planner to manage even the busiest of schedules. Trust me — your future self will thank you!
