Book reviews! Homeschooling! Here's how I use my Viviamo planners

I've been a Viviamo fan for years and years now. They call their products Dreampowerment because their planners help people make their dreams come true by empowering them with careful goal-setting and detailed planning. But lemme tell you that planners don't necessarily have to be a To Do list. Today, I wanted to share with you how I use mine. 

Viviamo's most popular planner is the Belle de Jour Power Planner, but since I'm more minimalist, I prefer the Essentials Planner and the Everything is Possible Planner. I make my own bullet journal for daily planning so here's how I use my Viviamos.

As a homeschooling planner

We're in our second year of homeschooling. Imagine that! Everything truly is possible!
Our schedule changes every quarter.
This is our student mantra. Mine, too, if we're being honest.
Projects for the kids!
And here is our schedule of lessons! It's divided into 4 rows - individual lesson plans for each of my 3 kids and then the bottom row is for the lessons we take together. It's full of correcting tape because we got derailed by our family's bout with COVID early this month so I had to adjust everything. 

As a place for my book reviews 

This is the simplest Viviamo planner and it's my favorite. It's the most versatile. I've used it as my work planner, my "Interesting Things I Learned This Week" journal, and now for my weekly book reviews!
I also use it to write down quotes from the books I read.
I also include the cover of the book! It's nakaka-pressure, though, because I already pasted all the covers every week this January and I feel rushed to finish my book of the week!
And this is this week's book. I just started! 

And that's how I use my Viviamo planners! 

I like how my friend, Viviamo CEO Darlyn Ty-Nilo, said, "COVID-19 has left many feeling displaced. ‘I’m stuck. What can I do? How do I move forward?’ The pandemic has affected us in so many ways, bringing up fear, worry, and even languishing. We, at Viviamo, want to reassure Filipinos that these feelings of hopelessness and despair can be replaced with hope and positivity. That is why we offer you the tools to help you switch from that mindset of ‘simply surviving’ to thriving! We have the power to rewrite our own stories." 

Power. Yes! I like the feeling of control that my planners give me. More than reminding me of what to do, they also make life feel a little less messy and a bit more laid out and peaceful. They symbolize my hope, you see, that I'm looking forward to tomorrow. They symbolize my audacity because I insist on my belief that I have a future, that my kids have a future even with the pandemic, even with the corruption around us. 

And good news: I have a Belle de Jour Power Planner 2022 here and I'm going to give it away tomorrow in my first giveaway in so long. can't wait to tell you all about my giveaway!!!
