The My Next 90 Days Daily Action Planner starts with self-reflection and self-care then returns to those themes continually. Each week you start by evaluating your to-do list, defining your priorities, and making a plan to work towards your goals.

What we love:
I really liked the format of this planner. The weekly planning exercise flowed well and didn’t seem too overwhelming. I also appreciated the acknowledgment that some task are tedious but necessary while others are exciting and move us to our goals. This planner hit the right balance between self-reflection and practicality for me. Plus it required minimal time investment to see a real change in the efficiency of my days.
I always have mixed feelings about a planner that doesn’t last for a whole year. For one thing, it increases the cost that you would spend for a year. More importantly to me though, most of us have plans for events several months out. I realized I tend to put those in my phone though and used this more to organize my days and weeks so it worked well for that. In the end, I think the 90 day format works because it is long enough to create new habits without feeling too overwhelming.
What we didn’t:
This is purely personal preference but I didn’t care for the blank inspiration pages. I’m not artistic enough in that way so those are anxiety provoking for me. If you like to draw, collage or bullet journal, you will enjoy those sections.
I really liked this planner and I think it would be a great tool for anyone wanting to focus on creating new habits and a life influenced by their personal values.

Many therapists enjoy recommending books to their clients to supplement the work they are doing together. We also use books to help ourselves grow as people and practitioners. Remember though that books are never a replacement for real human connection or for therapy when it’s needed. If you find yourself needing a therapist, a great place to start is Psychology Today.
