I’ve had a revelation this year. In order to grow as a writer, I actually have to sit down and write something. That’s not always as easy as it sounds, though. After a day of doing all the mom stuff, I don’t have too many functioning brain cells to work with. I’ve found that keeping some journal prompts handy is a great way to fire up those neurons and then my writing muse takes over. Want to join me? Here’s some March Journal prompts to get you inspired!

How to Create and Use a Mood Journal
If you have been noticing that you find yourself easily triggered, falling into certain negative moods, or that you can’t seem to change your mood when you need to then
you might want to start a mood journal. Journaling is a great way to manage your mental health. Mood journals can help you determine not only what put you in a certain mood, but also what to focus on to remove negativity from your life and reduce bad moods. If this sounds like something that you’d like to try, here’s some simple ways to create and use a mood journal in your daily routine.
Setting Up Your Mood Journal
There are lots of ways to set up a mood journal. One way that people find that works well for them is to have a strip at the top of each daily page that has various faces. (Stickers work great for this!) These faces range from a full smile to a full frown or even pain. This allows you to simply pick the emotion you are. That is the first step. Underneath this strip of faces can be other strips or just an area to write your thoughts on the mood you are having. Other strips that you can use are scales that show how happy or sad you are. You can also expand
on these as you need to.
When to Use Your Mood Journal
Mood journals are ideal for moments in your day when you find yourself struggling with mood swings. Most people start mood journals as a way to focus on why they may be sad,
depressed, or feeling anxious and work through those issues. Many users of mood journals feel a rush from seeing their lives and their entries go from a negative extreme to a positive extreme overtime.
How the Mood Journal Helps You
The mood journal is a great way to focus on you. By writing down your thoughts and recognizing the emotion or mood connected to them you can help bring the focus back to you and making your life a bit better from the journal entries and routine. It takes the noise out of your head and that helps with clarity and stress reduction.
Mood journals are similar to trigger journals in the sense that both are done at the time of the emotion. This means they should be an option that is easy to take with you and
easy to use when you need to journal. Keep that in mind when creating your mood journal.
