About

Balance Planner is more than just a regular planner - it’s a powerful yet simple tool to help you create a balanced life and focus on what’s important. 

In just 5 minutes a day it will help you to plan your days smarter, achieve your goals faster and live a happier and more fulfilling life. 

 Balance Planner is based upon the idea that in order to be truly happy, you need to have balance between key areas of your life: work/study, self growth, body/health, relationships, friends/leisure and spirituality.

CREATING LIFE BALANCE IS THE KEY TO HAPPINESS.

Often you try to get balance in one area of your life or another - you focus on work, but lose touch with friends and family, or you focus on your social life, but forget about self-growth. And it all leads to feeling more stressed and unhappy. 

With the Balance planner you will manage your busy days while making space to do what you love, to chase your dreams and create balance.

                

Strike the perfect balance between work and personal life. Imagine achieving your biggest career goals while still having time to finally join that spin cycle class or finishing the book you've been reading for months!

Get crystal clear on YOUR dreams and goals. You are unique and so are your goals.You will get a clear vision on what YOU would love to accomplish and what brings YOU joy: is it spending more time with your loved ones, starting your own business or travel more?

Harness the power of gratitude for a happier you. Taking just a couple of minutes a day to write down the things you are grateful for will improve your overall happiness, mental health, relationships and career! It can even help you sleep better! No kidding, it was scientifically proven! *

Form new, positive habits. Want to start running in the morning but somehow snooze button always stands in the way? Habit tracker is there for you - never forget again to go for a morning run, to drink those 8 glasses of water or floss daily.

Work less and achieve more. Say goodbye to being constantly busy, but not seeing any progress! You will organize your week better by mindfully planning your time and tasks at hand.

* from the 2011 study published in Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being

Weekly pages include: daily schedule to keep you organised, to-do list based on "9 tasks a day" productivity principle, habit tracker that will help you to acquire and track positive habits and space for notes

Yes/no list - the list of things that make you feel energised and happy (yes!) and another one of those that drain your energy (no!)

With every Balance Full Set purchase we’re including two special gifts:

1. An erasable ink pen that will help you keep your planner so neat and tidy you’ll be proud to flip back through the pages!

2. Video Guide "How to use the Balance Planner to add more balance and happiness to your life". You will receive the simple tips on how to fill in the pages and do the exercises in the planner, how to set your monthly and weekly goals, and how to get the most out of the planner and out of your life!

Bullet journalling enthusiast? We got you covered! We made a dot grid insert that fits perfectly in our reusable leather cover.

It's super versatile: use it as a diary, travel or food journal, for note taking or studies.

Just add it to any of the Balance planner pledges. Here is how to do it:

1. Select your reward

2. In the pledge amount field manually add + US$15 (13 EUR) to the total amount

Example: You choose 1 Early Bird Balance Planner Full Set. Total amount of your pledge will be: US$35 (30 EUR) + US$8 (7 EUR) shipping cost + US$15 (13 EUR ) for add-on = US$58 (50 EUR) - the amount you need to put manually.

We know some of you might think: ”A paper planner in this day and age? Why not an app?"

We made a physical planner, because scientific studies* has proven you’re 42% more likely to achieve the goals you write on paper, rather than type on a screen!

And an extra bonus? There's also no running out of battery or getting distracted by the millions of notifications trying to take over your life!

Thank you so much for visiting our page! Your support means a lot to us, it's really a dream coming true! 

Balance Planner has made us so much more happy and organised. Try it yourself and you'll be surprised how such a simple thing can have such a big impact! 

Risks and challenges

We already have a trust worthy manufacturing factory and a shipment company that we have been working with over a year. We have also tested the Balance Planner through prototypes. Our test planners have withstood us using them daily - being thrown in our bags, left open, left closed, written in out and about.

We wouldn’t bring Balance Planner to Kickstarter if we weren’t confident that we can deliver on the project to all our backers.

The only challenge at this stage is bringing our amazing planner to a large audience. Which is why we need your support on Kickstarter!

We are overseeing every step of the process ourselves to ensure that you receive a quality planner that you can cherish for a long time. And we are just as excited as you are to get the Balance Planner in your hands ASAP!

We understand that sometimes challenges may pop up that are not always in our ability to control, but we promise to maintain full transparency and communicate with you if this happens. We are so excited to be able to be on this journey with you!
