Are you a planner person? I have several planners and I use them all to snatch my whole life together. I need to write things down in order to be organised or even just to brain dump and clear the fog in my mind. That’s why I created this free weekly planner printable to help out those who are new to planners and want to give one a try.
This weekly planner is also gonna be great for you if you’re more of a DIY girl and like to put together your own organisation systems instead of relying on pre-made planners with sheets you find yourself rarely using. With a printable planner, you simply print the pages you need. Keep on printing your favourite pages when you run out to build your own personal planner!
Like I shared in my post on setting smart goals in order to achieve them, a planner is an important companion for everyday life. The planner I use the most right now is the Law of Attraction planner, the undated version. I love that it does not have dates so I can pick up where I left off if I happen to miss a week or even a couple days of using it.
The Difference Between a Bullet Journal and a Planner
I wrote about bullet journals here which are more for the creative person wanting to completely arrange their planner from scratch. A bullet journal is blank and leaves the pages and organisation totally up to you while a planner has different pages already designed and ready for you to fill in.
If this sounds like you then this is the best bullet journal that can handle the design skills of a creator’s artistic pen.
How to Use the Free Weekly Planner Printable
I have affectionately dubbed this weekly planner the Living My Best Life Personal Planner after my Facebook group of the same name. I feel like LMBL is pretty much my life mantra, my motto, my personal philosophy and I am wanting to share that desire with you.
Do you want to live your best life? This personal planner was designed to help you to do just that. It starts out with spaces to write down your life’s philosophy, your ultimate goal, your purpose and even what a successful life looks like for you. If you’re using this planner to guide you on a specific project then here’s where you put your how and your why. Why are you undertaking this project? What principles will guide you while working on this project? What will pulling off this project successfully look like and how will you feel when it’s complete?
I think it’s super important to write these things down and to read them to yourself often especially when in a place of negativity. These are the moments when you need to remember why you’re on this journey and what you’re setting out to achieve. This space is designed to help keep you motivated and pushing onward in your journey. Whenever you feel lost, look back at what your purpose and your ultimate goal is and write down what is the next step that it will take to get there.
Goal Planning and Habit Tracking
After writing down your ultimate life’s goal, it’s a good idea to then write down your goals for the next three months, six months and a year. This is you breaking down your goal into bite-size pieces so you’re always taking action to achieve it.
You never know what you can accomplish in 12 months if you start right now. It will feel amazing to look back at these goals when the time has passed to see your progress.
I’ve borrowed habit tracking from bullet journalling but instead, you won’t have to design your own tracking page. I’ve listed on it things you should be tracking like water intake, exercise, money goals whether that’s saving, investing or what have you and even reading.
From there I have a brain dump page because sometimes you just need to free-write. I also have a page called list of things so whatever running list you want to keep track of this will be a good place to do that.
This page could be a running list of things you need to buy for a wedding, birthday party etc or movies you’ve watched this month, times you went shopping, books you’ve read, blog posts you need to write, whatever.
Monthly Calendar, Weekly and Daily Planner
The meat of the planner will be these pages. You’ll print them over and over as you need them to plan out your month, your week and even your days. I’ve included two different day planners so you can choose a style that works best for you or simply interchange them to keep things creative.
There are 12 pages in this planner in all including the cover page and I’m sure I’ll add more as time goes by. Feel free to print it out, bind them together or place in a folder so you can add pages to it as you need. I also recommend getting yourself some stickers to use with the planner to highlight priorities, important ideas on your brain dump page or to use on the habit tracker page.
These stickers aid my creativity and just generally make me feel happy whenever I open my planner to start my day or refresh my memory. You may love them too!
When you’re ready, check out the Law of Attraction Planner. If you’re a manifestation babe like I am, you’ll totally love this planner. It helps keep me high vibe and laser focused on my goals!
