Gratitude Journal for November Lunch & Learn

By: Intelligent Change

October 22, 2019

It’s The Five-Minute Journal. Have you ever heard of it?

It was made popular a few years ago by Tim Ferris, an author and podcaster who specializes in maximizing the human potential. The journal is based on positive psychology.

I really like this style of journaling because it’s fast and simple… plus, it forces you to slow down for a couple minutes both in the morning and at night, to set intentions and reflect on your day.

Here’s the basic format…

Every morning list 3 things you’re grateful for, 3 things that “would make today great”, and 1 daily affirmation.

Every night write down 3 amazing things that happened during the day, and a sentence or two about what you could have done to make the day even better.

The published version of the original journal keeps all this to one page, so your answers can stay short and sweet.  (can use an journal you want, and this could be more efficient)

According to Intelligent Change, the company that publishes the official Five-Minute Journal, the format is set up to train your mind to focus on the positive things happening in your life… and shake you out of negative thought loops that keep you feeling stuck.
