Have you heard of The Five-Minute Journal? Created by Alex Ikonn and Uj Ramdas, this book claims to be “the simplest, most effective thing you can do every day to be happier.”
The book guides you through a brief morning and evening writing practice built on proven principles of positive psychology. In only minutes a day you can establish a routine which which gives the opportunity to reflect on your day, focus on gratitude, and live with more purpose, intention and clarity.
I received my copy in the mail yesterday and already notice that I am looking for positive things to report, as opposed to focusing on daily problems and challenges. I’m so excited to incorporate this into my daily routine and check out what happens.
Do you have a daily practice that helps you stay grounded and positive? I would love to hear about it!
