After a year of slowing down and staying home in the name of communal safety, it’s safe to say that for most, 2021 is going to be the year of making plans. From friend brunches (now with three extra attendees) to family dinners, making up for a year of distance means your social calendar is likely to be full from the get go.
Not to mention the New Year goals you have undoubtedly set for yourself. Are you finally going to schedule those weekly spin classes to up your cardiovascular health, or is this the year to work through your anxiety in therapy? Do you want to set aside time to hit inbox 0 every Monday morning, or are you focused on building a stronger connection with your partner by penciling in a weekly date night?
Maybe you want to do it all this year. To stay on top of things and fully commit to the bountiful opportunities and experiences heading your way, turn to Vogue‘s selection of planners and agendas that are not only stylish, but will keep you organised all through 2021. The old adage is true after all—if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.
