Journal prompts for the list lovers

It has been several months since I began sharing my Journal prompt series. I love sharing these with you and seeing people’s responses to the prompts.

The Perfect Autumn Journal Prompts in particular proved really popular on social media.

One of the reason’s I journal is because I love to use a pen and paper to write. Of course blogging is where my heart is but I love picking up a pen.

I will often write list upon list just to have a reason to write. Well that and because I love a good list.

When thinking about where my next set of prompts were going to take me, with my love of lists in mind, I decided it might be fun to come up with a list to write each day, so here goes.

Why a list of lists?

I know lots of people love a list and I feel that it is important to stop and remind ourselves of the important things in life.

By writing a list each day, it’ll act as a reminder for all that we love, all that we hope to do and achieve and remind us what we work so hard for. And maybe it’ll help you to prioritise as well… Bonus!


A journal does not always need to be serious or deep, it is important to enjoy it and use it as a chance to switch off at the end of the day.


I am looking forward to starting this one and using it as a time of reflection.


Happy journaling to you all, I hope you find these prompts useful and most importantly, FUN!

  8. What could be better than a list? A list of list ideas! Wow.

    I really like this post, and although we are now six days into November, I think I might try to do this for the rest of the month! I love how positive this is – it’s not really about self-improvement, it’s about gratitude, and I definitely think that most of us could use more of that. Particularly as Christmas creeps closer.

    Thank you for sharing this – it’s made me feel a little hopeful and a little reflective.
