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

You can buy happiness - if you buy and stick to this journal.

I just started my second 5MJ and I guess that speaks for itself. It's one of my favourite products that I use daily and I would only recommend it to anyone that wants to change their outlook on life for the better.

Aiding Procrastination!

So I’ve been using my productivity planner and five minute journal for the last 3 weeks or so, as I had read prior to ordering that they were the way forward to combat procrastination!
To any of my friends and family who know me well really thought I never had a problem in that area.
Whilst following the guides how to use both of these books, I have synchronized the usage and have found that by doing so it has really put the thoughts in my mind and onto paper a reality. After only a few short weeks I can see how adding this to my daily routine, clears the cluttered mind and has already brought back an initial focus point for me.
Thank you very much to everyone at Intelligent change
