Journaling is a non-negotiable part of my routine.
I journal for at least one minute every day. Even if it’s just writing in the notes app of my phone.
Putting my pen to paper every day has helped me become more aware of the subconscious self-sabotage present in my life, learn from my intuition, and uplevel my life in ways I wouldn’t have if I stayed in autopilot.
Today I am going to share 7 journal prompts you can use this week to get in the habit of journaling.
As you answer the questions, remember, you have all the answers. If you keep writing, you will start to come to some insights you wouldn’t have either.
The only way to do this wrong is to not write at all. As long as you write something down, you are doing it right.
Here’s your 7 journal prompts:
How can I learn from this? Pick one thing you are struggling with. (Binge eating, relationships, health, finances) Write all the lessons you can learn from your current struggles.
How have I grown? Acknowledge the ways you have changed, the lessons you have learned, and the ways you have improved your life already.
Why am I doing this? Pick any decision you’ve made or action you’re taking and answer the question “why?”.
What would my future self tell me right now? The version of yourself that already has accomplished your goals has a lot of wisdom. It may feel silly at first, but you will learn a lot from asking your future self questions and writing yourself answers from a place of security, confidence, and love.
What would my 12-year-old self tell me? What parts of my life would they be blown away by? What shifts would they encourage me to make?
Write about an affirmation and come up with evidence that it is true. If there isn’t an affirmation you currently are working on believing, use “My body is my friend”
If you believed you could do anything or have anything, what would you do today? If you knew for a fact you could accomplish anything, what would you try?
Remember, you deserve more!
