On Monday, I wrote a somewhat whiny post lamenting that I don’t have 1,000 subscribers. In my defense, I’ve been feeling very restless lately. It probably doesn’t help that the spring equinox (or Ostara for my pagan friends) is Monday and today…it’s snowing. The turn of the seasons…especially winter to spring and summer to fall…always have me feeling restless.
Yesterday, I bounced from one thing to another. I did a lot, but felt like I’d wasted the whole day. At 4, I settled down on our couch with a cup of tea and a story ending I’ve been working on. I wrote and then, I felt better! Who knew? Writing is the solution to my restlessness! Or at least, yesterday it was.
So what about you? What helps you when you’re feeling restless? Let’s hear it.

100% agree. Writing ALWAYS helps 👌👌
When I can manage it, permission to actually slob out for a while. A nap. A walk around the garden with my dogs. A cuppa. A small chore. And yes, writing!!!
My husband always knows when I have been away from my writing routine for even a minute too long. Apparently, I get grouchy. All I know is that I am unsettled and my thoughts, ideas, and fears are crowded in a mess all screaming for attention. It's not until I sit down with a pen and paper or my computer that they begin to sort themselves out.
Organizing. When I feel really restless finding something to organize can actually help me ground. Weird i know! But sometimes it takes me a while to figure out that’s what I need.
