I find that these days, that my mind-clearing activities are very different. Now after a stressful week (like my doozie of a week last week), I find myself drawn to projects, not vegitating. Now, I don't mean that I go and tackle all the housecleaning (though my house could REALLY use it). But I find myself wanting to finish one of my creative projects - spend a few hours tackling the scrapbooking, sew an outfit for Tucker, paint something, etc. I want to spend my downtime getting my creativity out there and creating a finished project I can be proud of! The process helps my mind get off of all of my stress and focus on completion, and in the end, I have something adorable like
to show for it! My house is still a WRECK, but I got many, many of my crafting projects done. (I got another pair of pants made for Tucker, finished FIVE tutus, made a Valentine's day package for Carly, and made a small thing for Carly's birthday in OCTOBER - a little ahead on that one.) My head feels cleared, my craft pile is much smaller, and my heart is VERY happy with this adorable green outfit!
What do YOU do to clear your head? Answer in a comment, or if you take the activity to your own blog, put a link in my comments so I'll know to check it out.
