As we gear up for the New Year, I think it’s essential to sit down and reflect on all the things that happened during the year — both the good and the bad.

Journaling helps you to organise your thoughts, relieve stress, achieve your goals and improve mindfulness. Most importantly, journaling helps us to self-reflect which happens to be best way to discover a greater connection with yourself. It has helped me to learn more about myself by identifying patterns and habits that keep showing up in my life. It’s also helped me to find ways to deal with difficult situations instead of letting them consume me for a prolonged amount of time. Here are 30 journal prompts to self-reflect for the new year.
