Journaling is such a wonderful activity for so many reasons and the holidays are a great time to be consistent with journaling. The holidays are often filled with joyful emotions as well as some stress and anxiety. And journaling can help you get and stay connected with those inner thoughts and emotions during the Christmas time. Which is why I am sharing this list of Christmas journal prompts to write this year!
Daily journaling is a great routine item to do but actually getting into that routine can be very challenging. Which is why I want to quickly share some helpful tips for daily journaling.
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 that you need to journal today.
- 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, a key to being successful with daily journaling is to make sure and have the right supplies. So let’s quickly go over what supplies you need:
What journaling tools do you need?
A journal- of course you need the actual journal to start journaling!
Pens- ideally pens that don’t leak through to the other page like these ones.
A quiet place- you need a quiet and calm place that you can think about these prompts and start decreasing your stress.
Now that we have talked about these tips for daily journaling and the journaling supplies you need let’s get into this list of Christmas journal prompts to write!
