Journaling prompts, topics and ideas to help express your thoughts, reach your goals, and to help create a deeper self awareness and a mindset of clarity.
Another month of journaling prompts to inspire a daily journaling habit.
Journaling is a catalog of our thoughts and feelings that can give us incredible insight into ourselves. When we process our experiences through writing, we’re better able to see our emotions, circumstances, and desires with complete coherence.
TIPS FOR CREATING A JOURNALING PRACTICE
- Incorporate journaling into your morning ritual
- You don’t have to use full sentences. Leo Babauta of Zen Habits, writes in bullets with 2-6 bullet points daily depending on the day.
- Combine work and personal journal topics
- Use the habit tracker as a daily reminder
- Don’t skip more than 2 days and try to go back to catch up
- Scroll to the bottom of this post for more journaling resources
I challenge you to journal regularly for 30 days, to begin making journaling a habit. That doesn’t mean you have to write every single day. Maybe begin with regularly journaling 3 to 4 times a week.
These prompts are written to give you a moment in time to reflect and take care of you.
