Do you ever go through days when you wake up in the morning and ask yourself, ‘now what next’?
Every once in a while, each of us has those days when our life feels directionless and things seem dull. TBH, this must’ve happened with most people during the pandemic when they were obligated to be home, and the only thing they could do was wake up, work, eat, sleep, and repeat.
If you went through such a phase or are still stuck in it, you must give credit to the importance of a planner!
Planners help you make a schedule, and with them, you may find it less complex to sort your daily activities. And don’t make the mistake of assuming that creating planners needs a lot of work and material. Today, all it takes is a few clicks to create a printable planner which can help you make your day more productive.
Wish to know how you can make your own planner this year? Well, read on!
How can you make your own printable planner?
Step 1: Get yourself a binder
The very first thing you need is a binder that looks attractive enough for you to feel like having around all the time. Binders act as covers to your planner and also help keep the different pages in place. They are quite reasonably priced and available in local shops (you can also make them on your own).
Step 2: Make calendars
The most critical thing your planner would need is a calendar. A lot of times, in the rush of the day, people forget specific critical tasks, only to curse themselves later (admit it, we’ve all been there). To ensure this doesn’t happen, it’s advisable to make calendars that can fit into your planner and note all the important tasks in them with dates.
Step 3: Customize your online planner
Decorate your planner the way you like. After all, you’ll look at it every day, so it better be good. You could use an online platform like Canva or another similar one to use pre-built templates and handle the fonts, colors, backgrounds, and sizing. They even let you create printable planners.
Step 4: Get hold of your printer
Once you’re ready to print, make sure you have a good printer. You wouldn't want all that effort to go waste with a low-quality print now, would you?
Step 5: Accessorize
Who says you have to stop when your planner is printed? Grab some stickers, some color pens, and some markers and unleash the artist in you. Remember, it’s your planner; it should reflect you.
To wrap it up
Printable planners have become the need of the hour, especially in 2021 when we’ve all struggled with so much negativity the past year. Keeping all other reasons aside, it feels satisfying when you have your entire day planned. It not only lets you be more organized but also fills you with positive vibes. So don't hesitate to jot down your plans in your own personal style!
