Good Morning and welcome back to Motivation Monday!
Today I thought I’d talk about The Five-Minute Journal, “the simplest, most effective thing you can do everyday to be happier.” I’ve mentioned it before, and you may have even seen the picture above in a post from a few months ago. I originally heard about this journal while watching an incredible video on relationships by Mimi and Alex Ikonn (you can watch it here). They talk about how they start their morning and end their night by writing down what they are grateful for, a daily affirmation, quotes, and what will and did make their day great. After, they share aloud with each other. And it only takes five minutes or less, hence the five-minute journal! 
I found my copy at the store Paper Source – journal is linked here. This kind of thing isn’t for everyone and it isn’t for every couple (I write in mine solo), but for those who are into self-motivation, I highly recommend! I find that starting my day by being grateful, aware and confident really makes a difference. And ending it by remembering what made the day great and what I could have done to make it better, gets me in a positive mindset for the coming morning. I like to keep my journal on my bedside table along with a pen. This way it jogs my memory! + once you get in the habit, it will become part of your daily routine. A much better way to start your day than getting sucked into your phone right away.   
I hope everyone has a wonderful start to the week and lots of coffee :). Please don’t forget about tonight’s Subscriber Social with Beautycounter! You can join the event by going here.
