Stigu Planner Review and Double Giveaway

Stigu Planner in use with stickers and notes

I have never been a massively organised person. I get by in a kind of chaotic whirlwind of important pieces of paper, mostly filed under the system of ‘piles of stuff’. When I was a teacher, my planner was the only thing that kept me on the straight and narrow. I had been feeling the absence of a planner to keep me in line quite keenly. When Stigu contacted me to ask me to try out their 2017 Stigu Planner range, I was thrilled.

With Stigu, you get more than just a planner. As well as being a yearly organiser, a calendar, a to-do pad, and a notebook, a Stigu planner is also a sanity-saving rest and zest handbook, all in one. Stigu products aim to help even the busiest jugglers get organised but they also prioritise rest and well-being. Each day, you are given helpful hints and steps to become a less-stressed, more rested you.

In addition, the Stigu Planner is beautifully designed to include quirky illustrations and cartoons. Planner bundles also come with gorgeous, colour-coordinated stickers which add another element of fun to your organising efforts. They are the perfect balance between fun and functionality.

Stigu Planner – Verdict

Stigu Planners are full of lovely little touches that make the planning experience fun and creative. There is a pocket at the back for small loose documents. I loved the fact that each page comes with a perforated, tear-off corner, allowing you to find your place in the year easily. This would have been so helpful during my teacher years. I am sure lots of teachers will be all too familiar with the pain of turning over corners and taking scissors to the corners of pages every few months in order to keep your place. The tear-off corners are a little, unobtrusive touch that just make life a little less stressful.

The planner has plenty of room – both on the daily schedule and the notes and calendar pages. Personally, I could use some timings on the weekly sections, rather than five blank boxes per day, to make it easier to visualise what is happening when, but this is personal taste.

Mindfulness

Even though I suffer from anxiety, I am not very good at practising mindful techniques like the breathing and relaxation exercises suggested by the Zest and Rest sections. However, the planner has certainly made me more aware of this and I am keen to try out the suggestions as the year progresses. The inspirational quotes and thoughts on each page are definitely uplifting and positive. Even if you don’t think such positive messages will filter into your subconscious, you will be surprised how just a sentence can genuinely improve your mood. One snippet of wisdom that stood out to me is:

“Stigu gives you a license to rest – and absolves you of all guilt.”

Overall, if you are looking for a planner, either for a gift or for yourself, I think Stigu are a great choice. They would particularly good for anyone seeking to purchase them for a workforce. They convey the idea that taking care of yourself is valued as much as hard work is.

    I’m a plannergirl who suffers with anxiety and depression and it helps a lot to write stuff down and to keep organised. I love decorating my planners so it’s very handy that this is a double giveaway and you get the stickers too. I love my stickers lol

    I really need a new planner! With 4 kids, a full time job, and a full blogging schedule if I don’t write things done then I’m lost. I have yet to find one I want to commit to this year! Happy Sunday!

    Stigu can help me become more organised and rested by letting me plan my days effectively and keep to a schedule for tasks and reminders, so I will not get behind on my work and ensure I have enough sleep

    I have been eyeing a Stigu planner for a while now! They look super helpful, this is amazing giveaway. There’s so much within the planner that I believe will help me to be even more organised! I love how it’s laid out, along with the inspirational quotes and thoughts.

    I would be able to colour code all our activities and be able to keep on top of everything, instead of lying in bed worrying that I have forgotten something

    I love planners and the Stigu excites me as it looks a lot of fun. Love the fact it contains quotes and has sections to encourage you to rest as well as stay organised.

    This would be a God send! I am starting back work after 10 months maternity so I need some serious organisation to balance worklife and Mummy life! 🙂

    I would love to have this planner! It looks so pretty.
    I can only stay organised with planners and mine just expired. Seems like I am just getting more busy everyday and take no time for me. I love that this planner makes you remember to take care of yourself too.

    My husband has a huge number of hospital appointments for 2017 and as we both work a planner would enable me to make sure we are both organised.

    I have promised myself I am not going to have a year like last year. Everything was chaotic and I was so stressed and frustrated. I really really want to be able to be on top of things. (This may help!)

    I’m constantly panicking about appointments and stuff I’ve said I’ll do with friends – I need to remember and keep with it lol!!!

    I’m rubbish at keeping a planner or diary and the emptiness if a new planner can stress me out a bit. I love how this planner is set out and think I’d have less anxiety filling it with things to help me be organised.

    My new years resolution is to overcome my agoraphobia. A planner would help me keep note of my progress and see how im coming along. Little steps x

    All those pre-designed labels and stickers aswell as the exceptionally well laid out notepads would bring order to the chaos that is my life at the minute. I feel like I’ve started 2017 in fast forward/double speed? 😉

    This would help me organise all my appointments, I care for my mum who has a lot of health problems so we have a lot of appointments to attend

    I know I’m more organised when I have a planner, so just knowing I have one I can bring with me to jot everything down in would be FAB!

    This is exactly what I need in my crazy, disorganised & chaotic life! My New Years Resolution this year was to become more organised….I’ll probably start in February 😂 I think a planner like this will keep me on track and motivated to be organised and get my life together! Xo

    I’m a visual person so think this style of planner would help me enormously! I think it’s a brilliant idea to include the wellness/mindful tips too – that always seems to be something I read up on when procrastinating as something good to do but not as a daily priority, when it really should be. As my friend says ‘you need to look after yourself in order to keep all your plates spinning, otherwise it all comes crashing down’

    It would become my new best friend! A reminder service so that I can let go of all the lists and jumbled notes on the fridge door!

    I have lots of doctors and counselling appointments and many others so this would help me out loads keeping me organised and reminding me on 🙂

    Having a lovely planner like this to jot down appointment times, birthdays etc would really help me to stay organised. I have a lot going on at the moment and I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. This would definitely help me to feel more relaxed and stop me from worrying that I might have forgotten something 🙂 x

    I love these planners! I’ve seen lots of bloggers recommend them and I can certainly see why. As well as being very pretty (and I love the stickers!), they are so practical. I love that they have daily schedule pages as well as planning and list making areas, I’d be much more organised if I could keep everything together like this! #KCACOLS

    Stigu could help me get organised and rested by removing the pressure of having to remember things because it’s written down, and make sure I factor in things for my well being as well as all the tasks that have to be done! (love the “me time” bit :))
