Welcome back, journalers! I am so glad you’re here. Journaling is a practice in my own life that has helped my find clarity, peace, and growth. I hope to share that with you here in a way that makes it simple, sustainable, and enjoyable. These June journal prompts and journaling printables were made with love (and a little help from the universe!), and will guide you through the month and help you start or grow your own journaling practice.
June is special. Summer is wide open before us. The normal “rules” don’t count as we live on summer time, with long days and warm nights. It’s kind of magical, isn’t it?
Also – side note – this month’s sunset beach theme is inspired by two things I love… going “home,” to California (Texas is home…but I love going back to where I was born and raised), and also going to one of my favorite places in Texas – the gulf coast!
You can find previous month’s prompts here (you can do any of these prompts at any time…some prompts have a seasonal feel to them, but they will translate well to any month):
June Journal Prompts
I have provided 30 prompts – one for each day of the month. You can go through the list in order, mix it all up, or skip the prompts entirely that don’t interest you. You may find that one prompt really resonates with you and want to journal on that for several days, or even for the entire month. Remember that journaling is very personal and that there is no “formula” for doing it right. Most of my own journaling involves just writing out my thoughts and feelings based on things I was feeling, something I experienced, or something that I needed to work out in my head and heart.
How to Use These June Journal Prompts
There is no right or wrong way to journal. You may find yourself journaling for pages and pages on one prompt, and only writing down a word or a short sentence for another. That’s totally okay! This is your journal, and your journey.
Some of these prompts have a spiritual feel. That’s because for me, journaling is a spiritual practice. However, if that word doesn’t resonate with you just replace anything of that nature with “highest self” – that is really what we are all working towards here.
I do recommend incorporating a gratitude practice into your journaling practice. All you need to do is write down one thing you’re grateful for each day (although you can certainly write down as many as feels right – here’s a lot more help if you are new to gratitude journaling!).
How to Use These June Affirmations
I have included a printable page of affirmations for you, as well as a place in the printable journaling packet that encourages you to write your own affirmations. You can write them down (I always recommend this) and/or say them out loud. Saying them out loud is very powerful! You can also use these as a mantra if you meditate, or just as reminders to yourself throughout the day. You can read this post about how to use affirmations for more help – I really believe in affirmations and think they have a place in your journaling practice, too! 🙂
Here are your June Affirmations:
- I am free.
- I can change with the seasons.
- I accept all abundance into my life.
- I make a difference in the world.
What Type of Journal to Use
Again – no rules here! Use whatever journal you like the best. I have included journaling printables here. You may want to use these (as you’ll see, I have one for “long form” journaling and one for shorter entries). I’ll be releasing new ones every month, so you may want to use these and keep them together in a binder or folder. Or you can use any notebook you have around the house. Some people like to keep a digital journal (hmmm…like a BLOG!), or just keep a file on their laptop. I type a lot faster than I write, but I always use a pen and paper to journal with. It just feels more cleansing to me.
You don’t need anything fancy or expensive to get started though. Truly, all you need is a place to write. <3
I have written out all 30 of the prompts below. You can download the May Journal Prompts, along with the Journaling Printables, at the bottom of this post.
