What Should I Journal About Daily? 5 Ideas to Inspire You

Journaling is an important part of many people’s day.


The benefits of journaling are endless. It has the power to help motivate you, inspire you, and help you grow each day.


Have you been asking yourself, “what should I journal about daily?” Here are 5 ways to keep your pen flowing every day.


1. Start With a Goal


If you want to keep yourself inspired to journal daily, you should dedicate your first page to a goal. This allows you to see what you want to achieve every time that you open your journal up.


Did you know that many people don’t set goals because they fear failure?


Fear is a great motivator. Use it to your advantage!


Seeing that goal in the front of your journal every day can keep you journaling and working towards your goal. If you’re looking for things to journal about, you can easily tie it back to your main goal.


For example, if your goal journal’s purpose is to get a new job, you can track your progress of how many resumes you’ve submitted each day. You can also have a section dedicated to how many interviews or responses you’ve received.


This will help you see that you’re making progress and working toward that main goal of getting a job. Goal journals can have you feeling motivated in no time.


2. Journal About Something Inspiring You Heard That Day


The great thing about journaling is that it allows you to save memories that you may otherwise forget. It’s a great tool to look back on later.


Sometimes in life, you’ll hear or read something that resonates really well with you. This is one of those perfect times to take to journaling.



Note from B: Back when I first played “Undertale,” it quickly had a huge impact on me. I instantly took to my journal to talk about how the game made me feel and why it was so impactful. To look back on that today still inspires me, and has me appreciating how much excitement and emotion the game gave me. That’s the beauty of journaling!



When something special comes along, log it into your journal. It could be a quote, a movie, or a news story.


This can be especially helpful when you’re stuck with no inspiration. And it makes for a beautiful experience for your future self.


3. Question Yourself


If you’re stuck on what to journal about daily, asking yourself questions can be a great way to spark an idea.


Here are some questions you can ask yourself:


  • How am I feeling today?

  • Did anything out of the ordinary happen today?

  • Are there any occasions (birthdays, holidays, etc) today?

  • What am I grateful for?

  • What was I productive with today?

  • Do I have any new goals to track?

  • Who or what impacted my life today?


By answering these questions, you’ll find more inspiration and ideas to journal about daily. There’s always something
