The Happiness Planner 2019 - Blushes & ButterfliesThe last couple of years for me have been chaotic, mostly in a good way. But in the midst of getting caught up in life, I am now at the end of the year feeling a little unmotivated and unaccomplished. Like many people, I’m sure, I live for structure and planning. If it’s not in my plans, I’m not going anywhere or doing anything! I definitely need time to process events of the future and prepare myself for them (and that involves writing every single little thing down on my calendar in order to do so). So maybe that’s why I find myself unfulfilled at this point of the year because instead of planning, writing, and reflecting, I took a passive approach and just let life happen (which isn’t always as exciting as it sounds). But each new year brings hope, optimism, and a chance to start over and take the bull by the horns. The Happiness Planner 2019 is the first step in helping me to do just that and start the new year off on the right foot! In this post, I will unbox this beauty of a planner, take you through my first impressions, and outline everything it has to offer! *this post may contain affiliate links – to learn more, please read the DISCLOSURE page* “The Happiness Planner is designed to help you not only plan and manage your schedule and to-do lists, but also to live a truly happy and fulfilled life in alignment with your core values. You’ll learn to live more consciously, and to embrace the power of positive thinking, mindfulness, gratitude, and self-development.” It features 460 pages of sturdy white paper, a rose gold pen and clips, an inner pocket, and a lot of reflection and planning printables! It comes in a gorgeous ombre box and it’s own dust bag! Seriously, what planner comes with its own dust bag?? Everything from the box to the bag to the planner itself and even the pages within it is so high-quality, I can’t even tell you how impressed I am by all of it. So right away, when you open the box, you see that it comes jam-packed with little cards, tidbits, and printables. The details of this planner are so pretty! It has a hardcover front and back with rose gold detailing on the outside edges as well as a rose gold spiral bind that matches the pen and clips! The design is also very simplistic, but modern, which is exactly my taste. It’s a very sturdy planner, but I was not expecting it to be as heavy as it is. This is definitely not your everyday flimsy planner, and certainly not something you are able to throw in your bag and carry around with you everywhere (like I used to do with others). But now that I see the amount of content it has inside, it makes sense. And because this planner contains everything I’d ever need and everything I never knew I wanted, I’m completely okay with its weight! Priorities So what exactly does this planner contain on the inside?! Well… 2019 and 2020 calendar overview Happiness roadmap Monthly overviews, goal-setting, and reflection pages 365 daily pages for every month of the year Daily quotes, intention setting, schedules & to-do lists, exercise & meal plans, positive thinking, gratitude, and notes pages Each month is separated by tabs and features a general overview, a plan going into the new month, and then a reflection at the end of it. I love that they have this because it gives you a chance to see the progress you’ve made and memorialize your goals and feelings at the beginning and the end. There are also various questions and checklists throughout the planner to help keep your priorities in line and motivate you for what’s to come. The roadmap pages help you to become more self-aware and set fulfilling goals. The planning pages are there to keep you focused and on track for the monthly goals. All the daily pages (yes, dedicated pages for each of the 365 days) are in place to fill your days with inspiration. Finally, the reflection pages allow you to write down your highs and lows and learn from them as you go through the weeks and months. As someone who loves to plan and document my journey and progress along the way, I really appreciate such a comprehensive approach to this planner. This is why I am so excited to go into the new year because I feel equipped with what I need to make it the best one yet!
