How 5 Minutes A Day Can Change Your Life

Over the past few months I have had the opportunity to interview some amazing people for the podcast. We always cover what the morning or start of the day routine consists of. It is staggering to see how many of them follow a similar recipe. All with a different step by step formula, yet it’s primarily the same ingredients.

  • Meditation
  • Gratitude – Acknowledgment
  • Study
  • Task Management
  • Physical Activity
  • Food

I know what you are thinking.

There is no way you can get all that into 5 minutes. You are correct, you cannot achieve these activities with any level of success in a speed dating format. However – There is a tool I have found that can be a great first step into building a routine that will help you mentally, physically and emotionally find balance to perform a your all time best.

Recently I was turned on to the 5 Minute Journal. It was spawned by some great thinkers who were students of the Tim Ferris book The Four Hour Work Week. 

The 5 Minute Journal 
5 minute Journal 1
The format is broken into a two section journal that focuses on seven focus points.
AM – Morning
  • Inspiring Quotes
  • What Would Make Today Great
  • Weekly Challenges
  • Gratefulness
  • Affirmations
PM – Evening
  • List Three Amazing Things That Happened Today
  • How Could You Have Made Today Better

This format is a great outline to put the day ay both the start and finish into perspective. There is a secret to this all though. You have to do it – I mean you really actually can’t just read this and not take action. Things like this only work when you do. So if you are happy with the results, focus and happiness you experience today – don’t change anything. But if you are looking for an edge up on things, I recommend this as a great starting point.
