Morning Pages are three pages of longhand, stream of consciousness writing, done first thing in the morning. There is no wrong way to do Morning Pages– they are not high art. They are about anything and everything that crosses your mind– and they are for your eyes only
Discovered this through Elle Luna. It sounds quite interesting.
I think she once called it “brain drain,” and that’s a really wonderful description of how it feels. It only takes about fifteen minutes, and through the daily ritual of writing, you move mental clutter out of your mind and onto the page.
I’m going to give it a go with my daily journal. I will add everything that’s running through my head. Although It definitely wont be three pages long!
Sounds very therapeutic
Reminds me of:
Tiffany Shlain does something similar at the start of her family’s weekly Shabbat (a technology free day).
