Journaling is at the top of many self-care lists, and for good reason. Getting your thoughts out on paper can do wonders for your mental health and help you stay organized.

What Should I Write in My Journal? Here are a few ideas and journaling tips that will help you get started.

Start with a simple brain dump.  Transfer all of the information from your brain into your journal. Not only will this help you untangle your mind, but it will also give you a starting point for your journaling adventure.

Journaling for self-care can help you feel better about yourself and your situation. It can make you happier and lift your spirits to put you in a better mood.  

Freewriting is an entirely different type of journaling experience.  It’s the process of putting pen to paper and writing whatever pops into your head, whether it be a story idea, a to-do list, how you feel, or anything else.

Sometimes it’s hard to come up with your journaling ideas. If that’s the case, consider using journaling prompts. Prompts are short questions designed to give you a little push in a particular direction to help you start writing. 

Although journal prompts can help with self-discovery, you don’t need to use them. Many people use their journals for introspection and personal growth.

Journaling can be a great way to enhance your creative writing skills. Use the pages to write a poem, start a story, or design your characters.
