List Journaling: A Journaling Prompt
One fast way to journal is through making lists.
TIP: I recommend writing in lists of 10 at least. The more, the merrier.
Then, after you create lists, it give you the opportunity to do deeper journaling, which I'll explain in a little while.
Let me give you a couple of examples:
- List all your favorites, for example. (For example: What are your five favorite books and why?)
- List 10 things you count as blessings and explain why you count them blessings.
- List 10 places you have traveled. What memories did you make in each place?
- List all the places you've lived.
- List your favorite restaurants.
IT'S YOUR TURN (A JOURNALING PROMPT)
Tag. It's your time. What can you think of that you want to journal into a list?
TURN LISTS INTO DEEPER AND MORE THOROUGH JOURNALING
Once you create a list, then star or circle the top three that mean the most to you (or the top three things that speak to you most for whatever reason.
Then, take those top 3 one by one and do the following:
Journal about each of the top three. Expand them into a journal entry of more than one paragraph each (around 8 sentences each).
Then take one of those paragraphs of the three and expand it into a page of journaling. Be thorough and write, write, write, for as long as you can.
