    I’ve been wanting to start a wellness journal for a. Long time. These are some great prompts!

    This is great advice, I write journals, but never really thought about going back to them and re-reading them. They were just somewhere I could get my thoughts out and then not think about again or for a while. It makes so much sense that re-reading them at a different time may give me a different perspective of my thoughts back then. Thanks for this awakening.

  3. I’m not a huge “journal-er” but it does have awesome benefits- especially to ease anxiety! Jealous that you’re already into the habit!

      Yeah, the benefits are what keeps me coming back! It took me about 30 days to really make it a habit. I outline that in my other post here I believe. Once I started getting into a groove with it my night felt incomplete without it.

    I like this idea about journaling for getting to know yourself. I’m a teacher and I think that this would be a great free write activity to do with some of the older grades. We practice a lot of reflecting and this could be part of the process. It is quite often that we set out to do things without knowing if it is the right fit in the long run. It’s so hard to really know yourself, especially when you are young. Perhaps that’s why the universe sometimes doesn’t give up what we want. Thanks for sharing this. It got my wheels turning!

      I would have loved this if a teacher did this for me in HS! I may have started journaling more faithfully in my younger years. Self-knowledge is a concept that is never really taught and I think some people spend their entire lives trying to gain that skill without knowing exactly how. Kudos if you put this into your lesson plan!

    What a great post and something that I’m needing as well. Oftentimes the heart and the head want two different things and then we try to rationalize what the head is telling us to do. Well, the heart always knows along with some intuition, I think. Loved that you figured out a way to listen to that inner voice through journaling. I’m so glad that you came to an AHA moment that was right for you at this time. I love your journaling prompts and am going to pin this post for future reference with a decision that I’m trying to make as well. Thanks so much for sharing!

  7. I’ve tried journaling for a little but never really know what to write about. Now I have something to start with. Thanks! 🙂

    You sound more like me, first of all is always good to do that which is going to make you happy and keep you happy in life. since you dont have passion for public health, you will be unfair to yourself and to that which you are passionate about if you go ahead and study public health. The reason why i said you sound more like me is that i have always been putting my thought in a book ever since i was small and the strange about that was that i use to tell myself that i hate writing without knowing that i will one day have passion for writing. and now its one of the things that makes me happy and occupy my days.

    I found an app and made a point to log an entry into it every day this year. It really is great for self discovery and reflection

    I feel like journaling is really therapeutic. It’s great to write down thoughts like that.

  11. This is so great! Writing is one of my favorites and self-exploration is such a great practice.

    I used to love writing prompts in school!

    Awesome prompts! Definitely Pinning this for later. I go back and forth with journaling but I can definitely say that I do learn so much about myself and have more insight into my moods, decisions, and motivations!

    • awaitressnomore says:

      Aw thanks so much. I’m the same way. Only in the last couple years since I’ve had chronic pain have I really made an effort to journal regularly. Keeps me sane 🙂
