I can’t believe it’s almost April. Seriously, we still have the Christmas tree in its box sitting in the dining room! If you’ve been wanting to start a daily journaling habit but have trouble finding the inspiration to do it, I’ve created this April Journal Prompt printable to help inspire you.
Journaling is one of the best ways to practice self care and improve mental health. Getting all the mental chatter out of your head and down on paper is incredibly freeing!
Don’t have time? Take a look at your time on social media. Gulp…I’m guilty of this myself. I’ve made an intentional effort to cut back on my screen time because it really interferes with my own writing, focus and productivity. Even a silly meme can be disruptive because then I waste more time checking back on notifications or to see who liked it!
Seriously, life is too short for this. If you love writing, then just make some intentional time for it.

Tips for Creating a Daily Journaling Practice
- Find a quiet place.
- Set a designated time for it. For me, writing has to happen in the morning. But if you’re a night owl, then go for it!
- Like any other good habit, it takes for it to become engrained. Put it in your planner so you don’t forget. And then stick with it!
