While mindless listening to YouTube videos at work, I stumbled across a really cool channel called Lavendaire. I instantly fell in love. Anything that is self-help to success, goal setting, being productive is something that really pulls me in. Do I actually apply these things and have my life all together? Come on, I’m not Wonder Woman.
But this channel is full of some many little gems. My first video that I watched as on different types of journaling. I am a journaler, have been since elementary. I’ve heard a lot of people online talking about morning pages and I thought I would give it a try. And I loved it.
Morning pages is essentially writing 3 pages of thoughts. Don’t think about what you are writing. Just write whatever comes to mind. It helps to clear the mind of excess clutter so you can have a clear head going into your day. This helped me a lot. I just used an empty composition notebook that has been on myself for approximately 5 years.
I keep my bullet journal on my desk and in my bag all time. If I don’t write something down, I will forget it. And I end up finding myself thinking about whatever it is all day. So I write down to forget and come back to it later.
Morning pages does really well for me. I can’t get a lot accomplished in the morning unfortunately (work starts at 6:30am for me). But I find that doing ‘afternoon pages’ or ‘evening pages’ has the same affect. To clear my head and move on.
Have any of you ever tried morning pages? Let me know in the comments!
