Journaling prompts for spring
A nice notebook makes so much of a difference when you’re journaling. You can journal on any scrap of paper, but having a pretty notebook that lies open and contains thick, high-quality paper so your writing doesn’t feather, bleed, and show through makes the experience much more enjoyable.
Bound bullet journal notebooks are popular for journaling, but I’m personally a big fan of spiral bound journals because they lie flat. This makes the easy to write in without cracking the spine or spending half your time worrying about holding the opposite page out of the way while you write.
Alright, let’s see the journaling prompts! As mentioned above, keep scrolling past the list for the opportunity to download a free printable PDF with all of the prompts for easy reference.
