Empty the Sleepy Head


Right before I left to Bali, one of my best friends gave me this awesome book called “The Artist’s Way” written by Julia Cameron. Without writing down a whole review about this book, I wanted to share one major take-out, I got from it. 

The book describes a method how you can really start the day as fresh and empty as possible. Most people wake up, and start thinking straight away. What to eat for breakfast, that dreadful meeting at work, a difficult conversation with your other half, you name it,. Most of the time it is not positive and you end up dragging these thoughts along the entire day. So what this book encourages you to do is write 3 pages in your diary or agenda, or whatever you want to write in/on). It is not about what you write but that you write, that you empty that sleepy head. To really start fresh instead of starting to worry immediately about responsibilities, challenges and the notorious to-do-list. As you know I write quite a lot but mostly when I really just feel like it. But when I started this “ exercise, I found that it really helped me. It helped to really start fresh with no judgments, thoughts, insecurities or anything else. Those were already written down on paper so the rest of the day is there to have new stuff walking in your.
