Calendars And Diaries
A calendar marks out periods of time into days, weeks and months and often shows a schedule of events. It is usually hung on the wall, as a reminder of what is to come. Calendars may be:
- business related, such as a marketing calendar of events to be advertised;
- professional related, such as a calendar of training courses, or client events; or,
- personal, such as a calendar of school events or birthdays and anniversaries.
Difference Between A Calendar And A Diary
There is not necessarily a great deal of difference. A calendar is often displayed on a wall, to provide a visual record of upcoming events (or on a computer, of course), while a diary is often thought of more as a daily log, with details that are not normally included in a calendar. Personal diaries often have records of daily happenings, recorded in the evening as a memory of the day just past, people met and things discussed. Diaries can be desk diaries (larger) or may be pocket (or bag) diaries which are small enough to slip into a bag or pocket and which act as a reminder of appointments and possibly useful addresses and telephone numbers. Of course, these can also be included on smartphones.
Planners can be big ones that sit on the desk or slightly smaller ones that fit into a briefcase. These are not usually small enough for a pocket or bag as they include not only a calendar of days but also other pages, such as business aims and goals, project timetables and notes, records of mileage and expenditure as well as addresses and phone numbers. These are still calendars or diaries however, they have additions that make them useful for keeping all business records and ideas in one place for easy and continuous access.
These are calendars or diaries or planners that have coloring pages in them or coloring borders around the edges, to give you some relaxation time, while consulting or completing your calendar. You can create or buy coloring calendar pages and add them together, to create your own coloring calendar that suits your own style of working.
There are, of course, different types of coloring calendars, some are for children and you can also buy or create a coloring calendar for adults. You could also create a short calendar for different times of the year, such as a spring, summer, autumn or winter calendar, each covering three months. Another idea is to create your own coloring advent calendar for those exciting days leading up to Christmas.
