Personal Care Made Easy

When it comes to personal care, that can encompass a LOT. What you decide to do, you need to keep track of. From making appointments to actually remembering when you did those appointments last. You need easy personal care.

So, what does that entail?

Personal Care Routines

Before I share how to make your personal care easier to manage, let’s take a look at some of the common personal care routines you may be doing.

DIY Self Care

  • Hair Care Treatments
  • Skin Care Treatments (Sheet Masks, Mud Masks, Facial, Scrubs, Peels etc)
  • Mani/Pedi’s
  • Under Eye Care

Professional Self Care

  • Medical/Optical/Dental Appointments
  • Spa Visits
  • Dermatology/Esthetician Visits

The list of personal care treatments and services can get exhaustive. It doesn’t matter if you opt to DIY or get them done professionally. The one way to make your personal care easy is to be organized with it. Yes, that’s right. Have it all written down.

The human brain can only remember 7 things at once

Keeping Track of Your Personal Care

You can opt to keep track using a digital planner or a paper planner. You can also do both.

I prefer a paper planner for every area of my life because it helps me to be more “in touch” with my life. After a while, those digital reminders can become desensitizing.

Digital reminders definitely have some benefit though. When you are on the go and don’t want to carry a large paper planner, a digital version can help you keep track of any changes that may take place.

However, if you want to really focus on your personal care, writing things down will help you keep them front and center. Then, if you want to schedule or put reminders in your electronic device to actually look at your planner, you can do that as well.

My favorite planner is the disc bound planner because it allows for you to take pages in and out of the planner, move things around etc.

Customizing Your Personal Care Planner

You can also customize disc bound planners by adding inserts.

I love planners from The Happy Planner and I customize mine with various inserts. Some I buy from others but I also create ones when I don’t find what I like.

This led to the opening of Mighty Fine Printables (jazzy right?)

The printable planner inserts created to help you with easy personal care are as follows:
