We make these resolutions every year, after indulging in extra sweets, and watching holiday movies on auto-play. We vow to eat healthier, to workout more, to stay on top of our finances, and to read more. Sometimes we stick with our goals, but more often than not, we let them slide to the wayside come February and March.
However, people are more likely to follow through with their goals when they have a plan, and are even more likely to follow through when they have accountability. So get your planner for each resolution you have, map out the steps you need to follow to reach your goal, and hold yourself accountable. Here are some of the best planners for organizing and following-through with your new year’s resolutions.
The Fitness Planner
Look better, feel better, and have more energy by getting fit in 2023. The majority of people planning resolutions make them about fitness. But how many people actually stick to their workouts?
Following through with your workouts is easier if you don’t have to think about what you’re going to do. That’s why having a fitness planner is so valuable. From food logs, to exercise logs, to a place for weekly goals, it’s easy to stay on top of fitness goals with our planners. The Happy Planner has many fitness planners if your goals include getting to the gym, and eating right. From our 2023 Tie Dye Fitness Happy Planner with a cover to get you motivated, to our 12 Months - Undated - Mini Happy Planner that you can easily carry to the gym, we are sure to have a workout planner that is perfect to help you meet your specific fitness goals.
Now, more than ever, is the best year to organize your budget. It’s not easy with receipts blowing out of your purse, and automatic renewal subscriptions shaving dollars off your paychecks, but it is possible. The best way to keep on top of your finances is to get a budget planner. Figure out where you’re spending your money, and optimize your savings.
If your finances are organized in one place, you can see when it’s fine to indulge a little bit, and when it’s better to pack your lunches at home. You can track your expenses, plan to save, try out no-spend challenges, and become more mindful with your money with our 2023 Bright Retro Budget Happy Planner. Good money management comes from being organized and building habits, but that’s not to say it can’t be fun! Take the fear out of budgeting with happy stickers and accessories.
Practicing gratitude is like practicing happiness. As January rolls around, and seasonal blues abound, making a resolution to be more grateful is a worthwhile endeavor. It’s easy to become overwhelmed by to-dos, and getting situated into new routines. Take a moment to reflect on what makes you grateful. Practicing gratitude brings you back into the present moment, promotes higher levels of positive emotions, and can reduce stress and anxiety. It should be everyone’s new year's resolution! Find some amazing gratitude journals at The Happy Planner, like our Goal Plan Repeat Guided Journal.
Read more. Many people claim they don’t have time to read, but authors are releasing amazing books about science, business, faith, art, and everything in-between. Reading is good for you, as well. Reading fiction increases empathy, and sometimes it’s just fun to get out of your head and jump into other worlds. If you organize and plan your time, you can get those pages read. And you can track the books you read, too!
More people are likely to remember what they read if they write down what they’ve learned. So keep a book journal this year. Plan on rafting down the river with Tom Sawyer, or learning about courage with Brené Brown? Whatever the case, log your books with one of our planners. You can summarize chapters, or entire plots. Try organizing your entries with ratings, and note the books you love the most with stickers. As you build up your list, and you see your progress, you’re sure to read more! It’s a fun way to start a lasting, helpful habit. A book log makes a great keepsake to review at the end of the year, too.
Many of our planners can be organized as book logs. So pick the color–we have many designs–and style –classic, or skinny–you like the most, and start reading!
We hope you’re able to find the planners you need to help achieve your resolutions this year. Follow us on socials @the_happy_planner, and be sure to tag us so we can be inspired by your creativity! Happy New Year!
