Who knew the answer to all my problems was talking to myself first thing in the morning? I took a month-long social media hiatus, then returned as a JOURNALING MONSTER. Now, according to you, I'm glowing differently, my attitude has improved, and I have a way better understanding of who I am, what I want and what I need. The book I reference is The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. DIVE DEEPER

Starting from the point of scepticism towards routine and disciplined practices, Flex recounts how a month-long social media hiatus led her to adopt and rigorously maintain a routine of writing three pages of stream-of-consciousness journaling first thing every morning. She shares how this practice impacted her mental clarity, creativity, self-discovery, and discipline, even amidst challenges like illness and lack of motivation. Through this journey, she uncovers the essence of morning pages as a form of meditation and mental purging to facilitate a deeper connection with oneself. Flex illuminates the importance of engaging with this practice without dilution or shortcuts, advocating for its raw, therapeutic potential to emerge only when done as intended. She wraps up the episode by addressing frequently asked questions about the practice, emphasizing the unique personal insights and 'epiphanies' one discovers through consistent engagement with morning pages.
