31 Journaling Prompts For Wellbeing And Self-Reflection

An open journal in a post about 31 journaling prompts for wellbeing and self-reflection
I find journaling such a vital part of my wellbeing and mental health. Writing my thoughts down really helps with processing what I'm feeling. Often I don't realise what is causing me distress until I write it down. Yet, I find when I get stressed and anxious, I stop journaling, and I find that stress stops my creative flow.

To combat this, I have set myself a 31-day journaling challenge. I've come up with 31 journaling prompts to aid wellbeing and self-reflection, which I am going to use it as part of my daily self-care routine. I would love you to join in.

  1. List five things you want to achieve this year. Why do you want to achieve them, and how will you go about achieving them?
  2. What are you grateful for?
  3. What is your favourite memory of last year?
  4. What does your ideal day look like?
  5. What has been worrying you lately?
  6. What is on your bucket list?
  7. What are your five core beliefs, and why are they important to you?
  8. Describe yourself in three words.
  9. What five things make you happy?
  10. Write a letter to your younger self. What are you thankful for, and is there anything you would you change?
  11. What would you say is your biggest strength?
  12. What's the last good habit you developed? How did you do it?
  13. How do you manage stress? Explore what has worked for you and what hasn't
  14. What scares you, and why?
  15. What do you love about yourself?
  16. If you could invent or create anything, what would it be?
  17. How do you handle a bad day?
  18. What are the three biggest distractions in your life at the moment, and how can you go about reducing them?
  19. What is one thing you've always wanted to try that you haven't yet?
  20. What is the best book, film or play you have ever experienced and why?
  21. What would you say is your biggest strength?
  22. If you could relive just one day. What would it be and why?
  23. Make a list of the people in your life who genuinely support you, and you can trust.
  24. What do you consider to be your most challenging flaw?
  25. Describe your dream life.
  26. Where do you see yourself in five years from now?
  27. Write a letter of encouragement to yourself that you can look back on a bad day.
  28. Who has been the most influential person in your life? How have they shaped you?
  29. What would you do if you knew you could not fail?
  30. What is one thing outside of your control that you need to stop worrying about?
  31. What does growing older mean to you?

Bonus: If you're now feeling in the zone. Do a little life audit. Work through every section of your life and assess what is working well, what isn't, and any changes you could make.

I would love to know how you get on!

Lots of love,

  1. I love taking time to be reflective and journal. I don't do it often enough and would love to get back on it in 2020. Thanks for the inspiration!
