Journaling Prompts to Help You Put Pen to Paper

As many of us adjust to life at home, away from our normal schedule and routine, and manage our way through what can only be described as one of the most challenging times the world has seen, it’s important to keep doing things that make us feel good and to look after ourselves, and each other (from a distance of course). And while there are many activities available to us, something the kikki.K team believes can help us through difficult times is simply putting pen to paper. Writing down whatever is on your mind.

Whether it’s journaling for pages and pages or simply stopping for a short moment of self-awareness, let these 20 simple journaling prompts below help you to process and record your thoughts and feelings during these ever-changing and challenging times.

1| List all the things that made you smile today…
2| What is something that really frustrated you about today? Why do you think it made you so frustrated?
3| How are you feeling right now?
4| List all the people in your life who make you happy, and why?
5| What has been the most challenging thing about this week?
6| Write down a list of 30 things that make you happy
7| What are three goals you can set yourself to achieve this week?
8| What are three things you’re grateful for right now?
9| What would you do if you knew you could not fail?
10| What would you do with your life if you had all the money and time you needed?
11| What is worrying you the most right now?
12| If you could speak to your teenage self, what advice would you give?
13| What do you want to have achieved by the end of this week?
14| What are five things that you are really looking forward to?
15| What is the best advice you have ever been given?
16| What do you love most about yourself?
17| If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be? And why?
18| What are five things you’d like to stop doing in my life?
19| What are five things you’d love to start doing?
20| Find an inspirational quote that resonates with you. Write it down then write about how and why you think it resonated with you.

So, as we work through these new and sometimes difficult times, remember the simple power of putting pen to paper. Schedule in a moment each day or an hour each week, whatever you can fit in, and write it all down. By putting everything in writing you’ll be getting it out of your head and onto the page, so you can create a calmer mindset.

Grab a beautiful notebook, notepad or journal and pen and maybe even light a candle and make a ritual out of it. Write your ideas, feelings, thoughts, discoveries, worries or any concerns that may be weighing you down. And remember, the simple act of sitting down to put pen to paper is an act of self-care in itself. Keep the above in mind as something you can try as you navigate through these uncertain times, and remember to look after yourself.
