Working from home during the pandemic meant that many of us relied on online calendars and planners to keep organized throughout the day. Did you know, studies have proven that it’s more beneficial to write down your to-do lists in a daily planner instead of typing it on your phone and computer?
Now that we’re slowly making the transition from at-home to in-office, it’s important that we make the switch as smoothly as possible. If you’re on the fence about getting yourself a weekly planner, this is your sign to do so. Here are a few planners that’ll help keep you organized during your work days.
How To Use A Planner Effectively
It’s one thing to buy a well-rounded planner, but it’s another to know how to effectively use it. Using a planner becomes a routine. Once you get used to it, you’ll be moving through life like a breeze. When using your planner you should:
- Use Your Monthly View – this gives you an idea of what the month has in store
- Write Down Important Dates
- Be Specific With Your Daily Tasks
- Write Everything Down
- Be Consistent
- Use Check Lists, Check Completed Tasks Off
- Be Realistic With Your Tasks – Don’t Overwhelm Yourself
- Use Your Planner For Monthly Goals & Inspiration
If you’re the type of person who feels anxious about an upcoming work week, a planner might be the right thing for you. Writing down tasks that are stressing you out is a way of getting it out of your head and onto paper. Physically writing down it all down is a way to ease the mind and remind yourself that you are capable of completing all your tasks.
