Remember the scene in The Holiday when Kate Winslet gets an unrequited text from her newly engaged ex and immediately closes all automated blinds in her plush Los Angeles bedroom and completely shuts the world out? That pivotal rom-com moment—when her pain renders her incapable of confronting even the simple task of being awake—represents how many of us felt on Wednesday morning and, to an extent, how we are still feeling today. The silver lining is that now the weekend is here, and you actually can escape the outside world for a day or two.

While we know very well that we must go on, stay positive, and be the change we want to see in the world, we can also take a respite to hit the reset button after an emotionally charged week. What do you do when you're feeling defeated and you just want to curl up in a ball and shut the world out? Try this 10-step routine to entirely hit the reset button—we promise you'll feel a little better by Monday.
