I took a short (2-day) backpacking trip this past weekend with my daughter. I came back with a very different perspective on all the silly things that normally engage my mind.

What are some other ways you find helpful to get out of your own head? Here are some ideas. Please add yours.

  • Working with your hands.
  • Organizing a messy room.
