Reasons why you need a belle de jour power planner for 2021

Have you ever felt your 2020 planner was a waste because of the pandemic?  Does the uncertainty of 2021 makes you think if you will ever need a planner?

Using a planner makes it easier to schedule events, appointments, tasks, and personal errands to manage time effectively. The different levels of community quarantine implemented in the last six months has limited our activities. In my case, the last work-related event I attended was a day before the ECQ took place. That was in March. You might conclude my planner has nothing written on it since then. But it's not empty. A belle de jour power planner is more than just a logbook of schedules.

If you feel like you haven't lived your life to the fullest this year, here are the reasons why you need a belle de jour power planner for 2021.

It helps you discover your purpose

What is your reason for getting up every morning? The challenges presented by the pandemic has somehow made you question your purpose in life. 

  • Are you doing something that you love?
  • Are you doing something that the world needs?
  • Are you doing something that you are good at?
  • Are you doing something that you can get paid for?
If you answered YES to all the questions, you have found your ikigai. Ikigai is the Japanese formula for a happy, fulfilling life.  The belle de jour planner can guide you in discovering your purpose in life.


It helps you pursue inner peace

Our mental health affects how we think, feel, act , and cope when faced with the normal everyday situation. A poor mental health can influence our ability to enjoy life.  The social and economic pressure can send us off track. The belle de jour planner has provided activities that will help you pursue inner peace.

It helps you influence positivity

Staying at home has probably made you spend more time online. Sadly, there's too much negativity on social media. The things we read and see online have impact on us. Instead of absorbing the negativity of the people you interact with, use the platform to spread positivity. List on your belle de jour planner the people who inspire you to be positive or write quotes that inspire optimism.

It helps you manage your finances

The economy suffered because of the pandemic. Even the people who have emergency funds are now making lifestyle adjustments in order to make ends meet. Those who are not financially literate have suffered the most. May this serve as a valuable lesson for all of us by being aware of how we spend our money. 

I'm an accountant by profession. The bill tracker and cash flow tracker are my favorite features of the belle de jour planner. It is so simple anyone can effectively use it to monitor and manage their finances.

It has a checklist to help you live your life to the fullest

Ticking off an item from a checklist gives us a sense of achievement. The 2021 checklist provided by belle de jour also helps you become a better version of yourself to make you live your life to the fullest. The difference categories create a perfect balance on all aspect of your life.

If you are not the paper planner type of person, 2021 is the best year to start exploring the beauty of having a belle de jour power planner.  I was NOT a planner but it has changed my life when my sister gave me my first belle de jour planner in 2013. It helped me define my priorities and become more productive. It made me look forward positively to the new year.

  3. Dear 2021,

    Rough ang naging 2020 sa halos lahat at kasama na rin ako dun. Daming challenges ang hinarap ko. Nag Combo na yung pandemic at ang pag hahanda ko sa board exam. Sobrang pain in the neck at katakot takot na sleepless nights kaka overthink at pag babasa. Pero dami ko parin pinag papasalamat kay Lord. Ngayon darating na 2021 alam ko mas magiging matatag ako dahil sa mga pinag daanan ko, At naging eye opener talaga sakin itong nang yayare sa aming bansa. kung papalarin maka pasa ng board exam at magamit ang aking pinag aralan bilang medtech gusto ko talaga maka tulong at mas lalo pang lumawak ang aking knowledge sa propesyong pinili ko.

    2021 I'm Ready! Im not expecting this year will be a tough year, im not also expecting this year will be a good year. I'm just going to do whatever it takes to survive and to live my life in balance and the way i want it.

    Keep Striving!

  4. Dear 2021,
    I know the whole world is expecting a lot from you. I myself have been hoping for an awesome new year because of the pandemic. However, I’m not getting my hopes up coz I dont want to be disappointed. Can you just please assure me that you’ll take care of everyone who lost their jobs because of the virus? My family wasn't spared by this crisis. It’s hard, really HARD - mentally, physically, financially, and emotionally. Everybody lost something or someone this year. So please, 2021, show us that in every loss, there is gain. That after every storm, there is a rainbow waiting. Make us experience the warmth of hugs again. Let us see and exchange big smiles once more. 
    You're all we've got, 2021. Give us a chance to be whole again.
