Are you looking for a way to better organize your time? Do you need a block schedule builder that can help you manage your days more effectively? If so, then this blog post is for you! In today’s post, we will be discussing the different ways to use a block schedule builder and we will also be providing a free printable block schedule template for you to use. So, if you are ready to start getting more done each day, keep reading! As you launch and build your handmade business, you have a lot of priorities vying for your attention. It’s easy to get so overwhelmed by trying to do everything that you end up doing nothing. Today, I’m going to introduce you to one of my favorite planning tools that will allow you to carve out time for each of your many responsibilities.
How to build your block schedule:
- First, claim your block planner tool by entering your email below. I’ll send you a printable PDF (I like to use this version on my iPad with my stylus and the good notes app) as well as a Canva template that you can edit. On a separate sheet of paper, jot down any tasks you need to complete each week. If any of those activities happen at a set time, jot that down too.
- Next, Gather up a few colors of pens or markers. (This step is optional, but I like to color-code my schedule for ease of use). Assign one color to each main area you need to schedule (work, family life, sports, church, whatever takes up regular blocks of your time). Once you have your writing utensils, mark off any set times where weekly obligations take place (practice, meetings, etc.).
- Now, review the remaining activities on your list and schedule them in your remaining blocks. It may seem silly, but don’t forget to block off time for meals, rest, entertainment, family time, and chores. It’s so easy to fill every moment of the day with work – don’t forget to prioritize the things that feed your mental health too!
- Post your schedule in a place where you can see it, and check off each task as you accomplish it. Over time, you’ll build routines and you won’t need to refer to the schedule as often, but don’t skip this step when you start out! The satisfaction of checking items off your list is a huge motivator, even when the tasks are simple.
Tips for success
Don’t be afraid to change up your planner! You can start from scratch each week, reuse your schedule repeatedly, or somewhere in the middle. Be patient with yourself as you build this new routine, and if something isn’t working rearrange your schedule weekly until you find the right fit.
Now that you know HOW to do it, all that’s left is to DO IT! Grab your free scheduler and get started now:
