Life is difficult. No one prepares you for just how tough being an adult can be and no one warns you that your own feelings and emotions can make life pretty difficult. Anxiety can eat away at your confidence until you are just a shell of your former self. The anxiety demons make every day exhausting. Planning is our way of coping. It helps to quieten the demons in our head and allows us to concentrate on what is important.
Nothing beats climbing under a blanket, with a hot chocolate, a good film on the TV and allowing yourself time to write everything down and plan your upcoming week. We are planner and sticker obsessed. In today’s world of modern technology, there is something so wonderful about holding a paper planner in your hands. For us there is nothing better than spending a few hours decorating our calendar or creating a work of art from our to-do list. A planner isn’t just a diary, it is an extension of our personality. It is where we store our achievements and record life’s highs and lows. It is the story of us and our lives. It is an opportunity to escape to our youth and put an adult twist on the activities we used to enjoy as a child. It allows us to get everything out of our head and onto paper, where we know it can't be forgotten and we no longer need to worry about it.
We set up this business to help spread a little joy and bring calm into people's lives. We understand that decorating and setting up a planner is an important part of the process. Weekly planning is often the only 'me' time someone gets. Making this time as relaxing and self healing as possible is our mission. Having something to look forward to is so important for personal well-being. Remember how exciting it was on Christmas Eve when you could see the presents round the tree but you had no idea what was in them? We want to help people get that excitement back every month and give them something to look forward to and enjoy.
Plus, as planner users, we often create our own free planner printables. We offer these up to all our followers completely free of charge, so you can download as many as you want for your planner.
We know that many people plan as a way of dealing with their anxiety. This is why we got started. To help people in a similar situation, we have created a 'Dealing with anxiety' section that contains helpful advice, tips for staying calm, mindfulness practices and hopefully a little bit of comfort for those experiencing a difficult time.
As well as the above, we offer hints, tips and advice for organising your home and work life with our helpful blog section.
We always love to hear from people, so please do get in touch if there is anything you would like us to blog about, any printables you would like to see or if you would like to chat to us about featuring in our boxes.
