As busy Moms who are juggling so many tasks and activities every day, it can be hard to pull ourselves out of the minutiae and make time for the things in our lives that lead us towards our goals. Heck- as busy Moms it can be hard to find the time to even think about having goals! And so we spend day after day getting small things done without any thought as to whether or not we are ever really going anywhere with our lives!
That's where having a fantastic planner system comes in- here are the 5 best planners for Moms for 2017 that can guide you to set some intentions for your life and help you to create goals and break those goals down into smaller steps so that you can achieve them. A family calendar can help you to get organized with your schedule and your time- but a planner can help to make sure that you are giving your life purpose!
Erin Condren Life Planner
I like to think of the Erin Condren planner as the first planner system that was created specifically with busy women in mind. There is a dedicated section for goal setting and a section where you can journal and write down personal reflections throughout the year. When you order your planner on Amazon, you can choose which kind of a calendar page layout you prefer- one with a weekly vertical layout, a horizontal one, or even an hourly layout.
But if you'd like to personalize your planner further- head over to the Erin Condren website where you can choose your own cover, add your name or an inspiring quote- and truly make it your own!
Forget about using a planner just to help you achieve goals- this is a planner that focuses on helping you to “cultivate happiness by embracing the power of positive thinking, mindfulness, gratitude, and self-development.”
The goal with the Happiness Planner is to make each day a positive experience, and as such it is filled with questions and guides that help you become a happier and more positive person.
The intention with this planner is to help you to become “the best version of yourself” by tapping into your own inner guidance to make sure your daily decisions and actions align with your values and what’s essential to your well-being.
The InnerGuide planner is very centered on finding your purpose and making sure that you are taking daily and weekly actions that lead to your self-fulfillment.
This is a gorgeous hard cover planner created by the ladies over at Brilliant Business Moms. The cool thing that makes the Brilliant Life Planner different, is that it comes with access to their “Planner School”- a set of video classes that will really help you dig in and focus your efforts on setting goals and breaking them down into smaller achievable bites.
The creators wanted to make sure that if you made the investment in their planner, that you would also know exactly how to use it to be successful!
Maybe you would prefer a little more of a beautiful “blank slate” kind of planner. The goal of this Emily Ley Simplified Planner is “to inspire women to organize, simplify, and carve white space for the good stuff of life.”
With inspiring quotes throughout and plenty of room for you to make lists and record thoughts and reflections- if clean, beautiful lines calls to you- this might be your perfect planner!
