Every time the new year begins, I always hear someone having a conversation about how skeptical they are about New Years resolutions.

"They don't work. I break them every time. I mean... doesn't everybody?" I hear a girl say to her bff as I wait to order hot chocolate at a coffee shop. 

And I get it. The whole "new year, new me" thing isn't exactly authentic.

Not because we can't change. In fact, we can change. You and I can grow into whoever we want to be and can learn how to be whoever we wish to be. 

What makes it hard is holding onto our self doubting and self harming thoughts... our knee-jerk reactions to the difficult things that happen in our lives... and our unhealthy and unproductive daily habits. 

We all have them.

And it's when we hold onto all of these things combined, that we don't grow. Instead we keep doing the same thing over and over again, and as a result we never change. 

If you want to change... if you want your life to change... I invite you to stop seeing new years resolutions as something that doesn't work. And if you don't want to change, ask yourself "Why am I resistant to growing?"

I invite you to see the New Year like a fresh new day. 

Each new day offers you the chance to start afresh, to achieve the things you most desire. When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. Today is a brand new day. Forget about yesterday.

The same goes for the New Year. Every new year gives you the chance to write the unwritten 2018 or 20XX chapter of your life. You decide how it goes. 

And one of my favourite ways to do this is to use planners.

Back in the day I used to think planners were just pretty things I'd order at the start of the year and not finish. When in fact, once I learned how to use them, I discovered how powerful and life-changing they can be.

Planners give you a reason to plan. To create a detailed vision of where you want to be. And planners help to make this vision become reality by showing you the small actions you need to take, and the changes you need to make to grow and get better over time. 

I invite you to see every new year, new month, new day as an opportunity for you to do better than what you did yesterday.

And planners are the perfect tool to use to get better every day.

Here are the top 5 planners I believe can teach you how to get better every day and achieve what you desire most.

#1 - the Best Planner for Being Productive and Successful



Only £20.99

If you're career driven and want to make 2018 your most successful year, this planner is for you. Created by YouTube star Mimi Ikonn's husband Alex (who also created the 5 Minute Journal) I wondered if it was all hype. But it's not. It's actually one of the best planners out there.

It teaches you to prioritise and finish the most important tasks of the day. By choosing what to not do with your day and focusing on a couple of things, you're delivering better work in less time and 10x-ing your productivity along the way.

In the words of Natalie Bacon, "If I could, I'd give this planner to everyone I know as a gift."

#2 - the Best Planner for the Law of Attraction



Only £29.95

If you'd like to make 2018 the year you manifest as many things as you possibly can, this journal is for you.

It shows you how to become the best possible version of yourself emotionally, physically and in all the key areas of your life.

What's awesome is that this journal is partially based on The Secret and also used leading scientific studies that are proven to increase your happiness and ability to manifest amazing things into your life.

And if you don't believe it, there's a money back guarantee.

#3 - the Best Planner for Being Healthy & Happy



Only £39.95

This is my all time fave journal for showing me how to be healthier, happier and all Goop'd up. In addition to helping me track and spot my eating habits (and how I'm sabotaging myself) it inspires me to incorporate meditation, stretching, mindfulness and gratitude into my daily routine. Every day it inspires me to make a healthier choice than I did yesterday.

The creator behind it has other journals you can use such as a Yoga Journal, a Training Journal, a Life Planner and even a Business Planner. I think I've gifted these planners to all the people I love and am maybe one of their biggest fans.

#4 - the Best journal for getting organised



Only $24.95

If you feel like you have million thoughts running through your mind, this journal is for you.

A bullet journal is more than just a journal. It's a system you use to organise your past thoughts, your current to-do lists and your future plans all into one place.

It captures and buckets your scattered ideas into neat index-able bullet points. That way nothing is lost, you're on top of everything and you feel way less overwhelmed.

#5 - the Best Weekly Diary



Only £21

Online calendars are amazing for scheduling meetings and knowing where we need to be and when. But what they don't do is give you a chance to reflect on your week ahead without a computer screen. Often when I meditate, I like to quickly jot down some small yet important things I'd like to do on specific days of the week. And this linen covered weekly diary is perfect for this. The texture makes it a joy to open and use. And the diary is filled with spaces to capture the little things you can't on your online calendar, such as a your shopping list, your wishlist, addresses and so much more.

And that it's. These are my fave planners that help you become mega productive and getting the things that are most important to you done.
