30 Journal Prompts You Need for Self-growth

I love to journal. Do I do it as much as I’d like? No, but I hope to change that this year because journaling has always had a positive effect on me. Being able to pull out a notebook and pour your heart into it is something special to me. These simple sheets of paper can soak up your stress, anxiety and every little thing you imagine. And you can express yourself in any form you want.

Stories, poems, songs, or simply just use it as a diary! I think it’s amazing, and perfect to take anywhere and everywhere you go. There’s just something about putting it on paper that helps me let go. So today, I’m going to list 30 journal prompts for self-growth! I’ll be jotting down about these topics in my own journal with you!

    Amazing!! I would love to answer these questions in my journal— I did a similar journal prompts once and it was like talking with myself…
    I use my journal for doodling and sometimes when I’m stressed, I’d write down things that make me happy or sad, which will help me feel better.

    I love journals! I actually just started one specifically for gardening. I can tweak a few of these questions to go in there. Thank you for the list.
