I love pretty templates, but they also need to be practical. Luckily, these weekly planner printables are both!
They have just enough pop of color for a girly aesthetic without being too over the top.
Both layouts include lined and unlined versions as well as Sunday and Monday starts.
Horizontal Planning Layout
This design includes a to-do list column on the right side of the page, so if you have any tasks that you don’t want to assign to a specific day, you can add those there.
There’s also a notes section at the bottom for any other reminders you may need to jot down.
Vertical Planning Layout
These do not have a notes section like the previous ones, but they do have a spot for you to write your top goals for the week, which is a nice bonus.
Tips for planning your week
1. Set aside a few minutes each week for planning.
Not only for planning the upcoming week but also for reflecting on the previous week.
Here are a few key questions to ask yourself as you’re reflecting:
- Am I happy with how this week went?
- Am I doing too much, not enough, or the perfect amount?
- Are there any ways I can improve?
2. Consider a brain dump.
If you ever sit down to plan your week and you feel overwhelmed or bombarded with thoughts, a brain dump can be incredibly helpful.
Sometimes you just have too many things on your mind and you need to get everything onto a sheet of paper so you can sort and prioritize what needs to be done first.
3. Consider your goals.
Another thing to consider when you’re planning your week is your personal goals.
Are there any weekly goals you can aim for?
If you’ve created a goal plan, these will be those smaller action steps you can do each week that will inch you closer and closer to your bigger goals.
4. Try not to OVER plan.
Remember, it’s important to not pack too many things into your weekly schedule. I try to aim for 3-4 important tasks each day.
I’ve found that I’m way more productive when I don’t have an endless, overwhelming to-do list.
If it starts to feel like too much work, it will be hard to stay consistent.
