The first thing we do in the morning can really determine how we feel for the rest of the day. Sometimes, waking up from a bad dream can put a damper on our day. Or maybe you’re stressing about all the tasks you still have to finish. There can be a million thoughts and feelings rushing through our mind first thing in the morning. That’s where the idea of morning pages comes in. Starting your morning writing 3 full pages of pure stream of consciousness lets you get all that out before you tackle your day. Getting all the guck out of the gutter first thing in the morning leaves room for a clean, fresh slate, and will help with your focus throughout the day.
