Nine Journal Prompts for Every day Inspiration

Please read on for my Journal Prompts. I love keeping a journal and would encourage anyone to do the same. I do love blogging and writing everything down, but keeping a journal means you can keep it private and write what you really feel. There may be time when you are stuck for something to write about though and that’s why prompts are such a good idea.

Journal Prompts for Every Day

  • When in your life were you happiest?
  • Who would play your life in a film?
  • What living person do you most admire and why?
  • What is your idea of ultimate happiness?
  • What do you attribute to your biggest successes in life to?
  • What is your life motto?
  • What would this chapter of your life be titled?
  • With regard to your daily actions, what one thing could you do that would make other things easier?
  • With regard to your daily actions, what one thing, if you did it, would make you feel more proud of yourself?

Choosing a Journal and Your Pens

I always find this part of journaling most fun. I love to choose which book I’m going to keep my thoughts and feelings written down in. I also doodle in my books. Some people spend hours designing each page. I did this once when Star was born. Each day I filled in a page with photo’s, drawn pictures, cut outs and each page was a complete design that took me a couple of hours to complete. My baby journal is a joy to look back on.

I sell journals in my little shop. I have ruled notebooks, bullet point notebooks and journals with prompts and mindfulness exercises.

I like to choose a journal I will enjoy picking up each day to write in. Maybe it has a pretty picture on the front, or maybe I like the feel of the pages inside, the quality of the paper can make a big difference sometimes. I also spend time choosing my journaling pen and tend to use this pen only for filling in my journal. For Christmas last year my daughter bought me a packet of Sarasa Pens and they are great for little doodles and adding colour to my journal.

For writing though I prefer something like these Zebra ballpoint pens, the rose gold colour just makes them prettier. (I have about 3 packs of these!)


Journals help you to focus on what is important in your life and how you feel. They can help you make the improvements you need in your daily life as well as improve your mental health. I wrote a post on Journaling quite recently for Mental Health Week.

For extra inspiration you can check out my Mind Cards, they are full of inspiration for things to put in your journal. I even have Journal Mind Cards and Mind Cards for Kids.

  1. I have a pile of empty journals and loads of pens – I just need to get back into actually writing again. I used to do it but then life got in the way and I stopped – even though thats when I should have done it the most.
