30 Journaling Prompts

A journal is a place for recording your day to day happenings and science continually shows the benefits of putting pen to paper. When we physically write things down we reduce distractions which, in turn, leads to greater productivity, retention of information, creativity, and self-discipline. Plus, research consistently shows that twenty minutes of daily expressive writing promotes emotional, physical, and psychological healing. With everything going on right now you have likely been presented with new challenges and journaling is one of the easiest ways to cope.
