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.

I was in a really negative and moopy mood all the time and wanted to get out of my funk. Had this recommended to me. I'm so bad at even keeping my calendar up to date and thought it was questionable that I could keep up to date with this... However I made time in my life for it and at the start had to force myself to do it but after the first week it honestly already felt part of my routine and it actually really helped to give myself some clarity before going to sleep which ended up helping me getting a fuller nights sleep. I honestly started finding myself taking a more positive look on life from about day 3. Obviously this is very quick and I know that for some it may take a couple weeks to feel a change but this book has helped me so much and can't thank the person enough that recommended it. If you're honestly in a slump and feel yourself getting stuck I really could not recommend giving this a try anymore. 10/10!!
Way to go, Michelle! It is such an accomplishment to work your way out of a slump and feel empowered once again. Congratulations for incorporating gratitude practise as part of your daily routine. Sticking to it isn't always easy, but it certainly is worth it. Thank you for sharing your review and your story.
Thinking about what you're grateful for every day is such a perspective shift. The Five Minute Journal has taken my positivity and my relationships to the next level.
We couldn't agree more, Sara! Gratitude is a powerful thing. Wishing you the best as you continue on your journey, and thank you for the feedback :)
5 Minute Journal is such a great tool...I've started handing them out to others that show interest in attracting the type of life they want to live!
Keep up the great work.
So grateful for your support and enthusiasm, and happy to hear such positive feedback! Wishing you and your friends continued happiness and success in all the life-work you are doing with the Five Minute Journal.
I am getting better, setting my alarm earlier in the morning, reading the pointers in the emails. I am appreciating the changes and the potential.
So excited about the potential still in store for you, Cindy :) Thrilled to hear your experience so far and wishing you happiness and success on your journey.
