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.
