Mental Health Check-In Journaling Cards

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and journaling for me has always been an approach for me to understand my feelings and check in with myself.

Here are more resources:, please check out the National Alliance on Mental Illness’s support page, Mental Health America has some good resources as well, and I recently found Mental Health Is Health, which is not only a beautifully designed website, but actually prompts you to talk about how you feel, and how you can work around those feelings.

I use these steps to check in with myself, and then journal about how I’m feeling. It’s not much, but it’s a short, easy ritual to practice your emotional and mental health awareness.

First I included a mini meditation that I do, just a 5 second breathe in, and a a 5 second breathe out. Then of course, a check in on your feelings, I keep it simple, rank it between 1-5, Great, Good, Meh, Bad, Terrible. And of course, the same with my body and physical well-being. I usually write in my journal while doing these steps.

As before, the cards are 3.5″ x 2.5″; there is an all sans serif version, and then one that’s got a little cursive flair. There are crop marks so you know where to cut.
