Hi Friends 🙋🏼♀️
Writing/journaling is such an important part of my self-care and healing process that it made sense to me to share prompts with you to try and inspire you to write more. ✍🏻
Journaling can be a very powerful tool in the healing process when it is done correctly and with focused intention. That is why for trauma survivors journaling prompts are so important. Too often, we can get lost in the weeds of our trauma when we free hand our writing (not that you can’t benefit from an occasional trauma dump into your journal) but with the help of prompts we can focus our thoughts and create a resource for reflection and data collection as you heal your wounds.
How Does This Work?
Take the following prompts and write each one at the top of the page in your journal for each day of the coming week beginning today. When you sit down to journal, remember to reflect on what you have already written to this point, and then write only about the prompt for the day.
This helps keep your thoughts focused as you process and unpack whatever the prompt manifests for you.
I hope this helps you create a seamless and beneficial practice for self-care and healing.
