Do Something Mindless

I've been pretty stressed recently getting out a few launches over the past few weeks. When I'm run down, I default to easy and have found myself mindlessly browsing Instagram to calm my racing mind. Honestly, it does work, but I never feel 'better' after.

Of course, my five-year-old offered a better solution. "Mommy, can we color?" Hell yes, Chloe. Coloring not only allows me to connect with her, but it zens me out.

Coloring is just one mindless solution. Others include puzzles, knitting, or Sudoku. What's yours?
