Journal Topics: What Things To Write About In Your Journal
If you write in a journal, chances are you have reached a place at some point when you simply did not want to write in your journal anymore. Perhaps you felt bored with the ritual and it seemed tedious and unfulfilling.
If you don’t write in a journal, maybe that is because you do not see how it is helpful in any way. Or more importantly, maybe you just do not know what you write about in a journal. Maybe you are afraid that once you get started, you will run out of things to write about.
In either case, there are endless things to write about in a journal. If you run out of ideas, just start looking around and paying attention to the world around you and you will find them. Here are some ideas for topics to get you started writing in your journal.
Some of the best topics to write about in your journal are the ones right under your nose:

For example, you might write about:
- The latest funny thing your child did this week.
- The long-time friend you were recently reunited with.
