Ponderlily Planner - Mindful Living
The lovely team at Ponderlily offered to send me one of their planners, which I was very happy to accept. I don't usually say yes to planner reviews as nearly all of my planning is filled out in my bullet journal.
However, this planner really intrigued me as it focuses on a "to-be list" rather than a "to-do list". Intrigued? This planner is all about focusing on positive habits, setting intentions and taking time to recharge. As someone who is very focused on getting things done, I am becoming more and more aware that I need reminding to relax and be in the moment.
"The Ponderlily Weekly Planner is created for the person who wants to live a bold, intentional and fulfilled life, to help them plan for a well-balanced lifestyle...It puts yourself, your purpose and your dreams onto the agenda, helping to create a life with new experiences, meaning, fulfilment and inspiration."
Each new month starts with a quote and road map, where you focus on areas such as wellness, relaxation and spending time with friends and family. This really appeals to me and I think it will be a great tool to help me give focus to these important areas of my life.
The monthly calendar is nice and simple, with good size boxes to plan out your month.
The daily planner is one of my favourite parts of this journal. There is a space to write your intentions for each day, a box to record how you have recharged and a positive habits tracker, along with a time ladder for each day. This is different to other planners I have seen and I really like the positive focus.
Finally, there is a check-in spread to fill out at the end of each month. You use this to reflect on the progress you have made against your monthly road map. At the back of the journal there are plenty of notes pages that are perforated, so are easy to remove.
I can't wait to get started with this planner in 2019. I'm determined to give wellness much more of a focus next year and this journal looks like it will be extremely helpful.
The journal itself comes in three different colours and has a very tactile cloth cover. They are environmentally friendly, using soy-based inks, recyclable paper and recycled packaging. I have tested out fountain pens, pigment liners and brush pens with no bleed-through issues at all.
