I have trouble remembering to take my vitamins and calcium supplements. And at the moment, I’m having trouble integrating daily exercise into my schedule.
I think that’s why the My Life Matters planner appeals to me so much. It’s designed to allow women to pursue balance: there’s space to plan and note all aspects of your life: mental and emotional well being, physical health, spiritual well being, relationships, finances, work, life dreams, and passion.
I had the pleasure of meeting one of the creators of the My Life Matters planner, Laura Thake at a NAPO St. Louis meeting. When she showed me her beautiful planner, I told her I thought my blog readers would love it. So she sent me one so I could explore it a little bit more. And she offered to send one to one lucky blog reader.
Here’s a picture of the cover (from the My Life Matters website):
You can get complete information about the planner at its website, but I’ll list a few things here that I really like about it:
Since each month is 25 pages, it feels very expansive. The designers have cleverly divided the planner in half: January to June is bound together (it has spiral binding) and July to December is a separate volume. If all twelve months were bound together it would be a so thick and heavy you’d never want to take with you.
Laura at My Life Matters has offered to send a six-month planner (January-June 2011) to one lucky reader of my blog. To enter, just make a comment below and/or tweet about the giveaway. (Be sure and put my twitter handle, @janinea, in the tweet, so I’ll see it.) If you comment and tweet, you’ll get two entries.
A winner will be selected at random on Tuesday morning (March 8). I’m sorry, but the giveaway is open to people in the U.S. and Canada only. I’m making that stipulation so that My Life Matters doesn’t have to pay for overseas shipping.
If you’re looking for a paper planner that helps you keep track of all aspects of your (and feel good about yourself!), this is definitely worth checking out. The website is loaded with photos of pages and possible ways to use them.
