30 Mindful Days (guide to journaling)

Journaling is something I’ve always done. When I was young I got given a diary, my first entry was on the 8th of September 2004 and since then, I’ve never stopped writing. Throughout the years I have been through a lot of phases, sometimes I would write everyday, sometimes I would only write once a month, regardless, I have no doubt that journaling is a powerful tool for self-discovery and mindfulness.

I’ve always been a person with many thoughts, I am a natural overthinker. Therefore, I loved having a free space where I could say anything I express my crazy mind. It is incredible to look back and see how much writing my feelings down helped me rationalize irrational thoughts. Many times I would pour down my soul, allow myself to feel everything, and somehow end up feeling grateful and motivated by the end of the page.beta_design_simple_space_tattoo_by_dreamingkay-d7upbqwSelf-refection is not easy. Starting with a blank page is not easy, specially if you are scared of what you can find. But here are some prompts you can use everyday to reflect and practice mindfulness.
