I love a good session emptying my head in my journal and I know a lot of my readers do too.

I enjoy the process of creating specific journal prompts to a couple of my 1:1 clients after our calls. We make them relevant to what is happening in their lives.

One of the most common questions I am asked is “What is the best way to journal?” and it really is personal to each person. You might choose to set a timer for 5-10 mins, you might choose to write a diary-style journal and document your life or you might like to do what I do and use journaling as a form of writing therapy. 

My Favourite Journal Prompt

This is a journal prompt I love and revisit time and time again as it can be used any day, for any way you feel:

‘How am I feeling right now and why?’

It doesn’t matter whether you’re sad, happy, stressed, elated, anxious or joyful, this prompt helps you celebrate the positive or write out your worries. It really does work for any occasion.

I would always recommend that you strike a good balance with journaling. It can get too easy to just write about the bad times or the things that worry you. Don’t forget to journal about the good times too and celebrate all your wins in life. It’s great to have positive things to read back on along with noticing how far you have come on your personal development journey by working out the negative stuff.
