Paper Planners Can Help Reduce Stress and Increase Productivity — and You Can Download These for Free
Now is the perfect time to get organized.
In the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, many people are finding that their list of responsibilities has actually gotten a lot longer. Not only are they juggling how to best work from home, if they are still working, but they are also figuring out how to balance work with parenting duties, homeschooling, cooking, pet care, chores, self-care, and much more.
Sometimes, in order to sort through the chaos that can happen while a stay-at-home order is in effect, you have to sit down, take stock of your needs, wants, or expectations, and organize them all into an easy-to-use planner.
That’s why Appointed, a company that makes sleek and minimal calendars, planners, notebooks, and more paper goods, is offering free, downloadable planner pages for people who are in need of some structure.
While you can absolutely order an Appointed planner online, using these free, downloadable pages is a great way to get started on your organization journey without extra time and money for shipping. Plus, having a planner can add some real benefits to your life in general.
Planners are a great way to be less distracted, help your memory and stress levels, motivate you to keep on task, and generally manage your needs in a healthy way, according to Luxafor, a site dedicated to the tools that increase productivity. And paper planners have been increasing in popularity as a good way to relax and take time off from the many screens (TV, computers, smartphones) that dominate our lives. Having a physical object, rather than a digital one, is a way of committing to a healthier, more organized lifestyle.
The free, downloadable pages include daily planning, weekly planning, monthly planning, to-dos and checklists, pages optimized for students between elementary and high school ages, meal planning, and weekly routines for kids.
All pages are formatted for standard-size, 8.5 by 11-inch printer paper. For more information or to download your own pages, visit the Appointed website.
