Taking the time to journal throughout your day is a great way to make self-reflection a regular habit. Sometime’s putting the pressure on yourself to journal each and every single day can burn you out pretty quickly, so don’t be afraid to journal as and when it feels good to. And if you’re struggling to carve out time for it? Try putting it on your to-do list and making it a non-negotiable so you can develop a habit and see how it feels and how it could fit best into your life.
For daily reflections, I’ve broken it down into some possible questions for you for in the morning and then some for in the evening too:
These prompts are great for starting your day off in a reflective and purposeful way. Checking in with yourself, intentionally deciding how you want to navigate your day, and embracing some gratitude can be a great way to kickstart the day ahead.
- What am I grateful for today?
- How do I feel today?
- What do I want to prioritise today?
- What do I want to accept or let go of today?
These prompts are great for reflecting by digging deep into what you learned, discovered, and enjoyed from the day. It can be a great way to process the day so you can enter the following one fresh and ready to go.
- What did I learn today?
- What am I proud of today?
- What did I find challenging today?
- What did I enjoy about today?
- What am I thankful for today?
Next up we’re going to explore some journal prompts for monthly reflections...
