Continuing our series on daily journaling prompts, here is a list of journaling topics for every day in February! This gives everyone some new ideas for journaling, and can help take the pressure off to think of something to journal about every day, especially for people doing our Page Per Day Challenge.
Some days are the same each month:
At the beginning of each month we write our goals for the upcoming month. Even if you did this earlier in the year, things change so it’s a good idea to re-set and update your goals each month. We also write what we are looking forward to this month.
Mid-month we see what progress we’ve made. This is a chance to jump-start any goals that have slipped off your radar and regain focus.
At the end of the month we write about good things/ favorite moments for the month, and evaluate our goals progress to see what still needs work in the upcoming weeks.
All the other days have new journaling topics and writing prompts!
Despite being the shortest month, February can sometimes seem like the longest (especially if you are in the northern hemisphere and are ready for winter to be over already!). So this month the theme is happy and positive! Let’s keep things light and cheerful to get us through this month with smiles on our faces!
