I also seem to turn to knitting at these times. Knitting is my favourite and the meditative stitches soothe my soul in a way nothing else does.
Another thing I love is mini things and the two have been combined in my latest knitting exploits -
Anna Hrachovec of Mochimochi Land designs the cutest knitting patterns and then does funny animations with them, the yeti one is my favourite!
I'm gaining my equilibrium back by knitting tiny zombies and tiny chickens :D
Do you ever have periods like this? What do you do to get back out the other side?
