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!

I can’t believe it’s almost the end of the year! For this month’s Daily Journaling Prompts, we’ll look back on this year and look ahead to next year.

  1. I find these prompts to be quite repetitive. Seems to be asking for the same things over and over…favourite moments, special memories, fun things, events, exciting things will pretty much all have the same answer.

    • Hi Sy, sorry you find them repetitive. Some are similar but I thought they would have different answers, even if they were subtly different. And some answers would be for different reasons. Thank you for your feedback!
