Journaling Prompts to Calm Fear & Anxiety
As many of us are spending more time in our own worlds (both external and internal), our emotions are changing frequently.
We are also navigating higher levels of anxiety and fear.
Journaling is a simple, yet powerful way to express yourself and let your emotions flow.
Journaling has helped me find solutions to my problems, identify and let go of things I can’t control, and change my perspective on the things I want to change but can’t.
It’s also helped me recognize my own strength so that I can worry less about what’s coming and trust more in my ability to handle it, whatever it may be.
I hope these journaling prompts bring you calm and deeper understanding.
Pick and choose the journaling prompts you want to write to.

Be honest with yourself and explore where your writing leads you.
