If you're like me the New Year has you excited for the possibilities ahead. While you can make changes to your habits all year long, January and talk of the New Year holds a certain hopeful aspect to it. I love flipping back a fresh calendar and seeing what could be! Whatever your goals are this year, there's definitely three types of calendars you should keep and here they are.
1) A Birthday Calendar
What it is: A calendar which you write down all the important birthdays in your life.
Recommended format: A large physical 12 month calendar where you can see it everyday of the year, perhaps next to your desk or on your fridge.
Tip: If you're on Facebook, you should go like and share our page. After that, you should head to the "Events Page" on Facebook. Click on the birthday section to see every friend's birthday. Click here to be taken to the page we're talking about. Write the important ones down on your calendar.
Why you should have it: While Facebook does remind you the day of the birthday, to be really thoughtful you need to remember several days or even weeks in advance. Don't you want to be the thoughtful friend this year who sends a card, buys a gift, or plans a party? In order to do that you need some notice in advance! This calendar with it's large monthly view does that for you.
2) The Events Calendar
What it is: This is your typical event calendar which helps you keep track of key events, appointments, and important deadlines.
Recommended format: A small weekly-view planner to keep on your person or a digital calendar on your phone.
Tip: When using a digital calendar, you can set up "Do not distrub" or "silent mode" to turn on during important meetings that way you'll never forget to hush your phone before the meeting.
Why you should have it: As life gets busier, it's easy to forget what you've signed up for and what you have coming up. Keeping these jotted down will keep you organized all year long.
3) A Health Calendar
What it is: A calendar you use to track important aspects of your health.
Recommended format: Your format will vary depending on your health needs and what you'll be tracking. You might consider a small pocket 12 month calendar that you can keep on your nightstand for daily recaps or in the medicine cabinet for discreet note taking.
Tip: Make this calendar work for you. Use it to track important health factors. Here are some ideas: Blood pressure, weight, menstrual cycle, steps taken, water intake, fruits/veggies eaten, or sleep.
Why you should have it: The only regret you should have about caring for your body is not doing it sooner. If you're trying to meet health conscious goals this New Year such as loosing weight or getting pregnant, there's real value in keeping track of key health factors in writing. Don't take my word for it, ask your doctor what's right for you.
Those are our three suggested calendars to keep this year. What type or types of calendars do you keep? Let us know below.
