125 Journal Prompts for Self-Improvement

Journal for Self-Improvement

Writing in a journal for self-improvement is a beneficial mind-releasing thing. Getting stuck on what to journal about is a common problem for people. Hopefully, I can get you going on your journaling journey in no time with these 125 Journal Prompt ideas. 

Quick note: To get to the root of creating an open discussion with yourself in your journaling, remember to let the words flow. Focus on the journal question and just sit and let the words that flow on to paper. Don’t focus on spelling or beautiful penmanship; instead, concentrate on what you are feeling about the question. Don’t second guess anything; that is the best way to create a self-exploring journaling habit.
