Maira Kalman believes that wonderful things happen when your brain is empty, and I agree. When you’re full of ideas it’s hard to think of anything new. When you’re empty you’re open to new possibilities, you’ll entertain seemingly crazier thoughts, and you’ll have the desire to seek out what interests you.

And then there’s work. Life can be overwhelming at times. When you can’t get off of the same train of thought, chances are your brain is a little full. It’s important to remember to let go, disconnect, and empty your brain out now and again.
