Start a new document in Notion. Select the table database as a starting point. Call it ‘5 Minute Journal’

Rename the first column ‘One-liner’ (to give a one-line for each entry) and delete the Tags and Files columns.

Add a Date column and a ‘Created’ column with the ‘Created Time’ Property type.

Add ‘Habits Completed’ with a multi-select type.

Delete two of the example entries and start editing the first one with some data. In Habits completed add a bunch of things you want to track. (You can select/deselect as many or as little as you want)

Open up the entry we created and create a template ‘Daily journal’.

Add a heading ‘Photo’ with an image block for uploading.

Add a heading ‘Morning’

Write “I am grateful for…” with a numbered list 1-3 and turn the text into a callout.

Write “What will I do to make today great?” with a numbered list 1-3 and turn the text into a callout.

Write “Daily affirmations, I am…” with a numbered list 1-3 and turn the text into a callout.

Add a heading ‘Night’

Write “3 amazing things that happened today…” with a numbered list 1-3 and turn the text into a callout.

Write “How could I have made today even better?” with a numbered list 1-3 and turn the text into a callout.

Go to our first entry, select the template and enter some data.

Add a calendar view, add habits completed properties to the card.

Add a board view ‘By Habits’

Add a gallery view and add the habits complete property too, and sort by descending.

We can also add a day of the week property so that in reviews we can see habits completed by days of the week.

Add a property (single select): Monday - Sunday

Now add a board view for Day of the week and make sure it’s grouped by day of the week.
