Five Minute Journal

blog post

For months I had been debating about getting one of those Five Minute Journals (the actual book version) and then I discovered this app which is the journal in an app form which gives you two notifications a day to fill in what you feel. Mine are set at 7 am for the first notification and I think the other is around 9pm so half an hour after I’ve woken up and then right before I’ve starting to wind down on a night. I feel that with this it is a lot easier to keep track of and actually write in because of actually being informed about it.

So when you open it daily, it will show you an inpirational quote for the day which you can share on any of your social media accounts or occasionally I’ll screenshot them so I can save them and look back at them. I really feel that this gets me in a positive mindset for the day and ready to do whatever I’ve got to do that day.

After seeing the inspirational quote of the day you’re greated with a screen like the one above. This is where you write the things you’re grateful for and what you’re going to do that day to have a good day. I think this is really a postive thing to do to start the day and to be honest, end the day with by speaking about the things that have happened that day. Personally, I think that self reflection is one of the best ways to stay positive and something which I strive for in my life is to be as positive as I possibly can be regardless of what the situtation is. On a whole I really think this app is a wonderful way of reminding yourself of what an amazing life you actually have and reminds you to express gratitude whether it is actually only being seen by yourself. I think being grateful for the things you have in life is such a great way of staying humble in any situtation you are in.
