Taylor, Whimsy Soul’s editor, has been singing Notion’s praises for ages but it took a few TikTok girlies to convince me to finally try it out.
And let me tell you – where the HECK has Notion been all my life? I’ve gone through all the day planners, list tools and other trackers for work. We use Asana to manage our content calendar but I needed a way better personal tracker hub that has everything I need to remember all in one place.
That’s what my beautiful Notion dashboard does for me now and my life is 1000% more organized. If you’re also looking for the best aesthetic notion templates to use to organize your life, these are the ones I think are worth downloading (free templates and paid ones!)
How To Use Notion For Everything
Here’s the thing: Notion has a learning curve and I want to make that clear up front. It takes a beat to understand the platform and how to make it work for YOU.
That’s why I think everyone should be starting off with a pre-made notion theme / templates so they can skip the hard parts and get right into using the tool.
Notion can be customized any way you want it. Seriously. Colors, toggles, pages, list styles, tables, there’s even widgets you can add for things like weather or moon phases.
If you want to dig into how to use all the features of Notion, I recommend watching a few YouTube videos, or just downloading one of these aesthetic templates and playing around.
All The Things You Can Use Notion For
This list is honestly endless and the important part is that you use the notion for YOUR needs. But, here’s some ways you can use the platform:
- A life planner
- Meetings notes
- Class lecture notes
- Project management
- Recipe tracker
- Meal planning
- Grocery lists
- Bullet journals
- Habit tracker
- Personal growth planner
- Goal tracker
- Home renovation tracker (I’m doing this for our cabin!)
- Travel planner
- To-do lists
These are just some of the many notion setup ideas you can use!
