It’s hard to believe 2017 is just around the corner. It feels like just yesterday I was making strides toward my 2016 resolutions, planning the ultimate summer getaway, and engaged in a perpetual countdown for the Christmas season. Now it’s all culminated into a few last days marking the end of a crazy whirlwind of a year, and boy am I ready for the next one! If you want to slay 2017, a planner will definitely help you accomplish new goals and make the most of the year. It’s a critical tool to keep you organized, on track, visionary, and inspired! So here is a little list of some of the best planners on the market.
1. Day Designer
The day designer is my personal favorite planner (so yes I am biased by putting it on the top of the list). It’s a larger sized planner, but in my opinion allows you to maximize your daily planning. Complete with top 3 goals of the day, hour-by-hour planning space, daily meal planning space, a space for “daily gratitude,” and things that are due on each day, this planner makes my inner type A personality scream with joy!
This planner is actually very similar to the Day Designer. It includes room for a budget, menu, amount of water you have had that day (making sure you stay hydrated!), hourly schedule, and top priorities for the day! What’s great about this planner is that it’s true to its “purposeful” theme. It comes complete with inspiring quotes, a section for prayer & praise, health-goals, and 15 minute suggestions to add purpose to your life!
This planner is on the more affordable side and still allows you to maximize your planning needs! While not as detailed as the Day Designer, this planner takes you to a deeper level by prompting you to analyze deep & purposeful questions to fuel your personal & professional growth. It also features hourly planning slots and lines to help your prioritize your daily to-dos.
This planner is a widespread favorite! Each day is broken into 30-minute sections to help with your time-management as well as filled with motivational quotes & challenges to keep you inspired and focused! What’s unique about this planner is the “Passion RoadMap” which the creators describe as an “annual exercise that helps you define, and create actions for your goals in 3 months, 1 year, 3 years, and throughout your life.”
This planner is chic, straightforward, and affordable – what more could you want? It features monthly vision & action step planning, as well as water-tracking and inspirational quotes! This plan definitely offers a lot for a lower price-tag, and the best part is it comes in a super cute design!
This planner is for the young at heart! On the smaller (and also more affordable) side, it includes a set of cute stickers you can use and a weekly to-do suggestion to spice up your life with adventure! While the planning space is not as efficient as some of the others on this list, this planner has its own special girly flair.
This planner is also on the more affordable side but requires some extra work. Non-dated, it requires you to fill in the days/months yourself. It features space for reflection, personal growth, exercise goals, and even space to celebrate top three successes of the day and three areas for growth! This is definitely one of the best “bangs for your buck” as they say.
So there you have it. Seven planners for the year 2017. Which planner do you prefer (maybe you even have one that isn’t featured on the list)? Comment and let us know!
