Practice Makes Perfect
The more you practice your writing the better you’ll become at the craft. Also, writing allows you to get your thoughts organized and out of your head. Doing this allows you to be more present through the day as well as more focused and collected.
Writing for just 30 minutes makes a world of difference. If you write in the morning shortly after you wake up it’s actually one of the best pieces of any morning routine you can practice.
Write When you Wake up
The best time to write if you’re doing it once daily is when you wake up. This is typically my favorite time to write also.
My morning usually goes something like this:
- Wake up
- Brush my teeth
- Writing for 30 minutes at least
- Short workout for about 5–15 minutes (pullups, situps, pushups)
- Get dressed
- Start work
Almost anytime I write in the morning it will either be in my journal about what I’ve done recently or it will be a Medium post like this one.
It starts your day off right by helping to wake you up, especially if you’re not a morning person. It also prepares your mind for the day by allowing you to express your ideas and thoughts early in the morning which usually leads to more productive days overall.
Start Writing Daily
It doesn’t matter if you want to be an author, enjoy writing, or just want a good practice to help you wake up in the morning. This will work for you no matter what you want it for so give it a try.
I’ve been doing it for over a year now. Just recently I’ve been doing it with the intention of posting it to Medium in the form of an article or blog.
