Tailored Prompts for Student Diaries: Ink Your Journey

By Litzy Grijalba

Journaling is self-care. It is a great way to debrief whenever you need to take a load off and reflect. Many will even say it is as essential as showering. It is like having a theraputic daily meeting with yourself. It also serves as a stress reliever and a channel for your innermost feelings and thoughts.

Students are able to process experiences, reflect on feelings, and clarify thoughts. Give yourself some basic structure every day, week, and/or month with a little bit of reflection.

The Buccaneer compiled some easy prompts you can use:

What are the goals of this week?

Stay efficient, focused, and motivated by writing down a clear desired path of what you want to achieve. It also makes it easier for you to monitor your development and recognize your successes. Plus, it can serve as a reminder of what you need to prioritize and stay on track throughout the week. Try it out and discover how it can help you achieve your goals and be more productive overall!

What’s something you look forward to?

A great everyday journal prompt. Writing down your excitements helps to remind you of the wonderful things that are yet to come. Visualizing your dreams and goals on paper can help make them come true. You get one step closer while enjoying the present and discovering the joy in your jounrey in anticipation. As you take the time to consider your goals and objectives, it can also be a way for you to take care of yourself and decompress.
