Many of us often get into an overthinking mode which leads to a bad mood, frustration, and negative emotions and can ruin your entire day if doesn’t get addressed.
Journaling is a way to do this. When you sit in a quiet environment and write things off of your mind, your mood improves, and you feel better and instantly excited for the day.
Now, you might wonder what to write in your journal (especially if you are new to it).
Well, you can write about almost anything and everything happening in your life, whether it’s a good experience or a bad one. It will make you will feel better instantly.
If you are someone who often gets blank and can’t think of what to write, in this article, I will provide 6-morning journal prompts to give you some ideas.
PS: If you are still thinking about starting a journal, I would recommend checking out the post on

1) What Are My Top Three Priorities For The Day?
Write what your top priorities are for the day. While writing your tasks for a day, make sure it aligns with your future goals.
You can also write these in different areas of life, like- career, health, and self-improvement.
Now, if you have been reading my articles for a while you’d know I always suggest not writing more than three priorities for a day to focus on quantity work.
It’s one of my favorite morning journal prompt that I write to make sure I am on the right track.
If you struggle to stay productive and often find yourself tangled up doing only one task, you can set timer on your phone, so you will know when it’s time to switch the tasks so, you won’t spend your entire day doing only one thing.

2) How do I want to feel at the end of the day?
When you don’t write the tasks and don’t set proper intentions for the day, you may feel like there’s something missing at the end of the day when you go to the bed but you just can’t figure out what that is.
How do you want to feel today when you go to bed at night? Do you want to feel satisfied with all the work you did during the day?
If so, how can you do that? What changes needs to be made? Write all of them down.
If you have got any other questions in your mind, write that down too.
3) What Is Something That I Am Grateful For
We don’t usually notice, but we are grateful for many things in our lives – having a roof over our heads, food in the fridge, a steady source of income, and people who love us from the bottom of their hearts.
Trust me; there’s so much to be grateful for.
The benefit of writing things you’re grateful for is that you instantly start seeing the positive side of your life, and all your fears and anxiety start vanishing.
It’s also scientifically proven that when we start seeing positives in our life, we start attracting positive things in our life.
4) How Am I Feeling Right Now?
When it comes to writing down your feelings, being honest with yourself is most important.
If you are feeling happy – that’s great – write it down and also write the “why” of what makes you happy.
If you are feeling not-so-good, then it’s okay too. We can not be happy 24/7, and life is all about ups and downs.
Write down the reason why you are feeling that way, and is there anything you can do about it?
If it’s something you have no control over, accept it as it is (I know it’s easier said than done) and stop trying to change it.
5) Recap of your previous day
We all know that life is about learning and growing.
Here’re a few questions you can ask yourself:
- What have you experienced yesterday?
- What can you learn from it?
- What can you do today to go one level further from your previous day?
Write down everything you did or whatever happened to you the previous day.
PS: Don’t get into an overthinking zone while writing down about your previous day. Remember, it’s past, and it’s gone.
