Lion Planner Daily Edition | Review

I lead a pretty active life. Every day there's a new errand to run, a thing to do around the house, activities with the kids, you name it. That's why it is so important to have tools that help us stay focus and organized. Something to help us tackle those task and reaching some goals. 
.
.
The Lion Planner, Daily Edition is the perfect addition to anyone's busy lifestyle. In it you can plan, journal, stay organized with the calendar and use it to have some consistency in reaching some goals. It really makes you meditate on your productivity, how you managed that month and what you can do to improve it.
.
But, before I keep bragging about my brand new toy... Let me give you a quick tour!.
.
The Lion Planner has a faux leather, hardcover in black. Is super elegant and very compact. I got the A5, 5.5 x 8.5. It even fits in my purse. It has 288 pages that are made out of 100% recycled paper. And as you can see in the picture above, it includes 2 dividers and an elastic band to keep it close.
.
It also has an elastic pen holder. Honestly, it wouldn't be a planner if it didn't have that. Now, let's go check out what's inside. ;)

On the first page, you can put a quote or your personal information. Super convenient just in case you misplace it or lose it.
.
Now, I think this section is the BEST. In here you'll find tips and tricks on how to use and maximize your planner.
.
And now, the good stuff begins. On the left hand, we have the 2018/2019 calendar with some important holidays in between. Perfect to help you start planning, setting goals, etc.. And, on the right hand, it says, "The Beginning" with the question, What are your biggest goals and dreams that you want to achieve during these 6 months?.
Remember, this is an undated planner which gives you the opportunity to choose whichever month you want to journal and/or plan.
.
The next section helps you meditate a little bit on the things you want. For example, you can make a list of the things you are grateful for. A list of affirmations AND, you can also create a vision board. Now, If you are like me, your vision board must be a whiteboard located somewhere in your bedroom where you can see it every, single day. But, in here you can create a second one and take it with you on the go. It will help you stay focus on the things you want and why.
.
The planner is divided into 3 sections. The Monthly section, the weekly section and, the daily section. Each one looks like that. It also gives you the opportunity to plan/journal accordingly. First plan your month then, break down your week and journal your daily routine. Kinda cool, don't you think?!.
.
This is the monthly overview. Choose the month you want to begin with and set some goals, personal and/or professional priorities and, extra notes.
.
After each month you'll get this section which is perfect. I believe this section of the planner helps you keep yourself accountable each month. For example, it asks if you manage or achieve any goal, learn or did something new. Is like your own accountability partner in your purse.
.
This is the weekly section. In here you can compare the goals reached the week before and/or incorporate them into the new one. You can also list things to do, things to avoid. Perfect to keep you accountable.
.
This is the daily section. This part of the planner is very complete. It gives you the opportunity to plan your day and even gives you a section to review the end of your day. Pretty cool.
.
This is the last part of the planner. The final review of the 6 months. In my opinion, this is the part where your own planner calls you out. The part where you realize if you were consistent or not. It also helps you analyze how can you do better the next 6 month and so.
.
At the very end, you have some notes pages. Lined and dotted.
.
As a bonus and part of the planner. It includes a sticker sheet and an expandable folder. You can place receipts, schedules or important documents in there.
.
Well, peeps, that's the 6 months, undated Lion Planner. You might want to get better in school, stay consistent on your workout routine or maybe try and be more productive with your business or office. This planner will definitely help you work on your short/long term goals while staying organized on with your daily routine.
I love the way how everything it's organized and divided by monthly(6month), weekly(27 weeks) and daily(182 days). And, the end of month or end of 6-month questions that help us reflect and take action to be more consistent.
If you are like me and you love to decorate your planner and personalize it with stickers and washi. This one doesn't have the same space as an Erin Condren but, you can definitely add a thing or two!!!.
