Morning journaling is a great way to set your intentions and gain clarity for the day ahead.
If you’re looking to start a morning journaling habit but aren’t sure where to begin, I’ve put together 52 morning journal prompts for you. They’ll help you find inner peace, and reflect on your goals, values, and priorities.
The Morning Journal Prompts
Here are 52 questions for journaling. Use them to kickstart your day.
Whether you’re new to journaling or have been doing it for years, these prompts can help you dig deep and gain insight into your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. You can take your time and explore one prompt a day for a year (yep, there’s a reason why they’re 52 of them), or mix it up and tackle several themed prompts each morning. If you prefer a slower pace, you can spread the prompts out and write one a week.
The choice is yours.
