Journal Prompts For Mornings: Start Your Day Journaling Ideas!

Waking up and starting your day with journaling has so many wonderful benefits. It helps you get into the right mindset, it helps you collect your thoughts, and it helps you start your day with peace rather than immediately checking your phone. Which is why I am sharing this helpful list of journal prompts for mornings.

Before we jump into the list I want to talk about how to start your days with these journal ideas. Because learning to be consistent with your journaling is so helpful for tapping into all of the benefits of journaling.

Tips for adding journal prompts into your mornings:

  • Make it a genuine part of your morning routine. Work on creating a morning routine in general if you don’t have one yet and incorporate your journaling into it.
  • 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.

Also, if you want additional ideas for your morning routines make sure to check out these posts:
