1. Uncover their hidden strengths. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” Write a narrative about a time when you did something you thought you could not do.
2. Let them take the reins. Attach an image (photo, magazine, etc.) to a notebook page and write about it.
3. Have them daydream about the not-so-distant future. Imagine a future in which we each have a personalized robot servant. What would yours be like? Describe what it would do and the features it would have.
4. Allow their creativity and core values to intersect. Create a brand new holiday with its own traditions, rituals, foods, and activities.
5. Let them map out their long term goals and life plans. Make your bucket list for the next five years, the next ten years, and for life.
6. Put their family life at the front of their minds. Think about hospitality in your family. What’s it like to have guests in your house? Do you prefer to have friends to your house or to go to a friend’s house?
7. Have them think about traits that are important to possess in today’s world. Write about someone who has no enemies. Is it even possible?
8. In a world of a “fake news”—where do they stand? Can honesty honestly be bad? Write about someone, fact or fiction, who gets in trouble for being too truthful.
9. Reinforce the importance books have in their lives. Remember a favorite book from your childhood. Write a scene that includes you and an old copy of that book you find somewhere.
10. Explore the weight that words hold between two people. William Shakespeare wrote that: “Conversation should be pleasant without scurrility, witty without affectation, free without indecency, learned without conceitedness, novel without falsehood.”

1. Love and relationships. Having strong, supportive relationships can help improve overall well-being, protect against mental health concerns like depression, and boost resilience, which refers to your ability to weather life’s many challenges.
2. Work and career. If you work full-time, you spend the majority of your waking hours on the job. That makes your career a pretty significant part of your life.
3. Self-reflection. Exploring your values, opinions, and personality traits in writing can teach you more about who you are as a person. This in-depth reflection can strengthen not just the relationship you have with yourself, but also the connections you build with others.
4. Uncomfortable emotions. Journaling can help you express and begin to navigate difficult and painful emotions. That’s part of what makes it such a valuable exercise.
5. Living your best life. Writing about the little things that add meaning to daily life makes it easier to notice just how much they boost your mood and overall well-being.
6. Personal growth and life goals. Getting in touch with who you are now doesn’t just help you recognize key strengths and values. It can also help unlock a deeper understanding of who you want to become and what you want from life.

1. Journaling is the practice of recording on paper a collection of thoughts, understandings, and explanations about ideas or concepts, usually in a bound notebook. Teachers ask students to keep journals, with the understanding that students will share their journal with the teacher. Teachers can use journaling as a kind of window into how students are thinking about what they are learning. Student journals can be an important source of information about learning difficulties, misconceptions, strengths and weaknesses, and metacognition. The act of transferring thoughts, ideas, and feelings into written words also encourages students to examine their own thought processes. It is a private record of students' thoughts that provides a safe way of communicating with the teacher, giving teachers insight into those thoughts.
