62 Mindfulness Journal Prompts For Present Moment Awareness

Do you keep a journal?

If not, you might want to consider taking it up as a thoughtful goal for the year.

Journaling has a myriad of benefits such as enhancing creativity, reducing stress, and helping you process and heal your thoughts and feelings.

A journal is also a permanent record of your life journey that you can look back on over the years to see how you have changed and evolved.

This helps you become more self-aware, compassionate, and intentional with your choices and actions.

The daily act of mindful journaling has one other hugely compelling benefit — it is an excellent meditative practice.

  • When you write in your meditation journal, your mind must be fully engaged with your writing. 
  • It forces your brain to slow down to better organize your thoughts and consider the big picture.
  • In the flow of meditation journaling, past regrets and future worries lose their edge.
  • You, your mind, and your pen and paper become one in the present moment.

This state of mindful flow will occur regardless of the topic you are journaling about, as long as you are engaged in the process and find it enjoyable or cathartic.

But . . . you can also use a journal to enhance mindfulness beyond just the act of journaling itself.

What Are Mindfulness Journal Prompts? 

Mindfulness prompts are a way to kickstart a journaling session. They provide a topic or question to contemplate related to mindful living. The goal is to explore the ideas presented in the prompt to gain greater insight into yourself and the world around you.   

More than just a writing tool, mindfulness journaling prompts have several benefits. 

  • They help you stick to a routine. Sometimes it’s hard to come up with a journaling topic, and thinking of one takes time. Prompts help you keep to your daily routine and avoid dead time thinking of a subject to write about.
  • Mindfulness prompts can spark creativity and inspire you to think about something from a different angle.
  • Prompts eliminate anxiety, which keeps your blood pressure and stress hormones stable. Picking a journaling topic can be deceptively stress-inducing. 

What Is Meditative Journaling?

A mindfulness journal allows you to explore various practices of present moment awareness and to contemplate how these practices impact your well-being.

If you are a new or even a seasoned mindfulness student, writing about your experiences with meditation and mindfulness helps you master the practice, reflect on your thoughts and experiences, and provide a permanent record of your efforts at deepening the amount of purposeful intention in your life.

When you are mindful, you are intentionally aware of the present moment.

You consciously direct your awareness to whatever you are doing, thinking, or observing.

The skills involved in meditation journaling aren’t brain surgery, but the practice itself is harder than you might think.

To incorporate mindfulness into your daily life requires developing it as a habit.

That’s why meditative journaling about your mindfulness efforts can be so helpful. It serves as a reminder to maintain and enhance your practice.

What Should I Write in a Mindful Journal? 

You’ve probably heard of a gratitude journal, but what about a mindful one? What do you write in a mindful journal? How can it help?

The first thing to understand is that there are several ways to approach mindfulness. Some people use it to improve their emotional well-being, decrease anxiety, and combat stress. Others, however, leverage mindfulness as a goal-setting and -striving tool, using it to optimize their professional efforts.

What you decide to write in a mindfulness journal largely depends on your reasons for pursuing a present mindset. Possibilities include:

  • Restatement of Goals: Start your day by asserting your goals. You’re more likely to accomplish the prizes when you focus on them.
  • Emotional Considerations: What feelings and emotions are you currently experiencing? How do they make you feel? Is there any way you can shift your mindset?
  • How-Tos: Another mindful journaling technique is writing how-to guides. Lay out the details of accomplishing something. It could be as minor as making a cup of tea. Breaking something simple into micro steps will train your brain to think deliberately and in the moment.
  • Plans and Intentions: Delineating a daily schedule and intention for the day is another mindful journal method. Map out your micro-goals.  

Mindful journaling may turn out to be the thing that helps you move onward and upward.

How Do You Start a Mindful Journal?

You’ve done the research and are convinced of journaling’s benefits. But how’s it done? How do you get started and keep up with it? We’ve got a few tips.

  • Pick Your Props: People who love their journals and pens tend to stick with the process. So don’t skimp on this front.  
  • Set Aside Time: Like brushing your teeth, it’s best to journal at the same time daily. Why? Because it’s more likely to become part of your routine, which garners better results.
  • Reward Yourself: Come up with a small reward to use as a “carrot.” For example, on days you complete your journaling goal, treat yourself to a cup of your favorite herbal tea or a piece of dark chocolate. It doesn’t have to be huge; just be sure to discipline yourself not to indulge when you don’t complete the goal.
  • Squeeze in a Meditation: Journaling and meditation go hand-in-hand. Pairing the two can be a powerful force and motivate you to continue with the practice.

62 Mindfulness Journal Prompts for Meditation Journaling

Here are 62 mindful meditation prompts to kickstart your journaling practice:

1. I reflect on the people in my life who have made me feel loved and supported. I feel grateful for…

Gratitude is a mindfulness practice that opens you to joy, compassion, and appreciation of the life that sustains you. Begin your morning or end your day with contemplation on those who have made a positive impact on your life.

2. As I sit quietly, I notice each breath I take, following the intake of air through my nose and into my lungs, and the slow exhalation as I release the air through my nose. As I repeat this mindful breathing for several minutes, I notice my body…

Most mindfulness practices begin with your body by drawing your attention to your breath and the quality of sensation.

In ancient Buddhist teachings of “The Four Foundations of Mindfulness,” the first teaching is “mindfulness of the body,” which involves becoming familiar with and even loving the body. Body mindfulness anchors you in the here and now.

3. Today I sit quietly for a few moments and observe my thoughts as they float by in my mind. I don’t judge them, I just watch and notice. What does observation reveal to me about my thoughts?

Your own thoughts can trigger anxiety, unhappiness, and anger, which can keep your mind trapped in a constant negative loop.

This cycle happens because we are unconscious of our thoughts, and allow them to run rampant in our brains without challenging them.

4. At home, I choose a routine chore (like washing dishes or folding clothes) and give my full and focused attention to every element of the chore. This is what I noticed…

The opportunity for mindfulness is in everything you do, in every task and seemingly unimportant activity of your day.

When you align your attention and mental focus to whatever you are doing, you are truly living. You are here, now, experiencing the beauty and perfection of the moment.

5. As I meditate today, I notice my emotions and moods. As emotions and feelings arise, I simply name them without judgment. “This is anxiety.” “This is sleepiness.” In meditation journaling today, I discovered…

Meditation is the centerpiece of mindfulness practice, allowing you to cultivate an attitude of compassionate indifference to your thoughts by ceasing to identify with them.

During meditative journaling, you observe the patterns of your mind and learn to tame the incessant chattering of your thoughts.

6. Today I visualize the following outcome and the specific actions I’ll take to reach that outcome . ..

Visualization is a mindfulness tool using mental imagery to help you mentally rehearse an outcome or bring about a state of relaxation.

It can be used in daily life to relieve stress, enhance motivation, and add more power to your physical and mental efforts.

7. This morning I create a ritual around my morning cup of tea or coffee by paying full attention to all aspects of preparation, drinking, savoring, and cleaning up. This is how I celebrated my morning beverage, and how it made me feel…

Rituals are actions we imbue with meaning and significance that enhance our lives in some way.

They are performed in a prescribed way that lends an element of sacredness to the occasion, and they slow us down enough that we can connect to the present moment.

8. Before I eat a meal that I or someone else has prepared, I take time today to notice the food, smell the aromas and feel gratitude for the bounty before me. Taking this moment made me feel…

In our modern lives, there is little time to prepare, savor, and appreciate what we are eating. We become disconnected from our source of sustenance and energy.

Preparing food and eating it more mindfully not only allows you to be present with the experience, but also can help you prevent overeating, lose weight, and become more aware of your body’s needs.

9. I spent time today being fully present and engaged with someone I care about. This is how I spent my time with him/her, and how this time together made me feel…

Being present with someone means you are fully attentive, engaged, and focused on the other person. You aren’t looking at your phone, distracted by the television, or thinking about the next thing you need to do.

You are actively listening, responding, and showing with your words, expressions, and demeanor that you are completely in the moment with this person.

10. Today I sit outside in a quiet spot in nature. I close my eyes and take a few deep, cleansing breaths. Then I just listen. I notice all of the sounds around me. This is what I heard and experienced by listening to nature…

The beauty and simplicity of nature are what make it so ideally suited to practicing mindfulness. Unlike our daily lives and the hectic world around us, nature’s allure is often subtle.

The simple experience of walking outside in your own backyard is a great opportunity to practice mindfulness.

11. When browsing for unique gifts or self-care items, I take a moment to reflect on what I’m hoping to find. I picture certain objects in my mind and take a moment to reflect on why they bring me joy and why I might feel compelled right now to buy more than I currently need. 

Shopping for yourself isn’t something you should feel ashamed of. Reflect on what you’re feeling as your shopping cart fills with items you want to buy.

And reflect, without judging, on the thoughts and emotions that come as you browse, skim your cart, and see the changing number at the bottom. 

12. I take a moment to look over the work I’ve done and to feel proud of it. I allow myself to admire details that came to me while in the creative flow state and to feel grateful that my job allows me to experience this on a regular basis.  

It’s good to take pride in your work when you’ve given it the care and effort it deserves.

Describe a finished work and any sensations associated with it. Write about what you admire most and what you feel when you’re being honest about your admiration and pride. You’re allowed to be grateful for your gifts. 

13. I’m taking the time today for a mindful walk, somewhere I can reflect on how it feels as I take one step after another and on how my environment influences my thoughts and emotions. Before and after I take my walk, I reflect on what I’m feeling.  

Taking a mindfulness walk can help you release nervous energy while you take note of your surroundings and any sensations you feel — physical or intuitive.

woman with eyes closed sitting at table mindfulness journal prompt

Describe what you notice and the thoughts that come to mind as well as any particular thing you focus on for mindful enjoyment. 

14. As I move from one pose or position to another, I pay attention to the way my body feels — the sensations of the muscles expanding and contracting as I slowly and mindfully transition. I pay attention to my breath, too, as I inhale and exhale in time with my movements. 

Write down what you notice and remember from your workout session, including how you felt as you changed posture or slowly, meditatively worked through a set of movements.

You want to be aware of how your body feels, out of respect for it and to obtain the best results. How do you feel and what thoughts come when the workout is over?

15. I’m preparing to write a letter to someone, and I’m thinking about what I want to communicate to them. I pay attention to what I’m feeling as I plan my message and carefully choose the right words. Writing this letter makes me feel…

Writing a letter to someone, whatever its purpose, can be stressful and emotionally draining. Allow yourself to notice random thoughts to come and go as you put pen to paper or type the message out.

What physical sensations do you notice, and what relation do they have to the words you’re writing? 

16. I’m sorting through my possessions, one category at a time, starting with my clothes. I take one piece after another and ask if it sparks joy while reflecting on my immediate, internal reply to that question. I record the thoughts and feelings that come with one of these items.

What are you feeling as you hold up a particular item of clothing? Do you remember how you got it and what you felt toward it at first sight?

What physical sensations and feelings do you notice, now, as you hold it up. What do you want to thank it for? What do you hope it will bring to its next owner if you’ve chosen to let it go?

17. I’m fond of the plants I’ve chosen for my home, and I take pleasure in tending to them. I call each by name as I approach it with the watering can, looking it over and talking to it as I give it as much hydration as it needs. 

You feel a connection to these plants, and you honor them by caring for their needs. What are you feeling as you carefully water one of them?

Do you remember how it came to you, and what you felt when you first saw it? What sensations and details do you remember, and what comes to you now as you give this plant your personal attention? 

18. I’m taking time out for a shower or a hot soak in the tub, and I collect everything I need to ensure I make the most of this time. I mindfully set each item where I need it and reflect on what I’m feeling and thinking in this moment.

You need this time to care for yourself. Take note of how the water feels against your skin when you start and how it acclimates to the water’s temperature.

What sensations do you love most about this bath or shower? Take a moment to simply enjoy them. Don’t judge the thoughts that float in and out, but gently remind yourself not to rush.

19. I’ve spent some money on a trip to a salon for a haircut and style. Since I’ve decided to pay a professional, I mindfully enjoy the pampering with gratitude and take note of what I’m noticing and feeling in the moment. 

What do you feel when you enter the salon? What smells and sounds do you notice right away, and how do you feel about them?

Think of the chair you sit in and the sensations of having your hair gently washed and rinsed and your scalp massaged. What scents do you pick up from the products your stylist uses? 

20. I’m taking a moment to myself with a favorite candle and a hot mug of something comforting. I admire the flame as I take sips from my mug and feel the warmth traveling down to my stomach. I notice thoughts as they come and pay attention to what I’m feeling. 

Feel the warmth of your hot drink in your mouth and throat and down in your belly as you watch the candle’s flame. Where the warmth doesn’t reach, you might feel a chill. Take note of where you feel it and when.

Describe the sounds, smells, and other sensations you’re picking up, whether you’re listening to music or just enjoying the quiet. 

21. I’m making some changes to my creative space by carefully arranging or rearranging items — removing some things, adding something new, and surveying the effect. I take note of how each item feels in my hand, bringing up sensory details that encouraged me to choose it. 

There’s meaning in how you arrange your things, even if you’re not consciously aware of it. Think of how you feel whenever someone carelessly nudges one of those items out of place.

Move one, now, and take note of how you feel. Note how the object itself feels to your hand as you move it and whether you feel a chill or a vague sense of discomfort. 

22. I’m looking through the streaming options on Netflix, etc., and paying attention to how I feel about the shows or movies I’m considering. What am I in the mood for? What images or emotions come up? How do I feel in my chosen position?

You’re looking for something to watch, and there are so many options. Describe how you feel when looking through them. Notice the feel of the mouse in your hand or your fingers on the navigation pad.

How do you feel about a particular show you’ve added to your queue but don’t really feel like watching right now? What do you want to feel? 

23. I’ve received a gift that fills me with immediate dread and paralysis. I’m momentarily stunned into silence as the giver waits for a rapturous response. I feel my face smiling as I scramble for the right words. Thoughts flood my head, and I observe them, just as I’m aware of my feelings. 

This is the stuff of nightmares. You open a gift right in front of the giver, and it’s something you would never buy for yourself (or anyone else).

What are you feeling right now as you look at the gift and then up into the face of the one who gave it to you? What do you remember feeling as you touched the item? What positive attributes do you notice? 

24. I’m sitting, journal and pen in hand, as I prepare to write down my thoughts and feelings. What do I feel about my penmanship, about the feel of the pen and paper? What power do I feel as I fill each page with meaning? 

Words you write by hand have a special power, and you can feel it as you write them. What sensations come over you as you write honestly, without censoring yourself?

What thoughts and feelings come and how do you respond to them? What space are you using for this, and what feelings do you associate with it?

25. I’m preparing for bedtime with my own nightly ritual. I describe this ritual and how I came to adopt it, along with what I feel and think as I carry out each task. What details or sensations do I most look forward to? What are my last thoughts before I fall asleep? 

Some rituals bring comfort, while others might feel more like an obligation you have to “get over with.” What sensations do you associate with your favorite nighttime rituals?

What do you do to make the more onerous tasks more enjoyable or meaningful? When are stressful thoughts most likely to surface, and when do you feel most at peace?

26. Today’s focus is/was concentration…

Focus will get you far. Research indicates that the ability to concentrate is more critical when striving for goals than intelligence. Start your day by waxing poetic about sticking to the tasks at hand. 

Set an intention to prioritize focus for the day, and list ten things you can do to ensure you stay on track.

27. Being a good listener is an integral part of mindfulness. How can I work on my attentiveness skills today?

Listening is just as vital as using your voice. Journal how you can better engage in conversations by listening and thinking before speaking. 

28. Living in the present is the principal tenant of a mindful existence. What affirmation can I use to pull myself back into the present moment?

Both mindfulness and meditation are about refocusing your attention. Think of a few affirmations to use throughout the day to bring your focus back to the moment.

29. I love my body. What can I fill it with today to demonstrate my adoration, respect, and gratitude? 

Mindless eating is a common problem. To break the habit, journal about what nourishing things you can consume during the day. Don’t forget to also consider what things to avoid!

30. Fretting about the future hinders mindful paths. Today, in what ways can I stop myself from thinking ahead? 

As we’ve mentioned, mindfulness is about living in the present. Think about what you can do to keep yourself from traveling to future worries and stay in the moment. 

31. Self-love is essential to mental health, but it’s not easily won. How can I practice self-love today?

You deserve to be treated as well as you treat other people. What can you do today that reinforces your awesomeness and helps you harness your power?

32. When was the last time I spent the day concentrating on compassion? Has it been a while? How can I change that today?

Practicing compassion feels excellent. Not only should you extend it to others, but showering yourself in it is also necessary. Journal about ways you can give yourself a break today.

33. Although it may be hard to remember when battling a period of self-doubt, we all have talents. What are three things I do well?

People not used to patting themselves on the back may find this exercise difficult. After all, we’re taught not to “brag.” But bragging and acknowledging your strong points are wildly different things, and the latter is essential for good mental health. 

Spend some time thinking about your strengths and how you can leverage them.

34. Not everything is bright and rosy when it comes to mindfulness. It’s also about getting to know the less-than-shining aspects of our personhood. So today, I’m permitting myself to celebrate three pet peeves I proudly maintain.

Reese Witherspoon’s character in Big Little Lies famously says that she loves her grudges and pampers them. At first, it may come across as a terrible thing to say, but in truth, it’s a sentiment we all feel every once in a while. 

Do you have any less-than-ideal pet peeves you’ve decided to “baby?” Explain what they are and how they serve you. Today, it’s all about accepting and loving your imperfections.

35. Do I procrastinate? If so, why?

Procrastination can be a goal killer. Do you have a problem putting things off to a dangerous degree? If so, consider why and how you can turn things around.

36. People rarely talk about it, but admitting wrong is difficult for 99% of the universal population. Today, I’m doing a deep dive into possible reasons.

Part of being mindful is knowing when you’re at fault and learning to apologize sincerely when necessary. Doing so will help you release stress and maintain healthier relationships. 

Write about a situation when you found yourself unable to apologize for something you know you did wrong. What dynamics were at play? Could you say sorry for the incident today? Why or why not?

There are no wrong answers. And remember, nobody will read this, so be as honest with yourself as possible.

37. Learning to say “no” can have an immeasurably positive impact on my life. What are five things I can start rejecting today?

Save your sanity by learning to say “NO!” You don’t need to be rude, but you should get a grasp on what your schedule allows and what fulfills you. Think about what’s currently on your plate and what you wish weren’t. Can you extricate yourself from those things? 

38. Dreams can provide insight into how one’s life is going and where it’s headed. How well do you remember yours? What’s the last dream you remember?

Dream journaling is a great way to practice mindfulness. It’s best to do it as soon as you awake so you can remember as much as possible about your nightscape. Try to be as detailed as possible and link what happens in the dream to your waking life.

39. Good or bad, if I could say anything to anyone today, what would it be and why?

We all have moments where we think of the perfect comeback or statement hours after a conversation. Take time to correct the situation in your journal. Write down what you should have said. If you want, create a whole dialogue.

(Aspiring writers: This exercise will get your creative juices flowing.) 

40. What five things do you like best about the place you live now?

Focus on big and small things. Since the goal is to activate your mindfulness brain, think about the present and what makes you happy now, not what may warm your heart in the future.

41. What five habits am I most passionate about changing?

Perfect people don’t exist. We all have faults, and that’s okay! However, changing bad habits can be a worthwhile pursuit if they’re getting in the way of your health and happiness.

So think about what habits you could crush that will help you discover the best possible version of yourself, which, again, will be flawed — but less so.

42. A lot of mindfulness work involves shutting down “the voices in our heads.” So today, I’m doing the opposite. 

Attentively listen to your brain chatter and write down everything you hear. Bad or good, jot it down. Getting your thoughts down on paper frees up mental space and allows you to see things more objectively. 

43. If I could wear a warning sign, what would it be and why?

Imagine we could all wear warning signs about our daily mood. What would yours say today and why? Who knows, maybe you’re in a great mood. Whatever the case, be honest about your emotions.

44. Make today a culinary day. What foods do I love (whether “good” or “bad”)? How can I treat my tastebuds today?

Above, we suggested journaling about what will nourish you for the day. This prompt is about what will satisfy you — even if that means eating chocolate cake and rich bearnaise sauce — because cheat days are allowed and sometimes necessary.

45. Imagine: I just won the lottery. $10 million. What would I do?

Daydreaming too much can be a problem. But sometimes, it’s precisely what the mental health doctor ordered. 

For your journaling session today, imagine how your life would change if $10 million landed in your account. Would you continue to work? Where would you move? Is there anyone with whom you’d share the proceeds? 

46. I awoke this morning and found a time machine in my bedroom. What would I do? Where would I go?

This is another fantasy journaling exercise. It can provide insight into the issues you’re still grappling with, which can help you figure out what you need to be more mindful about. 

47. I woke up ready to try my hardest. What would that look like?

Plan out your day. Set aside time to work on your goals and get things done. Make a plan and a list that you can reference throughout the day. Only focus on the 24 hours ahead of you. Remember, this is a mindfulness exercise.

48. Cleaning calms me down. What item could I clean meticulously today that would bring me immense satisfaction?

Restoring something from dingy to beautiful is a very satisfying experience, and many people find it relaxing. If that sounds like you, think about what single item you could clean today that would bring you joy. 

Pick one thing only (toilet, lamp, shelf) and write about how you’ll clean it in detail. Don’t forget to think about how good it will make you feel.

49. I awoke in a state of rumination. What mantra or affirmation can I use today to remain mindful and focused on the present?

Rumination can ruin a day. If you’re struggling with it, the best thing to do is enlist a coach or therapist. During the day, however, a great way to combat obsessive thinking is by using a mantra. 

Pick one that helps you snap out of a negative thought spiral. Journal about why you need one and potential options.

50. Today, my brain needs to relax. It’s earned a day of mindless television. However, picking the line-up can be a fun, mindful exercise. How will I go about curating my day-long film festival for the day?

Be a program director! Pretend you’re in charge of curating a film festival for the day and plan it out. Do you want to watch comedies, dramas, or a mix of both? Or maybe reality TV is your jam. Whatever the case, think about it logically and map it out.

Will you be serving food and drink? Plan that out too.

51. I woke up feeling fabulous about myself. So today, I’m going to revel in that without feeling guilty.

Pen a stream-of-consciousness essay about how awesome you are! Allow yourself to revel in your greatness. Try to carry this confidence with you for the rest of the day.

52. I awoke today disappointed in myself for being unkind to [insert individual to whom you were less than kind]. How can I work through my guilt and not let it consume me today?

A tenant of mindfulness is not wallowing in the past. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t make amends for our poor behavior. Journal about ways to make amends with the person you belittled while forgiving yourself for the transgression. Consider the duality required to do both genuinely. 

53. Smell is one of the most profound senses we possess; it has the power to transport us to a different time and place. What smells take you to a happy time in your life?

In part, mindfulness is about getting in touch with our senses. How do we see the world? Taste it? Feel it? 

Smell plays a massive role in how we experience our surroundings relative to ourselves. So try adding a little sensory recall joy into your life today by considering the smell(s) that take you to a happy place in your mind.  

54. Nobody is perfect. We all behave like uncaring beasts at times throughout our lives. Today, how can I learn to forgive myself when my nasty side takes the reins? 

Many people mistakenly believe that mindfulness is solely about positivity. And while the ultimate goal is to see the glass half full, recognizing our own faults is part of the practice. One of the bravest things a human can do is turn the lens inward and see where they can improve.

55. Positive affirmations can help drag us out of a rumination spiral and back into the present. What positive affirmation may work for you today?

Researchers have proven that affirmations work! And their efficacy is more than just a psychosomatic phenomenon. Our brains are built to favor the thoughts that most frequently zoom around our neural pathways. So pick something positive to carry you through the day!

56. Learning to recognize one’s faults is a massive part of mindful living. Think about how you could have been kinder or more compassionate over the past week.

We all say things off the cuff that we wish we could take back. Think about how you could have handled a situation differently. Write it down so that you’ll have a better response when a similar problem arises in the future. 

57. Presence is a significant aspect of living a mindful life. In what ways can you be more centered and present today?

Many people let life live them instead of living life. Being the captain of your existence requires being centered and present. Contemplate how you can achieve that today.

58. What kind of person do you want to be? What does authenticity mean to you?

The happiest people are the ones who live deliberately and don’t try to be someone they’re not. Think about how you present yourself and whether it’s the true you or a simulacrum of what others expect you to be. 

59. What does kindness mean to you? In what ways do you extend it to others and yourself?

Kindness isn’t just about being thoughtful and decent to others; it’s also about being that way with yourself! Break down the elements of compassion, then assess how you manage and deploy those elements in your daily life.

60. Communing with nature is a powerful mindfulness activity that supports good physical and mental health. Think and write about how being outside makes you feel.

When was the last time you had a spectacular time spending the day outdoors? Write about it and consider how you can incorporate elements of that day more consistently.

61. When was the last time you felt great about yourself? Describe an exact moment in as much detail as possible.

It’s always a good idea to keep a stockpile of good memories and feelings on hand so that when life throws you a curveball, and you’re feeling crappy, you can call up the good times as a soothing exercise.

62. What is your relationship with vulnerability? Do you see it as a weakness? A strength? 

Increasingly, we’re told to be more honest and vulnerable, but many people are still uncomfortable with the concept.

Not only do they find it challenging to be vulnerable about their lives, but other peoples’ hard times cause them anxiety, too. Think about your relationship with vulnerability and the reasons why.
