Journaling Prompts for April

A few weeks ago I started posting weekly prompts on my Instagram account and it’s been going pretty well which got me thinking about starting a new monthly journaling prompt series here on the blog.

Once a month I will give you a list of journaling topics for every day. This will give you some new ideas for what to journal about and take the pressure off of trying to find something to write about every day.

Some days will be the same each month. For example…

At the beginning of each month, we will concentrate on setting our goals. Even if you did this earlier in the year, things change, so it can be a good idea to re-evaluate and update your goals each month.

In the middle of the month, we will see what progress we’ve made so far. This is a chance to re-focus on any goals that may have slipped off your radar.

At the end of the month, we will take a look back and write about the good things & favorite memories from the month. We will also evaluate our goals progress to see what still needs work in the upcoming months.

All of the other days will have new prompts to get you motivated!

This month will include a few basic, getting started daily prompts but in the future, I want to focus on a certain topic each month like renewal, nostalgia, hope, etc. Other themes can focus on a word of the year.

For example, My word this year is breathe so the daily prompts can center around how to better connect with that word.

What’s your word this year? Drop it in the comments and I will add it to the list of themes I’m putting together.


Ideally, you would journal a paragraph or two about each day’s prompt but don’t feel like you have to. It can be as simple as one sentence or a full page in your journal.

Be as creative as you like here…the sky’s the limit!
