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

Gratitude is the best attitude!

I love this journal! Starting and ending my day with gratitude has been a wonderful habit to have developed, and it has improved my overall sense of purpose and outlook on life. It truly takes no more than 5 minutes to complete the morning and evening portions of the daily journal. Although there is not a lot of space in which to write each day's entries, the limited writing area makes it very easy to keep my daily commitment to journaling because the task never seems daunting. No matter how rushed or tired I may feel, there is no reason in the world I can't take a few minutes each day to focus on my blessings and how much I have to be grateful for. And the more I focus on my blessings, the more numerous they seem to become. Thank you, Intelligent Change! I am grateful for you!

Binding

I have ordered several times from your company for I love the books. This batch I noticed the binding is not tight at all and the book pages separate from the hard cover. Unfortunately I needed them and have been using but trulls was a disappointment.
