Planning and Crafting as Self-Care and the Inside Scoop on the Planner Conference and Community with Rege

planning podcast self care Mar 27, 2019

This week I talk to my college roommate, Rege, who has a lot to say about planning! Yes, I mean like the kind of planning that encourages stickers and washi tape. Not sure what washi tape is? By the end of this episode you might want to *invest* in some. She leads the life of a Policy Analyst by day in a bedazzled cubicle and breaks up the boring cub life with crafts and hockey. We dive into the world of planning, crafting, and how self-care doesn't always have to be a bubble bath and a glass of wine (though we believe in those too). If you asked Rege, she would say that planners save lives and it's totally cool to have a side hustle that doesn't turn into your career. She keeps it real, dive on in.


In this episode, we talk about:

  • The evolution of the planning community
  • How planners reduce anxiety
  • Planning as a creative outlet
  • Bring back pen and paper and the millennial gen
  • Downfall of technology
  • Using a side biz and crafting as a way to create healthy habits
  • Planning as self-care
  • The down low about washi tape
  • The scoop on the Chicago planner conference
  • What to expect at a planner conference
  • Hockey, planners, and crafting do mix
