Continuing our series on daily journaling prompts, here is a list of journaling topics for every day for the upcoming month! 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 school is out and people go on vacation. When I’m on vacation and away from my daily chores and routines, my mind has a chance to rest. That is when I get some of my best ideas and clearest thoughts. It’s also when I can think about my hopes and dreams, and make plans for what I want to happen in the future.
So this month’s prompts are designed to try to replicate that experience of clearing your mind of your day to day routines, and think about your hopes and dreams!
