I’ve added another simple habit to my life.
It’s called, The Morning Pages.
This was daunting to begin. As you know I like my mornings, and coffee is an intricate part. You are to write three pages by hand, as soon after you awake. Or in my case, as soon as humanly possible.
The idea is to start before the brain starts.
The mind can quickly begin shooting off ideas about my day, so this has been an interesting exercise.
The first day was effortless. My mind wasn’t fully awake, so it felt like my heart was dictating the writing. There must be a small window of time to be in this space, because the next day I waited to begin.
It was a struggle between heart and mind.
So, the key is….do it before anything else.
Therein lies the beauty of the Morning Pages.
