It’s time for another daily planning update! You may have noticed that I’ve been using a new type of weekly/daily planning spread in the past few months, so I thought it would be nice to go into a little more detail about how I’ve been using it.
The spreads I’ve been updating every day (besides my weekly spread) are my year in pixels tracker, my newly redesigned highlights page, and my habit tracker. Typically, I fill in these pages before I go to bed.
This vertical weekly spread, originally created by @penpapersoul, has been super fun and helpful to use. What’s great about this vertical layout is that I can set it up at the beginning of the week and all I have to do on school nights is fill in the boxes I’ve already created. It just makes it a little easier when I’m busy with homework and such.
Unlike other spreads I’ve tried in the past that were set up at the beginning of the week, this one actually has enough space for me. I don’t always fill up all of the space in each day’s column, but it’s nice to not feel cramped. Occasionally, if I have time, I do some journaling underneath my tasks for the day.
I also like that I have some space up at the top of this spread for weekly tasks—that’s definitely a must-have for me with any weekly spread.
And of course I’m sticking with my tea theme for the month! These doodles have been fun to draw. 🙂
What elements do you need to have in order for a weekly or daily spread to work for you? Do you like having monthly themes for doodles and colors or do you wing it? Talk to me in the comments!
