Journaling always makes me feel better. There is something about getting your thoughts out onto paper paired with the freedom of leaving them there. Self-reflection is always a good thing and I wanted to share 15 prompts to help get that process started.
15 Journal Prompts for Self Reflection:
1 // Write down 10 affirmations that you need to hear right now.
2 // The biggest lesson I’m learning right now is…
3 // Write a letter to your younger self.
4 // Make a list of 30 things you’re grateful for.
5 // My ideal day would look like…
6 // If I had to choose one area to improve in myself, I would pick…
7 // Write about your day today. What did you do? What are you feeling? What did you like? What would you change?
8 // The best moment of my life was… (or my favorite memory is…)
9 // The biggest gift I bring to the world is…
10 // Make a list of 20 things that make you happy.
11 // The hardest thing I’ve ever been through was…and I learned this lesson from it…
12 // Think about someone who inspires you and write about why.
13 // Write down three things you’re feeling right now. Dive deeper by writing down what you think is behind those feelings.
14 // Make a bucket list for yourself.
15 // Write down 10 things you love about yourself.
It is so important to carve out time for ourselves. We need to be refreshed and renewed on a regular basis and journaling is a great way to do that. I hope this list helps you get to know yourself better. If you journal any of these prompts – let me know!
