Things get busy, overwhelming, hectic, and stressful. Sometimes these are things we can control and somethings they are not. What I have come to understand is there are a lot more things that we can not control than things that we can. But what we can control is our self. For me I have recently started to have a whole new understanding around how I show up, what I do and say largely has to do with how I take care of myself. That is why I have made self care a major priority. One thing I do for self care is journaling. I came up with 7 self care journal prompts for women that I like to go through.
Why Self Care Journal Prompts Matter?
Often times we live a life that is so busy physically and mentally that we just don’t take the time to really discover how we are feeling about something. What did that experience bring up for me? Why did I show up in that way today? Did I avoid that conversation for a reason? When we create time to really evaluate ourselves we can understand ourselves better and seek to make different decisions moving forward.
When Should I Do These Self Care Journal Prompts?
These self care journal prompts were specifically designed to be done in the evening or at the end of your day. They are prompts that help you to evaluate your day and make a plan for the following day. If you prefer to journal in the morning you could probably tweak them to make it work.
The 7 Self Care Journal Prompts For Women:
- What did I do? What good did I do today?
- I’m I trapped in a routine? Was I fully engaged?
- Did I push hard enough or too hard today? (What are my action steps for tomorrow to balance this?)
- Have I neglected any areas of my life? Why did that take place?
- What character flaws showed up today?
- How did I feel today? (Explore energy, thoughts and emotions)
- What lessons did I learn?
How Will Self Care Journal Prompts Impact Me?
Personally, when I take a look at these things I understand myself better. I can identify what I am feeling and why. Often times I see what expectations I had and identify if I shared them or not. I tend to think more before responding to situations. Feeling more grounded is another benefit. I know what to focus my prayers on. You may experience some of these things as well. Or you may experience totally different things. But what I do know is self care journal prompts can only benefit us. Take the time to try out these prompts tonight to see just how it will benefit you!
