Back in January, Bishop Laurie invited us to join her in a new spiritual practice for the new year: the 5-minute journal. A LOT has happened since then (2020, you will be remembered). But this increases, rather than diminishes our need for grounding spiritual practices. And September is just a good a time as January to try something new.
The 5-minute journal is simple, as shared by Pr. Reuter-Harrah in the video below. He chose to purchase and download the app ($4.99), you could also buy a paper journal (24.99) or just use a piece of pen and a paper. Here are the questions:
Every morning take 5 minutes to note:
- 3 gratitudes
- 3 things that would make today great
- An affirmation for the day: I am . . .
Every evening take five minutes to note:
- 3 amazing things that happened today
- 3 things that could have made today better
