Happy New Year! 

Firstly, thank you for supporting me last year - I started The Notion Bar as an experiment to see if people would be interested in 'lifestyle-based Notion content' and have been overwhelmed by the response!

Let's face it, 2020 was a less than ideal year for all of us (to put it lightly 😬. ). 

Whether we like it or not, the new year is here and many of us use this as an opportunity to reset our minds and goals. Here's a rundown of my favourite templates, part of my full gallery at to give you a kickstart
