Yearly Planning with Zinia

Hello everyone and happy new year! It’s Zinia here and today I’d like to talk to you about planning!

When you think about planning, usually the first thing that comes in mind are calendars and super structured schedules. All these are great if they are your cup of tea but planning is not only about that. In my planner I always like to keep notebooks that I use for other purposes.

So with the new year starting I felt it’s the perfect time to try and improve some positive habits. Of course I had to keep track of everything in my planner so I created a spread dedicated to that purpose.


In the center of the page I created a circle tracker using the amazing Journal Guide by WeR Memory Keepers. This is my absolute favorite tool these days cause it helps me create every shape I need in my journal.


I used different colors of fineliner pens by Kelly Creates to track each of the habits.


I’m a visual person so bold graphics and bright colors always catch my attention. That’s why I decided to decorate the rest of this spread with quote ephemera and stickers to stay inspired and motivated.

This is an optional step but it’s definitely much more appealing to look to a fun and colorful page than to check boxes with a black ballpoint pen.


I’d really encourage you to keep track of any habits you wish to improve this year cause it really helps you stay accountable. Filling those colorful boxes every day I succeed on my plan is extremely satisfying and fulfilling.
