try this

Whenever I feel a little overwhelmed by my to-do lists or deadlines or projects, I find that often the best remedy for overworking and overthinking is to step away from the screens and do something with my hands. Something that requires tactile senses, a deep concentration beyond that of coding and Photoshop design minutiae. So take a minute this week and try this: find some materials worthy of your creativity, be they watercolors or fabric scraps. Carve out a chunk of time to devote to your craft. Find an item of inspiration like I did, and then see where your hands go and how your mind follows. Let me know how this little experiment goes for you — wishing you all sorts of luck and happy surprises.
