Do you dream? One way to start your day is to start by writing about your dream. Brainstorming and writing everything down you remember from it. Spend a few minutes daydreaming about your dream and what it meant to you. Don’t let yourself immediately get pulled into your daily routine, problems and responsibilities. Take a few quotes minutes and focus on your dream and make notes from it. Write about the environment, a character or what you were doing, or who you were talking to and what the conversation was about. For 15 or 20 minutes every morning, challenges you to write, brainstorm, and think about your dreams.
