You can transform your life with daily journaling. It’s a wonderful habit that will bring you many benefits. I’d like to invite you to journal for the next 31 days to fully discover who you are, explore your new dreams, and plan your next adventures.
To get started, you’ll need to create some room in your life for this new activity. Are you more of a morning person, who may benefit from starting your day by tapping into your energy? Perhaps the afternoon would be better for journaling over a cup of soothing tea? If you find your evenings more productive, this would be the best time for you to do your journaling. Choose 20 to 30 minutes at whichever time of day feels right for you to spend writing down your thoughts.
Below, you’ll find 31 prompts to inspire your journaling. You can work through this list in chronological order during the next 31 days, or you may prefer to jump around as inspiration manifests.
Remember that journaling is a judgment-free activity. If you misspell a word, use the wrong tense or create a run-on sentence, don’t worry about it! Journaling is about the ideas, not the writing itself. You don’t even need to use punctuation if you don’t want to. What you write is just for you, and it should be fun and stress-free.
Enjoy the freedom to explore, play, and create to your heart’s delight! Here are the 31 prompts to get you started with journaling.
