Digital Planning 101

digital planning to-do list on an ipad air 4.

 I’ve switched to the digital planning life and I’m not going back!

About 6 months ago I made the switch from pen and paper planning to digital and I have absolutely no regrets. I’ve always been a stationery lover. There is something special about writing on a real sheet of paper or using a hard-copy notepad, but the digital planning benefits completely outweigh the cons (at least in my opinion😉).
If you are wanting to make the switch to digital planning like I did but have no idea where to start, keep reading! I’ve curated a quick list of tips to get started.
  1. Invest in a compatible tablet and writing utensil!

First things first you must make sure your tablet and pencil are compatible with the Good Notes 5 app. For my own digital planning I use the iPad Air and the Apple Pencil 2nd Gen and these work perfectly!
  1. Download the Good Notes 5 app

The next step to start digitally planning is to download the Good Notes 5 app from your tablet’s app store. This is the best tool that I’ve found for digital planning and note taking! It has tons of great features that make it the best tool around.
  1. Purchase digital planning templates

Your next step is to download simple templates to make your switch to digital planning even easier! I sell several planning templates all for under $5 in my shop. If you’re a to-do list kinda gal, my mint green to-do list will be perfect for you. If you’re a fan of hourly planning, my hourly planner will be the best for you! I’ll be adding a variety of different planners to the shop over the next few weeks, so follow along on Instagram (@hayleywhitedesigns) to stay in the know.
  1. Begin planning!

Now that you have all completed all these steps you can start planning! Digital planning makes list making, planning, and brain dumping so much fun.
