  2. Go to the bullet section in your daily journal (if used, then flip to the BULLET NOTEBOOK in back of your journal)

  3. Allow your mind to flow, and to draw what you feel. Try not to think about anything else, just focus on what you’re feeling.

  4. After you’re finished, use the NOTES + IDEAS section or the REFLECTIONS + TAKEAWAYS section) to reflect on your feelings

Why This Recipe works

This simple shift is extremely calming and stimulating, and opens up your mind to a whole new world. Only after you cleanse your emotions fully can you approach your life and your work with a clean pallete and fresh perspective.

This one is a lot easier than it looks. If you’re a master artist, great—draw away! But if you’re like the rest of us, just start with shapes and colors.

Your turn! If you’re feeling like there’s a lot on your mind, try this simple shift! Release the hold you have on your mind. Monitor your emotions. How does your heart feel after you draw?
