Great Journal

I've been using mine for a few months now. I absolutely love it. I've even purchased more than 8 to give to other people who have equally enjoyed. This journaling experience has truly helped me increase my level of gratitude.

Changed my life!!

I was in a really dark place and my sister-in-law reccommended this journal to me. Ive written in it every single morning and night since I got it and it’s literally CHANGED MY LIFE! It’s changed my mindset from negative to positive, from I can’t to I can, from pessimistic to optimistic. I’ve recommended it to so many of my friends and my fiancé now has one too! I think that everyone should have this journal.

Gratitude habit

I've kept a 5-minute journal for over 5 years, so I have about 4 of these journals already filled. Gratitude is a habit, and this journal makes it approachable, accessible, and easy to commit to in order to live a happier life. I like to buy one every year on my birthday to gift to a friend. I used to be able to buy them from Amazon with free shipping, but I guess that has changed; I now have to buy through their own platform and they charge shipping. The journal is great, not so excited about the change in shipping.

Great to keep away from Screens.

I used the app but this is great to avoid using the phone straight after waking up and before falling asleep it’s helping my routines to stay away from screens and other distractions on the phone.

Perfect! A little less screen time never hurt anyone :)

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 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
