"I usually don't use traditional paper and pen planners, I mainly use digital/online based planners to keep track of my day and responsibilities. However, after using the Silk + Sonder Wellness Planner ($20), I realised the value of writing things down. I noticed several behavioural changes while using this wellness planner, but it mainly came from being held accountable.
I noticed that I was more accountable with my fitness goals for the week. I felt more motivated to work out because I wrote it down. I was able to tick off my accomplished goals and physically see the progress I've made, whether it was working out everyday or seeing how much more weight I can lift. Writing things down made me less forgetful as well. Whether it was to buy groceries or toothpaste or to email someone back, pitch an article, or ask a question, the intention of writing it down made all the difference.
There is a lot you can do with this planner, and some parts may not be as relevant to your life right now. At first, it felt overwhelming to set intentions for every part of my life every month, especially since I was not used to doing it. However, I slowly started to fill out other parts of my planner when I felt comfortable enough. It's your planner, so you can fill out whatever parts are relevant to you. Introspection and self-reflection is a hard thing to do every month — you have to be honest with yourself. I'm so glad that Silk and Sonder allowed me to put myself in the mindset to build these skills."
