Make sure your doc is pristine. Perfect. That you've used based styles,
that no styles are based on or followed by Normal (style), and that
everything is exactly the way you want. Verify your page layout, margins,
and headers and footers.

Then save it as a template.

You can remove the content, replace it with text that explains why the
style is used, or leave the content. If the template will only ever be
assigned to other docs, then it doesn't matter what the content is.
