These are my favorite journal prompts to end the day. Each one of these prompts will help you reflect on your day, your actions, and how you want to show up in this world. Pair these with my 9 Journal Prompts for a Positive Start to the Day for the ultimate journaling routine! I promised both of these to you in my article on Why You Need a Daily Gratitude Practice to Improve Your Mental Health.
