I discovered Morning Pages six months ago while reading “The Artist’s Way” by Julie Cameron. My Great Aunt sent me the book to help me develop my writing. I began using Morning Pages daily and my entire life changed.

Since I started Morning Pages–

I haven’t drunk a sip of alcohol or cared to in these past six months.
Started and maintained a daily yoga and meditation routine.
I lost 30lbs.
I read 11 books.
The once difficult and draining relationship I had with my mother has become so strong that I can say with the utmost confidence that my mom is my very best friend.
The depression and anxiety that plagued my life for nearly a decade are gone.
I am seriously the happiest I’ve ever been in my life and I have to give credit to Morning Pages.

Morning Pages are simple and impossible to mess up. It’s simply three handwritten pages of whatever thought crosses your mind.

If you struggle to put something down on the page just write:
“I have nothing to write…” for three pages.

The goal is to get whatever worries or concerns out of your head and onto the paper:
Ex, I have to do laundry today. I hate laundry… Why hasn’t Marcus called? Is he mad at me?… I need to dye my hair again. I’m like an old hag…

It might seem crazy at first (it did to me) but regardless of what comes out– magic is happening.

The truth is that you won’t be able to write the same problems and issues day after day. Eventually, you’ll come to a solution. That’s what happened to me.

I found myself writing about all the things I wanted to do but never did like yoga and reading books.

I was able to see the true nature of the relationships in my life which allowed me to cut some people lose. It also gave me a new perspective on the people in my life that truly supported me.

Writing Morning Pages have unblocked me creatively and spiritually by allowing me to see and control my thoughts.

I would suggest that you don’t go back and read them– at least not at first. Don’t let anyone read them. Just like you should judge every single thought that crosses your mind– just let it come up, give your thought a space on the page and then let it go.

I feel as though all my inner-garbage-talk gets thrown onto the Pages and then my mind is clear and strong for the rest of the day.

If you have a busy morning then make them Afternoon Pages. These pages should be a source of comfort, not another burden on your to-do list.

You can make Morning Pages whatever you want but regardless, they will be a source of inspiration and peace.

I challenge you to try Morning Pages for one week and see how amazing your life becomes.
