Journaling Prompts To Get You Started

Planners and journals tend to go hand in hand rather nicely. I'm a huge advocate of journaling though I sometimes sit down, pen in hand, and don't have a clue where to start or what to write.

Here are some of my favorite journaling prompts that I resort back to when I'm stuck:

  • 5 things I'm grateful for

  • Something I'm doing for myself

  • What's inspiring me

  • Short term goals

  • Long term goals

  • People, things, and places I want to focus on

  • Achievements for the day/week/month

  • My 'person' this week

  • My favorite moment this week

  • Books to read this month

  • Shows/Movies to watch this month

  • Favorite quote lately and why

  • A life lesson I've learned recently

  • Life lately - a recap of what's been going on

  • Things to remember

  • A Playlist - List of music I'm listening to regularly

Journaling is an amazing tool for so many reasons! It helps to ground you, be creative, practice self-awareness, allows you to focus on what matters, work through your thoughts and feelings in a safe space, notice your personal habits and behaviors, set and achieve goals, and problem-solve through life. If you haven't tried journaling before, give it a shot and see how it can positively impact your day-to-day. There are no rules to it. It's totally up to you and what you make of it!
