How To Fill In Your Calendar

 Once you decide on a calendar you like, it’s then time to fill it out starting with the big picture of your year and then diving into the daily details.

Start by filling in the year’s major events, such as holidays, birthdays, and vacations you have already planned.

Once you have your year’s big milestones mapped out, you can move on to filling out your activities month-by-month. Fill out whatever you do on a regular basis and any events for the month that you have on hand.

Start with regular recurring events such as book club or monthly meetings for an organization you belong to. Then schedule your extracurricular activities such as exercise classes, soccer practice, any additional activities with multiple dates attached.

Next add in your appointments, like trips to the doctor, the dentist, or the hair salon.

Once you have mastered your month, it is time to look at your weeks. Break our your weekly schedule for work or school and weekly household errands and tasks.

Finally, you are on to the daily details. Record your day-day routines for work, exercise, chores and more to make your days run more smoothly.

Calendars take regular maintenance to keep you on track. Whenever you get a schedule or make an appointment, it should go on your calendar. Keep your calendar close by, and make it fun and easy to use. The more you use your calendar, the more on top of things you’ll be.
