Tie up the loose ends - It's an awesome time to shine a spotlight on things that need completionl, particularly if you are a writer, communicator, teacher of some sort. Getting the word out might need some word time reflections.
 
Mediation - the essential tool for life everyday day in every way. It takes practice, practice and more practice yet it is so powerful that no words can give you an entire explanation or experience. It will help you feel calmer and more connected.
