What is a Morning Pages Journal and Why Would You Want to Keep One?

A morning pages journal is a daily practice of writing three pages of stream-of-consciousness thoughts, as introduced by Julia Cameron in her book "The Artist's Way."

People keep morning pages journals to clear their minds, tap into their creativity, and address personal issues, fostering self-discovery and artistic expression.

Morning pages are generally free writing pages without prompts, but one could build on the benefits of using morning journals by adding pages with weekly guided reflection or exploring new ideas and discoveries. You could also also include trackers for progress.  

You could add:
  • Stream Of Consciousness Prompts
  • Gratitude & Simple Pleasures Prompts
  • Current Challenges & Frustrations Prompts
  • Daily Growth & Inner Guidance Prompts

Or just keep it traditional and keep it blank with 3 pages per day.
