Journaling prompts for a month of Self Discovery!

Journaling is the awesome way of bringing what is on your mind to paper and diffusing it. It is an awesome practice to start your day with, or to take up anytime during the day. It can be an excellent way to self discovery. Do also read the post below that I wrote for beginners in Journaling.

Journaling – Why and How to begin? – Ruchika Sandell

We rarely think of what we are all about. But journaling for self discovery can give you a beautiful insight into what your inner core holds. It can help you understand yourself better. It can resolve inner conflicts and bring out the best in you.

Even though it is a beautiful practice the lack of inspiration makes it difficult to start journaling or what to write day in and out. I made this list of 30 journaling prompts to give you some inspiration.

To help you not get confused which one to pick each day, I advice, either go as per the date and the number mentioned here. Or you could write them on a paper and put them in a jar. Each time pick a slip from the jar and journal on what prompt you get.
