Just $24.99 per deck!

The simplest (+ award-winning!) tool to increase your happiness.

(And it fits inside your pocket…) The practice of positive thinking is powerful. Really powerful. An overwhelming body of science says it makes us happier, healthier, more optimistic, more energetic… and the list goes on!

The Top Five Question Cards are a simple, effective tool to help you experience these benefits for yourself.

With these 50 thought-provoking prompt questions, you’ll be able to hone in on the high points of your day, figure out what truly makes you happy, and build a confident, constructive mindset so that you can live the way you want to live, and feel the way you want to feel…

It’s all about priming yourself for positivity,
and turning happiness into
a habit.

Focus on the good in your life, right this very moment!

It’s easy to spend your life wishing and waiting for that overseas trip, or that big career break, or even just holding out for the weekend.

But life is 24/7 – life is now! And lasting happiness is found by revelling in the little moments, not waiting for the big ones.

These questions will help you notice the amazing, remarkable, memorable moments that are happening in your life, each and every day. From the tiny to the tremendous, you’ll be enhancing your wellbeing and setting yourself up for success with every card.

These questions will help you figure out what actually makes you happy. (‘Cause sometimes, we can be a little clueless…)

You might think it’s getting praise from your boss, or finishing off an important project, or enjoying a magnificent meal at a restaurant. And yes, those things are great…

But from the 10 000+ happy memories I’ve collected over the past nine years, I can tell you this: when you dig beneath the surface, you’ll find it’s the tiny, little moments that make you burst with joy most often.

Whether it’s snuggling with your kids, patting your puppy, or climbing into your freshly made bed at night – it’s the little moments that make the biggest difference. And when you tune into them, and figure out which things actually make you happy… you can go do a whole lot more of ‘em!

These cards will also reveal what makes the people around you happy…

Esther was taken by surprise when her four-year-old son said that the highlight of his day was when his kinder teacher let the whole class squish together on the slippery-dip to make a ‘slide sandwich’…

Adam was surprised when his wife revealed that the most fulfilling thing she’d done that day was not delivering the client presentation she’d been working on for months, but constructing a makeshift pillow fort with their two kids…

My own husband blew my mind when he announced one day that his top moment has been when we were cleaning the house together. (“Seriously? Cleaning?” I asked. “Yep,” he replied, “we felt like a team, and it made me really happy.”)

It’s not always easy to figure out what our favourite people are thinking. These cards will also help you start powerful, positive conversations with them, so that you can strengthen your connection and deepen your understanding of each other. (And seriously: their answers might just astonish you!)

“The application of this practical and fabulous tool promotes the daily mindful cultivation of positive thoughts, feelings and experiences into the fabric of our brains. The results include lasting inner strengths which promote health, wellbeing and happiness. Our brain ‘default position’ can literally be transformed from a negative focus to the positive.”

Kristen Barnes, Psychologist & Life Coach Essentially You

As seen on TEDx

I’m Clare Desira – writer, speaker, coach, product developer, and founder of the Top Five Movement. After spending the last 12 years designing, delivering and directing personal development and leadership programs, to say that I’m passionate about facilitating growth and transformation would be an understatement!

I began recording my ‘top five moments’ of every day back in 2006, and have now collected more than 10, 000+ positive memories. As the benefits of my ‘happiness habit’ started spilling over into all different areas of my life (my health, relationships, mindset, the works!) I knew I needed to spread the word about the incredible power that positive thinking can have on our lives.

In 2012, I shared this message on the TEDx stage, and amidst the rave reviews and overwhelming response, realised that I had sparked a positivity revolution – the Top Five Movement.

Since then, I’ve been on a mission to empower people to choose happiness and notice the tiny moments of joy that can all-too-easily pass us by. Along the way, I noticed that although my tribe LOVED the idea of recording a daily ‘top five’, they often struggled to remember those little moments and to make time for this new habit…

That’s how these cards came about.

This simple practice has undeniably changed my life. I’m a better wife, daughter, sister, friend, employee, and person because of it.

I created these cards so that you can experience the difference too, and live as the happiest, healthiest version of you – your best self – every, single day.

It’s so simple, but so effective.
You’ll spark new conversations.
Unleash positivity. Expand your mind.

… And find yourself feeling a whole lot happier along the way.
