Try These 3 Journal Prompts For Your Self-Care Time

so you can show up for yourself & others

As a creative person, I tend to have a lot of thoughts that keep me from accomplishing the goals I truly need to get done for the day. In the last few years, I’ve found journaling to be an incredible form of self-care. Whether it’s a watercolor journal or a bullet journal, putting my thoughts to paper keeps me grounded. Now more than ever, it’s been a practice that allows me to keep showing up for myself and others during this difficult time. Below are three simple journaling prompts you can try! All you need is a pen and a piece of paper. If you want to get super creative, feel free to grab a ruler to make straight lines or pick out your favorite supplies (I have a few favorites in my Amazon Shop!) to add some color!
