10 Deep Journal Prompts to Write About

Journaling introduction

I’ve been journaling since the beginning of time. And while there are many different types of journals out there, I’ve found that the best ones involve prompts—or prompts followed by spaces for writing whatever comes to mind. That’s why these 10 deep journal prompts will help you get started:

What is your biggest strength?

This question is a great way to reflect on your strengths and how they can help you in your life.

Your strength is what makes you unique, so it’s an important part of who you are as a person. Sometimes we don’t recognize our strengths as much as others do because we’re not used to seeing them in ourselves. But when asked this question, it’s easy for us to see that there are things in our lives that bring joy or happiness—and we can use those things in any situation!

For example: If someone asks me what my biggest strength is (or vice versa), I would say “my ability to stay positive” because it gives me peace within myself when things get tough or stressful at work/school/home etc., which helps keep me going through difficult times rather than giving up completely like some people do when faced with challenges beyond their control.”

If you could have a conversation with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

Talking to people is important.

Listening is important.

Having conversations with people you admire, both living and dead, is also a great way to expand your mind and find new ways of thinking about the world around us.

Describe your most meaningful memories.

You may have a big or small memory that’s meaningful to you. It could be from your childhood, it could be from school years or it might even be from when you were younger and remember something about life before the advent of smartphones. You can also write about important moments in your life as an adult: retirement; marriage; children—the list goes on!

It’s important to write down these memories because they serve as reminders of how far we’ve come since those days when we were young adults ourselves.

What are five things that make you deeply happy?

This is a great question to ask yourself, because it will help you understand what makes you happy.

For me, traveling and eating good food are two things that make me feel deeply happy. So if I were to write about those two things in my journal right now, what would they look like?

How do you feel today? And how did you get here?

The first step to changing your habits is learning how they work. Habits are formed primarily through repetition, and the more you repeat an action, the more likely it becomes that you’ll do it again in the future. This can be difficult for some people who have trouble remembering what they did yesterday—but if you keep writing in your journal every day, eventually these memories will become easier to recall.

For example: If we look at our lives as a long-term project with many different facets (and each facet consists of several smaller projects), then our habits are just one aspect of this larger project called “life.” So when we think about changing our behaviors (e.g., getting up earlier), there is no need for us to focus solely on changing one specific habit at once; instead we should consider all aspects of our lives together so that we can make changes smoothly without any difficulty later down the line when we’re trying out new things!

What was the best moment of your life so far? The worst? Which moments changed you the most?

What was the best moment of your life so far? The worst? Which moments changed you the most?

The best moments in my life have been spent with people I love, whether it’s a family member or friend. The worst moments have been spent alone, lost in thought and unable to focus on anything else.

The most important moments in my life have been when I learned something new or experienced something amazing with someone else—whether that person was close by or far away (like when I went on vacation). It can be difficult to remember these sorts of things because they happen so fast! But if you write about them down carefully enough, it may help remind yourself why these experiences were so meaningful for you at that time period in your life.”

What’s one thing you wish someone had told you at age 10? 15? 20? 25? 30?

  • What’s one thing you wish someone had told you at age 10? 15? 20? 25? 30?
  • Why do I think it would have been helpful for them to say this to me when they did (or if they hadn’t), and how has that affected my life since then?
  • What would different choices made in these years have changed about my life as an adult, both now and in the future (e.g., career choices)?

If someone close to you died tomorrow, what would you most regret not having told them? Why haven’t you told them yet?

If someone close to you died tomorrow, what would you most regret not having told them? Why haven’t you told them yet?

This is a great prompt for writing about the past and how we deal with grief in our lives. It’s also an opportunity to express gratitude and love towards those around us. The deceased could be a friend or family member who has passed on. Or it could be someone who was important in your life but no longer exists today, like a teacher or mentor who taught you something valuable and changed the way you view the world.
