I have been sharing bits and pieces of my 2019 planner lineup all month long. I am pleased with system I have and place and each planner I’m using serves a specific purpose. My wellness planner, aside from my bullet journal, is the only other planner I use on a daily basis. Both my budget and business planner I’ll reference weekly. This post is all about how I set up my wellness planner and how I plan on using it.

Planner I’m Using
I am using the 2019 mini Happy Planner, Faith Edition. The quote on the cover says
Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.
I was happy to receive it as a prize when I attended a tricky tray last year. I knew what I wanted to use it for and so far, so good.
Why a Wellness Planner
I wanted to have a central location for all things wellness. For me that includes mind body and soul. I’ve had a faith planner before (Horacio Printing), but that had a vertical layout. Horizontal worked better for what I wanted to use it for.
The best thing about the discbound system is being able to turn it into a versatile, flexible binder. I didn’t want to have separate notebooks for this and that when I could combine them into one category and one notebook.
How I Plan On Using It
I’ve started using the calendar and weekly pages as a daily devotional. I also plan on adding notes/reflection in regards to mental health. this is also a great place for me to have all notes on positive podcasts I’m listening to and books I’m reading.
Current Faith Reading
The book that I am currently reading is What on Earth Am I Here For: The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. The layout is broken into 42 days and I use the readings as a daily devotional. I am reading it along with my grandmother on a daily basis and it’s such a fascinating book. I’m glad I added it to my reading list for 2019. Most importantly, it’s not only inspirational, but it’s changing my perspective on life and adding clarity to my walk in faith.
I laid out each day of the book throughout the monthly pages. On the weekly pages, I wrote my notes for each of the days. I did end up disregarding the dates and putting Day 1, 2, etc. Within that space I would write what stood out to me the most. If there was more I wanted to write down, I just add a piece of paper in between that weekly spread.
What I Plan to Add
When I first stared my reading, I thought the weekly pages would simply suffice for me to jot down my notes from that particular day. Wrong! This book in particular resonates with me so much that I write down lengthy passages. With that being said, I needed to add the following:
- Filler paper
- Larger Discs
The filler paper specifically meant for the mini Happy Planner works great. The dividers allows me to separate my different sections with ease without bulking up the planner too much.
