This morning was such a beautiful one. It’s a bit cooler out today, so I started by opening the windows. The breeze felt so nice. There’s something so refreshing about having the outside air float into my home.
Lately I’ve been doing morning pages when I first get up. But today I made a cup of tea first. Just that little bit of time made quite the difference in what I was able to say. I find my mind is streaming with thoughts first thing in the morning, when I’m still caught somewhere between dreams and reality, but give it a little bit of time, and it calms down. I still got two pages, but lesson learned. Do it first thing, no delays.
One thing I love about the pages is how much it teaches me about myself, and how it centers and prepares me for the rest of the day. I can write all those thoughts down and leave them there rather than having them subconsciously bouncing around in my head.
That being said, the tea was pretty good and was a relaxing part of my morning. This summer I’ve not been as regular with my tea drinking because of the heat, I’m thankful to have it back. 🙂
What are your morning routines? Have you ever done morning pages? I’d love to hear your experience with them. 🙂
