Hello everyone! I've recently been inspired by bullet journaling to start working in a nice planner I bought, it's extremely useful for keeping myself in check so I thought it would be nice to share with you how it's going so far.
This my spread for this week, I started with the planner on Wednesday so I had these two blank boxes to work with. Next week I'm planning on using the weekend boxes for this since they're too small to do anything else with.
The Monday box I kept a little "habit tracker" where everyday I tracked whether I did a couple of things that I wanted to do everyday or regularly. Working out, going out to play soccer, drinking 5 cups of water and writing my blog. I just colored in the box when I did something that day.
The Tuesday box is where I started an emotion tracker for the entire month. Everyday I'd use a color to indicate how I was feeling that day; sad, angry, happy. envy.
my handwriting is so GROSS and I spelled month as "moth" why
Then for the day boxes, I did a little timeline at the top where I could block out my day. I'd track how much I slept, whether I had any events that day, and when I wanted to go out and play soccer.
Under that, I just put some tasks that I wanted to accomplish as little reminders, for my art journal, things I wanted to order, blog related things, anything that I wanted to accomplish that day.

Besides keeping a planner, I also really like to track what I want to do in the day, scheduling it in hour blocks. EX: 1:00 - write blog, 3:00 - play soccer
It really helps me to make sure that I'm doing everything that needs to get done so I can accomplish more in a day with a plan so I don't get distracted and procrastinate (even though I sometimes do anyway..)

Having a planner and keeping a to-do list are both very simple things but they've helped me out so much this past week that I've gotten more done than I did in the entire month of July. When school starts you can just call me Organized Girl. if I keep it up.
Let me know how you stay organized? Do you use a planner or keep a bullet journal? Maybe we can share ideas :D
Thanks for reading,
