Creativity Tool Tuesday: The Five Minute Journal

The last thing I felt like I needed in my life was another journal.  I'm normally the biggest advocate of journaling and Julia Cameron's Morning Pages from The Artist's Way have changed my life.  I write everyday, and because I write every day I was really skeptical that I needed another journal.

That aside when a trusted friend like Holli Ilderton says, "Alisha, have you seen this journal?  It literally takes 5 minutes or less and I think it would be a great tool for your client's" if you're smart you pay attention.  

Turns out Holli is right as ussual,and this little book takes less than 5 minutes total to reflect in the morning and before bed at night.  It helps me focus on the positive, maintain an attitude of gratitude and look for ways to live my purpose and passion through out the day.  I loved it so much I actually ran a contest and gave a few away through my Facebook and instagram account.  Like the book's daily exercises, I'm going to keep this post short and sweet and say this is a great tool to incorporate in your day.
