2. Keep a journal. Those of us looking to get more in touch with our inner mind might enjoy writing our thoughts down day to day. It's the perfect creative outlet, not to mention a great way to document your state of mind throughout the year.
3. Practice yoga. If the exercise aspect doesn't appeal to you, do it just to free your mind. In a day of stress and responsibilities, an hour of yoga is one of the best ways to be alone with your thoughts. You'll walk away feeling liberated, and mentally stimulated.
