Do you want to create a happier life? Then you have to start cultivating habits that will help you feel happier. And journaling is a simple but powerful tool that can help you in many ways. In this post, I share with you simple prompts that you can do in less than 10 minutes to self-reflect on the previous month.
It’s no secret that journaling has become a huge part of my life. I use journaling as a way to practice self-care, to help me set and achieve goals, to help me stay on track with my habits and routines, to cultivate more mindfulness and happiness…and the list goes on.
My intention behind my journaling content is to make it EASY and SIMPLE for you. I know that starting a new habit can feel overwhelming and confusing. And truth be told, at the beginning, I also felt a bit “stupid” – what do I write about? Am I writing the RIGHT thing? Am I writing enough? What else can I write?
And the confusion continued.
But with time, I created a simple system that I still follow do this day. I have my morning journaling and my evening journaling prompts (each is different and serves different purposes), and then I have my mid-day check-in (see THIS post for more details). I also do a brain dump when I start feeling overwhelmed. And finally, at the end of every month, I sit down and do a monthly self-reflection that helps me think back and process the previous month so that I can release any emotions or experiences, and move forward into the next month feeling energized and clear headed.

But I know that journaling can feel overwhelming and confusing. Which is why I made a video where I guide you through 3 simple journal prompts to help you reflect on the previous month. I coach you through each prompt, by asking you more questions to encourage you to push your thinking.
The video is short (only 7 minutes!) because I want you to experience and FEEL the benefits of journaling firsthand so that you can motivate yourself to start journaling more consistently.
After you’ve done the self-reflection questions, let me know in the comments below what thoughts came up and what you learned from the previous month.
