The Five Minute Journal

Don’t have much time to spare? The Five Minute Journal will only take up—you guessed it—five minutes of your time each day. Inside you’ll find writing prompts and quotes designed to help you find gratitude and positivity in each day. 

Each page comes with an uplifting quote, followed by morning writing prompts where you’d be encouraged to write down three things you’re grateful for, three things can make the day great, and a daily affirmation. As bedtime approaches, be sure to reach for the journal once again to complete the rest of the page and list down three amazing things that have happened, as well as a quick self-reflection on how you could have made the day even better.
