I’ve thought that pandas were the best animal for a long time – it seems like the opposite of my fast-moving personality, but I always loved how cute they were and how deliberately they moved. When I got the opportunity to review the latest version of the Panda Planner, I knew I couldn’t pass it up: Just look at the adorable front graphic!
I was touched by the story of the Panda Planner’s founder, and I am amazed by all the touches that are about being happy. After all, anyone with a planner is probably cruising toward productivity. Someone with this planner is likely to be happier too, both because of the positive psychology touches, like celebrating big wins and gratitude, as well as things that we want to learn each day. There’s also the BEAUTIFUL drawings that allow you to take a break to color in a pretty picture and then get back to your planning!
I’m excited to use this undated planner in 2018 because just reading some comments this past week has made me realize that I’m not honoring all of the things in my messy life these days: I don’t just love goals and productivity. I also love many of the activities in my life, and the time I spend with friends, and the way my town makes me feel excited for the future. This planner strikes me as one that will help me honor goals but put happiness, hopefulness, and joy at the front.
An exciting aspect of this planner is that it includes all of the things you love about a traditional planner with all the positive psychology parts on top. I can still fill in my daily schedule, note when I have weekend engagements on the monthly pages, and fill the big paper pocket with receipts and invitations and cards. I like that the Panda Planner has enough paper space for me to add a ton of notes in my margins, because, let’s face it, I always will be a margin-writing girl.
