The Five Minute Journal

Helps you focus on the good

How The Five Minute Journal Works

The Five Minute Journal is broken up into two sections: a morning routine section and a night routine section.

☀ Morning Routine: In the first few minutes after waking up, you have the precious opportunity to set the tone for the rest of the day. The morning section asks you 3 precise questions to start your day on a positive note and set intention to make your day great.

☾ Night Routine: The night section helps you evaluate your day and detail how you could improve for tomorrow. Most notably, this section asks you to reflect on the good throughout your day, ensuring you end your day on a positive note.


The Daily Layout

A structured format to boost your happiness in 5 minutes a day.

The Power of Keeping a Gratitude Journal

The Five Minute Journal is created with leading positive psychology research. The Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Davis launched a multi-year project expanding the science and practice of gratitude. Here is what they found:
  • Higher levels of positive emotion
  • More joy, optimism, and happiness
  • Feeling less lonely, and isolated
  • Acting with more generosity and compassion
  • Stronger immune systems

Happy

I only deducted one star because the journal I received had a few minor imperfections - there were a few loose threads coming out of the front of the journal that I had to snip off and the black silky bookmark was very untidy at the end, like it had been cut with blunt scissors. The process with the journal itself has been really helpful for me. I’ve been using it for just over two weeks daily which is a record for me and journaling. I’ve noticed results too, for example something I frequently set goals for was finding small ways to go above and beyond in my job since I work from home and it can be hard to stay productive. Almost two weeks in, my supervisor spoke to me privately to tell me how happy they were with my work. I definitely believe that daily reminder to push myself in my journal was key for me. The email tips are also very much appreciated.

Enjoy the Journal, But Wish The Product Was More Sturdy

I have really enjoyed using the five minute journal. I like: - The opening pages, research, and methodology behind the product us laid out up front. - The introduction is actually interesting and helpful! Especially the quora section about positivity. - The pages are thick, the design makes journaling fun, and the quotes are wonderful. - The covers texture is comfortable, so I enjoy sitting down to write in it. The only downside to this product is really two things: - The binding on my journal fell apart quickly — in my case, the cover detached partly from the bound-pages. - Price. I can understand why it's $22.95 given the research, quotes, etc., but I would expect the journal to hold up better for $23. Overall: I'm very happy with the product. I will continue to use my current journal and hope the binding improves in the future. I recommend it to anyone who is hoping to start their day in a more positive way and take specific steps towards a more proactive lifestyle.

BEST Mentor for ourselves

This is my 3rd 5-minute journal. I have the unique opportunity to review and see what mistakes I have committed every week or month or do a final review at the end of the year. This helped me a lot to jot down my mistakes and propelled me towards self-improvement. I am very grateful to the Journal :)

Life changing

I was gifted this book from a coach at my gym. Once I started this book I started to visualise my dreams and ambitions more clearly. I then went on to do a vision board. Now I am only a couple months off from leaving my job to be with my kids full time and travel Australia in a caravan. I use to think I wasn’t brave enough to take these risks and lead an adventurous life. Now I know I can do anything, it is a matter of believing in myself. This book was the first step to realising my dreams and I am so grateful someone thought I needed to add it to my life.

Congratulations, dear Jess! This is incredible! Manifesting your vision and creating the life of your dreams can seem like an overwhelming undertaking, however, with some confidence and positive action, it can certainly be built - the key is to start. Thank you so much for sharing your experience, and we look forward to hearing where your new path and adventures may take you ;)
