What do you do, or where to you go to clear your head and take a moment to reset? Is it a regular dog walk, a bench by the beach, a cosy café or somewhere in your home.
Note down a beautiful walk you enjoy.
Where is it, what will people find?
Draw your most treasured spot to sit when life gets full on.
Why is it so special?
