About These Prompts
New to journal writing but don't quite know how to get started?
This set of daily journaling prompts challenges you to commit to doing journal writing in the morning for seven days straight.
Each morning for 7 days, you will receive one prompt that gets you thinking about the day you're about to face.
By receiving the prompts in your email, you are more likely to respond to them because your mailbox is a place you check daily.
The morning prompts ease you into journal writing and they help you learn more yourself through writing.
So take this challenge, and see what it does for you.

Why Journal Writing
Writing in a journal reminds you of your goals and of your learning in life. It offers a place where you can hold a deliberate, thoughtful conversation with yourself. –Robin S. Sharma
Journaling gets it out of you and on to paper; it is a catharsis. It helps you to understand, unload and heal. And what is amazing about it, if you go back to something you’d written a year ago—be it fear, struggles, something you couldn’t get past—when I went back and looked through all the things I thought were huge for me to get past, being able to read [about them] inspires me. It encourages me that everything is OK; this too shall pass. –Tyler Perry
There are certain things that make me relax, like writing my journal. That's the only time that I'm relaxing. It's the only time I really get to examine myself. –Jessica Simpson
My own habit had always been to write about the things that ticked me off in a given day. If I kept a journal at all, I kept it to vent. –Ariel Gore
