This page intentionally left blank.

By Casey Helbling

Throughout history, printed documents often included blank pages near the end with “This page intentionally left blank.” There are many reasons why early publishers maintained this practice. For some, this empty space provided test takers a place to take notes. For others, it created a even page numbered document that could more easily be printed.

This week, work on creating some intentionally left blank space in your mind. Use that space to take notes and think things through. Alternatively you could use that space as to reflect on out of balance things in your life. Use this space to even things out and find your balance. In a world that is constantly blurring the lines between “On” and “Off”, “Working” and “Not working”, use this blank space buffer as a way to mentally separate being on/off, working/not working.
