Make it Your Best. Year. Ever! with this New Planner
Here at YAYOMG!, we’re admittedly a little planner obsessed. We’re constantly on the hunt for amazing planners that give us the flexibility and customization that we love, but also all the space we need to jot down our ideas, keep us motivated, and most importantly – prevent us from planner hopping over and over again. If you know that feel (or even if you don’t), we think you’re going to totally LOVE the Best. Year. Ever! planner from Klutz.
Best. Year. Ever! is more than just your average planner. Part planner, part gratitude journal, part inspirational side-kick, Best. Year. Ever! encourages you to stay organized, stay motivated, and stay happy while helping you have your best year yet.
It’s loaded with over 75 pages of colorful calendars, motivational prompts, and unique list ideas that keep you motivated not just to have a great year, but to remember why it was so great. Sure, it’s a great way to remember your besties birthdays and that important assignment you have to do for school, but as you fill out your Best. Year. Ever! planner, you’re challenged to always be yourself and to appreciate the little things that make life great.
Thanks so much to our friends at Klutz for sharing this awesome journal with us!
Best. Year. Ever! Planner from Klutz:
Before we dive in, let’s break down what’s included with your new Best. Year. Ever! planner. In addition to the planner itself, you’ll receive 270 colorful stickers, 132 inspiring sticky note tabs, and an extremely cute pen – pretty much everything you need to get started. If you’re like us, you’ll definitely want to deck out every page and make it totally you, so feel free to grab some colorful markers, washi tape, or any other craft supplies you have in your collection.
One thing you’ll notice is that this planner isn’t dated. That means you can get to work on having your best year ever right away, you won’t have to wait for January 1st. We think the new school year is the perfect time to wipe the slate clean and have a great year, but you can literally start any time by adding the month stickers to the calendars yourself. The thing we love best about this? We’re notorious for getting planner crazy for a few weeks and then forgetting about it for a few more. Sometimes it’s hard to get back into journaling and planning when you leave so many empty pages in between where you got a little busy or unmotivated – being able to date the planner yourself eliminates that feeling. You can jump back in at any time right where you left off. Pretty cool.
Best. Year. Ever! encourages you to stay motivated in a lot of different ways. Even if you’re not exactly the planner type, there’s still so much for you to do. Write a letter to your future self, work on the weekly challenges, and craft your own adorable bookmarks out of paperclips. There’s lots of lists to fill out and even a reminder of all the super fun holidays like “Festival of Sleep Day” and “National Taco Day”. Don’t worry – there’s a handy list you can refer back to so you never miss a single one!
You’ll also be challenged to channel your inner emotions. Why were you feeling a certain way on a particular day or week? Even when you have a bad day, this planner helps you see the positive by having you jot down something good that happened that day as well. You may have missed the bus or forgot you important project at home, but in the same day you might have eaten your favorite ice cream or aced a math test.
Best. Year. Ever! is all about helping you see the good and put a smile on your face. There’s a mood tracker challenge to help you learn how your moods change while doing different activities. Other challenges will encourage you to identify a negative mood and try smiling to cure it. Sometimes all it takes is cracking a smile for you to turn your whole day around.
Best. Year. Ever! also encourages you to break out of your comfort zone a bit. One of the weekly challenges pushes you to try new things by asking you to have “A Week of Yes”. That means that for each day of the week, you should try to say “yes” to something that you would normally say “no” to, and write a few sentences about how it turned out. Maybe you’ll find out that you actually really like sushi or playing basketball and were holding yourself back due to your fear or anxiety. Even if everything you try goes wrong, you’ll feel so great for having given it a shot!
With fun inspirational quotes sprinkled throughout the pages and bright colorful designs on every page, you’ll for sure find yourself excited to keep journaling all year long. By the end of the year you’ll have an amazing keepsake to look back on and remind you of all the great moments you had and amazing things you accomplished!
We really loved the Best. Year. Ever! planner and are looking forward to continuing to use ours this year. We know you guys will love it to! Want to get your hands on one?
