Journaling is a judgment free zone to write about who you are and the things that are important to you. Putting thoughts and ideas on paper helps create a deeper self awareness and a mindset of clarity.
A Miracle Morning includes scribing (daily journaling) and an easy way to create a daily journaling habit is by having pre-written prompts. The prompts are great for inspiration especially for those times when you sit and stare at the empty pages of your journal and your mind draws a blank.
We’ve talked about the amazing benefits of journaling for overall health and wellbeing along with how and why to incorporate journaling into a daily ritual. Now, to inspire you to create a daily journaling habit I will share monthly journaling prompts. It’s up to you, use one, two, or all of the prompts to write daily and reap the benefits. Your creativity may even be sparked to write your own.
And, if nothing else, a daily journaling habit gives us a brief break from the go go go of the day. A moment to just be. I don’t know about you, but I think that sounds heavenly.
Every month, I’ll share prompts that will help you:
- Create a journaling habit
- Live with more intention
- Let go of the things that don’t serve you
- Stay connected with what is most important in your life
- Create new habits
- Inspire creativity
- Practice conscious gratitude
- Find a greater sense of wellbeing
- Create clarity in your life
- Tune into your intuition and gain insight about yourself
There is something appealing about the freedom of thought and expression without rules, expectations or judgement.

I’m an avid journaler and a huge fan of journal writing, these helps me to discover more about myself.
Journaling prompts are so helpful. Not only do they get your thinking, but also steer you in a helpful direction. I find them most helpful on days when I have too much to say and don’t know where to start.
I haven’t owned a journal since I was a child, but I have been thinking about getting one. I agree that it would be a great inspiration to joy and self-discovery.
I find that writing daily is a very stress relieving activity and is a good way to put all of my thoughts into one activity I enjoy.
These are awesome questions to answer each day. I thought of journaling but the thought of someone going through my journal stops me. Maybe doing it online is a better option.
I used to journal so much when I was younger and before I had kids. Sadly it has fallen by the wayside lately. I think this has inspired me to get back into it though!
I definitely need to save this list! What a great idea of prompts to write. I would love to journal more than I used to.
I love the idea of getting in touch with yourself through daily journaling, and the writing prompts are icing on the cake. I just spoke to mom the other day to start doing this in the morning to let go of some past hurts and get all of her feelings out – this sounds like the perfect way to do it. Also, using this to spark your own creativity and get organized with your thoughts sounds fantastic. Love your free journaling prompts and calendar – Thanks so much for sharing these tools!
journaling is so goood for my soul…i just need to be more consistent 🙂
I always want to journal but I honestly wonder what people will think of me if they ever get ahold of it. Maybe old habits from childhood when I felt like nothing was off limits to prying eyes.
I love that you provided journaling prompts! I want to get in the habit of journaling and this makes it so much easier when I have an idea to write about.
I definitely need to pick up journaling again! I’m getting into the Miracle Morning right now, and my scribing is usually my devotional, but I would love to commit some time to more in-depth journaling for self-discovery.
I love the idea of journaling, and having something that you can look back at some highlights of your life. Every time I start one, I never end up keeping up with it. Definitely need to get better at it! Love your printable and the idea of promptings.
I’ve always struggled with journaling. Seems like I can’t keep the habit going. I love the idea of the prompts. Definitely see the benefit of them.
I love these two questions
What makes me feel empowered?
Who inspires me?
I love your printable too. I don’t fully journal everyday but I have a list of things I like to check off for every day and do. Having that list has made a huge difference in my life.
I haven’t kept a journal since I was a teenager and kept a diary. I should get back into it. My grandma writes in her journal every day…she even writes down the temperature outside 🙂 She keeps all her journals too, but I don’t think she ever goes back and reads them.
I love what you’re doing, Jill. It really helps those who are looking to improve their relationship with themselves.
This is a great idea, when I’d had my accident ( I was hit by a drunk driver ) and was stuck at home writing was my one outlet that kept me sane.
I used to journal all the time as a teen and young adult but haven’t in a very long time. Something I really would like to get back in the habit of doing.
Oh I love this! These are great!! Writing in my journal is part of my daily routine, sometimes it’s creative, sometimes it’s just a brain dump, anything to just get some words out, after all, I am a writer!
Wow I love this! I m very interested in journalling but I never know what to write. These prompts are amazing. Thank you!
I don’t journal, and never been one to keep a diary for longer than a month, growing up. My oldest daughter though is the complete opposite. I’ll have to share this with her.
What a great idea! I think this could help so many people. Love the variety of these prompts.
I definitely need to start journaling. There is so much value in it. These prompts are a great start!
Love this!! Can’t wait to see all to come!
These are awesome prompts! I need to incorporate them into my bullet journal–it’s only been schedules so far since the year started! :[ This’ll help to change things up!
This is such a wonderful idea. I tried to do something similar and got to October before I derailed.
I love that you provide all these journaling prompts. I’ve stopped writing in the past just out of frustration of not having something to write about. So I love all the different ideas. This is so helpful.
Writing in a journal is such a great thing to do. I often wish I were better at it. Unless something meaningful happens I never quite know what to write about so these prompts are so very helpful.
Such great advice. I am an avid journal gal and I enjoy reading others tips on how to keep on track with journaling. I love the added prompts!
wow! all this is so beautifully designed! I wish I had more time to journal 🙂
It is a great tip, as writing helps to know ourselves in a deeper level, and to turn it in an habit will only bring improvements!
I love free writing. I have two that I write in sometimes for my kids, but not often enough.
I just love the idea of journaling daily. Now I just have to find the time to do it
