Journaling is the best way to check-in with yourself. 

I remember when I was a teenager, I used to love writing in my journal – pouring out all my emotions, telling my journal about the bad day that I’ve had and all other sorts of teenage aches and dramas.

But as I grew older (and busier), I started to think of journaling as a complete waste of time. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I still tried to do it every day, but there were just so many days that I didn’t know what to write.

You know the feeling when you’re just going about your day on autopilot and everything that’s happening is all just so mundane and dull — leaving you with a blank page and just nothing to write about.

And we all know how frustrating it is to keep staring at a blank page, right?

Thankfully, I found the perfect solution to this problem — journal prompts.

These journal prompts did not only make writing a whole lot easier and interesting but it is also greatly beneficial in helping me explore my thoughts and emotions.

It basically helped me get to know myself and connect with myself on a deeper level.

That’s why I’m sharing these with you. If you want to start making journaling fun and interesting while discovering yourself along the way, definitely give these a try!
