Feeling negative lately with your work and wondering how to get out of that non-constructive situation? The Five Minute Journal will help you feel happier in life and in your business.
Experiencing gratitude on a daily basis improves the quality of our life. It also helps us feel happier and more centered, which provides a positive impact on how we handle our business and interactions with others.
Watch the video below to see how I set the tone each morning to go through the rest of the day with a positive mindset.
Write down your gratitude notes
Thinking about three things you are grateful for when you go to bed is a good start. However, there is a risk that you fall asleep during the gratitude practice.
Use a pen and paper to write down your thoughts: it will help you feel more present with the exercise while your mind focus on the good things that happened during your day.
Don’t use your mobile phone to write your gratitude notes at nighttime as it could disturb your sleep to look at a screen before going to bed.
The Five-Minute Journal
The journal is beautifully designed: it’s a real pleasure to fill each page every day. Visit the Five Minute Journal website to flip though the journal and see how a page looks like.
Another reason that motivates people to open the journal regularly is that there is an inspirational quote to discover each day or a challenge to do.
It might cost a little bit more to buy this journal instead of using a simple notebook but it is worse investing in it to build a positive daily habit.

Positive impact on your business
Adding a gratitude practice in the morning, in addition to feeling grateful at the end of the day, makes a big difference compared to only feeling grateful in the evening, as it helps you start the day with a positive intention.
An agenda helps you plan your activities while the five-minute journal helps you set a positive mindset for the day.
If you add this positive habit to your daily routine, you should see a difference after several weeks as you start to be more in control of how you feel during the day. This will help you set a positive and constructive mindset on your business.
What about you? Do you have other methods to practice gratitude?
