So I went ahead and thought of more than enough journal prompts to get you through the whole month of December so you have lot’s of options for daily journaling. So keep reading for 35 journal prompts for the holiday season!

However, if you are struggling with daily journaling (don’t worry, most people do!) I wanted to quickly share some tips for daily journaling. So let’s chat about these tips to help you stick to daily journaling this month.

Tips for daily journaling:

  • Make it a part of either your morning or night routine. Whichever routine is the most stable for you and doesn’t change often.
  • Keep your journal somewhere visible (like your nightstand) so when you see it you remember.
  • If possible set a timer on your phone for the time of the day you prefer to journal.
  • Make journaling it’s own little routine. For example, if you journal in the morning make it a routine to grab your journal, make your coffee, and then sit in the same quiet place to journal.

Now that we chatted about these helpful tips for daily journaling let’s get into these festive holiday journal prompts!
