List Journaling: A Journaling Prompt

AN EXPLANATION

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.


EXAMPLES

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.
