Your planner starts by creating a Self-Care Plan: Six positive psychology researched steps designed to help you reflect on your current self-care practices, recognize areas where you can improve, and generate ideas for new self-care activities you enjoy.
The daily page combines everything you need to plan and schedule your day with space to keep track of your health and wellness.
The weekly page allows you to track your sleep and mood patterns, get rid of bad habits, and set yourself up to succeed by prioritizing your goals.
Functional formats to keep my personal and professional life in check
I'm onto my 3rd Self-Care Planner. After going through many different planners and their formats, I find the holistic approach of incorporating personal and professional priorities in Self-Care Planner is the holy grail I have been looking for. It helps to keep me in balance and on track both personally and professionally. I like having space to jot down my personal priorities for the day next to my professional ones. It allows me to be more focused on professional setting, because I know I'm not forgetting my personal needs. I also use Cal Newport's time block method to organize my day. I find the hourly block format useful enough for my time block needs. I start my week on a Sunday. I find the upper right corner 'day of week' feature flexible enough where I can circle the day of the week on each daily planning page. On the start of the week page, I simply write on top of the initials of each day of the week to align with the week starting on Sundays. It works for me. I do wish there are more blank pages in the planner for notes. At the end of each week, I wish there is 1 more blank page (total of 2 blank pages) for notes. At the end of planner, I'd like to keep track of books I have read and would like to read, and places I have and would like to visit.
Organized my whole life!
I love using this journal! It encompasses the most important things -hydration, nutrition, exercise, and good sleep- yet it is incredibly customizable as well. I would recommend it to anyone who loves to track things and is looking to begin/continue their wellness journey!
love love love!!
This is the best planner I have ever purchased, and I’ve tried many. It’s a great combination of practical planning with mindfulness and self care. I cannot recommend it enough!
Back and loving it
This is my third planner and after taking a 1-yr break while traveling abroad last year I am so happy to have this back into my daily routine. No other planner has kept me as conscious about my habits, health, and joy quite the way this one does.
I feel seen
I absolutely love the layout and components of the Simple Self journal. It combines all of the wellness information I’ve been trying to track in a variety of other formats into one simple book. My only suggestion would be to have the paper be a bit thicker/opaque.
They thought of everything! I love this planner. I used to have both a gratitude journal and a planner, this takes care of both. The only thing I wish were different and it’s not a big deal, but I wish the month pages coincided with the weeks pages so that you don’t have to flip back and forth from beginning of planner to where you are in the middle. I would also like the paper to be a tad thicker if I had it my way. But overall I am extremely pleased with this!
