What can I use instead of a spreadsheet for my personal journals?

I keep a personal journal, of the "stuff that happened today" variety. It's a long org-mode file. I also keep a Google Sheets spreadsheet journal, which records things like how much sleep I get each day, whether I was sick, and whether I had caffeine. Is there any way to combine these? I like using a spreadsheet so I can do things like calculate averages over time, my regular journal entries are often several paragraphs long and would be awkward to put into a spreadsheet. I've read that it's bad practice to use spreadsheets when what you really need is a database. But I don't know anything about databases. I'm using Android / Chromebook / Linux.
