    Thanks Mike. I started creating that ‘white space’ for myself last winter and have never looked back. It has done wonders for my creativity and downtime!

    Love this Mike! Although challenging right now with the schedule I have going on, I’m still trying to create at least 30-45mins of ‘white space’ right before bed. This is time when I’m not allowed to work on projects or read textbooks but can either do nothing or engage in any activity that is completely disconnected from school. Makes a huge difference!
