Writing is a great way to express our feelings in a meaningful way while exploring a greater sense of self and sparking creativity.
Journaling provides you with a better connection to yourself. It encourages you to have a deeper look at your values, goals and provides insight.
It can help clear out our minds "clutter," affording us with a sense of relaxation and calm. In a sense, it transfers our thoughts and emotions from our busy minds onto paper. This, in turn, can help with our ability to focus and process the often busy things going on in the world around us.
The act of journaling helps us with our own personal growth but also becomes a great opportunity to self reflect and see our achievements while tracking our over all development. It can help us process challenging times or experience in our lives or help us see positivity when we need need a little support.
There are many ways to journal and there is no right or wrong way to do it. You can customize your experience to work best for you. While some people may wish to just start writing whatever is on their mind others may rather have a theme or topic you are writing about.
Below, you will find a variety of journal prompts and starters grouped into three themes; Gratitude, Self Discovery and Creative Writing.
So find an empty notebook, open an new file on your computer or grab a scrap of paper and let the journaling begin!
