Daily journaling is something we talk a lot about on here and so is gratitude. And thankfully they are something that you can combine! Doing daily journaling with gratitude prompts is a fantastic way to work on making sure you are prioritizing gratitude in your days. As well as helping you stick to journaling every day and all the amazing benefits of daily journaling!

Before we get into all these prompts I want to quickly cover some helpful tips for adding journaling to your days.

Tips for adding journal prompts into your days:

  • 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.
