Worry BE GONE! Via “The Morning Pages”
Do you ever wake up in the morning with a ton on your mind? Or with a panicked, anxious, or worried feeling? Where everything in your life is swirling around in your head, and it’s stressing you out?
Here’s a super simple solution to handle that worry, so it doesn’t affect you for the rest of your day. This technique will help you…I swear.
It’s called the Morning Pages from Julia Cameron’s book, “The Artist’s Way.” The idea is that the first thing in the morning you write 3 pages in a journal (and I suggest buying a really cool one). You just write whatever is on your mind…stream of consciousness, no editing, so that you can get all of these things out of your mind, and onto paper, so they’re no longer swirling around and unconsciously affecting you. She explains it great in a three minute video. Click here to watch.
Take Charge Challenge:
So here is the challenge for Take Charge Tuesday of this week. Do the Morning Pages everyday for this entire week and see if you notice a difference in your day or in your life. Make sure you leave a comment on the Facebook page or blog to share your discoveries. I’ll be doing it along with you all. And get your friends involved…share this post with them! There’s nothing better than doing something fun (and beneficial for your life) with your girls. Leave a comment below if you’re IN.
