Mixed in amongst the reflective journalwriting questions are creative writingprompts, light hearted questions and shortstory writing idea generator tables to helpget your creative writing juices flowing al-lowing you to have some fun with yourjournal.

For the short story idea generator tables usea dice to select at random 1 of 6 plot ideasfrom each of the 3 columns. Then combine

them to create the plot line for your shortstory. If you do not have a dice handy,simply write down 3 numbers each from 1-6at random without looking at the table ofplot ideas first. For example 3 6 5 you would

use the 3rd prompt from column A, the 6th

prompt from column B and the 5th promptfrom column C.

Journal Size & Style

This is a completely personal choice, as yourjournal will need to be a place you are happyto write in, carry and be seen in public with.Ask yourself do you prefer a blank page ordo you need lines to keep your words from

looking like they have been on a night out?Can the paper handle the type of pen youwant to use without bleeding through? Doyou prefer a journal to be stitched together

like a book or spiral bound?

Do you want your journal to have an imageon the cover or do you want it plain? Are youplanning on customizing the cover with im-

ages you want? Do you want a ribbon tomark your current page? An elastic strap tokeep it shut?

Spend some time at a bookstore or station-ers and get a feel for as many journals andnotebooks as you want. Having worked in astationary store before, I know it is aroundthe notebooks where people spend the mosttime (there and the glittery gel pens). Pick-ing one journal up, putting it back, picking itback up, then back down, picking up anoth-

er and so on. So do not worry about the staffwondering if you are acting suspiciously,they will be used to it.

The most popular journal size we sold wasaround A5 paper size (148mm x 210mm). Itoo personally prefer the A5 as they are easi-er to carry around, they are less intimidatingto get started with and look more like the

journals from the movies once complete. Ihave experimented with a lot of differentjournals over the years and my personal fa-vorite is the   Large Moleskine Ruled

Notebook   because it is lined, has a backpocket and an elastic strap.

If the journal you have chosen does not havea pocket in the back, glue in an envelope of aslightly smaller size to your journal on theinside of the back cover. This way you cancollect ‘bits and pieces’ as you go to be added

to your journal pages at a later time.

Commit To Your Choice.

Whichever you choose or if you decide touse one you have already bought. Commit toit. This is now the journal you are going touse for the next 365 journal writing days.You will probably go through more than one

over the next year so you can experimentwith another style for your next one if youwish.

Just do not stop and start again in anotherjournal because you are not ‘feeling it’. Thisis it.

Why Make The Time?

Making the time to journal can be difficult,jobs need doing, children need feeding, dogsneed walking. Writing in the evening can bea great way to clear the mind but can be in-terrupted by unplanned nights out, tempta-

tion to watch a great TV show or the daycould of been so long, the last thing youwant to do write when all you want to do iscrash out.

So I make the effort to journal first thing inthe morning. Well it used to be an effort atfirst, as I used to hate mornings (reallyhated mornings) but now I feel like I have

cheated myself of something if I don’t do it.

Like with exercise it is too easy to dismiss itas something ‘I don’t have time for’ or ‘I’m

too tired’. So I like to think of journal

Page 36: 365 Journaling Prompts

7/23/2019 365 Journaling Prompts

http://slidepdf.com/reader/full/365-journaling-prompts 36/1089

writing like mining for precious stones. So-metimes it is going be easy then at times itwill feel difficult and you will face thoughtsand emotions you would rather keep buried,but by digging deep and clearing the dirtand clutter you will find your diamonds.

Your shiniest diamonds are going to be mo-

ments of clarity, acceptance, closure, cre-ativity, ideas, direction and purpose. Theyare why we should make the time.

Journal O’Clock 

If you to want to journal first thing but findit difficult to wake up when you are still notdone with yesterday, this is a technique Icreated through many   trial and errors tomake myself more of a morning person.

Use two alarms, one set for the time you ac-tually want to get up at, then the other for30 minutes before the first. The first alarm

to go off will be by your bed and you canturn it off for a guilt free 30-minute lie in.The second alarm to go off will be by yourbedroom door, now you are up. Stay up.Even though your bed will be calling you

back. Go into the kitchen and make yourselfa drink to wake yourself up with. Now forthe best part, get back into bed with yourjournal. The next 45 minutes are yours and

yours alone to journal in bed.

Page 39: 365 Journaling Prompts

7/23/2019 365 Journaling Prompts

http://slidepdf.com/reader/full/365-journaling-prompts 39/1089

Open this book and your journal and go withit. It will get your mind going for the day andI have found for myself the benefit of journ-aling first thing is that although we areslower physically in the morning (lots ofyawning, stubbing toes on the corner of thewall etc) our minds are pretty sharp as the

events of the day have not cluttered them upyet. There is probably a scientific studysomewhere backing this up.

Once you have finished your daily journalwriting you could spend the rest of yourJournal O’clock time flicking through yourjournal, writing out your list of to-dos forthe day or reading a chapter of a book.

Example of my routine:6:00- Alarm by bed for 30 minute lie in.6:30- Alarm by bedroom door, get up and

make coffee.

Page 40: 365 Journaling Prompts

7/23/2019 365 Journaling Prompts

http://slidepdf.com/reader/full/365-journaling-prompts 40/1089

6:35- Get back into bed for journal writingand reading.7:15- Get on with the rest of my day.

Now how much better does this sound com-pared to starting your day by throwing youralarm clock off of the wall because you areconvinced the people in charge of time have

got things horribly wrong and you shouldstill have another 4 hours of sleep due.Rushing around the house while still gettingready, eating breakfast while putting on

your shoes and telling yourself the daily lieof “I’m going to wake up earlier tomorrow”.

Give the Journal O’clock routine at least 7days to see if it works for you. Of course

journaling at night is a great way to getthings off your mind and prepare for a rest-ful nights sleep. Try both and see whichworks, you yourself will know which is best

for you.

7/23/2019 365 Journaling Prompts

http://slidepdf.com/reader/full/365-journaling-prompts 41/1089

Keeping your journal by your bed can alsobe useful for 2 more reasons:

1  For a restless or worry filled night. Openyour journal and just get what is on yourmind out onto the paper, better to let yourjournal deal with it than have it going

around your head all night long.

2  For moments of night-time genius. Howmany times have you thought of an amazing

idea at night but instead of turning on thelight and getting up to make a note you’vetold yourself “I’ll remember it in the morn-ing”. Only to wake up remembering you hadan idea, but you have no clue what it was.

The Fear Of The Blank Page

This is the biggest hurdle many people facewhen wanting to begin journal writing. Youhave made the time but now you have thisbeautiful piece of craftsmanship sitting infront of you. In your mind you are picturing

a fascinating journal filled with thoughts,dreams, images and memories. Yet the fearof ‘ruining it’ prevents you from evenstarting.

If this is a problem for you, do not worry be-cause I have included an introductionprompt to help you conquer the first blankpage.

I too was so intimidated by the blank page inmy first journal you would have been forgiv-en for thinking it had snapping jaws or

shouted insults at me every time I opened it.

Page 44: 365 Journaling Prompts

7/23/2019 365 Journaling Prompts

http://slidepdf.com/reader/full/365-journaling-prompts 44/1089

After many months of hesitation, I realisedmy need for perfection was literally gettingme nowhere. So I now repeat the followingmantra to myself whenever I need to stopmy perfectionist in its tracks:

A DONE SOMETHING IS BETTER THAN APERFECT NOTHING.

It is based on the saying ‘done is better thanperfect’, which for some reason I couldn’tquite buy into, perhaps because part of me

believes perfect is better than done. So byadding ‘something is better than nothing’, Ican believe in that completely. I write thison the page I feel intimidated by to breakthe ice and let it know who is in charge.

After all, it is a piece of paper.

It is also useful to use in day-to-day life, forexample when procrastinating about

something you really need to get done, such

Page 45: 365 Journaling Prompts

7/23/2019 365 Journaling Prompts

http://slidepdf.com/reader/full/365-journaling-prompts 45/1089

as filling out a form, making an importantphone call, etc.

So if at any point over the next 365 daysshould you feel intimidated by your perfec-tionist (disguised as the fear of the blankpage) write the mantra down into yourjournal.

Remember you cannot ruin an empty journ-al by writing in it. It would be like sayingyou ruined an empty swimming pool by

filling it with water. It is not something rareand precious, after all there could be anoth-er million copies of the exact same blankjournal in the world. A journal was nevermeant to be empty, it was created to help

you, let it.

Give Your Journal An Identity 

A good way to push yourself past the fear ofthe blank page is to read the prompts in thisbook as though they are questions beingasked of you by a journalist or TV talk showpresenter. It turns your journal writing into

more of a conversation and also preventsyou from using brief one-word answers;after all you wouldn’t give Oprah Winfrey aone-word answer would you? It also helps

you write more because it feels like someoneis actually listening to your words.

Give your journal a name to address it by oryou could pretend you are writing to a

friend, a family member, a historical figure,a fictional character, a celebrity or businesspersonality you admire or even to yourhigher-self or higher being of your choice.

Anyone or anything that helps you open up.

You could even address your answers to meif it helps, you can read the about me to puta face to the questions.

Another way to ensure you gain the mostpossible benefit from your practice is to aimto fill an entire page in your journal perprompt. This will prevent you giving short

answers and increase the likelihood of theprompt sparking an idea or memory. It alsocreates a more interesting keepsake and re-member you are digging for diamonds.

Titling, Dating & Tagging

At the top of every entry write down theprompt question or just the prompt ques-tion number so you can refer back overthem. On the outside top corner of eachpage note the date and on the bottom out-

side corner tag the journal entry with a#hash-tag. For example if the entry is aboutyour parents you could add #Family #Mom#Dad etc. This makes flicking back over

your journal easier, rather than having toscan over every page you can just look at thebottom of each page to see what it was youwrote about.

Once you have finished a journal (great feel-ing) be sure to label the spine with a date.For example if you wrote in the journal from

the 1st of February 2013 to the 20th of

September 2013 you would write 01/02/13

http://slidepdf.com/reader/full/365-journaling-prompts 52/1089

– 20/09/13. It just helps for future referenceand you can build up a nice ordered collec-tion on your bookshelf (is that my border-line OCD talking again?).

You This Read Wrong

Do not worry about your spelling, grammaror punctuation being perfect. Your journalwriting is not going to be assessed. Just letloose and let the words run free without thefear of the grammar police pulling you over

and ruining your flow.

For Your Eyes Only 

Even with an amazing hiding space for yourjournal (if you feel like hiding it), the fear ofpeople finding your journal and readingsomething about you or them they might notlike is enough to make you drop your pen

and bin your journal right now. Sowhichever journal size you decided on,measure one page and note the dimensionssomewhere in the back for future reference.

With this information browse through somemagazines, catalogues, newspapers and cutout images and pages that catch your eye.Cut them to size and take 5, fold them half

and keep them in the back pocket or envel-ope in your journal. These can be used tocover over any pages where you have ventedabout someone or written something you

would rather no one else ever read. Scribble

over your words and simply glue themagazine page/image over the journal page.

So you will feel better for getting things offof your chest, you do not need to worryabout anyone seeing it and you have a niceimage in your journal.

Get Messy 

Use your journal as a space to get creative,messy and experimental. Some suggestionsare:

Prepare pages with a bit of paint for some

colour before writing on them.Paint on pages just for the sake of it; enjoyspreading the paint around the page.Create collages; images you are drawn to,

things you want or collections of images ofthe same color etc.Fill a page with colorful sweet wrappers.Fill a page with rubber stamp prints.Cover a page with an image pulled from a

magazine and use it as a background for ajournal entry and write on top of it.Finger painting.Become an impromptu fashion designer and

sketch out some ideas.

http://slidepdf.com/reader/full/365-journaling-prompts 60/1089

Spread paint around a page using an old giftcard then using the edge of the gift cardwrite into the paint to reveal the page be-neath. Page size quotes look great like this.

Have fun. It adds texture to your journaland gives it a ‘crunch’ when closing it. Note:I personally find acrylic or poster paints

work better than watercolours, as watercol-our paints can soak through most standardjournal paper types.

Lost & Found

Hopefully this will never be needed but justin case, on the inside cover of your journalstick in a small envelope with a $10 note in-side with a small note saying:

“Please use this money to post my journ-al back to me at (name and a work ad-dress). It would mean the world to meand please keep any change for yourself.

Thank you for your act of kindness.” 

Seal the envelope and write on or next to it:

“If you have found my journal please

open this envelope”.

This may seem unnecessary at the start ofyour journal-writing journey but once it is

filled with memories, ideas and dreams the

Picture Perfect

When adding photos to a journal entry it canbe tempting to add a lot together but youwill end up with more of a photo album thana journal. You should be selective (pretendyou are an editor of a magazine) and only

add one or two to illustrate the entry. If youcan’t resist adding more, glue in an envelopeonto a page and keep them together thatway or make a small collage of images.

Keep a piece of card to scale of a photo sizeyou would like to add to your journal in theback pocket. Then when you know you wantto add a photo you can draw the outline and

write around it. I use a 4” x 2.5” templatebecause I can fit 8 photos onto an A4 sheetof photo paper. Also drawing around busi-ness cards and sticking in Post-It notes can

Page 67: 365 Journaling Prompts

7/23/2019 365 Journaling Prompts

http://slidepdf.com/reader/full/365-journaling-prompts 67/1089

be a good way to make space for a photo youwish to add later.

We tend to leave our photographs trappedinside our digital cameras, phones and com-puters. So on payday why not buy (or onspecial occasions ask for) a gift voucher for aphoto print shop or for wherever you buy

your printer ink and photo paper from.

This way you will always be in a position torelease your photos and physically hold, add

them to your journal, share and keep themfor future generations. Imagine if your par-ents did not have that amazing box of ran-dom family photos. Do you have half asmany physical photographs?

Flashbacks

Use your journal to record any fleetingmemories. Include as much detail as youcan recall. You do not need to remember thespecifics like the date or time of thememory, just the details of the moment.

Imagine they are like the ‘flashbacks’ char-acters in movies and TV shows have to buildtheir back-stories.

Simply start an entry with I rememberwhen…

“Whatever you appreciate and givethanks for will increase in your life.”

- Sanaya Roman

Also do not be afraid to repeat gratitudeentries. I used to be so hung up on the ideaof having to have completely unique entries,

until I realized it is all about what you arefeeling. If you are feeling grateful forsomething again, write it down again. Grat-itude is gratitude, simple.

you find it so interesting, just keep it. Younever know one of these little tokens couldbe the starting inspiration point forsomething big. Plus they add some textureand visual impact to your journal. Ifsomething catches your eye but is not flat or‘glueable’ take a photograph of it to glue inlater or maybe draw it.

If something like a magazine or blog articleis too big, you can fold it once over, thenagain and glue one side to the page. It will

then open up full size when you want. Al-ternatively summarize the key points of thearticle into your journal. For blog articlesnote the website URL into your journal, likea really retro (pen & paper) bookmarking

Use your journal to draft up an ‘elevatorpitch’ for yourself. This is a short introduc-tion to be used when meeting new peopleshould they ask the dreaded questions “so

what do you do?” or “tell me a little aboutyourself”.

Include what you do for a living, a current

project you are working on or how youspend your days and some interests. Havingan elevator pitch ready can take the stingout of the fear of meeting new people inforced situations such as networking *shud-

ders*. Also imagine this is the brief descrip-tion a talk show host or award host woulduse to introduce you to the stage. Draft out afew variations of your pitch until you are

comfortable with it.

I know from experience the worst questionanyone can ask you when you are out ofwork is “so what do you do?” It can feel likea kick in the teeth, so if you are out of workadapt your pitch to saying what type of jobyou are looking for or say you have a fewideas in the pipeline then move onto your

interests. Remember you are more thanwhat you do for a living; it is your intereststhat make you interesting.

Note: As an interest travel is useful becauseit is the easiest conversation starter, it is likethrowing a small talk lifeline to the otherperson for something to talk about. Almosteverybody has an interest in traveling. Even

if you feel like you haven't been anywhereyet, talking about where you want to go orabout where they have been is a great way tobreak the ice.

Today turn envy into inspiration, by think-ing about someone you feel envious of.Create a list of all the things you feel jealousabout; is it their appearance, material pos-

sessions, lifestyle, personality traits, experi-ences, achievements etc?

Now with 10 being the most important and 1

the least, go through the list and for eachone rate from 1 to 10 on how important(honestly) each point would be to improvingyour overall happiness. When rating themgo a little bit deeper, for example are you

really jealous of their expensive car becauseyou want the exact same one? Or is it be-cause you are actually envious of the factthat they have the money to spend on an ex-

pensive car?

For the points you rated highly take sometime to write out some ways you too couldhave what they have but in your own indi-vidual way.

Some examples could be:They have confidence to spare: Push

your boundaries; try new things to increaseyour self-confidence.They have a great social life: Put your-self in a position to meet lots of new poten-

tial friends such as joining a class or a team.They always look great: Make more of aneffort with your appearance, wear your best,try a new style and improve your health &fitness levels.

They have achieved so much: Althoughit may not always seem like it, underneath itall they were paddling hard like a swan.They had a goal and worked hard towards it

over time. So decide on an achievement youwant to accomplish and start paddling.They were born into money : Yes theymay have been lucky enough to be born intomoney, but that money came from some-where. At some point in their family historysomeone worked hard to create the wealth.So use them as motivation to work hard and

know the money you make will feel twice asvaluable because you earned it.

Getting an additional part time jobwould increase your income (finances), al-low you to acquire new skills (career &learning) and make new friends (social life).

Joining an art class  would allow you toexplore your inner artist (creativity & selfexpression), meet new people (social life)and discover new techniques (learning).

 Week 1.

Create a happy memories jar. Any emptyglass jar with a screw lid will do. Keep slipsof paper small enough to fold up and put in-to the jar next to your happy memories jar.

Throughout the year note any great mo-ments or events and add them to the jar (aswell as noting them in your journal). Then atthe end of the year you can tip them out and

read to relive the memories or for those dayswhen you are in need of a boost. Spend a fewmoments going through the memories tocheer yourself up.

Then after the year keep the jar on a book-shelf or in a box labeled with the year tobuild up a collection.

you fancy going for a coffee or want to buy amagazine etc. Keep an eye out for any of-fers/discounts related to the things from youlist.
