Journaling is one of the things that has really helped me improve my mental health. I write all the time now and fill journal after journal. I use affirmations to help me feed positive thoughts to my mind and journal prompts to work through anything weighing on my mind. I write a lot about self-love in my journal because it is something I struggle with and writing about it in my journal really helps me work on it. I’ve been able to forgive myself for mistakes I’ve made and focus on the things I like about myself. Here are some self-love journal prompts if you want to try it out for yourself. I hope it helps you on your mental health journey.
