We all have heard the saying, “failure to plan is a plan that fails”. However, planning in an
agenda, notebook or custom ring binder has more benefits than just checking off your to-do list, setting goals and meeting deadlines. Planning can have a positive impact on your mental health as well. Depending on your needs, wants, and desires, you can get very specific and in-depth with different tools to help aid in your mental health journey.
Whether you want to track your sleep patterns, self-care activities, moods or journal daily, you can completely customize your planning style and reap the positive benefits. According to healthland.time.com, planning is the most effective stress management technique. Making mental health a priority is definitely becoming trendy, especially in the planning community. However, this is a trend that I would love to see flourish, grow and continue to reach a bigger audience.
We put so much effort into our physical tasks for work, home, family and school, we sometimes forget our own mental wellness needs. While mental health is often invisible and therefore gets easily forgotten, it can affect us in physical ways if we neglect it. You do not need to have a mental illness like myself to benefit from mental health planning. Every person is unique and so is their planning style. Our hope is that our event in July 2021 will help those wanting to incorporate self-care, gratitude, journaling and tracking into their planning.
Peace, Love & Happy Planning,
Joy and the Leadership Team
