Journaling is a powerful tool for self-discovery, reflection, and creative expression, and inspiration for writing can come from many different places, including holidays.


To start the month, International Women’s Day falls on March 8th.


A global day celebrating the achievements of women, it’s the perfect catalyst for journal prompts for March.


  • Reflect on the influential women in your life. How have they shaped your beliefs, values, and aspirations?
  • What does gender equality mean to you, and why is it important?
  • What challenges have you overcome as a woman, and how have they shaped you into the person you are today?


Mid-month we come across Pi Day, celebrated on March 14th for its mathematical significance – 3.14.


Take this day as an opportunity to ponder on the concept of infinity and precision.


  • Reflect on the significance of π in mathematics and beyond. What does π represent, and why is it important?
  • Explore the intersection of math and creativity. How can mathematical concepts like π inspire artistic expression, innovation, and problem-solving in other areas of life?
  • Pi Day is often celebrated with the enjoyment of pie (the dessert). What’s your favorite type of pie? Why?

Moving into the latter part of March, St. Patrick’s Day on the 17th encourages reflection on luck, heritage, and celebration.


  • Explore the theme of luck and fortune. What does luck mean to you, and do you believe in superstitions?
  • Write about Irish culture and traditions. Have you ever celebrated St. Patrick’s Day, and if so, what was your experience like?
  • Reflect on the color green as a symbol of growth, renewal, and nature. How can you incorporate more “green” habits into your life?





The Spring Equinox, also known as the Vernal Equinox, marks the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.


It is the beginning of longer days and shorter nights and typically lands around March 20th or 21st depending on the year.


  • Embracing the theme of renewal and new beginnings, how do you feel as winter transitions to spring?
  • Write about the signs of spring you observe in nature, such as budding flowers, chirping birds, or longer daylight hours. What symbols of renewal resonate with you the most?
  • Write about what no longer serves you and how you can let go of negative thoughts, habits, or relationships. What steps can you take to cultivate more peace and clarity in your life?
  • Write a letter to your future self to be opened on the next Spring Equinox. What goals or aspirations do you hope to achieve by then and what would you tell your future self?



As we near the end of the month, take time to appreciate World Poetry Day on the 21st.


  • Dive into the world of poetry. Write a poem inspired by the sights, sounds, and sensations of spring.
  • Reflect on a favorite poem or poet. Who is it or what is the poem? What emotions does their work evoke in you?
  • Explore the power of language to convey profound emotions and messages. How can poetry be a tool for healing, self-discovery, or social change?
  • Challenge yourself to write a poem using only punctuation marks and spacing. How can the absence of words convey meaning, emotion, and rhythm in your poetic composition?


Not every year, but some years, Easter falls at the end of March. For example, in 2024 Easter is on March 31st.


There is a reason behind Easter’s yearly date change. Other than the fact that it is always on a Sunday, it has to do with when the first full moon after the Spring Equinox occurs.


So some years Easter is in March, others it’s in April. But it felt like a good holiday to include on this list of journal prompts for March.


Easter reminds us of the power of love, forgiveness, and redemption, inspiring us to cultivate compassion and resilience.


  • Write about moments of resilience and strength you’ve demonstrated in the face of challenges. How have these experiences shaped your perspective on life?
  • Explore the symbolism of Easter eggs in various cultures and traditions. What do Easter eggs represent to you personally?
  • Consider a time when you experienced a significant change or transformation in your life. How did this change impact you, and what did you learn from it?
  • Write about your intentions for personal growth and transformation during the Easter season. How can you cultivate a mindset of renewal and possibility?


Allow these March journal prompts to spark inspiration and deepen your connection to yourself and the world around you.


Embrace the season of renewal, and let your writing journey this March be fulfilling and enriching. Happy March, and happy journaling!
