The Best Types of Habits to Track – Part 1

The Next Level Daily Planner has a built-in habit tracker designed to help you better understand how you live your daily life. Tracking habits can help you establish good habits while seeking to get rid of those you aren't so fond of. We think habit tracking is a fantastic tool for self-improvement.   In light of that, we began wondering what types of habits our customers would want to track. Needless to say, we couldn't stop at just a few. So we have put together a series of two blog posts covering a full range of categories. This is the first of the series.   Type #1: Fitness Habits   We will start with fitness habits simply because this is...

Daily Planner, Daily Journal, or Both – What's Best?

If you are a big fan of our high-performance planner, chances are you are not the type of person who likes to be put into a box. You probably don't appreciate the one-size-fits-all approach to anything. So that being the case, do not stress over trying to figure out whether to use a daily planner, daily journal, or both.

There are times in our lives when we are faced with the decision of whether to buy something we don't really need. For some people, the conundrum can be overwhelming. We get it. We also get the fact that there are also times when investing in something you do not really need turns out to be a good thing.

Anyone who wants to journal can use a cheap notebook from the local department store. Even pieces of scrap paper will do the trick. So why spend money on a designer journal like ours? Motivation.   Journaling is good...
