Weekly Planning

Map out your week to stay connected to your priorities. In the left upper corner, add your own motivational quotes or a weekly to-do list and top goals for the week. The additional lines in the margins are perfect for list-making and mapping out ideas. To use the daily Rate Your 8 assessment tool, simply rate each of the 8 dimensions of self-care on a scale of 1 to 10 by asking this question: “How well am I supporting myself in this area of my life?” 

Monthly Planning

As you consider the month ahead, map out your biggest self-care needs and priorities. Then use the Monthly Tracker to measure your progress each time you complete the activity. You can also use the grid below to track additional goals.

Yearly Calendar

Use the Yearly Calendar to map out important events, like birthdays, holidays, recurring medical appointments, product launches, and other important milestones.

Vision Board

Your vision board is a visual representation of how you want to experience your life — what you’re working toward, and what you want to invite more of into your life. Flip through magazines, search the internet, or scroll through Pinterest to find images that draw your attention and represent the future you want to create.

Quarterly Planning

Breaking the year into quarters can be a useful exercise, especially if you’re juggling a lot. Consider your goals and priorities for each of the four quarters of the year to get a big picture view of what you’ll need to accomplish. Pay attention to how much time and resources you’ll need to devote to your personal and professional goals during each quarter and make adjustments to your self-care plan as needed.

Take lots of notes? These slim notebooks* fit right inside the planner, so when you fill one up, just write the date on the back and grab a new one. That makes it easier to refer back to notes that you’ve taken in the past.
