Soul Breaks

I recently started a new hobby: Taking soul breaks. There’s really not much to it. I just disconnect completely for an hour or so each day to sit and clear my mind.

Sometimes I use the time to make goal lists, to jot down new ideas or to watch a new TV show. I paint. I sing. I dance. I swim. I laugh. I talk to myself. One of the best things that I’ve noticed since I started this project a few months ago is that I’m calm for hours after I return to the daily grind. I don’t sweat the small stuff, I tackle deadlines with a smile and I don’t fret when it seems like I’ll never get to the end of my ever-growing to-do list. After you’re done flipping through this issue, I encourage you to take a soul break of your own. Who knows? It might just turn into a new hobby.
