Before I give you the prompts, I want to touch base on why journaling is so important!
It helps you process. It can give you a deeper understanding and give you a clear understanding of what’s at hand. This is can be really important for those crazy emotions! (And if you need some guidance on accepting your emotions click here.)
It helps you de-stress. Writing in a journal is like talking to a bestie. They just don’t talk back and sometimes we need that! Plus the self-care/self-love aspect is an added bonus.
It helps you stay grounded. Meaning that you won’t just freak out, at a moment’s notice, because you have something that helps you cope.
There are so many other reasons and you might have your own reasons. For me, I love to write. I’ve always been that way. And writing for me makes it easier to express myself. Which is probably why I can text books to people! Lol! Anyway, before I give the prompts, let’s talk self-reflection.
Self-reflection is vital to any transformation you’re after. Whether you want to heal or develop. Checking in with yourself is important for your mental and emotional health. If you don’t check in and do some reflecting how will you know if you’re learning and growing? How will you know if you’ve moved on from your past? How will you know if you’re changing into the woman you truly want to be? The answer is you can’t, if you’re not self-reflecting.
You can always do quick checks, but these journal prompts will give you in-depth opportunity to really check in and analyze what’s going on!
Remember this isn’t about beating yourself up because you didn’t do something the “right” way; it’s about seeing where you are so you can adjust your course, if needed.
