Managing 2 YouTube channels, a blog, my social media, work and LIFE basically, can get pretty hectic and crazy. Organizing my mind mentally is a huge part of how I stay sane and get everything done. I use these 5 methods to help me clear my mind so that I can focus and be super productive.

Love these for giving me a monthly overview. It’s so much easier to plan when you see everything from a different perspective. You can see all the days & weeks an know at a glance if you have free days or conflicts. which day is your busiest or when you have appointments etc.
2. Daily Planner: The Happy Planner
I like using my daily planner to plan the every day details of my life: chores, work, appointments & just the run of the mill things to do. The planner I’ve been loving is The Happy Planner & I did a full review of it in the video below.
I also have a TON of free printables that you can download for your planner. It’s made for my planner but you can use them for any planner if you scale it before printing. Just search “FREE” in the search bar at the right of my blog & you’ll get a ton!
There are also planner kits like these that you can get if you’re now starting that planner life.
3. Personal Planner : Webster’s Color Crush
This is filled with my dreams, goals & everything that’s personal to me. It’s also how I plan for my blog and my person channel. Planning content in advance is really important so that I’ll know what direction my blog is going and I’ll always have an idea of what I want to post. I use the Webster Color Crush Planner in Mint– the personal size.
I think everyone should have a personal planner because it’s a great way to focus on YOU. I feel like you can even use it as an everyday journal, doodle-book or scrapbook where you can just let go & clear your mind.
4. Fitness Planner
Fitness is a HUGE part of my lifestyle and I love tracking my goals. That’s where my fitness planner comes in. I could track my workouts, what I ate for the day & water intake. At the beginning of each month, there’s an overview where you can post a progress selfie & goals etc.
Should I do a post/video review on this??
5. Reminders App on Phone
Let’s be real- as much as I love paper planning, digital planning definitely has its perks. Almost every phone as a reminders app. I use this to make lists when I’m on the go e.g. in the grocery, drugstore etc. or when I have random bursts of inspiration & I don’t want forget it. I pull out my phone and write little notes so later when I’m home, I can see what’s up.
