Journalling prompts to untangle the negativity that we have towards money

Journalling prompts

If you feel like you are alone trying to simplify and de-stress your relationship with money, I can assure you that you are not.

There are many women, like you and me, around the world right now exploring, discovering and choosing ways to improve how they interact with their money.  

They too are being challenged by their negative money mindset, facing their fears of scarcity and of being wealthy, wanting to experience abundance and be resourceful and playful with their money.

Journalling prompts can be a great way to untangle the negativity that we have towards money.

I have crafted these prompts using some of Rick Hanson’s neuropsychology secrets for overcoming our negative bias:

  Take in the good

  Focus on positive experiences with the greatest personal impact; and

  Be on your own side.

So, grab a journal, pen and write out each prompt and give yourself time to dwell and stay with these positive experiences and feelings.

Remember there are no wrong or right answers. Just compassionate self-awareness.
