Hello friends and welcome back to the blog. I know, it’s been a while, but we have been incredibly busy here at the store. Have no fear, we’re starting to get back into the swing of things! Today’s blog post is brought to you by Day Designer! I have to be honest here friends, I am super excited to be writing this post, because our friends at Day Designer sent us a Planner to Give Away to you!!! To learn more about our contest visit our Facebook Page here
Now I am someone who writes lists for EVERYTHING...dates for workshops, dates when we have to make a delivery, things that I have to accomplish and that worked for all of 5 minutes...because you see, my problem was that I kept losing my lists. Yeah I know what you're thinking...Come on Alexa, You’re a Mess! Get Your Act together! Well that's tough for my ADD self… but we’ll touch more on that in another blog…..anyway, after years of my own organizational system not working, I have found something that actually works! My Day Designer Planner. It has been a lifesaver! (Now if you happen to read the blog after our contest is over, my sincerest apologies but you can always get your own Day Designer Planner here…)
First things first, the packaging on these planners…OMG...they are packaged beautifully. I mean opening the box was almost as fun as using the planner itself. Plus I’m a sucker for anything Mint Green and Gold. Each planner is packed so carefully to ensure that there is no damage whatsoever (which makes me happy because I carry my planner everywhere !)
Once you open your planner, it has a space for your information, you know if found please contact blah blah blah but it also has a space for your word of the year which I find so interesting because this year was the first year I decided to pick a word of the year based on the advice from my business coach, Jennifer Allwood...and if you must know, my word is commit.
As you go through these beautifully designed planners, you’ll see there are tips and tricks on how to live a well designed life. (Thank God, I could use all the help I can get) There is a section for a personal assessment, where you can figure out where you want to go in life, a section to find out what goals are most important to you, a section for monthly actions you will take, and how you can implement new weekly routines to change your life! Guys, there’s even a section to plan out 3, 6, and 9 month goals for what you want to accomplish in terms of self care, relationships, personal development, and how you spend your time and money. And all this is before we even get to the planning part.
Now that we have gone through all the extras, it's time to get into the day to day of this planner. And for those of you who are reading and are just now realizing its, July and you are wondering why on Earth is this girl promoting a planner seven months into the year, don’t worry, this planner goes from July (2019) to next June (2020)....This planner is just awesome you see...I am the type of person who needs everything very structured and this fits my needs to a “T”
Each Day has its own dedicated page starting out with an inspirational quote…. What better way to start your day than with a quote that will motivate you to get going? Next, there’s a space for your Top 3 Goals of the Day...so that's perfect for your must do things. Have a special project that’s due for your boss? No problem, there’s a space for anything you may have due that day. What you’re planning on for dinner? There is a space to track your spending, and a “Don't Forget” space...perfect for reminding yourself to call the dentist because you forgot again for the 465th time.
Each page is split in half and broken down hour by hour with a To Do list to the right. The hourly agenda starts with 5 am, which is great for all you early birds who are functioning humans at that hour (I am not) and goes through 9 pm which is perfect for tracking appointments or any projects with a specific due time ...or if you’re like me, it’s a great place to plan your social media posts by hour…. The To- Do list is where I write the things that pop into my head as I go about my day...oh I need to ...write a blog post or call a customer...into the To-Do List you go… Each page also has a place for notes and Daily Gratitude ...and we all know if we can find one thing each day to be thankful for, we will live a much happier life.
All in all, the Day Designer Planner is a great tool to help anyone from a business owner to a Mom on the Go to stay organized. We can not say enough good things about this planner. Plus they come in a variety of sizes, styles and patterns. We’re sure you will find one you love!
