The Five Minute Journal: An interesting way to get into the habit of maintaining a journal

Hi Everyone!

Today I am sharing a really interesting way to maintain a journal. I live really close to Chapters/Indigo Bookstore and as a book lover I can’t resist to go to the bookstore every few days. On one of the recent trips I found an awesome way to maintain a journal. It’s called “The Five Minute Journal” by Alex Ikonn and UJ Ramdas. It’s a perfect journal for people who always wanted to write a journal but could’t keep up with it. It’s a journal for people who don’t write journals!

It asks you to commit to write continuously for at least 5 days as it has weekly changes. These weekly challenges are to encourge you to get out of your comfort zone and take actions. For example, “An old friend I’ve been meaning to re-connect with is ________ . Call this person today.”It also has various tips and tricks to commit to write frequently and that too for under five minutes a day! Each page is divided into two sections, one where you write before you begin your day, and the other right before you go to bed. The Morning section has 3 parts, 1st is where you have to write “3 things you are grateful for…”, “What would make today great?” and Daily affirmations. In the Night routine section there are two parts. First is “write 3 Amazing things that happened today…” and “How could I have made today better?”


I feel that this is a great way to induce positive thinking as you begin and end each day with positive thoughts and learn to appreciate your life by being grateful.

I am really looking forward to using this awesome journal. What are your thoughts on maintaining a journal? Share with me in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by.

Montreal 2015

Hi Everyone!

Today I am sharing the pictures from my trip to Montreal. I started this new year 2015 with an impromptu trip to Montreal with a few friends. We decided to go there sometime after midnight, and left for Montreal at about 6 in the Morning. I loved the whole experience. I am sure a lot of us had “Travel more this year” as a new year resolution so this trip made me happy for one more reason. Montreal winter was worse than Toronto but despite that I fell in love with city and it’s European vibe.

Basilique Notre-Dame is definitely my favourite place out of all the places I saw.
