Morning Pages With KINRGY
Create a daily journaling practice to add clarity and presence into your life.
What Are Morning Pages?
Morning Pages are three pages of stream of consciousness writing done first thing every morning. This practice comes from the book The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron, which helps blocked artists dismantle their internal fears and limiting beliefs that prevent them from sharing their highest form of creativity and expression.
You do not have to consider yourself an artist or writer to do this practice. Morning Pages are for everyone. They are simply about putting pen to paper and letting your hand move across the page. Similar to KINRGY, Morning Pages are a mind-body-soul practice to help you meet yourself wherever you’re at, clear your channel and ground yourself into the present moment.
“Morning Pages provoke, clarify, comfort, cajole, prioritize and synchronize the day at hand. Do not overthink Morning Pages: just put three pages of anything on the page…and then do three more pages tomorrow.”
Why do Morning Pages?
Benefits of Morning Pages:
- Declutters your mind
- Increases self-awareness
- Stimulates creativity and flow
- Fosters presence
We all have a billion things that occupy our headspace – to-do’s, jobs, activities, family, events, life-stressors – that we don’t even realize are weighing us down and taking us out of the present moment. Morning pages are as if you’re clearing out the cobwebs within your subconscious to become more self-aware and present as you enter the rest of your day.

What Do You Write?
Anything and everything. There is no right or wrong way to do your Morning Pages. You can literally write, “I feel tired. Blah. Blah. I don’t know what to write. Jack annoyed me yesterday. What am I going to eat for breakfast after this? I had an interesting dream…” You can write lists, repeat the same sentence ten times, or even doodle all over your pages. You are simply being the observer of your own thoughts, and clearing them as they flow out of your mind and onto the paper.
How to Start Your Morning Pages
- Acquire a journal and a pen
- Wake up in the morning
- Write three pages of stream of consciousness
You may feel unmotivated to write some days, or begin your first page and dread the two more pages to come. Give yourself that extra push and write anyways. That little extra effort goes a long way – it’s oftentimes in these moments where you will experience your deepest insights, breakthroughs, and growth.
Keep up this habit consistently and witness the magic in your life unfold.
