The Benefits of Using a Daily Planner
You can definitely design your own daily planner simply by watching my design tutorial above. But here are a few reasons why you should consider using a daily planner in your daily routine:
A planner can help you keep track of important deadlines, appointments, and events all in one place. By having everything written down, you won’t have to rely on your memory or worry about forgetting something important.
When you have a clear plan for the day, it’s easier to stay on track and avoid distractions. You can break down bigger tasks into smaller, more manageable steps and prioritize your to-do list to make sure you’re making the most of your time.
When you know exactly what you need to do and when you need to do it, you can reduce the anxiety that comes with feeling overwhelmed or unprepared. Plus, checking off tasks as you complete them can give you a sense of accomplishment and motivate you to keep going.
Improve Time Management
By scheduling your day in advance, you can make sure you’re making the most of your time and avoiding last-minute scrambles to get things done. This can help you be more efficient and effective in both your personal and professional life.
Having a structured plan for your day can actually free up mental space and help you be more creative. When you’re not constantly worrying about what you need to do next, you can focus on the task at hand and come up with new ideas and solutions.
Overall, using a daily planner can be a great way to stay organized, increase productivity, reduce stress, improve time management, and boost creativity. Give it a try and see if it works for you!
If you want to design faster in InDesign, I recommend learning their shortcut keys.
Did you know that InDesign contains about 407 shortcuts? This is almost impossible to remember and that is why I’ve created a ONE-PAGE Indesign Cheat Sheet that I usually use while working on my printable in Indesign. They are the basic shortcuts which is really all you need to get started with InDesign.
