Planner stickers add fun and creativity to planning and organizing.
A planner is an embodiment of our lives. With our planners, we record everything from appointments to personal milestones, to action plans for our goals and dreams. That’s why it’s worth it to personalize your planner and make it extra special.
And thanks to planner stickers, we can customize our planners to our heart’s content.
There’s a reason that kids go wild for stickers. They’re pleasing to the eye, fun to play with, and they make everyday objects look so much more appealing. Lucky for us, stickers aren’t just for kids. You can use them to add a personal touch to your planner and help keep you organized.
Here are more reasons to love planner stickers:
- Chance to express our creativity
- Tactile experience of using our hands
- Stickers are ideal for visual learners
- Stickers make planner pages look colorful and dynamic
- Stickers keep your planner pages in order
- Stickers can serve as visual cues and remind you to take action
From tracking your goals to beating procrastination, here are all the different ways that you can use stickers in your planner.
Track your new habits
Are you having a hard time sticking to a new habit? Then use planner stickers to your advantage.
Integrating a new habit in your routine is no easy task. It takes time, patience, and effort to both undo old habits and adapt new ones.
An effective way to make your habits stick is to track them with planner stickers.
So if you’re trying to meditate every day for 5 minutes, then add a sticker to your planner every time you do it. By the end of the week, you should have 7 stickers in a row confirming your achievement.
A visual habit tracker will help you stay committed, until the habit eventually becomes so routine that you don’t need to track it anymore. It’s a little mind trick that does wonders for your motivation.
Commit to your health goals
It’s hard to rouse enthusiasm for healthy goals like “eat more vegetables” or “floss every night.” But when combined with fun, colorful stickers, your healthy actions will feel less like a chore and more like something your inner child can get behind.
Use washi tape to organize and log your workouts, healthy meals, strength training reps, and more. You’ll be achieving those health and fitness goals in no time, and it will feel easier getting there.
Measure your goals
You can also use planner stickers to measure the progress of your goals.
Studies have shown that a goal is more likely to succeed when it’s measurable. After all, when we don't measure our goals, we have no idea if we were moving in the right direction or even if we've gotten to the finish line.
We need specific targets along the way to inform us if we’re moving forward or if we need to adjust our actions.
Here are some examples of measurable goals:
- Your goal is to write a novel. Measure it by writing 1,000 words a day.
- Your goal is to work out more. Measure it by working out three times a week.
- Your goal is to eat healthier. Measure it by eating vegetables for three meals a day.
Use planner stickers or washi tape to monitor the number of days or weeks that you’ve been honoring your goal. You can also use different colors to help you track multiple goals.
If you’ve been struggling with procrastination, then let planner stickers help you take action.
We’ve all dragged our heels on doing our taxes or updating our health insurance and other administrative, stressful tasks. But you can combat procrastination and improve the experience by making the task as fun and creative as possible.
Taxes are not fun to do, to say the least. But you can still try to lighten the task with stickers, highlighters, and other cheerful tools. Examples: record the tax deadline in your planner and decorate the date with stickers; every time you cross an item off your tax to-do list, reward yourself with a sticker. This way, the task seems less scary and intimidating, and more friendly and approachable.
Adding creative flourishes to tasks and deadlines that we dread can make the activity much more pleasurable.
Create a calendar
Use planner stickers to help you plan out the year and never miss an important date.
You can create a calendar page in your planner to stay on top of work deadlines or professional goals. Or a calendar to keep track of your monthly tasks. Or a special events calendar to record important dates and special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and more.
Introducing stickers to your calendar layouts can help you be more mindful about your planning, and build excitement for all the things you are looking forward to. And let’s not forget the best part: stickers add so much flair and personality to your pages.
Our planner is a record of our lives. So it’s no surprise that we keep a lot of notes, lists, and other miscellaneous items inside those pages. You can keep everything organized with the help of planner tabs.These adhesive tabs come in a variety of eye-pleasing hues, from bright and retro, to classic and metallic. You can use planner tabs to organize your pages by month, task, and priority, so you can always locate your notes with ease.
