20 New Year Journal Prompts

2023 is finally upon us, which means many of us are setting resolutions, goals and intentions for the year ahead. 

The truth is that unless our goals are meaningful, personal, and manageable, we’ll quickly abandon them. If you’re looking to get focused before setting goals this new year, journal prompts might help. Journaling helps clear out the mental clutter and bring clarity, so you can focus on what is really important.

I’ve created a list of intentional journal prompts for the new year to help you reflect and identify what wasn’t working for you last year, and get clarity so you can determine what you want to manifest and accomplish in 2023. With these prompts, you’ll figure out what your goals and priorities should be in the new year so that you can direct your focus in the most productive ways.

  5. What good daily habits do you want to pick up this year?
