30 Journal Prompts for 30 Days of Gratitude

Hey y'all!

We're getting real #deep in 2019, and I'm loving every second of it! And by deep, I mean emotionally deep, since ya know, we're only one month into the year. Writing about ways to connect with others and have a deeper understanding of yourself is just so easy and fun for me! In my last post, I mentioned how being grateful is one of the best ways to show the Universe that you are appreciative for everything that you have. It shows that you are seeing (and grateful for) everything that you are receiving, the big and the small.

The best way to do this, in my opinion, is writing it down. That's why I'm a big fan of journaling! Not only is it a great way to keep track of your previous thoughts and feelings, but it's great for letting out your emotions. Sometimes it can be hard to open up to an actual person, so writing things down on a piece of paper is a healthy alternative.

I recommend keeping your journal somewhere that you won't forget about it. For example, if you plan on journaling first thing when you wake up or right before you go to bed, keep your journal on/in your nightstand. If you have plenty of time on the bus ride to work, consider journaling on your way. Make journaling a priority. You might think you're too busy to add it into your everyday routine, but everyone has at least a little free time to sneak in some gratitude.

Here are some journals that would be perfect for starting out! Don't feel like you need to purchase something fancy though. An old composition notebook will work fine as well.





It's also important to have writing utensils that you enjoy using! There's nothing worse than ending up with ink smudged all over your hand and paper once you've finished. I'll be the first one to admit that I'm kind of a pen-snob, but if you're like me, then you totally get how rewarding it is to finally find a good pen. I personally love the InkJoy Retractable Gel Pens for my planner and journaling needs. There are a ton of colors so depending on what task or mood I'm in, I can switch it up and get creative. I also highly recommend Paper Mate Felt Tip Pens. So satisfying to use!!

Not the kind of person who enjoys sitting down with a pen and paper? You can journal inside of the notes app on your phone! It doesn't matter if you are physically writing it or typing it out, as long as you're expressing yourself in a healthy way, then you're doing what's best for yourself.

I hope you enjoy these next 30 days of journaling, and may the prompts open your eyes to new things to be grateful for! Be sure to check out my other 30 days of journaling prompt about self-love.
