Great little book

I have been using this for a few months now and it is short enough that I actually write in it every day and actually look forward to it. It -for me-is just enough to allow me to acknowledge the day without feeling like it is taking so much time out of my day. I imagine I will order another when this book is filled :)

Thank you for sharing, dear Kelly. May you have a rewarding continued journey with it.

Five Minute Journal Review

I just love the whole concept of the Five Minute Journal. It saved me up so much time and nerves. It is simple to use but effective it gets you into a state of gratitude and being present in the moment. Recommended for anyone who is busy and needs that moment for themselves.


Intelligent Change

Thank you for your positive feedback, dear Hana. We're so grateful for your love and support. Have a wonderful journey ahead with it.
