The practice of writing, even just one sentence a day, can be a powerful tool in gaining perspective on your happiness, fulfillment and pleasure.

This book is laid out so that you log one sentence a day for five years, and you cycle back through the journal each year to do so. This means Your five Feb. 14 entries will be on the same page, one under the other. Having just started this particular journaling practice, I'm not sure how I will feel about rereading the journal this way, but have been enjoying the invitation to maintain a brief daily journaling practice.

I bought this book for myself and for my daughter. We are both huge fans of Gretchen Rubin and her happiness project. I thought it would be a nice way to quickly journal ideas and blessings. But the book, while well made and attractive, is too small to be able to easily write in. I find I am scrunching my handwriting so I have room to write enough of a thought to make it meaningful.
I have made the commitment to doing this for at least a year, but I find it more frustrating than fun. I can't imagine doing it for the full 5 years.

If you like to write and look back over your life and activities over a period of years, this is a great journal in which to do so. The daily quotes on happiness at the top of the page are a fun addition. I love the appearance of this journal and the happy blue and yellow color scheme with handy blue ribbon to mark your place.

My grandmother used to keep a 5-Year Journal and after looking at old notebook Journals of mine I realized how interesting it was to look back at the different chapters of my life: going to school, raising children, working etc. Sometimes a few sentences can put you back into that day. For authors, aspiring or published, it might provide ideas for stories and books.

Buy yourself a pen you love and writing in this daily is a treat. I bought it along with Q and A a Day: 5-Year Journal which asks you a random question each day for 5 years and you can stretch your creative thinking with it. I write in both these journals at the same time each day. If you like this HAPPINESS PROJECT Journal, you should check out Rubin's THE HAPPINESS PROJECT book on how she applied happiness research to her own life to see how it changed her life. It is a very rewarding read and offers ideas on new activities to try.

This would make a great gift for someone you love who is reflective and likes to write.

This book is getting me in the habit of reflecting on my day. I'm not much of a writer, so I appreciate the book for its simplicity.

Love this! It is perfect for the busy person who loves to journal or capture gratitude, but who needs a reasonable way to do it! I love how you can compare one year to the next and the book is a perfect size to sit on your night stand, get packed in a suitcase or carry with you in a work bag. I've since give this to many friends for gifts!

I'm a big fan of the Happiness Project book and website, and I really liked the concept of this journal. However, I was disappointed to discover that it isn't standard-sized book (I didn't pay attention to the dimensions before buying...). The book is very thick and small, which makes it difficult to open and hold the pages back for writing. The lines for writing are also very close together; I prefer not to "cram" my words.

This is a compact little journal, cheerful and enjoyable to use. Each page has a different quote at the top.

While the whole point is to summarize your day, there are several lines for each of the 5 years that the journal will record, so you can actually write a couplefew sentences, if you need to.

I try to be positive when I write my sentence at the end of each day...

I've added stickers throughout my journal to brighten and personalize it. I look forward to writing in it. I bought one for my sister, too, and so it's kind of nice knowing that each evening she's writing in hers, often when I'm writing in mine.

I write haiku, so I like the idea of choosing words carefully, and saying just enough to give an overview of my day. It's almost like a newspaper headline...

This is a great journal, but I gave it four stars because it's a tad difficult to write in. The spaces aren't too big and it'd be a lot easier to work with if it were a paperback/softcover
