It’s one of my mantras.
I asked a group recently to describe Rest, and they said,
Lying on the sofa
Having a siesta or nap
Having a holiday
Stop snooze slumber
Rest in peace (different to the R.I.P. kind)
And the feeling was
that you work until you are drained of energy
and then you collapse and have a rest.
And I am saying
why not plan regular intentional times of rest
to maintain the energy and enthusiasm you need to work.
