Journaling for all things gut healing literally changed my life. 

I have so many journaling things to share with you in the upcoming year, but for today I’m getting prompts in your hands so you are fully equipped for the new year.

Now, in the coming year, you are likely to set new goals.

I am fully on board with goals – both small and large; new things are exciting – but for today I want to solely focus on prompts for personal growth with your health, gut health in particular.

It is the most important thing to me and obviously why I show up here week after week.

If you’re ready for my journal writing prompts and you have that pen and paper ready, then here they are.

6 Journaling Prompts from A Gutsy Girl’s Bible: a 21-day approach to healing the gut

The first 6 come directly from my book, A Gutsy Girl’s Bible: a 21-day approach to healing the gut.

They are perfect for this time of year, but honestly? Any time you choose to engage with these is a good time. 

  1. These are my personal thoughts on food and lifestyle vs. drugs and medications________.
  2. Here are XX ideas for how I can implement more sleep into the new year_____.
  3. The 21-day plan is a temporary elimination diet. How many times have I engaged with an elimination of sorts only to have it extend to 1, 2, 3+ months with no results? (Think about this, read it again, and then journal.)
  4. ____is a piece of the healing puzzle I have not yet focused on with full effort.
  5. Journal your thoughts on this — Think about something, anything, in your life that you have resisting due to one fear or another. How has this been holding you back?
  6. How can I slow down today and embrace this journey even more?

If you want to really dig into the book, consider the Bible Course that goes with it, which is complete with 9 pre-recorded zoom calls, weekly discussion threads, over 50 brand new, downloadable PDF’s to accompany the book, and bonus content galore.

Get access to the course today. Remember: can also use code NEWYEAR23 at checkout from today through January 2 to save 30% off the course. It’s worth every penny, if I might say so myself 🙂

Moving on…..here are some journaling prompts I extracted from Healing Blooms from Within, which is the A Gutsy Girl 90-day gut healing journey journal.
