Keeping a 5 minute journal

It’s easy sometimes to get caught up in negativity. Watch TV, open a browser or app and it’s almost like hanging out in a smokey bar — it sticks to you and if you’re in it long enough you’ll feel awful later, even after you’ve moved onto something else and the smoke is gone.

Day in, day out, in the smokey bar… so just wanted to share what I’m doing to try to open the window, in case anyone else also feels it sometimes — a 5 minute journal.

Just spending a few minutes focusing on things and people to be thankful for. Things to be proud of. Amazing stuff that’s almost like magic / surreal that you can see when you stop and look around.

Here’s a template…
