30 Journal Prompts To Help Start Your Morning Routine

For anyone who truly knows me, knows that I do not play with my morning routine. I love my mornings. Everything is quiet, and it’s my time to be alone and center myself. One thing that I have incorporated into my morning routine is –  journaling. I love to write. Journaling has helped me start my day with a sense of stability and control. I think what really gives me anxiety sometimes is the feeling of NOT being in control. So being able to journal and express myself on paper is so therapeutic.

Some days I will journal about something specific, while other days I write whatever my stream of consciousness is thinking about. I allow myself to just be free with my thoughts and let my pen do its thing. When I let go of the thoughts in my head, I feel happier….and it’s a beautiful feeling. 

Before I write, I have to set the mood – I turn on my air diffuser, play some meditation music from the Insight Timer app, and make sure the curtains are open to allow in some natural sunlight. Yall already know I need the sun to survive. Once I’m in the mood, I write. 

In today’s post I’m going to share with you 30 journal writing prompts that you can use when you journal. A journal prompt is a simple statement (like a mantra) used to inspire you of what to write about. Sometimes we have so many thoughts but we’re unsure of where to start. Hopefully this list can help you.
