Unsplash + Notion

Get organized with this all-in-one workspace, so you can focus on the fun stuff.

Picture an average morning in the office: Check your Slack notifications. Move on to your emails. Open up the 7 Google Docs you’re working on. Search your desk for that piece of scrap paper with all of your meeting notes from the day before. Edit that daunting Excel Spreadsheet. Respond to more emails. Repeat.

If that sounds familiar, (sadly) you’re not alone. The reality is that it’s pretty easy to lose your morning because you’re busy hunting down that perfect to-do-list you’d jotted down in your email drafts somewhere the day before. Or maybe you’re just stuck staring at the 20 tabs you have open in horror.

Well, Notion is ready to change that.

They’ve created an all-in-one workspace where you can find everything you need to focus on what actually matters most: creating. Instead of getting bogged down by all the tools floating around on your desktop, Notion is reimagining your workflows so that your notes, tasks, wikis and databases are easy to find (because hint: they’re all together).

While the concept that everything you need is in one place may not sound revolutionary — take a look at how many tabs you have open right now and ask yourself if Notion is the simple solution to your lack of focus and productivity. Most likely, it is.

Notion’s got a few other features that make it easy for you to get stuff done in whatever way works for you. It syncs across all of your devices so you can access your information in your office, on your phone, or wherever else you may need them. Plus, Notion lets you collaborate with teammates in real time, or continue working on something offline — without the worry of losing all of your work (because that’s definitely happened to most of us, and it’s never fun).

Add Unsplash images to your Notion workspace

It became clear to us pretty quickly that a partnership between Notion and Unsplash just made sense. Plus, you all seemed to agree. You took to Twitter in record numbers to let us know how much the integration would help you stay inspired as you worked.

So without further ado, you can now access Unsplash’s library of over 950k beautiful, curated photos in Notion — for free. And as always, each photo links back to the photographer’s Unsplash profile so you can stay inspired by checking out the other photos they’ve created.

Whether you’re hoping to add a little life to your next to-do list or needing a few images to accompany some writing you’ve got on-the-go -all you have to do is bring in a beautiful image from Unsplash.
