I give these as gifts all the time

They got me started journaling, which has been an incredibly valuable habit to me. I love trying to instill the habit in friends and family!

And I did buy from you again

Good so far. I have a question: Are the Daily Affirmations supposed to be the same every day in order to prime your brain?

Hi Elizabeth! They can be the same everyday especially if this is something you are trying to grow within yourself, or you are welcome to change this up daily. It's completely up to you. I recommend to watch the founder's How To video on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kb97vYqEIOo, which you may find helpful.

next time I buy I will be more careful

The item is great. It is helpful in organizing a day. I didn't want the same quotes again and expected a different edition.

For a couple years, I'd been using the iOS 5MJ application -- while it was pleasant and useful, I didn't gain any of the mindful effects that were advertised. I think it was because my phone is generally a source of stress and distraction...and whenever my phone overwhelmed me to the point of ignoring it, my 5MJ would subsequently go fallow. Last month, I decided to switch to the physical journal, and it's been a game-changer. Somehow lately, I've been more mindful and present with my family, and the timing of that change coincides with receiving my journal. I haven't missed a day yet, and I look forward to my morning/evening time to contemplate. The act of putting pen on paper and the boundaries imposed by the physical page are a perfect mix for me at this time

Amazing to hear this, Matthew! Thank you so much for sharing. We are all unique, and you are indeed correct that for many, putting the pen to paper and physically connecting to your gratitude practise in that classic way can certainly change your experience. Please continue to enjoy. :)

best journal ever!

I love this journal. It's straightforward and to the point, and gets my day started with gratitude and focus. At night, it helps me reflect on the blessings of the day, both small and large.

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 Power of Keeping a Gratitude Journal

  • Higher levels of positive emotion
  • More joy, optimism, and happiness
  • Feeling less lonely, and isolated
  • Acting with more generosity and compassion
  • Stronger immune systems
