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

I love this journal! It has helped me dream bigger, love others and myself more, prioritize each day, make bigger commitments, and helps me see the joy in the big and small/ average and extraordinary/ and even the joy in sorrow and in pure happiness. So many people always ask me about the journal and I have gifted a few even- with always great feedback. Probably once a day someone close to me will say “I want a happiness journal like yours”
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the hard work y’all have put into this journal! One day at a time it’s changing lives- I know it’s changed mine.
Best part of my day!
There is no other way to start the day. 5 minute journal is my 1st objective daily!
It's just not for me
I think the journal is beautiful and I love the concept. However, after writing in it for 10 days, I already feel like it is redundant (from day to day) and in some ways, redundant with other "tools" in my life (like my To Do list). I find that I am writing things in the journal that are the same as goals and objectives that I have identified as I plan my work each day, week, and month. I think the journal is beautiful as I stated, but probably just not for me.
My order arrived in time and I am very pleased with the product!!!
