Why Everyone Needs a Diary in their Life


Okay, so I have a confession to make…I’m a teeny bit obsessed with notebooks! 

Naturally, getting a diary was just the next step. I did have a diary when I was about 13 and I used to write in it every night before bed like it was a little narrative story (think Tracey Beaker or even Bridget Jones but with a Scouse accent). 

 However, the diary I own today is more of a day to day organiser. It’s something which keeps me motivated and on schedule with all the little tasks I have to do throughout the day, whether that be buy toothpaste or upload a blog post (brain like a sieve at times!) The diary I own now is more grown up than any of the others I’ve owned and it was a tenner from WH Smith. Bargain!

When it comes to blogging, this diary is my saviour. I use it to plan out my blogs everyday and usually have a few notes running down the page to help me when it comes to photo taking or writing. 

With juggling a job and blogging the diary has never been more useful. I often leave notes that I need for work aswell using my diary like a lifeline. 

I normally sit down with it every Sunday evening and plan out my week ahead (this is also really useful for my Monday Blogs) I plan out my time bearing in mind my working hours at the office and my blogging duties then fit in my gym sessions around any other time. 

Another use for my diary is as a meal planner, it pays to plan what meals me and the boyfriend are going to eat as it quickly ends that after work six o’clock discussion where neither of you can decide what to have! 

So I urge anyone whose struggling to juggle life at the moment, buy a diary and change your life!
