Journaling is a proven way to improve mental health. And it is a great thing to include in your daily self-care regimen.
Sometimes though, if not accustomed to free writing, journal prompts can help to guide your writing.

Stuck daily in a cycle of questioning your gifts, your abilities, your looks.
And forever unable to advance yourself because then negative things you tell yourself are so very crippling.
I say no more. It is time to take the reins of your life and direct it forward with power and vision.
A vision is driven by self-love.
Towards this end, there are few things you can do. On these is journaling.
There is a good reason why journaling has been around for so long and it has power
It can help you have perspective on things that are bothering you
It can assist you in letting go of things you’re holding on to.
It can ease your mind
It can provide clarity.
Journaling is a great way to confide your thoughts without really telling anyone.
And it works. However, it is still good to speak to a real live person, like a therapist if you are having mental health issues. I encourage this. There is a real need for seeing a mental health counselor because as I said mental health care requires a diverse approach for real impact.
Don’t keep troubling things to your self. Mental health requires several modalities so as to achieve real wellness. Mental issues such as depression and anxiety require an integrated approach to healing.
This integrated approach Includes healthy nutrition, healthy sleep habits, and a healthy self-care-a broad term which in essence is everything required for balanced mental health.
While some people can write freely at any time, sometimes, it is good to have a guide to help you pick areas you would like to write about and get the process, an angle that sort of point the way.
So journal prompts are great to guide the journal writing process. So grab a sweet smooth notebook a, prompt and put thought on paper. I love this one. It makes writing, smooth and enjoyable.
And without any further ado, here are some journal prompts to, well prompt you to prob get you ready to let go, and to find answers, and peace.
