Journaling prompts: finding clarity

Each month I host a free 'Journaling for well-being' workshop. It's 30 minutes of support and inspiration for your journaling practice. We focus on two techniques:

1 - Wild writing, a free-style journaling method.

2 - Utilising guided prompts around a particular theme.

The theme for the session was 'finding clarity'.

Many clients come to coaching to find clarity, and without it, it can feel really overwhelming. All encompassing. They may lack clarity in one area of life, but notice it seep into other areas - leading to procrastination and an inability to make decisions. For some, it conjures up images of a muddled mind, or walking around in a thick fog. What images come to mind for you?

When coaching someone who is experiencing a lack of clarity, I may ask; ‘how will you know when you achieve it?’.

Our default response when we feel this way, may be to seek external guidance and advice. Journaling gives us the opportunity to come back to ourselves, to block out the outside noise and filter out distractions.

Come inwards, be patient and you will find the clarity you seek. Settle in and try these journaling prompts to support you:

  • What does clarity mean to you?

  • When did you last experience clarity and what enabled you to find it in that moment?

  • What is an area of life you would like greater clarity in?

  • What is getting in the way of you achieving that clarity?

  • What steps can you take to step towards increased clarity?

For more prompts and further reflection guidance check out my other journaling resources.

If you find these prompts useful, why not come along to one of my free journaling workshops which take place monthly throughout the year - the details can be found here.

Alternatively, you can download my free journaling toolkit to get your started.
