From morning to night: 10 Journal ideas for all-day focus

If you're anything like me, you may find that some days feel like they slip away, without you having been truly focused or clear about what you're doing. 

It's always frustrating when you tell yourself you're going to have a productive day - yet the next time you look at the clock, it's 4pm and you're not sure where the time went!

If this sounds even remotely familiar, then these journal prompts are for you!

Journalling regularly (morning and night) can help emphasise its benefits and strengthen its impact, as you are continually building the skill and constantly reconnecting with yourself and your emotions.

These prompts are a great way to start the guided journalling habit, and to dive deeper into your self-reflection. 

So, with that in mind, here are some reflective journal prompts that can be used to touch in with yourself every morning and night!
