Five minutes can make a difference.
Today marks my 27th consecutive day writing in the Five Minute Journal.
Since starting the journal, it’s been amazing to see the transformation in my daily mood and mentality.
The journal requires you to take 5 minutes each day to reflect; it’s broken into two sections: morning and night.
Each morning, you’re asked to write down 3 things you’re grateful for, 3 things that would make the day great, and declare a daily affirmation.
At night, you’re asked to reflect on 3 amazing things that happened that day, and one thing you would’ve done differently to make the day better.
Looking back on my past entries, I wanted to share some of the things I’ve written.
I’m grateful for:
- My yoga practice at Power Yoga Buffalo
- A sister who I can proudly call my best friend
- A job that challenges me
- Coworkers who support me
- New relationships I’ve built with people who inspire and push me to overcome my fears
There is no doubt that the act of journaling on a daily basis has made me more reflective.
And there’s no doubt that using the Five Minute Journal, which focuses on the positive aspects of your day, has made me feel happier, more optimistic and present in my life.
If you’re looking for a change, or to establish a new routine, I encourage you to buy a copy of the journal or just start this practice at home.
Just the practice of taking five minutes each day to reflect can make an enormous difference in your life.
