The first three questions, denoted by a sun symbol, are to be answered in the morning. The last two, shaded in grey and accompanied by a moon symbol, are to be answered retrospectively at the end of the day. I hadn't previously seen anything like this and was intrigued.
Aiming for practicality, I've simplified the 5-Minute Journal into a format that works for me:
I've cut out what I see as redundant questions (I don't see the need to struggle to prioritize 3 things you are grateful for and 3 great things that happened today; reviewing these things in your head and selecting the single most significant one is more efficient, while still promoting reflective thinking). In its shortened form, it becomes the 2-Minute Journal, and can be completed at any one time during the course of the day. It's brief enough to be squeezed into unused space at the bottom of each day in a planner.
I think mindfulness and reflection are important components to maintaining health and happiness, and I'll try to use this 2-Minute Journal as a reminder to do these things daily.
Do you do reflective writing or journaling -- or have you tried the 5-Minute Journal?
