Benefits of Daily Writing
Daily journaling has a huge number of benefits, a few of which include:
Stop the churning and reduce stress
Your brain will feel more rested after a session of journaling, especially if you use the time and daily prompt to delve into your feelings. As you write — or reflect on what you’ve written — unexpected realizations and solutions often emerge.
The more we write about events, the more we tend to remember small details. The act of writing helps to cement those details in our memory. Are you the type who makes lists for everything? Journaling is the same thing, but in a more ‘life-centered’ way.
Better physical well-being
Although not conclusively proven, studies show that writing for health can have a positive effect on your physical person. There’s nothing wrong with doing everything we can to get and stay healthy!
How to Use These June Journal Prompts
As a reminder, journaling is a completely personal experience… which means, ‘You do you!’
That’s one reason a list of single-word journal prompts is so powerful. You’re not locked in to answering specific questions or writing on pre-determined topics.
Instead, you can choose whichever word strikes your fancy for the day. And it doesn’t matter if you’re journaling your feelings or writing flash fiction. Even a faint glimmer of inspiration can quickly catch fire in your mind as you write.
However, if you have difficulty making decisions (I’m looking at you, fellow overthinker), I suggest beginning with the first word on the list and going in order day by day. Wasting time choosing the ‘best’ word each day can extinguish the creative spark — and we don’t want that to happen!
Most of these words also have more than one meaning, which adds an extra dimension of possibilities. Don’t be afraid to explore using these words in unfamiliar ways.
If you’ve never kept a journal by hand before, give it a try. Grab a large spiral-bound notebook or a smaller softcover journal and a pen, print out this list of prompts (click HERE to have the printable sent to you), and just start writing every day for about 20 minutes.
30 One-Word Prompts for June
Ah… summer! The beginning always feels like a magical season full of possibilities.
The green leaves are still fresh. The temperatures tend to be less intense than July and August. The days slow down. Smiles come more easily as we raise our faces to the sunshine.
For some reason, I usually think of June as a ‘gentle’ month, and most of these prompts reflect that idea. Enjoy!
