How To Make Own Planner For Productivity (1 Big Canva Tutorial)

Wanted to create your own daily, habit, yearly planner for productivity? Here’s the best way to use Canva and design the planner of your choice.

I have created a 2022 planner for you. Learn how and why I created that and start designing.

Besides that, download a few other printable planners below.

What Is A Planner For Productivity?

A Planner For Productivity is a printable or electronic sheet that helps you to split your day into several time spaces to handle every task you would like to accomplish. It can help you organize, prioritize, and accomplish tasks more efficiently.

They can make you a goal-oriented person and can change your life if you use them effectively.

How To Use A Planner?

Write the tasks you wish to do early in the morning or before sleeping. There are various types of planners you could use based on your requirements.

  1. Daily planner
  2. Weekly planner
  3. Fitness planner
  4. Monthly planner
  5. Yearly planner
  6. Habit tracker
  7. To-do list

Use a Habit Tracker to keep track of your bad habits and good habits. Write the name of your habit.

If you repeated the habit on that specific day, check or fill color on that date on the habit tracker planner.

In the remarks section, write what you should improve so that you could remember it the next day. In this way, you can get rid of your bad habits and practice good habits.

A To-do list is another important way to stay organized and productive in your life. Create a list of the priority list and a list of hibernation list so that you will have to finish those tasks without neglecting them.

The negative thoughts and anxiety lead to procrastination and inefficiency. A Hibernation list allows you to feel more efficient because you would have completed the priority tasks at the end of the day and procrastinate only a few of the hibernation tasks.

The fitness tracker that I use has a goal section, accomplishments section, and reward section.

It is important to reward your accomplishments to stay consistent with your efforts. I made a mistake during my teenage. I kept on completing my tasks for almost 8 months and I forgot the reason I prioritized and accomplished them.

These 7 planners are very important to organize your life and to feel good for yourself. It is necessary to work hard even if you hate that work so that when you look back, you will feel gracious.

What Are The Benefits of Using A Planner For Productivity?

  1. Increased focus in life.
  2. Opportunity to stop addictions.
  3. Creating a system to achieve goals.
  4. Prioritize the right tasks.
  5. Ability to make more money.
  6. Saving time for family meetings.
Pro tip: The best way to stay committed to your planner is by adding motivational or inspirational quotes at the bottom of the page. You can design it in Canva within 20 minutes.
