Journaling is apart of my everyday, morning routine. After meditating, I like to spend a bit of time reflecting, and getting my thoughts onto paper. Whether this is writing a few things I’m feeling especially grateful for that day, writing down a to-do list, or just letting out a brain dump, journaling allows me the capability to express myself.

Since the weather is getting warmer and the sun is getting brighter, I’ve been enjoying taking my journal outside for some fresh air every morning and reflecting on the glorious summer months. A lot of my journal entries have revolved around my gratitude for the summer, hence why I decided to make this list of summer journal prompts. If journaling is a habit you haven’t yet gotten into, following a prompt could be a good way to start the healthy habit. Grab a pen and a pretty journal, and spend a few minutes each day reflecting on the sunny months.
