If I'm making changes in my init.lua file, is there anyway to have those changes reflect in my current copy of Neovim without restarting the editor?

Not limited to mappings, but is there something that can clear out the settings and like re source them?

One method I found, and I'm not sure it's the best method is with

:luafile ~/.config/nvim/init.lua

That seems to reinitialize the mappings.
