Journaling is helpful to me on so many levels. It’s one of my favorite ways to relieve stress and work through my emotions. I journal to record memories and to hold on to beautiful quotes I read or funny things the kids said.
Sometimes opening up my journal to a blank page can be intimidating. I just don’t know where to start. I’m willing to bet that many people have that same issue!
As a way to help us overcome the fear of the blank page, I am excited to share some journaling prompts! My plan is to put together a list of prompts like this every month.
I included 24 prompts for the month. It just didn’t feel necessary to do one for every day because I didn’t want anyone feeling like they had to ‘catch up’ if they got behind. (If that bugs you and you’d really like to have enough prompts for one each day for the month, will you please let me know?)
Here’s how this works:
- download the free printable journal prompts below
- print them out
- cut out the prompts
- glue them into your journal
- answer the questions however works best for you!
You may not feel like specific prompts apply to you, but I’d like to challenge you to come up with an answer anyway. You may be surprised at the memories and feelings you uncover as you work through the list of prompts.
These prompts could be used in many ways. You could answer the questions bullet list style (the quickest and easiest method of journaling, in my opinion) or write long-form answers. You could include a photo for each prompt, or doodle your responses.
There are so many options! I’d love to see how you use them! Take a photo and tag me on Instagram!
