Why you should use a planner Weekly?
The current generation is generally always under high stress and tension as there is very little time and a lot to do. A weekly planner comes in handy at such times which allows the individuals to properly plan, organize and strategize the entire week well in advance so that no important task is missed out.
There are multiple reasons why one should be in a regular habit of using a weekly planner.
The major benefits of the weekly planner are as follows:
Helps in creative activities: Weekly planners help us getting into an organized schedule regularly. There is research which states that if a person plans his or her day well in advance then he or she is most likely to get enough time to not just finish off the to-do list but also to give time to their selves and indulge in some creative activities.
Individuals can take out time by following their passion or hobbies during their free time. If an individual sincerely sticks to the weekly planner, then he can easily take out time for a little free time for your artistic endeavors.
Humans are not machines and do require rest and some fun activities regularly. Another research suggested that, if a human being does not take enough breaks then his productivity will go down even if he invests extra hours.
Hence, by following a regular schedule written in the weekly planner allows the individual to take out some ‘ME’ time regularly.
A handy book for records: Throughout our lives, we are surrounded by information, data and records. A weekly planner is a very effective way of maintaining records, different tasks, appointments, and varied notes.
One can always keep a note of all the important dates related to birthday’s anniversaries, meetings or catching up with friends and family. This way it becomes impossible to miss out on any important event of your life.
What should I write in my planner?
Goals: Each individual has several goals and aspirations. However, until we write our goals and clearly define them. Writing the goals in the weekly planner makes the path crystal clear and then the entire focus is on achieving the target.
The weekly planner acts as a reminder that allows every individual to track the progress of the goals. The planner helps the individual to remain focussed throughout.
Weekly challenges are like mini-challenges which help the individual to make really small targets and achieve them from time to time. It does not add a lot of pressure also on the individual.
Budget: Budgeting is an art. Not everyone can be artistic. Overspending is a very important characteristic trade that all of us suffer from. However, it is very important to note the amount of money we spend throughout the day or week.
Hence, a proper budget should be made which helps you analyze your expenditure. This way the individual will know if he or she has spent on events that were not necessary and can avoid spending on them in the future.
Weekly planners act as a combination of reminders and a reality check. They help the individuals to keep moving to and fro from one side to the other. They keep reminding the individual to finish off their schedule tasks and the to-do list and at the end of each week, the planners give a provision to the users to keep reviewing their performances. Notice any loopholes, analyze the reason for the loopholes and work hard to overcome next time.
