Journaling is one of the best ways to help kids (especially teens), boost their self esteem, confidence, it teaches them self reflection, provides stability and of course it adds up to their creativity.
Now more than ever important is to analyze emotions and let the feelings out in a conscious way. This is not the easiest task for teens, who already have a lot of things going in their mind.

Journal prompts benefits for teens
Writing is my real-life treasure. Every morning I start with writing. The notebook is always on my bedroom table. I write down whatever comes to my mind. If I don’t know what to write, I start just from moving my hand. Sooner or later the thoughts come by. Writing helps me start the day without any concerns, fears or thoughts about yesterday. It clears my mind. That’s why it’s so important to implement the routine in your teen’s life. It develops their emotional intelligence and encourages them go deeper into their feelings. I hope these 50 mindful journal prompts for teens will help!
