Every once in a while life gets a little more crazy than usual. I abandon my routines, my spaces get cluttered (or just more cluttered), I’ve been away from home, and migraine interferes. When that happens, I try taking a day to reset. To clear some space, both mentally and physically, prioritize, and get back to it.
Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.Anne Lamott
A day to reset probably looks wildly different for everyone, but here are some of things, in no particular order, that I do:
- indulge in a long journalling session
- a good playlist on high volume
- lots of list-making
- a thorough tidy-up of my creative/work space
- taking a nap
Tomorrow I’ll be ready to tackle the lists with a clear head and a clear workspace, and get back to practices and routines.

P.P.S. This is the second to last page in this journal. It feels a little bittersweet since I’ve loved writing in it, and yet I’m excited for the next one.
