Our top 30 favourite journal prompts for self-love and self-care

Journaling can be a really helpful and therapeutic way to relieve stress, feel gratitude and just generally clear out your head a little when things are becoming overwhelming. There's just something about getting your thoughts down on a page that can feel so cleansing for the soul and mind that many of us who started have found ourselves addicted to the practice!

Journaling can change how you see the world around you and is a great tool for active mindset change, helping us to feel more grateful more grounded or even just a little calmer. There's so much to be gained from it, there's no reason not to start! Check out some of our favourite journal prompts for when you need a little grounding or a little self love today.
