12 Spring Themed Journal Prompts

If you are a regular around here, you know I love to journal.  In the past, I’ve shared other journaling prompts and they’ve proven to be rather popular posts, so it seems like you guys love to journal too!


I don’t know about you, but I am always happy when the first day of Spring arrives!  To be fair, each change of season brings an extra thrill of excitement!  That’s one of the benefits to living in Connecticut…we enjoy 4 distinct seasons it inspires me to embrace each one and make the most of it (well, except for winter, when I just want to hunker down and get through it).

The disadvantages to living here, is that even though the calendar says it’s Spring, it’s not feeling overly Spring-y yet.  Now, a hearty New Englander may disagree with me, especially since we’re wrapping up one of the mildest winters I can recall since moving to these parts almost 18 years ago. 

But, the Georgia girl in me knows the beginning of Spring means flowers blooming, leaves magically appearing on trees, birds chirping, and warm breezes (it also means the arrival of the yellow dust storm of pollen that coats every available surface, nook, and cranny!).  

Regardless of the weather report, warmer weather, longer days, and beautiful views outside are on the horizon!

So…what does that mean?

It’s time to whip out our journals and reflect on the world that’s changing around us, and check in with what’s going on within us!

With that in mind, I’ve compiled a list of Spring themed journal prompts - think Spring activities, new beginnings, a lighter approach to life, etc.

The beauty of journal prompts is that you can do with these what you like.  Take them as is, use them as a launching pad to even more self-reflection, create visual journal pages, etc, etc.  There is no limit, no right or wrong, and no judgement!

It’s all about taking a little time for yourself and reflecting on who you are, where you are, or what’s going on in your mind.

Getting the junk in your head out on paper can help you move into living more from your heart than your head and isn’t that a lovely way to walk through our days?
