When you work the usual way with from the frontend I think a Kernel quit 
(either from the Evaluate menu or just by evaluating Quit) will be the 
most convenient and reliable way to reset the session. The next 
evaluation will automatically start a new, fresh kernel. There are ways 
to reset the Kernel without quitting it, but on a modern computer the 
restart is so fast that I wouldn't struggle with all the eventualities 
that arise when trying to do a reliable full reset.
