What Is Journaling?

Journaling in its simplest form is just writing down your thoughts, feelings, ideas, goals, and dreams. It is a creative way of processing your thoughts, feeling, and reflections.

It allows you to then process and develop your own personal growth with those ideas, thoughts, and emotions. You can then set goals, create a good habit or develop your future self.

Hi I’m Gem

I am a busy Christain wife & mama. I have been married for the last 15 years to my best friend. We have four wonderfully individual children together, 15, 13, and 3 (x2). 

We have lived in two different countries, traveled halfway around the world with our children, and back again. Experiencing some unique cultures, languages, and people.

I found God along the way too. It’s now my mission to share that journey with you and help you in your journey with God, your family, and your kitchen too. 

By giving you the tools and resources to help you grow closer to the Lord, understand your family more, and develop your skills in the kitchen. Each of us has a god-given gift or talent that he created us with for His purpose.

And if this is your first time visiting Mama & The Word, put a heart in the comment box below so I can officially welcome you to the community. 

What Are Morning Journal Prompts?

Morning journal prompts are exactly what they say they are. They are questions that prompt you to consider or reflect on different aspects of your life.

They can be serious questions and also fun too. Prompts are a great way to focus your mind on certain questions or areas of your life.

They can help you to have a better understanding or lead you to better understand why you do certain things.

Sometimes they can bring you clarity on a situation you find yourself in or lead you to a big breakthrough too.

It allows us to consider difficult questions that we avoid or think about things that we would like to change or find growth in new habits.

So let’s look at some of the benefits of journaling below.

What Are The Benefits Of Journaling For Mamas?

For myself, I didn’t think I had the time to journal as a mother of four children as well as work, housework, homework, and anything else family related that you could throw-in.

As mamas, we can give ourselves so many tasks to do daily but we take little time to enjoy the things that we actually want to do for ourselves.

We deem it as selfish or a luxury rather than seeing it as a necessary part of filling up our own cup before we can pour it into others.

Health Benefits For Mama’s

It has been shown that journaling can have positive health benefits which are as follows.

  • helps people identify and accept their emotions
  • aids in managing or reducing stress
  • ease symptoms of mental health
  • help reduce blood pressure
  • strengthen your immune system
  • aid better sleep
  • increase better overall health

For all of those times when you have found yourself tired and frustrated. Overwhelmed and alone, this is when we need to realize that we need to take some time for ourselves.

To rest and replenish our energy so that we can be the best wife, mothers, daughters, and friends we can be.

We need to rid ourselves of negative emotions and take a deep breath and find some positive energy to renew our spirit with because then we can move forward in the right direction again.

So pick a question each day and answer it wholeheartedly without the fear of scrutiny or judgment. It’s just you, your thoughts, and some paper. Just write.
