Great start & finish to the day

The journal provides a quick way to start the day with gratitude and to reflect on what was great & what I can do to improve. I also found the email tips very helpful.

Best 0.35% of Your Day

The experience of feeling grateful seems to clear away much of the petty, day-to-day crankiness so many of us experience – the feelings of annoyance, impatience, resentment, anger and indignation.

Journaling Made Easy. And fun.

I love this journal. I didn't think I'd use it because I buy journals all the time and never stay committed to the process. My house could be wall papered with all the abandoned journals that fill the shelves, nooks and crannies. I like a lot about this journal: the cover - it's elegant and sturdy; the intro - tells me what I'm going to be doing, why and why it works; the time commitment - less than 5 minutes a day and it truly makes a life altering impact; and the positivity - I love coming up with new things every day that I'm grateful for. You don't realize how much you have until you undertake an exercise like this. Well done!

Amazing

It's been 2 weeks of daily journaling in The Five Minute Journal. I continue to see little changes in my mindset during the day which are bringing me more peace and serenity in my life. The "must do's" and "busyness" is leaving not only in my mind, also in my actions. I'm so grateful for the additional emails and ability to have such an easy, simple tool which is making such a profound change in my life. Thank you so much!

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.

  • Feeling less lonely, and isolated
  • Acting with more generosity and compassion
