7 Best Notion Habit Tracker Templates in 2022

In this post, I will show you my 7 favorite Notion habit tracker templates.

According to bestseller author James Clear, habits are the smallest building blocks of our lives. They help us to navigate successfully through daily life.  In the end, all actions are built on habits.

Negative or positive.

If you want to change your life for the better,  you need to remove bad habits and replace them with positive habits.

Some examples:

  • Drinking water instead of soft drinks.
  • Reading a book, instead of scrolling through your phone before sleeping.
  • Cooking meals yourself, instead of ordering them online.

A study by University College London even showed in 2009 that we need an average of 66 days for implementing new habits. Once you have repeated an action often enough, it becomes natural for your brain and you donÄt require any willpower for doing it.

The challenge is to reach 66 days. For accomplishing that, tracking habits can make a huge difference.

The classic habit tracker is basically a spreadsheet on a piece of paper, but we live in the current year, so many people prefer digital solutions like Notion.

In this article, we’ll explain the following to you:

Why should you track your habits in Notion?

A lot of people question why habit-building is so important. Just think about it: When was the last time you did something because it is a habit? Probably not that long ago!

You wake up at a specific time, eat at a specific time, or relax at a specific time. All these examples are a result of habitual behavior. The only difference is that some habits need more introspection and intrinsic motivation to stay consistent.

Habits are a part of our daily lives, and our current lifestyle is a result of subtle habit-building over time. When we believe it’s hard to do a specific task. It takes a longer time to get there. A daily habit tracker could help you maintain your consistency.

The best part is that you don’t need to make one yourself because you have tons of templates available online!  They’re a great way to monitor progress as they help you input your progress every day with a simple click.

“You should be far more concerned with your current trajectory than with your current results.”

  • James Clear, author of Atomic Habits

Notion Templates are great because of the great flexibility offered by the app.

  1. As a Notion newbie, you can immediately import the template into your workspace and start tracking.
  2. As you become a more advanced user, the app allows customization to the way your brain works best.

This free habit tracker template consists of 2 databases:

  1. Habit Tracking Database
  2. Weekly Review Database

Use the first to track your habits and the second to get an overview of your performance via weekly reviews.

The whole template is easy to use and highly customizable. The tracking database consists of separate columns for different activities with tick boxes to check when you’re done. Check the box, or enter the data you want to track like sleep time or screen time.

This template is best suited for those who have to track multiple habits simultaneously. The Habits are a property in the tracker, which means you don’t have to code additional blocks for customization. You can just add another property and rename it to monitor a different habit.
