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 our focus is today. Each day’s topic is going to focus on that particular day. But as always, this is all about you! Feel free to pick and choose which topics you want, do them on different days, do the same one(s) every day, or mix it up weekly instead of daily. It’s up to you!
But no matter which prompts you choose, focus on that day. So you’ll need to do your journaling either in the evening, or the following day to write about each day.
These prompts are designed to help you be more mindful, present, and in touch with the world around you.
Have a great month!
