Your mental health journal prompt for the day

Mental health journal prompt is a way to connect with yourself. Everyone needs to do it. Today the prompt is happiness. Did you know that happiness is something you can create. Really, you can. You can add it to your life, like a spoonful of sugar in a bitter cup of coffee. Anyone can make lemonade out of lemons. Journal prompts are one perfect way to get your creative juices flowing and feel better. With the topic of happiness, you can create a feeling of serenity even when you’re down just by writing down a few words. Remembering a happy time can help you create more happiness by repeating it, not just unlocking it for a few moments. This is the beauty of journaling. Think of something and then act on it. Note to self. You might journal with a cool beverage in a quiet place.

What is your happy Place today. This journal prompt is about recovering a happy memory.

And then you can go to your happy place for dreaming about other things that will make you happy, not just remind you of happiness past. When you go to your “happy place,” you might picture yourself relaxing on a beach in Bali, fitting back into a pair of favorite old jeans, or landing that promotion you’ve been gunning for. But here’s the thing: Elation, achievement, and success aren’t the same as the warm and fuzzy feelings of happiness—and mixing them up may actually bum you out. That’s why we endeavored to learn what happiness really means, by interviewing a handful of people who have devoted years of their lives to studying it. Read about what their research and real-life experience has taught them; then use their wisdom and advice to boost your own joy. (Spoiler alert: Those old jeans will do more good in the giveaway bin.) read more
