How Keeping a Self-Esteem Journal Can Help Create and Sustain Well-Being.

Positive self reflection through journaling has been found to improve self-esteem and general well-being. Our Self-Esteem Journal Template provides an easy-to-use, printable resource that will meaningfully impact your client’s self-esteem by fostering a deeper, more positive understanding of oneself. With each journal entry, your clients will be one step closer to increased self-esteem and well-being.

How Does Journaling Impact Self-Esteem and General Well-Being?

Self-esteem reflects a person’s overall emotional evaluation of him or herself. Example questions to jumpstart your clients critical thinking process include the following:

Psychological Question Example Prompt
Who I Am List the top 5 things that made you smile today. Reflect on why these occurrences brought you joy.
What I Need What and/or who could you not live without? Reflect on this feeling of need.
What I Desire If you had the ability to accomplish one thing tomorrow, what would it be and why?

How Can Self-Esteem Be Measured?

Instruct clients to set aside five minutes to reflect positively on what they have learned about him or herself. Prompt clients to focus their journal entries on meaningful experiences, while encouraging them to think critically about what they’ve learned about themselves.
