I originally heard of simple self through a subscription service called Cause Box. I loved my 13 week planner so much that when I completed it, I immediately bought the digital download version of the self-care planner! I have already recommended this product to my friends and family, and I would recommend it to anyone!
I'm an avid planner user for many a year now. This is one of the most refreshing planners. It does such a good job of understanding "out of sight, out of mind". The designer has done the work to understand what things fall off the plates of "to-do" driven days: drinking water, taking a moment to reflect on what one is grateful for, thinking about what one ate, exercise, and so much more. I love that because... well... trying to remember all of these things is another part of mental-juggle-stress. This planner was designed to see that. I love it and use it everyday. I couldn't find proper reviews/user photos about the digital version. I use it on my iPad and highly recommend it. It's a great investment.
I received my first planner through Causebox and was a bit skeptical at first. But working through the 13 weeks was a genuinely useful experience. The planner is so well laid out that it motivates you to keep going and the realizations along the way (big and small) were important enough that I ordered the refill pages. Going forward I suspect this will end up on my holiday list because having a bound copy is just that much nicer.
I am so picky about planners (having used many since I learned how to write), and this one has passed the test. It is the "self" planner on my desk, in addition to a mini-journal and a planner that keeps track of my work hours and appointments. I am easing my way into using all of the features (the weekly assessment area - sleep, habits, etc.), but on a daily basis, I can keep track of my self-care actions, food intake (basic form), primary goal, to-do list, exercise, and one thing I'm grateful for, all in one spot. Being a mom, wife, and working 3 jobs, I forget to do something for myself some days, and I need to reduce stress. This journal helps to remind me - fill in those blank spots for the day, including self-care, even if it's just a tub bath at the end of the day. I am able to recognize how all of the features of the day affect each other and the engine that is me, haha. It's all connected. I started to plan my day ahead by filling in some spots ahead of time, so it keeps me on track. Great gift idea for the person you know who does it all but needs better self-care habits and likes to use a paper planner and/or paper journal.
This is an amazing planner. I love how it covers all aspects of self care and has challenges. Such a great tool!
I genuinely love this planner. I'm going to start using it January 1, but I've spent a lot of time poring over it and I'm going to start the beginning pages and filling in dates soon. PROS: it's gorgeous. I love the gray color, the metallic embossing, the pink ribbons. The paper is nice and thick. The design is lovely and clean. There's a good mix of self-care/health stuff and to-dos/productivity stuff. This planner is beautifully thought out and designed. And the additional health tracking in the back is a nice touch. CONS: These are all pretty minor. 1) There's a misprint in mine where the first week in the planner is missing its weekly planning page. 2) The weeks are each 9 pages long, meaning one week starts on the left side of the spread, and then the next week starts on the right side. It's a small complaint, but I like uniformity in design. 3) The cover itself has a slight sharpness around the edges. 4) There's no pocket in the pack, unlike most planners these days. Overall, this planner is gorgeous and I hope the company is successful. I would definitely buy another in the future.
