Free printable planners for anytime or dated for 2021! Designed by and intended for, those that are trying to living more intentional, with shorter to do lists and embracing a simpler lifestyle. Perfect for chronic illness warriors so you have just enough space for the few things a day you need to get done, but not so much space you feel like you’re not doing enough.
I love planners and all things papery, writing and list making. However, in the last couple of years, all of the planners I have looked at and the few I have tried, make me feel like I’m not doing enough. They have too much space for making to do lists and I always feel like I’m not doing enough. As someone that lives with a neurological disorder, I need a place to write down appointments and the few things that I really need to get done daily. Other than that, I am learning to pace myself and go with the flow of living a more simple and intentional life.
USING YOUR PLANNER
This planner I designed with all of that in mind and includes space gathering your thoughts for the day.
Focus – Whether that be your health, work, kids or even cleaning the kitchen. Whatever your focus for the day needs to be, you can write that in and have it be a gentle reminder.
Gratitude – No matter how hard the days can be, it helps our attitude when we look at what we are thankful for.
Affirmation – It’s been proven that saying a small affirmation in the morning can help redirect negative thoughts and help you stay more positive through the day.
BUILDING YOUR PLANNER
- Paper – I used 110 lb white card stock to print mine, so that I could print double sided and ink from my pens not go through. You can also use 80 lb paper for this and the pages will be a little lighter weight. You can send or take the file to a printer to have it printed also and they will give you choices in paper.
- Hole Punch – I used a 3 ring hole punch on my binder and my wall calendar
- Rings – I found plastic binder rings in multiple sizes on Ebay, super cheap! And I will send you a set totally FREE if you’d like. Just take a photo of your planner pages and send in a message on my Facebook page, along with your U.S. mailing address. This offer is good until I run out of rings, I have at least 20 sets of 3 to give away 🙂
- Dividers – I found images online and printed them on the front side of Free monthly calendars. Then attached this super cute Monthly tabs from TegamiFox on Etsy.
