A calendar is a basic yet invaluable tool for scheduling appointments, planning events, and organizing tasks. Whether you prefer a traditional wall calendar, a detailed planner, or an online tool, calendars can help you balance work and personal schedules, prioritize responsibilities, and reach short- or long-term goals.

To help you save time in planning your week, you can download our free and reusable weekly calendars below. Template options provided include Microsoft Excel and Word, PDF, and Google Docs. Each template is professionally designed and can easily be customized to suit your specific needs. Create a weekly calendar printout if you want a hard copy, or save the template file to your desktop or mobile device and share it with a work team or family members.

Time Management Tips

A calendar may alleviate stress by getting your to-do list out of your head and organized onto a page, but it can also be overwhelming if you simply cram every minute of your schedule with tasks. As you plan your weekly calendar, consider these tips for creating a sustainable and balanced schedule:

  • Prioritize Tasks: Scheduling tasks based on priority applies to work, family, and personal endeavors. If you have a busy schedule, identifying high-priority items can provide structure to your daily and weekly planning. Prioritizing the activities and meetings in your week is key to achieving goals and ensuring you don’t overlook important items.
  • Schedule Downtime: Certain tasks have to get done, which is why it is wise to schedule higher-priority items first. But a strong case can be made for the importance of setting aside personal time for refueling. Scheduling time in your calendar for a short coffee break, a weekly massage, evening time with your family, or an annual vacation can help ensure you get the downtime you need.
  • Practice Flexibility: Even the most detailed plan can get derailed by issues at work or getting the flu. As you plan your calendar, keep contingencies in mind so that you are more prepared to deal with unexpected events if they arise. This may mean scheduling extra time for a project to deal with potential delays or simply adapting your schedule as work moves along. Breaking down weekly and monthly plans can help keep long-term goals in mind while allowing you to assess your short-term plan each week.
