STRETCH & REST CARE for the wellness warrior
How's the new year going so far?
Did you pick your one thing to focus on?
Or did you do like most people and overwhelm yourself with too many goals and give up?
It's normal to get off track when trying to change your habits.
It's also normal to have a hard time narrowing it down.
Here's a tool that can help you clear your head, tune in to what's most important, and get back on track any time of the year.
It helps you prioritize your day and also tap into your creative, intuitive side when you follow the directions closely.
A lot of artists and writers use it to start their day and turn on their creativity muscles.
It’s called Morning Pages.
How to do Morning Pages:
Pro Tip: Keep your notebook by your bed. Avoid looking at your phone before you do this exercise.
What if your “stuck” during your Morning Pages time? Here are some questions to get you in flow:
If you’ve tried working through these questions and still can’t get started on morning pages, you may be dealing with… major monkey mind!
Here’s a remedy and different tool to start with instead: Eliminate the NUTS in your life. NUTS are those nagging unfinished tasks that go round and round in your mind. I breakdown how to crack your NUTS in this blog post.
If your mind starts to resist or rebel after you’ve been doing morning pages for a while, keep going.
It’s a good sign. You’re on the verge of a breakthrough. Woohoo!!!
Writing this email has inspired me to do a month of Morning Pages. I hope you’ll join me. Every time I’ve done it in the past, I found it transformational and so freeing.
To Calm & Strong Creativity Muscles!
