Conscious Christmas Gift Guide #1

The Five Minute Journal Product Photography

The Lens & Muse conscious Christmas gift guide is here!

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for that special someone in your life that loves the the art of journaling and practicing gratitude then look no further than The Five Minute Journal. 

I use this journal….every. single. day. 

True to its description it literally takes 5 minutes of a morning and evening and forms part of my morning ritual. I’ll have a coffee in bed and fill a page out and I find it sets my day up beautifully.

It has 3 sections for the morning: 

• I am grateful for…

• What would make today great? 

• Daily affirmation. I am…..

And 2 section for the evening:

• 3 amazing things that happened today…

• How could I have made today even better?


It’s such a beautiful practice to get into a habit of and one habit that is non-negotiable.  My journal goes everywhere I do and it truly reminds me – even on the not so great days – that there is so much to be grateful for.  It also reminds me that I am the architect of my day, and how I choose to embark on my day is up to me.

How many times have you woken up on the wrong side of bed and thought “it’s going to be a bad day” and inevitably it is.  The same is true of the opposite, and this is why I believe this journal helps to set my day up so beautifully.  By simply making the decision to look at what I’m grateful for, to think about what would make my day great, and affirm something positive, I’m already giving myself the optimal chance to have a wonderful day.  Of course, there are going to be things that happen outside of our control, and that’s okay, however this journal is about focusing on what you can do to give yourself the best opportunity to have a wonderful day.  It’s up to us to choose.

You can grab a copy of this book from Intelligent Change here, or if you’re in Newcastle, Australia, you grab your own copy from the ladies at Honest Paper.

Leave a comment below to let me know what you’re grateful for today.
