Christmas is a time that brings up all kinds of feelings and memories.
It is traditionally a time for family, and a time of fun but it’s also a time that can get some of us in our feelings and a time where we might benefit from reflecting and writing down some of our feelings so that we can process them.
Today we have a free printable journal, including 30 journal prompts with questions that will help you share some thoughts about the holiday season.
Using journal prompts helps to get you writing, especially if you are new to journalling or find it hard to open up, even just to yourself on paper.
Recently we shared a huge list of 90 thought provoking journal prompts for mental health, and today it’s time for us to turn towards the holiday season.
30 Holiday Journal Prompts
Use the following questions and prompts to get you thinking, writing and reflecting on the Holiday season which is upon us…
