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

Wonderful

I use bit the journal and the app for my journaling needs and they are both wonderful. By using the five minute journal daily in both print and digital form I have truly started to feel happier. I have taken stock of the things in my life and I have found value in them. This is definitely worth a purchase.

A life-changing habit.

I've been struggling over the last few years with feeling on-top of crazy life events. I can't believe how just 5 minutes each day (with my 5-Minute Journal) has such a big impact. I'm just about to start my second Journal, and this is a life-changing habit

Amazing...life changing

I ordered first for myself, I've been bitter and negative basically the last year daily. I decided to change so I ordered this diary. I can't believe how I changed within just a month!! I started to feel happier, positive and more confident - I stopped complaining! My partner was twice as sour as me and he asked for one too. He is doing it just for two weeks but I already see him less angry and less focused on negative thoughts! AMAZING guys, thank you for a affordable and effective therapy.
