Helps you focus on the good

A daily journal to recognize the joy in everyday life

• Begin the day right: When you start the day on the right note, things automatically start to fall in place. Every day. 

• Cultivate Gratitude: Gratitude is the opposite of depression and anxiety. It's the conscious experience of appreciation of the gifts in our lives and the results are tangible.

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

My 7yr old daughter and I both love the Five minute journal

This is an amazing idea and I love waking up everyday starting with a positive way and then ending my day on reflecting on the good things! My 7year old daughter loved the idea too and she wanted to start it herself so we shared my journal and it's so cute to watch her reflect on her days and what she thinks will make her days great and what where the amazing things to happen to her! Now I have to order one for me and my daughter!!! Love it

I'm STILL using it!

I'm a leadership coach but often have trouble sticking with my own personal growth process/tools. I'm using the 5 Minute Journal every day, it's making the difference, and I'm able to sustain the change. Brilliant!

Excellent Customer Service

I recently ordered two of The Minute Journal books and paid for overnight shipping to get them on time. I received an email a few days later that the package was received but nothing ever came to my door. I emailed the company and was immediately taken care of by Tricia who asked for my order number and resent the two Journals. Great response time and customer service. Love the Journal so far.

Oh Joyful Rain!

Yesterday, I missed my bus home from work on a rainy London evening. I missed it by 3 seconds so I was left standing in the rain without my umbrella and I thought to myself "I am so thankful for the opportunity to live in this city". What?! How did that happen? Stranded in the rain and joyful - how does that equate? The Five minute journal is to blame! I love it so much, I featured it in my vlog, Be More Awesome in Five Minutes or Less:

I have recently started using the 5MJ and it has created a major difference in my daily routine.

I have always been an advocate for journaling, but the 5MJ's layout works well with my melancholy personality.

Starting the day with positivity allows me to conquer the day and build my capacity to tackle and hit any curve balls out of the park that are thrown at me. I have been practicing the "hammer approach" for a week and my belief increases each day that I put pen to paper.

Ending the day with positivity gives me the opportunity to declutter my mind and reminds me to make the main things the main things.

The question, 'How could I have made today better?' reminds me that growth is an ongoing process and that tomorrow is a new opportunity to become a better version of myself.

Most importantly, my wife is also using the 5MJ and we have implemented weekly meetings that are based on our journal entries. As a result, our relationship and commmunication has been elevated to another level.

You and the rest of the Intelligent Change team are difference makers!

Thank you creating a great journal.
