Daily Diary - Free Notion Template

This is a very simple and minimalistic daily journal template without the need for a database, therefore it's faster to load.

Duplicate the template to your Notion workspace from here: 

Adding new entries

First we have the Add a new entry template button. This will automatically create a journal entry page with the current date and time of creation included in the title.

Upon opening this page, you'll also find 3 boxes for you to write in, one for reflections - free writing, and the other 2 in a separate column to list the day's achievements and things that you're grateful for. 

You can of course add more prompts and callout boxes by clicking the ⚙️ button next to the "Add a new journal entry" button to edit the template page.

Archive system

No database? No problem. Here you have a page for each year and each month to serve as your archives.

To create a new set of 12 months archives for next year, simply press the Add 12 months of archives template button for 12 pages designated to each month. 

  • When you're done with your journal entries, simply drag them to the corresponding month archive. 
  • When a month is done, drag that month to the corresponding year.

New Page template button with timestamp in the title - Notion

These days I'm all about discovering ways for people to use Notion  without  the use of databases, as databases slow things down. I'm also an advocate for minimalism while still having an efficient workflow. Today I'm giving a tip with an example of daily journal entries. Usually, a Notion template comes with a database for journal pages, with a "Date created" property which is mighty convenient. But you can also replicate that without a database.  This will make it super fast for you to start journaling on a new page with the current date and time already added to the title. Create a simple text page where all your journal entries will be stored (no databases/tables). Optional: You may create a subpage to serve as an Archive for past entries. Again this should be a simple text page, not a database. You may also have multiple archives, named after the 12 months or years to keep things more organized. Type / , then template , then select the Template button . Give
