Because it’s the journal we wish we had as children. After the success of The Five Minute Journal, we realized how important it is to start practicing positive habits at an early age. It helps you grow up confidently and handle life's challenges with greater ease.

Gratitude is a key component of mindfulness which has shown to help children improve their abilities to pay attention, calm down when they are upset, and make better decisions. In short, it helps with emotional regulation and cognitive focus.

Here are benefits users of The Five Minute Journal have experienced:

It all started in 2013, when Alex and UJ, founders of Intelligent Change, went on a long walk to talk about how self-development can be simpler.

On that walk, they came up with the idea for a condensed journaling practice - The Five Minute Journal, a simple structured format that utilizes the best positive psychology research to develop gratitude and mindfulness. Alex, UJ, and Mimi worked late into the night picking the linen for the cover, choosing just the right size, the right sequencing of quotes, and the right questions. It was the one journal they could finally stick with consistently!

 

Fast forward to present, and The Five Minute Journal has been used by over 300,000 people worldwide. We also partnered with Starbucks to promote The Five Minute Journal app which has over 300,000 downloads, and is making people everywhere happier every day.

We are on a mission to create simple, beautiful tools that turn complex personal development processes into actionable steps to help you self-actualize. 

 

We need your help to produce the Five Minute Journal for Kids and spread the gift of gratitude to as many children as possible! 

This project is promoted by Jellop, a direct­ response online advertising agency specializing in Kickstarter campaigns on Facebook Ads and Google AdWords. 

Risks and challenges

Risks are low. We have lots of experience producing and manufacturing journals and planners. We already have a deal in place with a talented manufacturer to produce journals if our goal is reached.

Our kickstarter may exceed our wildest expectations. If we hit a huge volume of orders, it may delay shipping times.

International Shipment - Upon successful funding, journals will ship to our US, Canadian, UK, Hong Kong, Netherlands, & Australian warehouses. If you live outside of these countries, shipping may take longer and be subject to your country's customs/duties fees.

We have already worked with a great artist and fantastic designer to create the book. It’s in the last stretch, which considerably cuts down on the risk of it being produced. We just need your help to spread the gratitude :)
