Without calendars, let’s face it, we’d be lost! It would be difficult to remember the date of our next appointment, some business that needs to be taken care of or the birthdays of the important people in our life. Did you know that 88% of people reference their calendars at least once a day? (1) It’s something we can easily grab and reference what’s going on in a busy day, keeps us accountable and helps track our goals.
Let’s go over why using a calendar is so important, and four ways it’ll provide daily benefits!
1 – Less Distraction
In this digital age, that we’re all a part of, becoming distracted is a daily struggle. With so many dings, pop ups, buzzes it’s hard to ignore the constant slough of incoming content. Studies have found that too much screen time also negatively impacts your brain, so the idea of journaling via phone seems fine and convenient, but nevertheless adds to the problem.
Taking a minute to plan your week on paper lets your eyes rest for a while, as well as clears your head from that abundance of information we receive on a daily basis.
2 – Remember Events Better
It’s been said that the more you write things down, the better recall you’ll have of it. Think back to college, those long study night, how many of you wrote the same notes over and over? Paper calendars can help with this! When you have to write down meetings and other important appointments you’ll be more likely to remember them. It can also help bring to mind other significant details about your schedule.
3 – Increased Motivation
Struggling with motivation? We all find ourselves in this spot sooner or later. Having a calendar filled out with tasks is a great way to keep your productivity flowing!
Another use is to track the progress of your goals. There’s nothing quite as motivating as seeing your results. Once you break your goal down and focus on achieving it, you’ll start to make progress. Develop a system to track and recognize your progress. Once you see that you are getting results, it will be one of the best motivators to keep going.
4 – Quick Visual Reminder
Hands-down the easiest way to remember any date, event, etc. is to have a visual reminder right in front of you. No matter if you’re working from home or back in the office, having a calendar located somewhere on your desk or pinned on your bulletin board will become your best friend in keeping all of your important dates organized at a quick glance!
