Light Journal Questions

As I discussed in a previous post, I had never had much luck with the Morning Pages, so decided to take more of a journaling approach. 

Using questions that ask about joyful things, I let my writing bring out what might be bothering me under the surface. If I start to feel uncomfortable, I lean into it and seek what might be the troublesome root of my discomfort.

  1. What does your perfect front door look like?
  2. Where is your favourite holiday destination? 
  3. Describe a  window, what it looks like and what you see through it.
  4. Write a list of animal names and why you might call them that.
  5. What is your favourite meal to make and why?
  6. Write about a time you were physically hurting. 
  7. What does the perfect day look like? 
  8. Write about your five senses right now.
  9. Why is your favourite film your favourite film? 
  10. Imagine you are in a market – describe what you see and hear
  11. describe your favourite character in a TV series. 
  12. Think about a memory that always makes you smile. 
  13. Think about a romantic trope you like and why (e.g. enemies to lovers)
  14. What does coziness mean to you?
  15. Outline your perfect day trip in the UK.
  16. Write about a quality you appreciate in a loved one.
  17. When do you feel the most relaxed?
  18. How do you take care of yourself?
  19. Something you loved to do as a child, but no longer do. 
  20. Write about a time you felt loved. 
  21. What do you like to be complemented on and how does it make you feel?
  22. Describe an old bedroom you no longer live in. 
  23. Write about your childhood kitchen. 
  24. What are you most proud of yourself for? 
  25. Write about your favourite personality trait
  26. Describe your first friendship. 
  27. What five things are you passionate about?
  28. Are you an introvert or extravert, and why? 
  29. Pick one word to describe yourself, and explain your choice. 
  30. Re-write your favourite song as a story and how it makes you feel.
