Why everyone needs a planner
Across the globe, we are a population of very busy people. Balancing working, the household, hobbies and a social life can be rather overwhelming in the modern world. Many people are succumbing to stress and lack motivation due to the mountain of tasks that they feel they are always working through. However, a simple trick that can help reduce this stress is keeping a planner. To learn more about why everyone should own a planner, continue reading.
Improve organisation and productivity
Writing in a planner means that you can organise your time efficiently, and therefore get the most out of your day. Creating a do list at the start of each day and jotting this down in your planner allows you to clearly visualise the tasks that need to be done and enables you to focus your mind on them. Writing in a planner, rather than on your phone, also helps you stay productive. When making notes on your smartphone, it is far too easy to become distracted and spend hours strolling through social media. With a paper planner, this problem never occurs.
Reduce your stress levels
If you’re a busy person, you may sometimes find you feel overwhelmed by the amount of stuff you need to get done. Even a small task can bog you down and leave you feeling unmotivated. Having a planner means you can keep track of everything you need to do, greatly reducing your stress levels. You will never panic that you’ve forgotten something important, as it’s all written down neatly and orderly.
See your prioritiesWithout a planner, you may struggle to know which task you should complete first. This can be very daunting and lead to a lack of productivity. With a planner, everything is written down so you can clearly see what needs to be done first. Anything which you don’t get done can be moved to the next day, and you can assess how important the task really is.
