“Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths.” ~Etty Hillesum
Are you the person who needs to be running 24/7 in order to feel valuable? Are you ever ashamed to admit you need a nap? Is your conversation usually weighted with references to how busy you are?
Rest is good for body and soul, and wonderful things happen when we allow ourselves to unwind. Our muscles recover, our stress levels drop. We’re more receptive to fresh ideas when we sit still, breathe deeply, and welcome the silence. When we’re relaxed, we’re also more fun to be around. What would happen if you took time out to do nothing, just for a day? ~CL
