(Spoonie Edition) Daily journal prompts to help ease anxiety, experience gratitude, and heal
Sis, somedays are hard. You’re experiencing the kind of fatigue where you need a nap after a shower. You’re symptomatic, your bowels do whatever they want to do without warning. Your continuous glucose monitor needs replaced. The clinic has you running in circles to coordinate labs and some idiot in the billing department accidentally charged you $400 for a cotton swab. I’ve been there. However, when those days happen, having journal prompts for self discovery can help you decrease anxiety and improve your sense of self-worth.
This month, I want to bring you a 31 day hybrid challenge for journalling and self discovery. The goal is to empower you to be the best version of yourself you can be, regardless of your health. I know summer can cause a lot of flares and COVID forcing us to stay inside is frustrating. This is an opportunity for you to self reflect on what and who in your life is the most important. It gives you the opportunity to contemplate where you want the rest of the year to go. We have a saying in our practice, “where the mind goes, energy flows.”
If you’re feeling down because summer is in full swing and you can’t enjoy it the way you want to, try these daily journal prompts for self discovery. I promise these questions will challenge you and encourage you. Many spoonies are reaching out and asking me dating advice, like “what do I do if he ghosts me?” I’d like you to consider, the bigger question on your mind.
The bigger question is, “how do I love myself more?” And loving yourself always comes down to understanding who you are.Tweet
By the end of this challenge you will discover so much about yourself. I’ve found my best days occur when I set time aside every morning with my planner and write out the daily tasks. It’s a habit for me.
