Is there any better feeling than crossing an item off your to-do list? (We say no.) While you may feel like you'd be lost without your virtual calendar, with baby showers being added, Zoom meetings being rescheduled, and a big reminder not to forget your sister's birthday, there's something refreshing about a good ol' fashion pen and paper planner. They give your eyes a break from so much screen time, they look professional and, again, is there any better feeling than crossing an item off your to-do list? The answer is still no.

What to Consider When Buying a Planner

Dated or Undated:‌ Dated planners—ones specifically made for 2023 and only 2023—keep you on track, since you have to use it that year, month and week or the pages will be wasted. Undated planners offer you a bit more flexibility since you have all the features and tools of a dated planner, but you may lack the pressure to use it.

Extras:‌ Some planners are no frills; they simply lay out the year, months and weeks in a clear and concise way. For some, the cleaner the page, the clearer the mind. Other planners are bursting with fun add-ons, like stickers, drawing prompts or inspirational quotes. There's no right or wrong style; simply choose what inspires you more.
