About this app

A daily journal for self-compassion.

Be your own best friend, cheerleader, spiritual guru, etc. with our carefully crafted daily journal prompts. It’s an easy way to incorporate self reflection into your life, and reflect on all the things that matter.

Your diary is not just about writing what you ate for lunch. Instead, you can befriend yourself with thought-provoking prompts from day one. Reflect on your hopes and dreams, and really listen to yourself like a compassionate friend. If you’ve ever struggled to keep up with a diary, our daily journal prompts can remove the struggle of thinking of things to say, and make this journaling habit easy to maintain.

Each journal prompt comes with “Dive Deeper” questions to help you get the most out of your self care journal:
E.g. For the writing prompt: “Love is…”, reflect on Dive Deeper questions like “How do you show love towards others? How do others show love towards you? What was your first memory of feeling loved? Does love have a spiritual dimension for you? If so, how?”
The Dive Deeper questions help prevent writer’s block, making journaling a powerful wellness tool from day one.

A daily diary can seem daunting, even tedious — when in fact, journaling can be a powerful self care habit. Read through our reviews: you’ll find users who have used this app as a therapy journal, a self help aid, and a thought diary of everything important to them. Your daily journal can be a deeply rewarding wellness ritual that helps you write thoughts you might have otherwise ignored. We hope Prompted Journal helps you uncover more of what you’re meant be.

This writing app can feel like traveling through time. On day one, you’ll write a letter to your future self (1st prompt: Dear Future Me). About 3-4 months later, when the prompt recycles, you’ll be able to read your letter. While we love the physical diary, writing apps make it possible to instantly find the last time you answered the same journal prompt, or view ALL the times you answered the prompt at once. Watch your self esteem improve with each new cycle: your answers to journal prompts like “My biggest fear…” might show how you have overcome anxiety. This writing app becomes a conversation between you, your past self, and your future self. Your diary becomes a memento of how much you’ve grown. Just by incorporating a simple 5 minute journal habit into your life, you can get to know yourself again.

* Self care journaling for busy lives: 190+ journal prompts ready to go, recurring every 3-4 months.
* Daily reminders help you write and reflect every day.
* Create a PDF of your diary to print, email, or save.
* Daily journaling made easy.

Life is a journey, and our prompts are designed to help you reflect daily on where you’re heading. Write your thoughts on everything from mental health to love to self esteem. Make the five minute journal session you can squeeze into your mornings equate to five hours of talking with your best friend. Also, customize your guided journal by making journal prompts that only you can: e.g. “My dog Lucy and I…” With a wide range of topics you can reflect on, you can see yourself in from various angles.

Self help and self therapy are difficult because all the incredible books and spot-on teachings don’t force you to put them into practice. “Love yourself,” “Be grateful,” etc. sound simple, but can be surprisingly hard to do. We hope our writing apps turn apparently “simple” self help mantras like “Love yourself” into wellness habits you can practice daily.

* We specialize in writing apps that foster self care and wellness. Please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Doesn't work in landscape mode, so I can't use this with my Bluetooth keyboard. Looked promising though. In response to the developer comment, you should look at folding bluetooth keyboard devices. They are specifically for smartphones, and they come with a little fold-down shelf to rest your phone (usually horizontally, hence my comment). They allow you use your phone like a laptop. it's incredibly convenient when typing any significant amount of text.

Thank you for sharing, Anthony. At the moment, we are focused on making the app run as well as possible on phones. Once we add some key features we still think are missing, we will start optimizing for tablets/iPad straight away!

I love this app. As someone who loves the idea of journaling but lacks the patience and follow through to journal in a physical notebook, this app has been perfect for me. I love that you can set it to your own prompt pace to determine your own level of ability and being able to achieve a daily journal even if it is just one prompt. It's an easy handheld way to reflect on the past and look to the future. I would definitely recommend this to others.

This has been great for expressing my feelings and reflecting on myself! I'm using all the free features, but they're not bad at all. The prompts get me thinking, and doing one a day is perfect for me. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for journal prompts to aid with their mental health and self-reflection journeys.
