I use a paper planner to stay organized, which is something I’ve been doing for years now. In fact, it’s the tool that helped me finally stop using my phone as an alarm clock and get back into the habit of waking up on time (I’d forgotten how much easier it is to set an alarm on a bedside table than by reaching over and grabbing my phone). Of course, there are plenty of apps out there that can help you stay organized too; they’re just not quite as easy or convenient as having everything in one place. Plus, with a paper planner you don’t need to worry about battery life—or losing your entire calendar database because someone at Apple decided they needed more space on their servers!
Planning out your meals for the week on Sundays is a good way to save money, eat healthier, and plan ahead.
Let’s look at those benefits in more detail.
Planning your meals for the week saves you time and money by helping you stick to a budget. This is especially important when grocery shopping (or ordering in) during the busy work week. By planning out what you’re going to make for dinner each evening, it’s easier to avoid impulse purchases and unnecessary spending on unplanned food items—which means that buying dinner won’t break your bank account!
If you’ve set a goal to lose weight, run a marathon, or be healthier in some other way, use your planner to keep track of your progress. Write down the things that you have done and the things that you need to do. Also write down how much weight or inches lost, miles ran, etc. This will help keep you motivated when times get tough and remind yourself of what is possible when things are going well! Use this section as an opportunity for self-reflection: what did I do differently last week compared with last month? What about this month? How does it make me feel when I am successful at achieving my health goals? What have I learned from mistakes along the way?
If there are specific items or projects that need completing related to health goals (e.g., buying running shoes), write them down here as well so they don’t slip through the cracks while being busy with work/family/other commitments. If there are other tasks related specifically towards achieving these goals (e.g., making an appointment at the doctor), add those too!
Keep a running list of things you need to buy for yourself and for others as gifts, then shop for it all once a month or every few weeks. This is an easy way to ensure that you don’t buy the same thing for everyone on your list. Make sure to keep track of what you have purchased so you don’t forget about gifts that are coming up!
If you’re a person who forgets to pay bills, or if you’ve ever sent a late payment, you know that the consequences can be costly. One way to avoid these situations is by keeping track of all your bills and when they are due.
If you don’t have one already, set up reminders on your calendar so that it’s impossible for bills to slip through the cracks. You can also use Google Calendar or other tools like Boomerang for Gmail add-ons to send yourself notifications about upcoming payments.
Another great tool is a bill tracker that shows each monthly expense and how much money comes in each month (like Mint). This will help give you an idea of how much money is left over after paying those pesky necessities—so when Christmas rolls around next year, there won’t be any surprises!
Planning ahead is one of the best ways to save time, money, and energy. If you’re not a planner by nature or you feel like your life is too chaotic to plan ahead or stay organized, then try these tips for getting started:
At the end of each month, you should take some time to look back at your monthly calendar and review what has happened. What did you do? How did things go? Did they go as planned? If not, why not? Then use this information to build your next month’s plan. You should also take a look at all of the “to do” lists that were created throughout the past month and check off each item that has been completed. This way, you can stay on top of things and make sure you’re not missing anything important before moving on to new tasks for next month.
The power of habit tracking is that it can help you change your habits. This can be a good thing, like drinking water or exercising more often. Or, it could be a bad thing, like eating too much junk food or spending too much time on social media.
The key to achieving any goal is making small changes every day until you get where you want to go. With this in mind, if someone has a goal of being healthier by exercising more often, they have to do something every day in order to achieve that goal—even if the only activity is taking a walk around the block after dinner once per day (which would add up over time!). By using a paper planner and creating one habit tracker per month (or however often works best for each individual), they would write down exactly what they did each day that helped them reach their overall health goals!
For example: Today was my first full day back home after my last assignment and I didn’t have any homework so I decided to spend some time working out at home instead of going out with friends tonight because tomorrow we’re starting another big project together…
