Journal Writing Prompts
Journal writing is something I have done for as long as I can remember. It has helped to bring clarity to my thoughts when I'm faced with difficulties and brought a sense of relief. If there’s a gift I can leave with any young adult, it’s journaling. Absolutely free therapy!
I don’t have something to write everyday in my journal. In fact, some days I really struggle with articulating what I feel so writing doesn’t come naturally.
At times, I go back to old journals to see what I wrote, what I was thinking and feeling during that period. I recall moments of growth, details of life events and some pleasant memories.
What I love about prompts is they do the heavy work for me. They trigger a thought that leads me to unlock what I might be feeling. I don’t want you to struggle like me, so I’ve written a few journal writing prompts you can use too!
Here’s a few tips:
📔 Journal at the same time everyday-it helps to keep you consistent
📔Use a pen that’s comfortable and makes your handwriting neater-no point scribbling something that you can’t read later
📔Make it yours-light up a candle, put on some music, grab a healthy snack
I usually put on some music and make sure my husband has vacated the room
