Q: How did you first discover Notion, and what drew you to it?

A: In 2022, I found myself on a quest for a tool to organize my laboratory projects. As luck would have it, I stumbled upon Notion. The novelty of using it as a virtual lab book, noting down my inventive experiments, was exhilarating! That love affair soon expanded beyond the professional realm and into my private life as well.

Q: How does Notion enhance your productivity?

A: It’s a game-changer! Notion has turbocharged my productivity by providing a structure to my projects and tasks. It’s a system I’ve custom-built according to my needs.

Q: Now, let’s navigate towards your journey as a creator. What was the spark that ignited your passion for creating Notion templates, specifically for health and well-being?

A: There’s something magical about bringing an idea to life, and Notion facilitated this creative instinct in me. Once I got the hang of it, I was enthralled, continuously designing my own pages and dashboards. The blend of my academic training as a nutritional scientist and my personal experiences with mental health nudged me towards creating templates that focused on physical and mental health.

Q: Could you give us a sneak peek into your process while designing these templates?

A: The fundamental mantra of my design approach is empathy. I aim to weave solutions for problems that people encounter in their day-to-day lives. I step into my customers’ shoes, envisage the features I’d want, the aesthetics, the ease of use, and then I endeavor to create the template to align with these expectations.

Q: I find your process really intriguing, can you guide us through the creation process of one of your templates, from the initial spark of an idea to the final touch-ups?

A: Ah, my process, well, it’s a bit of a wild ride!

Typically, I’d just immerse myself into the building process, letting the idea shape itself as I go along. It can be a labyrinth of trial and error and time-consuming adjustments.

For my future endeavors, I plan to chalk out the small steps beforehand. I want to visualize the final product in advance, identifying the features, the pricing model, the interconnected databases, and then leap into building it. Designing the layout follows suit.

One lesson learned the hard way is the importance of a testing phase. I now invite fellow creators to critique the functionality, user-friendliness, and aesthetics of the product.

Q: What have been some of the most challenging aspects of creating Notion templates?

A: My Achilles heel was simplicity. I’ve always had a fascination for complex databases, often leading to over-complication. But I believe I’ve managed to tame that penchant quite well now.

Q: Could you share one Notion template that holds a special place in your heart?

A: It’s quite a tricky question! I’ve invested quite a lot into my Health&Happiness template (Editor´s note: Recently revamped, check it out!).

Although, my Food Diary generates the most sales. For personal use, the Mindful Moments and Successful Blueprint templates come in quite handy.

Q: Could you give us a glimpse into a day in your life?

A: I start my day early, lacing up for a run every alternate morning. After refueling with a hearty breakfast and coffee, I dive into my projects. I work solo, often multitasking with lunch on the side. Once I sign off, I indulge in quality time with my boyfriend or socialize with our friends.

Q: What’s your secret to staying motivated and maintaining a healthy lifestyle?

A: The euphoria I feel after being active and healthy is my motivation. I might huff and puff during a run, but the post-run high is incomparable. Plus, I’ve never taken to unhealthy habits like smoking or heavy drinking, which aids in staying healthy. Sweets, however, are my kryptonite!

Q: When you need to unwind or destress, what’s your go-to activity?

A: Mother nature is my sanctuary. Be it hiking, cycling, swimming, or occasional runs, I cherish every bit of it. And yes, yoga does wonders too!

Q: What’s next for you in the realm of Notion template creation?

A: Creating Notion templates has been an exhilarating journey, and I’m excited to continue! I’m also eager to delve into the world of custom-made templates and possibly venture into Notion consulting.
