8 Weekly Journal Ideas For Winter


We’re at the very start of the coldest and final months of the year, which means finding something cosy and indoors to do is a great idea! And since we are approaching the end of the year, what better activity to take part in than journaling and putting into words how we feel, reminisce old times and think about what we are going to do to make next year even better. So, in this article, I’ve compiled a series of fun and motivational weekly journal ideas for you to write about during winter.

Weekly journal ideas for Winter days:

1. Describe your perfect winter day

If you could spend one day in winter in any way, what would you do? Would you choose to spend it in another country? Maybe trying a winter sport you have never tried before? The idea behind this weekly journal prompt is to let your imagination fly! Go ahead and describe from the second you open your eyes to the moment you go to sleep, your perfect winter day and be as creative and extraordinary as you want!

2. Describe your favourite childhood winter memory

Personally and as a child, Christmas holidays were my absolute favourite! So from time to time, writing about the activities we enjoyed as a family and just trying to remember every single detail gets me in an incredibly good mood. This is why as a soothing and relaxing weekly journal idea I suggest you put your memory to the test! What was your favourite family activity? What traditions and festivities did you partake in? Do you remember waking up to a White Christmas?

3. Recall your dreams

One of the best ideas to journal about is jotting down your dreams! Many people keep a dream journal on their nightstand so that whenever they have a crazy dream they can write it down the minute they wake up. Writing down what you dream about is fascinating especially if you like analyzing your dreams and finding meanings to them. It is also a quick and easy journal prompt as you don’t have to put much thought into it other than noting what you have dreamt!

4. Write a book review

Have you recently read a book that has caused an impact on you? One of the best weekly journal ideas that I use is writing book reviews. And, if you’re like me and love reading you can write a summary of your favourite book or the book you’ve just read as a journal entry. I love going back to these entries, especially when I re-read books, to compare my initial thoughts on a story and character to my thoughts now!

5. Create a ‘wish list’ of movies, books and activities to do this season

Another engaging journal idea to write about is to create a list of movies, books and activities to do during winter. Kind of like a bucket list but for winter! Are there any movies you’ve wanted to watch this year that you haven’t? Well, the coldest months of the year are perfect to finally watch them as the weather makes the perfect excuse to stay indoors. There are also plenty of activities you can only do during winter like going ice skating, visiting the Christmas markets, etc. So create your ‘wish list’, share it with your friends and start ticking it off!

Motivational Writing prompts:

6. Write a letter to your future self

What better season than winter to reflect on yourself and think about what you want to improve in the coming year. For that reason, as a great weekly journal idea, I recommend reflecting and writing about your present in the form of a letter to your future self! This is a great way to talk about your state of mind at the moment, any mistakes you’ve made that you want to avoid and any goals you want to achieve in the future.

7. Jot down one thing you can do to be more sustainable

Our goals for the new year should include some to take care of our environment and leave a nicer and cleaner planet for the future generations. For this reason, I encourage you to write a motivational writing prompt on 1 thing you can change before the year ends to be more sustainable. It doesn’t have to be a big change, but a big enough one to help you start a more sustainable lifestyle. What about taking a reusable water bottle to the gym from now on? Or maybe even pack your snack for work in a reusable bag instead of disposable tin foil? The ideas are endless!

8. Write down 3 goals you’ve achieved this year

Finally, one of my favourite weekly journal ideas to write about and that will make you appreciate how far you’ve come and how hard you’ve worked is to simply note 3 goals you’ve achieved this year. It can be anything from fitness goals to self-care goals to work related goals. Make it a habit to regularly reflect on everything you’ve achieved as this will help you push through any hard and difficult times that come your way.
