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’s theme is all about finding balance in your life. The prompts are designed to help you think about different aspects of your life, and if you are focusing on some things maybe at the expense of others. Remember, we can’t do everything all the time. At some times of our lives we have to focus on certain things. But I hope these prompts will help you think about various aspects of your life and how you can bring balance to your life.
I have some quotes thrown in there too, feel free to write about what each quote means to you, or if it reminds you of a specific situation or time of your life.
Have a great month!
