What unites the Serendib community? The power of writing. Our journal practice spotlight blog series celebrates journaling methods that empower and uplift those of us who love to write.
Imagine going through your day with a clear head, devoid of the remnants of last night’s dream, the pressing items on your to-do list, or that nagging thought that’s been hanging over you the last couple of days.
The morning pages practice helps you do just that.
A core part of Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way, the morning pages practice is very simple. Every morning, write three pages longhand of whatever is in your head. Think of it as stream-of-consciousness writing: just write whatever comes to you with the intention of getting what’s in your head out onto the paper.
One important thing to keep in mind is that what you write is for your eyes only. The whole point is that this writing isn’t polished, it’s not a first draft of anything. It doesn’t even have to make sense.
“Morning Pages provoke, clarify, comfort, cajole, prioritize and synchronize the day at hand. Do not over-think Morning Pages: just put three pages of anything on the page.” – Julia Cameron
This daily exercise can help you clear your mind before the day even starts and ultimately empower you to have more consciousness as you go through your day. Think of it as clearing out your mind for more thoughtful, structured thinking that will fuel your day.
