New Journal Prompts for Students

This post may contain affiliate links. You can read my Disclaimer for more information.

What I loved to do when I got to school while waiting for homeroom to start, was writing. I would write poems, short stories and anything that came to my brain. What I would have loved to write would be journal prompts.

Let us jump right into it since time is precious for students.

Why journal as a student

We all know journaling is one of the top 10 ways to reduce stress, brain dump and be creative. Being a student/teen has to be the most stressful time in life.

With the non-development of the brain, peer pressure, wanting great grades, getting into a good college, puberty and more.

Before we start with the prompts, make sure you read my Top Stationary Products You Must Own. This is very valuable information about what you need to start. You can also view my Journal Category page to get some more inspiration.

  1. Fantastic rhythm, please let me know when you make adjustments to your website so I may learn from you. How can I register with a blog website? I found the account to be really helpful. Although your broadcast gave me a clear and crisp knowledge of it, I was already partly aware of this.
