For any of you who have the Starbucks app, you may be able to download this app! I was getting rid of the little red bubbles that appear when you have a notification, and in my Starbucks “messages”, I had a free download of this app!
It’s called Five Minute Journal, and it’s purpose is it take time in the morning and night to assess your thoughts for the day. It’s available to download for free though Starbucks (if you have the app) and it’s available on the App Store.
In the morning you write:
– Three things you are grateful for
– Three things you will do to make the day great
– One daily affirmation (aka: I am strong, beautiful, smart, etc)
There is also a cute daily quote! The first one I got was:
“Everyone has the power for greatness, not for fame, but greatness, because greatness is determined by service” – MLK
At night, you write:
– Three amazing things that happened today
– How you could have made the day better
The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is grab my phone, check my notifications, all social media and my e-mails. This app is just another thing I can add to the list of things I check, and it’s really a great way to gather my thoughts for the day, and kind of put life into perspective. If not for this, I probably wouldn’t think about what I’m grateful for unless I was instructed too. In doing this every morning, I hope to connect a little more with myself on a spiritual level and center myself as a whole.
