5 Minute Gratitude Journal

5 Minute Gratitude Journal

Once upon a time, I was a prolific journaler. Writing has helped me process so much… and then things got bad enough that I stopped writing because of I wrote, I would have to face reality. This year though, I begin again, face reality head on, and reclaim some of my favorite things to do; intentionally feeding parts of myself that have been starved.


To get my feet wet, and in trying to be smart about how I was starting over without overwhelming myself on this habit of journaling, I researched a number of journal ideas. As one would when they don’t want to be overwhelmed.  This one stood out to me.


It doesn’t take long, so I can’t use time as a busy mom for an excuse to not keep this commitment to myself. It focuses on gratitude, thinking about positive things you can do, affirming truth to yourself, and then reviewing your day in a concise manner. This points you toward the positives and trains your brain to look for them as well as promotes ownership of your day and awareness in contrast to being a victim to what happens to your time.


Overall, in the short time I have used this Gratitude Self Care Journal, I would say my awareness is up, the feeling of fulfillment at the end of the day is higher, and the “glimmers” don’t pass me by as easily as they used to without my notice.


Gratitude journal is something I have journaled before and it feels like coming home. I had never thought to write things down that would make my day great, but I love the intention! I am not the ideal candidate to be writing affirmations and I appreciate that I am being stretched in this way. I really like that you get to write you top highlights from your day so you end on a positive note. I suspect the section for what you learned that day will be the most growth inspiring. It has been little things some days or recognition of old habits/coping mechanisms/etc on others. I love that you have this question to think about and answer which will hopefully lead to greater joy or change in good directions!


At first, when I received my 5 Minute Gratitude Journal I was very underwhelmed. Short lines, one side of a page per day; I didn’t think it would be enough. I actually only decided to give it a chance because I had also purchased “3-minute” gratitude journals for my kids and we were doing our journal time together. Man, oh man, am I glad I didn’t ditch the idea!


I absolutely love this Gratitude Journal Notebook and cannot wait to see the growth that comes from using it!
