Continuing our series on daily journaling prompts, here is a list of journaling topics for every day in October! This gives everyone some new ideas for journaling, and can help take the pressure off to think of something to journal about every day, especially for people doing our Page Per Day Challenge.
Some days are the same each month:
At the beginning of each month we write our goals for the upcoming month. Even if you did this earlier in the year, things change so it’s a good idea to re-set and update your goals each month. We also write what we are looking forward to this month.
Mid-month we see what progress we’ve made. This is a chance to jump-start any goals that have slipped off your radar and regain focus.
At the end of the month we write about good things/ favorite moments for the month, and evaluate our goals progress to see what still needs work in the upcoming weeks.
All the other days have new journaling topics and writing prompts!
This month’s theme is: Would You Rather?
This is similar to, but different from, the game you played with your friends as a kid. This month I’m not going to ask you to write whether you would rather eat a worm or a bug. Each day will have a prompt where you need to choose your preference. Some are just fun, others are to get you to think more deeply about the subject. For all of them, the most important part is to write Why.
Why do you prefer one over the other? What do you like about one or dislike about the other? What does that mean to you, and your life?
Here we go!
1: What do you want to do this month? Write your goals for the month, and think about what you need to do to accomplish them.
