52 weeks of new exercises, meditations, and “time-ins”

A journal to record your thoughts, feelings, and personal growth

Life-changing insights of philosophers, psychologists, artists,

questions, and “time-ins” that allow you to pause and reflect.

You can engage in these activities every day to stimulate your creativity,
