2nd journal!

I lived my first one. I started in January 2019 and am almost finished it. I write in the journal with my 5 yr old (he writes the date and tells me 1 thing he is grateful for). 2019 has been a challenging year for me, but I'm absolutely sure that The Five Minute Journal has shifted my mindset to finding grace and lessons in everything. Thanks to UJ, Alex and Mimi for the one product that I can truly say, has changed my life.

Small steps, big rewards!

Wonderful product! After a mere two weeks of using The Five Minute Journal, I can see its impact on my work and my artistic endeavors. My only wish is that there were more note pages at the end of the journal. I often keep track of inspiring quotes/people, things that bring a smile to my life, random musings, etc., and I can see just after two weeks that I will not have enough note pages to last the six months.

Unfortunate

I did not receive the item. I moved recently and my new address is very similar to my old address because I only moved to the next building on my block. PayPal still had my old address in the system and when I checked out I did not confirm my new address. The item was delivered however who ever moved in my last address is now the happy owner of your product. I wish I could have been helpful.

Engaging With T5-MJ

I love the texture of the cover and the minimal design. The pages are the right thickness and have a wonderful feel to them. I have finished my second T5-MJ and am starting my third. I am happily addicted. I appreciated the page that alerted me to order my new journal. And once I ordered it - it came promptly. Thanks. Many of the quotes bother me. So I cure my bothered feeling by writing across the guilty quotes with words like: ******, shallow or uninspiring. When I like a quote, I give it check marks. One, two or three depending on the degree of awesomeness of the quote. The little sun on the top corner. It gets a check mark if I make my bed. I clarify at the beginning, that for me, a good day is great. So on each day - I write what would make my day good - and that is great. And the final amazing things are good things - because to experience good things - is amazing. I used to struggle with identifying things I could have done better. I don't like to judge myself. I used to cross it out. In the introductory pages, there is a quote from Thomas Edison about making requests to your subconscious. So now I plan to strike out the final line about making the day better and replace it with: What I am requesting from my subconscious. Tonight is my first night. I have two requests.

The Five Minute Journal

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.
