31 Journal Prompts For Mental Health & Well Being.

This week may have been Mental Health Awareness Week 
but why not have a
Mental Halth Awareness Month?

Mental health is one of the most common unrecognized health issues we face and many suffer in silence. I thought it would be great timing to present 31 journal prompts dedicated to mental health and well being for the month of May. Especially  as it perfectly exampled the journalling technique I was discussing this week with my Just Pick Up A Notepad Group

What Was This Method?
 The Journalling method of monitoring an area or areas of your life by outlining 31 topics to cover over a month. A method I originally learnt from Kathleen Adams book Journal to the Self. Within the book, this method is called 'Topics Du Jour' a journal technique originally designed to meet the needs of business executives who were "too busy to stay on top of everything."

The concept is simple all you have to do is:

  1.  Number down a page from 1 to 31. 
  2. Write next to each number one are of your personal or professional life you would like to monitor.It doesn't matter what order you place your topics or whether you have a theme or not.
  3. Each day look at the topic that corresponds with the date. for example if today is the 4th of the month, find number 4 on your list. If today was the 26th find the number 26 and so forth.
  4. Use the headline of your topic as a prompt or springboard to journal on. What's happening this area of your personal or professional life? What action can you take in this area?

So here we have it '31 Journal Prompts For May Mental Health Awareness' I hope you find them useful throughout the Month of May, enjoy!
